"The new walls you've erected in our bungalow make it look and feel like a different place - we love it!.
We needed the extra room but were worried about getting someone in to do the job due to the stories you hear about builders being so bad or trying to take advantage. You've restored our faith and we're so grateful for a job well done!"

Generally, when wallpaper is stripped off internal walls, we all want to have nice clean painted or freshly papered walls, but it's not unusual to find the walls underneath the paper are cracked or holed etc. This can happen to the most cared for walls as well as any other, it's just what happens after time. If this is what you have then we can make your walls look brand new ready for painting or repapering.
Don't worry about your most prized flooring style (wood finish, carpet etc), we take great pride in making sure we cover every area of the room and floor whilst work is in progress.
We're usually asked for most artexing styles/patterns to go on ceilings, but still also asked for walls as well. If you already have an artexing pattern on your ceilings or walls, we can re-skim the surfaces first and then apply your new chosen style/pattern of artex. Until the mid-1980s, the Artex coating was made with white asbestos to strengthen it. Inhaling microscopic asbestos fibres can cause asbestosis and mesothelioma - defined by the World Health Organization as cancers - so anyone removing the coating or working with a surface covered with it should wear protective clothing and masks – and the area being worked on should be sealed off.
We can do any style of arch you wish to have. You can have arches which divide two rooms into seemingly one large room - You can have an arch which seperates two rooms with a smaller version of an arch, which is smaller than a room divider, but larger than a serving hatch - You may also wish to have your arch created on an external wall going into a garage from a main internal room, or any other creation you wish to discuss with us.
We will obviously finish off the chosen arch with a perfectly smooth skimming.
Metal Stud & Partition Walls:
Many requests we get are for partition walls to be placed strategically to divide one room into two etc. This can be done very easily and can create the feel of an additional room or two, in your house/building. This is ideal for larger bedroomed houses to create an extra bedroom or an en suite bathroom/WC.
This gives a gorgeous look to any room. Coving can marry walls and ceilings up in wonderful, different styles and is becoming more and more popular. You can have a straight forward popular style coving style, or for the more adventurous, we can discuss another point of view you may have in your mind's eye.
When any new internal wall is erected, dry lining plasterboards are the most popular way of covering the internal wall build before plastering of any fashion can take place. These are fastened to the internal wood build with nails and lost under the final coats of plastering. Plasterboards can be cut to fit any shape of wall/design.
The most commonly used thicknesses of plasterboard available are 12.5 mm (modern equivalent of half an inch), typically used for walls, and 9.5 mm (modern equivalent of three-eights of an inch), typically used for ceilings. 15 mm thick board is commonly available, and other thicknesses are also produced.
Plasterboard is commonly made with one of two different edge treatments: Tapered Edge, where the sides of the board are tapered at the front to allow for jointing materials to be finished flush with the main board face, and Straight Edge, where there is no different thickness at the side of the board.
We can quote you on any style of building repair work you require. There are too many types of repair style jobs to list, so please contact us with your requirements and we'll assess the job from there.
External rendering (cement mortar & sand). It's usually applied in two coats/stages. The first is a scratch coat this is applied to the brickwork to flatten out the joints etc, also known as a scratch coat.
The second coat is two thirds sand which is applied a day later, and is worked to a smooth finish.
