Plastering may be known as a trade on demand, lately the technology has evolved in the making of better and more economical dry lining materials and tools, it has increased the popularity of dry liner and the art of plastering has become more of a bespoke labour trade. That been said the plastering trade is a hard one and the trained plasterers are difficult to get your hands on especially a good one , so before you begin any job which will need a plaster its best to contact them and arrange the booking just before beginning.
Even if you decide of a plaster finish the walls in most recent houses built since 2000 will have stud walling as the principal construction all off walls apart from any supporting walls which will still be block. The stud walls are often finished with a trade standard 12mm plaster board twisted to the upright studs. The advantages of stud walls is the wet plaster finish will take less time to dry out than if you're plastering a sturdy wall that might take up to 4 times as long to completely dry out and which splitting is also more of a tendency to happen. The price can also be something to compare as with dry liner with no full render will be a lot cheaper as the joints are filled and covered with a filler such as cyproc which when dried littoral to a smooth finish give the same the smooth modern finish as plastering companies in bristol.
It's the same procedure with the ceiling, they are going to also be finished with plaster board but will likely be 15mm thick to give additional sound proof and insulation, and the stud work will have cross joints (noggins) so the planks can be installed end to end. The plank is usually tapered at the edged which makes the finishing of joint a lot simpler if you select a dry line finish.
External walls will be rendered in a different manner , the usual choice is 2 coats of sand and cement with a waterproof agent mixed in , the fist coat will function as base coat which when semi dry will be scored with a cement comb, a second finishing coat will be applied and smoothed out for an entire finish. You also have the choice in today's market for coloured leaves which will be just one coating but would not have to be painted as the weather proofing and colour are already in the mix.
Flooring will typically be screeded with a compound of sand and cement, this can either be manual mixed on site or for a less strenuous life this can be ordered to be delivered and decanted onto the flooring direct in the cement truck. This will be spaded and soothed outside for a amount smooth finish by hand. The top finished cab either be left as a usual screed or then covered with your choice of flooring or carpet, or they concrete can be polished to give a unique finish.
