Frequently Asked Questions

We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions, however if there is something you would like to know that is not covered here, please contact us.


1. Question: Can I do the plastering myself?

Answer: It is not recommended as we have been in the trade for over thirty years and it is not as easy as it is looks to get a good flat professional finish.


2. Question: How long do I need to wait for plaster to dry out before decorating?

Answer: It really depends on the conditions, however usually you can decorate the ceiling in about 3 days and the walls take a little longer.


3. Question: Can I apply paint directly on plastered walls?

Answer : Not really, as it is always best to seal the walls with a good quality plaster sealer.


4. Question: I have mould on my walls, do I need to replaster them?

Answer : Usually not, if it is just a mould. However if you have damp walls, then it is best to find out the cause, sort it out and re-plaster walls.


5. Question : How long does it take to plaster a room?

Answer : Depending on the size and complexity of the room, most rooms can be finished in two or three days.


6. Question : If I want to plaster a room, do I need to remove the carpets?

Answer : There is no need to remove carpets from rooms, we try and take as much care as possible where carpets cannot be removed and sheet up where needed.


7. Question : What materials are best for plastering?

Answer : We only use the best British materials, which comply to British Standards Institution.
