Plastering and External Rendering Services in Riseley

Plastering and External Rendering Services in Riseley

There’s been a settlement on the site of Riseley since the 11th century and in its time it has been a centre for making bricks, tiles and lace. Now it’s one of the many attractive villages, just to the north of Bedford, that the Logic Plastering team get to visit as part of their work.

With a history going back 1,000 years it’s no wonder Riseley boasts a variety of housing stock, ranging from thatched cottages to 18th century gabled houses, Victorian villas and attractive contemporary builds. It’s a real privilege to be able to apply our plastering and external rendering services in Riseley to houses that have survived for 100s of years.

Plastering and Coving Services in Biddenham

Biddenham is one of Bedfordshire’s best kept secrets. Just two miles from Bedford town centre, this tiny village nestles on the banks of the River Ouse. It’s one of the smallest of the Bedfordshire villages and has managed to protect its identity, despite the ongoing encroachment of new builds nearby.

The history of Biddenham goes back to Roman times, and it ‘feels’ like a proper village, with a village pond (originally created for the catching of carp) and a Green which forms the centre of village life. It’s a treat to for the Logic Plastering team to step out of 21st century Bedford and into something much older. And we relish the opportunity of working on cottages, some of which date back to the 1700s.

Plastering, Dry Lining and Coving in Woburn

When working in Bromham, the Logic Plastering team can never resist a quick cup of tea and a cake in the Bromham Mill cafe. It’s a tranquil spot in a beautiful village that goes back to medieval times. Unbelievably, it’s just 2 or 3 miles away from Bedford town centre though it feels like another world.

As with all the Bedfordshire villages there’s a rich mix of housing stock. Over the years we’ve had the opportunity to work on thatched cottages, new builds and everything in-between. Whether we’re called in to repair external rendering, put up dry lining partitions or plaster an interior, Bromham’s a great place to work and a lovely community of people.

Plastering, Dry Lining and Coving in Woburn

The Sunday Times has named Woburn as one of the ‘best places to live in Britain’ and the Logic Plastering team would have to concur! We love working in this beautiful Georgian village. It’s less than 30 minutes from Bedford, but feels like a different country. For tourists, it’s the Safari Park, Centre Parcs and Woburn Abbey that make it special. For locals, though, it’s probably the great restaurants, amazing country walks, and the weekly Woburn market that make it a such a great place to live in.

Woburn has an eventful history. It was burned to the ground 3 times, before being rebuilt in the style visitors now love. Many of the properties clustering around the historic High Street date back to the mid 1750s, which make them fascinating for plasterers like ourselves. Over the past decade we’ve worked on Woburn new builds, red brick houses, and original Georgian buildings.

The Logic Plastering team always look forward to providing plastering and rendering services in Sharnbrook. On the map it’s just a smallish Bedfordshire village, 9 miles west of Bedford. So what makes Sharnbrook special? We can name 3 reasons. First there’s the bakery on the High Street offering superb bacon baps. Second, there’s the weirdly named ‘Swan With Two Nicks’ pub – also on the High St. Third, there’s the Christmas decorations; they are something special to see!

The village has been around since Norman times so, as you’d expect, there’s a variety of houses to be tended to. We’ve worked on thatched cottages, new-builds and handsome red brick properties over the years. Whether it’s repairing exterior rendering, plastering an interior, or applying dry lining, Sharnbrook’s a great environment to work in, in a beautiful corner of the county.

Repairing Cracks in External Rendered Walls

At Logic Plastering we often get queries about repairing cracks in external rendered walls. This is a typical query from a customer who had moved to his current house 3 years ago:

“We were warned that the render was poor when we moved in. It looked OK, though, until recently when cracks have started appearing. I’m just wondering whether it’s possible to repair the cracks, or will I have to replace the whole lot? It looks like it’s a smooth, cream coloured render that’s been used – not sure what it’s called though”

What is Dry Lining

What is Dry Lining?

What is Dry Lining?

Want internal walls or ceilings plastered and paint-ready fast? Then dry lining is the solution the Logic Plastering team will reach for. So what is it? Dry lining, also known as ‘drywalling’, is a way of cladding internal surfaces without using plaster. It’s acquired its name basically because minimal water is used in its installation – so there’s little or no drying time to factor in.

Cracked Render

Cracked Render

Does Cracked Render Cause Damp

External plastering, or rendering, protects our homes and buildings in two ways. First, it insulates them against either extreme cold, or extreme heat. Second, it weatherproofs the brickwork, adding a protective layer to ensure that walls remain dry and durable. Cracked render creates vulnerabilities in this protective layer and heightens the risk of damp and crumbling brickwork.

Professional External Wall Plastering

Walk down any town centre street in Bedfordshire and you’ll see an attractive hotch-potch of architectural building styles, periods and ornamentation. It’s what gives character and identity to a particular place, making it unique. Ever wondered how these buildings survive over the centuries? Well, one of the major reasons is their external wall plastering.

The history of rendering can be traced back to some of the very earliest cities. The Romans introduced it to Britain and we’ve been using a variety of materials to protect our homes ever since. External wall plastering, or rendering, is important because it provides an extra skin over the brickwork. It ensures that your home stays dry, warm and protected against extreme weather, over decades – if not centuries.
