A team of plasterers from Pegasus Plastering recently completed plastering the walls and ceilings of a rear extension at a property in Barnet, which was designed as an open-plan kitchen-diner. The new block built extension involved existing adjoining rooms being opened out into the extension to create a large kitchen and dining area.
Firstly the contractor completed the structural building work on the rear extension to the house, the plumbing and electrical installations were fitted to the ‘first fix’ stage, (meaning that all of the pipework and cabling were installed), so they could then be neatly concealed in the walls by plaster and plaster board. It’s always advisable, where possible, to do it in that order, so as to minimise the building costs and ensure that the finished product looks neat and tidy.
Once on site in Barnet our team of plasterers first painted the breeze blocks with a sealant and then rendered over the block walls using hardwall base coat plaster to level the surface. The ceiling of the extension was then fitted with plasterboard to form a smooth surface and the surrounds for the velux windows in the roof. Our plasterers then finished the walls and ceilings with using British gypsum multi finish, creating a top coat render with a smooth surface which was suitable for painting.
As well as the extension, our plasterers also renovated and repaired the existing walls and ceilings, as some needed patch repairs where plaster had been damaged or removed. In order to get a flat and even surface for finish plaster, our plasterers then used bonding, a base coat render, and then all the walls and ceilings were sealed with pva adhesive and plastered with two coats of multi finish plaster.
To finish off the original part of the house, our plasterers then fitted a standard 127mm gyproc coving.
