I am planning a new kitchen/bathroom/fitted bedroom etc. When should I have the plastering carried out?

It is crucial that we schedule the plastering around your installation so that the existing fittings (if any) can be removed and the plasterwork carried out while the room is empty. This ensures the best possible finish and eliminates the possibility of damage to your new installation. Contact one of our team on 07976 727 824.

Do I have to empty the room prior to plastering or can you work round my furniture?
It is imperative that rooms are completely clear prior to work commencing. This ensures a better finish and eliminates the risk of damage to your property.

How long do I have to wait before I can paint my new plaster?

In general, you should wait at least seven days or when the plaster has changed colour from a dark brown to a light pink.

Do I have to remove the wallpaper before the walls are plastered?

Yes, all paper should be removed to ensure a proper adhesion.
