Why is plastering so expensive?
Plastered walls transform the feel and look of your home, providing it with an elegant finish even without adding a coat of paint. While they have a beautiful finish and last long, plastered walls do cost a pretty penny. Plastering requires a lot of labour, with the average wall needing a minimum of three coats. You should do proper preparation before the start of the actual plastering for the best finish. You have to prepare, level, clean and prime the walls to allow for the smooth application of the plaster. Additionally, plastering is quite a business. Cleaning and waste disposal are additional costs you need to keep in mind.
Can you plaster yourself?
Plastering isn’t as easy as it looks. While you can plaster your walls on your own, plastering is a trade skill and if you have never done it before, we recommend you take a short plastering course to learn the basics. The next thing is preparation. Get all the tools you need and materials ready, once plastering starts you can’t stop until you finish. Lastly, prepare the walls, strip wallpaper, clean the walls, fill in or skim the cracks, and off you go. Keep in mind plastering is a skill that gets easier with practice, so try as much as possible. Failing this, we highly recommend calling Chelmsford Plastering and Rendering to get the job done right the first time!
Is it hard to become a plasterer?
Like any other skill, to become a plasterer requires dedication and focus. It is neither hard nor easy to become a plasterer. There are three ways you can become a plasterer that spring to mind. One is by going to a college institution that will teach you the skills required. Another is watching some YouTube videos and doing small DIY projects and keep building your skills gradually. The other option would be by gaining experience working on-site with an experienced plasterer. The job requires one to be physically fit since it involves a lot of demanding tasks. Plastering is challenging, but the results are rewarding in the long run.
