Plasterers | Cornice Repairs | Traditional Craftsmen
We provide an excellent plastering service covering every aspect of the plastering trade, from basic skim coat finishing and ames taping, to highly decorative ornamental plaster design and repair. We carry out repairs to lath and plaster ceilings and cornices, where we can replicate exactly the mouldings, centre pieces or ornamental details of the original ceiling or wall. If the mouldings, cornicing or centre pieces have been lost, for example due to collapse, fire or flood, we can replicate the original from any surviving sections, take impressions from another ceiling, or, if all elements are lost, we can copy from photographs.
If you require artex removal or skimming over textured walls or ceilings, please call for an estimate. Please do not try to remove or disturb textured ceiling or wall coatings without first contacting an asbestos removal or sampling company to check if there is any asbestos present in the coating, as most artex or textured coatings manufactured prior to 1986 contained white asbestos. Although asbestos was removed from these products after 1986, the shelf life of the asbestos containing compounds is extremely long – for instance an old bag of artex mixed with hot water could still be used to texture ceilings or walls today, due to the fact the compound dried hard as opposed to setting hard like plaster or cement.
By contacting Stellar Building Solutions Ltd you can be confident that we will not cut out or disturb any surface that has a textured coating without first having the material analysed and certified to be negative of asbestos content.
