Modern Plasters

British Gypsum

Modern Plasters come in many varieties, but the most commonly used in this country is Britism Gypsums Thistle Multi Finish. Its a powdery material added with clean water, then whisked and applied to both old walls and plasterboard. British Gypsum does not advise to plaster over older lath and plaster lime walls, for this it is best to remove the old wall or ceiling (a messy job) and/or fit plasterboard using either wooden batons or British Gypsums Gyplyner.

Over Artex

Artex has quickly gone out of fashion, for many various reasons. It is possible to use a thistle plaster over an old artex surface. Yet artex comes in many different varieties, and some types even contain Asbestos. Thin layers of artex may have so be completely removed and scraped away before replastering, as they can loose their bond to the initial surface. Thicker Artex may need to be treated by Blue Grit, to ensure that the new plaster does not fail and that an even bonding coat (usually PVA) is applied to the surface. Also thicker Artex with prominent stipples will need to be scraped back, but again should be checked for Asbestos before doing so. Contact emscar for more details about testing for Asbestos and its removal.

Dry lining & Plasterboard

Dry lining your walls, or ceiling, with plasterboard is generally a pretty safe bet. Its easy to dismantle later down in life, without making too much mess, its easy to plaster over, paint over and wallpaper. Its fairly easy to patch up if damage occur, and with the right fixings can support a fair amount of weight. You can even use Artex, or traditional plasters onto plasterboard.

Super Smooth Finish

The most even, and smoothest finishes will appear in building which have been plasterboarded. It requires only one coat of Thistle Multi Finish over plasterboard. Plasterboard must not be left too long in its bare state before being plastered. Multi Finish on Plasterboard

Tape and Jointing is where plasterboard with tapered edges is fixed to batons or gyplyner. Then paper tape is plastered between the joints to create a smooth finish. I currently do not offer this service.
