When it comes to finishing the interior walls and ceiling of a building, ready for the final interior décor to be applied, there is a choice of two techniques: traditional wet plastering or the more modern alternative, dry lining.
Dry Lining can be used on internal walls, stud walls and ceilings – ideal for covering uneven surfaces and hiding loose wires and cables. Basically, it consists of cladding the surfaces with plasterboard. It’s extremely popular because it is quick to apply and allows for a layer of insulation to be added behind it.
Traditional plaster takes time to dry, but is the best solution for irregularly shaped rooms, or period properties. It also provides a stronger base for attaching wall-mounted fixtures like shelving, radiators, heavy paintings or even a TV set.
Skimming – the practice of applying a thin coating of plaster – can be used to rejuvenate either existing plaster on the walls, or to provide a smooth finish to dry-lined walls and ceilings.
FB Finishes offer a full and comprehensive range of expert rendering services, so you are spoilt for choice if you’re a homeowner, architect, building contractor or developer who decides to render the outside of a building for aesthetic or practical reasons. Applying a visually appealing coating to the outside of a house or commercial building is a sure-fire way to ensure that the exterior walls are protected from the elements. It’s also a great solution for covering up imperfections and safeguarding failing brickwork, ensuring the walls will be preserved for years the come – and the bonus is it adds an extra layer of insulation to the building.
