Refurbishment & Renovating

If you are wanting to refurbish or redecorate your home,  it is important to have the correct foundations in place to ensure a high quality finish. Homes in the UK can suffer from dampness and the age of the building effects the appearance over time. James Brown Plastering Ltd are experienced in a range of refurbishment and renovating services. These include:



Skimming is a Gypsum based material applied to internal walls and ceilings at approx 2-3mm thickness. Normally applied over plasterboard or existing walls that have cracks and/or blemishes.


Plaster Boarding and Stud Wall Installation

There are a variety of plaster boards for internal use, depending on the objective of the project. If you are wanting to sound proof a room or if there are problems with dampness then a moister board can be used to help reduce the effects.  For H&S concerns, a fire retardant board can be used.

Other uses are for erecting stud work and fixing plasterboard in the form of partition walling for lofts/garage conversions, extensions and residential dwellings.


Mainly used as an undercoat on masonry or other low suction areas, bonding/browning is primarily used as a backing coat to skim on where depths exceed the level of skimming.
