Belmont Dry-lining & Plastering

Craig Mcleod


Skimming to plasterboard and other solid surfaces is a popular method of providing a smooth, seamless finish ready for decoration.  The plaster is normally applied to a 2 – 3mm thickness depending on the background you are working to.


Patching and Repairs

Small damaged areas can be repaired and patched into existing plaster to avoid replastering whole walls or ceilings.  


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

Dot and dab is a simple and quick way to directly bond plasterboard to solid walls.  Once set, the boards are ready for skimming.


Skimming over Artex

Lightly scraping back any high spots of the textured pattern, then sealing the entire surface with a sealant agent.  Once dry, two coats of finishing plaster are applied and worked to a smooth finish ready for painting


Turning old into New

Old tired walls can be re-plastered turning an old house into a new one with ease.


Replacing Old or Damaged Ceilings

Old ceilings are taken down.  Joists are de-nailed and new  plasterboard is screwed into place ready for plastering. Alternatively depending on damage ceilings can be over boarded then skimmmed.    


Plasterboard Installation / Stud Wall Partitioning

Varying the weight and strength of the lining paper will give the finished board different properties – available among others as soundbloc, moisture resistant and fire proof board.


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.
