Internal Plastering

We offer a wide range of plastering services, tailored to meet your individual requirements and site specifications.

All techniques are finished to the highest standard using only the best quality materials. Our highly skilled team can also offer bespoke finishes to your internal plastering, sympathetic to age and style of your property; we will be happy to discuss your requirements prior to quotation.

Float & Set Plastering

Float & Set is a highly skilled and more traditional technique. A backing coat is applied to begin with, which will provide the surface to be over-skimmed. This technique is more commonly used in high specification or period properties, as an alternative to dry-lining. Our team of highly skilled plasterers work to deliver tailored solutions to meet your budgetary and design requirements offering:

  • Hard-wall & Skim
  • Tough-coat & Skim
  • Traditional Sand & Cement & Skim

We will be able to advise the best method to suit your needs at the point of general enquiry.

Dry-Lining ("Dot & Dab")

Dry-lining is a modern technique where internal surfaces are prepared with adhesive and plasterboard is applied to line the walls, prior to skim finish. This technique is more commonly used in new developments. Our dry-lining systems meet current NHBC pressure testing standards and materials can be varied to meet individual requirements. For example, systems can vary from thermal insulation, to sound proofing, fire proofing and moisture resistant boards for designated wet areas. Our expert team can guide you through your requirements, which will depend on the scale of your project.


Our highly experienced plasterers apply a skim finish consisting of two coats to all areas. We are also able to offer patching and repair works, as well as over-skimming of artex ceilings and general re-skimming to transform your walls for redecoration or refurbishment.

Traditional Floor Screeding is an additional service we provide, as a preparation for tiling & other finishes. We also offer coving to compliment your décor, please ask for more details.
