Plastering Walls & Ceilings

GPL Plasterers specialise in interior plastering and have years of experience working on renovation and refurbishment projects restoring walls and ceilings to a smooth plastered finish so that the decorating of the home can begin.

Specialist Wall & Ceiling Plasterers

Our team of skilled team of plasterers are based in North London and have years of experience in plastering interior walls and ceilings as part of residential and commercial property refurbishments in properties across North London and into surrounding areas in Hertfordshire and Essex.

Creating Smooth Plaster Finishes

Our skilled plasterers will create high quality plaster finishes using quality British Gypsum plaster. As part of covering the surfaces we will ensure that your walls and ceiling surfaces have both smooth surfaces and crisp clean lines. As plastering specialists our plasterers have the expertise to smooth or correct the contours of damaged or uneven walls and ceiling surfaces by masking any imperfections and creating an unblemished finish.

Once the plaster on your walls and ceilings is dry it will be ready to decorate. The quality of the materials we use and quality of our craftsmanship means that the surfaces should comfortably last, if undamaged, for decades.

Plastering and skimming walls

Plastering Renovations

Restoring wall surfaces

We have worked on many home renovations where the original wall and ceiling surfaces need plaster repairs, patching-up or a thin topcoat surface covering known as skimming, to bring the surface back to its former glory.

If the surface damage is extensive, we can use a combination of PVA adhesive and fibre tape to scrim over cracks and then apply a topcoat of plaster to create a smooth surface.

If the damage has been such that the plaster has been removed, we can render brick or block walls to create a level surface and the apply a topcoat of plaster to create a smooth plastered finish ready for decorating.

Plastering home extensions

New Builds & Extensions

Preparing new wall surfaces

We have completed many projects working on new builds, home extensions and loft conversions. These modern structures are usually built with breeze blocks and stud walls which are covered in plasterboard, before being plastered.

As part of our complete plastering service, we can work on both interior and exterior wall plastering and ceilings.

For the interior we can install studwork, stud walls and plasterboard. This can then be finished with skimming; a topcoat of plaster which is skimmed over the wall surface to create smooth finish.

For the exterior walls of the building, we can also provide exterior rendering or pebble dashing services.

Decorating Plastered Walls & Ceilings

Any decorator will tell you that using a skilled plasterer to repair damaged walls makes their job a whole lot easier. Ultimately it means that there is smooth topcoat surface of plaster and clean edges on the ceilings and walls to work with. When decorating either with paint or wallpaper, the plaster finish will show through, particularly with painted surfaces, as imperfections can often become more apparent.

As a comprehensive service, we have a team of skilled decorators who can paint and wallpaper your walls, ceilings, coving, architraves, skirting, doors and frames. Find out more here

Planning your plastering

As with all construction and refurbishment projects, the key to minimising costs and completing on time is the planning. Our ‘professional tip’ for clients is to have a clear plan of action considering the work of each of the trades and the installation of, or any changes to:

  • Plumbing

    All pipes for sinks, showers, baths and toilets as well as appliances such as washing machines  and dishwashers.

  • Heating Systems

    Pipes, radiators, heated towel rails, underfloor heating, boilers and tanks.

  • Electrics & Comms

    Cables, lighting, fittings, switches and thermostats, plugs and sockets, phone and broadband points, TV connections /aerial points and speakers

  • Air Conditioning

    Ventilation and extraction panels and pipework, electrical points and fitted thermostatic controls.

If all the fittings are in place before our plasterers arrive it means we can then conceal any casing or unsightly items behind the clean lines of the plaster or plasterboard surfaces. Attempting this afterwards can mean that you’ll need to call us back to make-good the damage done to install these items.
