CJM Plastering has gained wide experience of applying external insulating renders to old and new build in Cumbria. External wall insulation - often referred to as EWI rendering systems - gives home owners a brand new set of options for improving appearance and thermal efficiency of buildings as well as increasing the creative design options available to home owners and architects. It is a cost effective way of lowering a building's carbon footprint while giving a range of attractive finishes to building exteriors!
Have you got a wall that just looks "scabby" after the wallpaper has been removed? Is your DIY stud wall in need of a professional finish? Is your plaster so old that it is no longer smooth enough for re-papering? Are your ceilings letting your decor down? CJM Plastering will skim plaster ceilings and damaged walls leaving a beautifully smooth finish for final decoration!
Plaster Repair and Flood Restoration
Though plastering is a durable finish for walls it doesn't last forever and as we have seen in recent years weather, floods and increasing traffic vibration can all take their toll on your beautiful walls. CJM Plastering can undertake repairs to all kinds of plastered walls. We have successfully stabilised and sometimes replaced old lath and plaster finishes in Victorian and older buildings. Recent floods in Cumbria and elsewhere in the north have seen us stripping old wet and fouled plaster to allow walls to dry quicker and then re-plastering with more flood resistant finishes. From plaster crack repair to patching plaster walls after physical damage - we've got you covered!
Usually applied to external walls - but applicable to many internal walls in commercial and industrial settings; renders are usually two coats of sand and cement applied to stone, brick and block walls. We can apply renders that achieve a smooth easily cleaned surface or a specifically textured surface to meet your exact requirements.
We can also supply and install the full range of K-Rend silicone-based external rendering finishes.
Plaster Boarding Solutions for Internal Walls
CJM can provide plaster board coverings for all your block walls, internal party walls, stud walls and ceilings. Our clients have been pleased with the speed and efficiency of our service. We will fix the boards in any space to timber frames or dot and dab to solid walls followed by a professional skim finish to provide a cost effective fast solution for internal walls.
Float and Set Plastering
This is traditional plastering at its best. Our floating service includes a good thick coat of undercoat plaster, which will be either sand and cement or browning / bonding plaster depending on the building's particular circumstances. This is applied straight onto the brick or blockwork. The bonding coat takes out the irregularities of the underlying blocks and produces walls that are straight and plumb. While the bonding coat is still damp and half set a skim coat is spread over it to give the next decorator the perfect surface to work on. The advantage of this method is that it offers much better sound and thermal insulation than plasterboard techniques.
