Skimming Services Northampton
Skimming or skim plastering is a plastering technique applied to an existing wall to produce a smooth, uniform quality finish. Unlike rendering, or plasterer’s putty skim-coating does not create decorative patterns on the surfaces.
Skimming plaster may be applied either as a dry powder mixed with water and then spread onto building surfaces using trowels or sprayed from a specially adapted spray gun equipped with vacuum nozzles called atomisers.
It is also used over large areas, including roofs and floors, where it acts as a waterproof layer between the surface below such as concrete slabs – working like roofing felt but with much better anti-fungal properties than asphalt products, especially when used to protect the ferrous metal from rust.
Rendering Services Northampton
Rendering is a specialised plastering service which we offer to our customers. Exterior rendering is the process of applying a waterproof material on an exterior wall, usually for decoration or protection purposes.
It creates a protective barrier between the external environment and your property. This render will make a more attractive and quality appearance while protecting against things like frost damage and dampness from seeping through walls.
Homeowners who wish to protect their house investments by applying a protective layer of render. When a property is rendered, the walls are covered in a thick layer of lime plaster.
Depending on the type of work needed, our plasterers will either skim coat or re-rendering the property with a new render to give it that fresh look again. One of the benefits of re-rendering is that it will help protect the walls from the elements.

Aspects of Plastering
Plastering is an extremely important part of any construction project. In many cases, plastering is the final step in completing a room or house that has endured hours of building work and other renovations.
Northampton Plastering Pros provides an excellent service for customers who are looking to refurbish their homes with new plastered walls as well as those people who need assistance repairing damaged areas. It is also one of the most difficult DIY tasks for homeowners, so it is a wise investment.
If you try your own plastering and make a mistake , you’ll have to redo the entire wall which would be costly and time -consuming and could potentially ruin your entire project. Good plastering work is a skill that needs to be learned and practiced, but the basics can easily be taught.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is plastering so expensive?
Creating walls with a smooth finish can be a time-consuming and expensive process. It requires a lot of labour and materials. There are a lot of steps involved with plastering that extend the time necessary to complete the job. Plaster is mixed in batches and poured onto sheets or panels called laths, then left to dry for up to twenty-four hours. The more coats applied, the smoother finish you will get – which increases your bill as well! Suppose there’s an issue like water damage at any point during the process. In that case, it’ll have to be skimmed over by applying another layer first before plastering will continue again, taking even longer than usual.
The type of material also plays into how much you pay for plasterer services: hardier natural products like cement render cost less than wetter synthetic materials like fibreglass, but both can still be equally difficult.
Can you plaster yourself?
Plastering looks easy, but it’s a skill that takes time to learn. You can either get a plasterboard and roughcast kit, which you’ll need lots of time and patience with; alternatively, buy pre-mixed powdered plasters like lime putty – but note that these are much more expensive than ready mixed ones from your local builders’ merchants. Preparation is essential for DIY success: make sure you have enough space and a flat surface to work on, then cover it with newspaper or polythene sheeting. If you’re not so confident in your skills, we recommend hiring professional plasterers.
Is it hard to become a plasterer?
Plastering is a skilled trade, so it takes years of training and apprenticeship before someone is qualified. You can train at a local college and get your certificate as an apprentice. It can take around four years of training. It also requires you to be in good physical shape as plastering is a physically demanding job.
How much do plasterers charge per day UK?
Plasterers charge anywhere from £70 to £160 per day.
Fees may be higher if a plasterer needs to travel long distances to get to the job site or will need to spend more time on site for any reason, such as removing and reinstalling carpeting that was not removed before plastering walls.
The fee can increase for extra work such as taping and filling large cracks in the plaster, or if there is a lot of other preparation required before plasterers can start working on the site.
Can I skim a wall myself?
If you are looking to skim a wall yourself, then there are some things you should consider. You will need: plastering trowel, slater’s putty or mortar mix, tape measure and scraper (if the ceiling is not insulated). If you want a professional finish on your walls, it would be best to hire a plasterer.
