The two main types of
finishing on interior surfaces are a plaster finish and a tape
and joint finish.
Plaster finish on interiors
can be either float and set or just a skim plaster finish. A
float and set finish requires a base coat plaster or sand and
cement, with a skim coat of finish plaster on top, to give a
smooth finish ready for decoration.
Float and set can be used to take out slight discrepancies along
a wall ending up with a smooth even finish. Finish plaster can
also be used direct on to any plasterboard installation applied
at 3mm-5mm thick to give a finish ready to take decoration.
example of our taping & jointing service
Tape and jointing is applied
by hand or machine, direct to plasterboard to cover all joints
and screw holes to give a seamless finish, starting with
scrimming the joints with a fibre tape. Joint filler is then
applied which beds the tape in to the joint, the tape acts to
stop the joints cracking. Two further coats of filler are
applied, which when dry can be sanded down to give a smooth even
finish across the area ready for decoration.
The latest application method
of tape and jointing is to apply using a machine, where the
joint cement is sprayed over the joints, this gives an even
higher standard of finish.
