This was our first time visiting Weybridge.... and we doubt it will be the last. We have to admit that this was one of the nicest places we have visited for work (aside from the West Country of course!!!) We came here to plaster a whole kitchen, plaster parts of the clients bedroom where a dado rail had been removed and also we plastered over the serving hatch which was originally in the kitchen opening out into the open plan livingroom/dining area.
Underneath the obligatory scenic images (this was the view from our clients livingroom by the way - wow!) we have images of the kitchen that we worked on. First you'll see the walls with plasterboards on, followed by the pictures showing the room freshly plastered so you can see the before and after.
The ceiling was a tricky one initially, as in kitchens there tends to be a build up of grease, which even when uni-bonded, will make plastering slightly more difficult. We had to give it a good three coats of uni-bond, compared to the usual one/two coats, simply because the steam and the grease had got into the boards. This could cause plaster to dry too quickly and graze (have small web like cracks all over) a result from too dry plaster. We prevented this by applying additional coats of uni-bond. It really came up amazing.
Plastering images on their own never quite seem as exciting as the finished article. But after seeing some of the bespoke kitchen ideas from our client, we can guarantee that this kitchen will look incredible. Look out for these on the gallery page in the coming months.
