What we do


Skimming to plasterboard and other solid surfaces is a popular method of providing a smooth, seamless finish ready for decoration. This method of plastering offers a quick solution compared to traditional methods. The surface preparation involves joint reinforcement to avoid cracking.

Float and Set

Preferred by masonry lovers, either sand and cement renders or gypsum backing plaster are trowelled directly onto brick or block work.  Both are finished off with a tight coat of finishing plaster that can be decorated.

Dot and Dab (Drilyner Basic)

Dot and dab is a simple and quick way to directly bond plasterboard to solid walls. Dot & Dab can also be used to cover poor quality plaster work.

Skimming Over Artex Ceilings & Walls

Artex ceilings and walls can be plastered to a smooth finish, this is done by either scraping the high areas of the artex or by applying a base coat plaster (bonding coat) to flatten the artex down. An adhesive (PVA) is then applied to the surface. It is then ready for a finish coat of plaster.

Patching and Repairs

Often small damaged areas can be repaired and patched into existing plaster to avoid replastering whole walls or ceilings.  A visit to your home is required to determine whether or not his can be done.

Traditional Lime Plastering

Lime plaster, used in many historic buildings, is type of plaster composed of hydrated lime (slaked lime), sand and water.  Traditional lime plaster often also contains horse hair for reinforcement.

Replacement of Old or Damaged Ceilings

Removing old ceilings can be a messy job, however, with our site visit and guide to preparing your home the process does run smoothly.  Old ceilings are taken down and bagged ready for your disposal.  Joists are de-nailed and new gyproc plasterboard is screwed into place ready for plastering.


This is a decorative cast plaster that is used to mask the join between wall & ceiling. Coving comes in a range of sizes and styles to suit individual taste and will frame and enhance your wall and ceiling lines.

Installation of Plasterboard and Stud Wall Partitioning

Plasterboard is an inner layer of gypsum sandwiched between two outer layers of lining paper. The most common type of board used is 12.5mm plasterboard, other available types of plasterboard include moisture resistant, fire resistant, insulated or soundproof board.

Internal walls made up of a timber frame can have plaster board attached directly,  It’s quick to construct, lightweight and strong.  With the use of  studwork construction means that pipes and wires can be easily run within the wall where needed.  Stud wall partitioning can be used to divide up a large space and to box in pipes.

External Plastering (Rendering)

Applying render to a wall is a great way to protect it from the elements. This is a sand and cement mix that is applied in two coats to the exterior of buildings, the first coat known as the scratch coat enables the second coat to properly adhere. A top coat is then applied and finished to a smooth surface ready for painting.
