We understand commercial plastering problems and our fully trained team provide solutions that offer excellent quality while keeping businesses up and running.
What Is Plastering?
Plastering, or more specifically plasterwork, is the process of applying plastering materials over walls and ceilings (interior or exterior) to create a smooth, clean, and attractive finish. Plastering can be applied during construction, remodelling, renovation, or to fix wall or ceiling issues. Walls that have been plastered are ready to decorate and can be covered easily with paint or wallpaper.
What Is Commercial Plastering?
Commercial plastering is a service offered to business customers. Business premises tend to be larger than residential homes and generally require more extensive and innovative solutions. Commercial plastering jobs are often larger than residential ones and require a more experienced service like the one we provide here at Lynch Brother Homes.
Commercial Plastering Solutions Offered By J & H Lynch
Commercial plastering presents its own problems when compared to residential properties. A business may need to keep using premises whilst plastering is taking place, and work may need to be completed within a very specific timescale. That’s why all our commercial plastering solutions are tailored to meet your needs and address your issues while keeping disruption to your business to a minimum.
Here are some of the commercial plastering solutions we offer:
Full Premises Plastering Solutions
We can provide a complete plastering solution for entire business premises. Have you moved into a new property with extensive plastering issues? No problem, our team can provide a complete solution for you. Is the plastering in your head office looking tired or damaged? Again, our professional plasterers are on hand to create clean and smooth plastering solutions that last.
We offer complete plastering solutions for:
- New buildings
- Retail outlets
- Schools and Colleges
- Student Accommodation
- Leisure Facilities
Partial Plastering Solutions
We also provide partial plastering solution for specific parts of your business premises. It may be that you’ve set up a new wing in your office that needs skimming, or that a specific room in your building has suffered water damage. Either way, our team is on hand to provide a professional plastering service to meet your needs.
Removal of Defective Plastering
If your current plastering solution is looking tired, damaged, or has developed a defect, we can strip it back to the underlying structure so new plaster can be applied. We also offer wall preparation services to ensure that plasterwork bonds and looks great for many years to come.
Filling Holes in Plasterwork
Holes in plasterwork are one of the most common problems we come across. Our team will not only prepare the hole to ensure that plaster bonds but will fill it professionally to create a smooth, clean finish that blends in with the surroundings.
Fixing of Current Plasterwork Issues
Plasterwork, over time, can develop an array of issues that may need a professional solution to fix. Here are a few that our team can help you with:
- Fixing Bond Failures Between Plasterwork and The Background Wall – Bond failures happen when the plasterwork peels, flakes, or comes away from the underlying wall structure often as the result of deflection or movement. It can also be caused by weak bonding due to poor keying of the underlying wall, inadequate suction control when the original plaster was administered, the use of the wrong grade plaster, or the presence of residual moisture in the underlying wall structure. Bonding problems will often require the removal of the defective plaster before new plaster is correctly administered by one of our experts.
- Solutions for Cracking in Plasterwork – Again, cracking in plasterwork is usually caused by movement in the background or surrounding structure or when there is shrinkage in any sand or cement undercoat. The plasterwork will need to be stripped away from cracked areas before a new solution is correctly applied by one of our experts.
- Solutions for Damp Issues Within Plasterwork – Moisture can penetrate plasterwork leaving it discoloured or damaged. The first thing our experts will do is locate the cause of the damp and advise how this can be remedied before removing damaged plasterwork and replacing it with a clean, smooth solution that lasts.
Types of Plaster Our Professionals Can Work With
Gypsum plaster is one of the most common types of plaster and is made from calcium sulphate dihydrate. Many commercial properties use gypsum plaster as it is vapour free, fireproof, and has excellent moisture resistance and thermal properties.
Lime plaster is an older solution but is becoming more popular due to its eco-friendly properties. Perfect for older buildings but will require more maintenance over time than gypsum.
Portland Cement Plaster (Stucco)
Stucco is another popular plaster used in many commercial premises due to its durability and longevity (can last anywhere between 40-90 years).
Clay Plaster is a more expensive option but is incredibly eco-friendly and gives a stunning, natural look.
