Plastering Contractors

Plasters carry out the plastering whether on the internal walls or to render the exterior walls.  Very often the plastering contractor will also carry out dry-lining.

Dry Lining is where plasterboard sheeting is fixed to the wall either with dabs or mushroom fixtures or screwed to timber battens.  The boards are then taped and filled ready for painting or wall-papering.

There are specialist plasters who work on old buildings where lime-based render is required.

Words associated with plasters are

  • Set Coat
  • Top Coat
  • Skim Coat
  • Gypsum

Plasters also carry out the fitting of coving and plaster mouldings, ceiling roses and plaster dado.

It is possible to carry out this type of work yourself and the Irish based Gypsum Industries carries a great range of products and product guides on their website http://www.gypsum.ie/diy/diycustomers.aspx
