Plastering and Rendering Services in Sharnbrook

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.

How Professional Render Repair Protects Your Home

We depend on the walls of our homes to provide a protective buffer between ‘inside’ and ‘outside’. This works metaphorically, in that your home becomes the place you can retreat to in bad times, but they also have a practical job to do. Walls keep the weather, draughts and noise out of our homes. Rendering helps with the process, by adding an external layer to protect your home’s brickwork.

Cracks in Ceiling Plaster

“I’ve just noticed a crack in the ceiling and I wondered if it’s serious…”

This is a call we get regularly at Logic Plastering. It could be that a crack has just appeared in old plaster, and the caller is worried that it signals structural problems.

We’re always pleased to help, and what any plasterer will tell you is that there are numerous different kinds of cracks, all requiring a different solution.

In this blog, we look at 4 different types of cracks in ceiling plaster, and outline the solution required:

Which is Best? Dry Lining vs Plaster

When you’re decorating a room it can feel like there’s a million decisions to be made. Carpet or tiles? Wallpaper or paint? Curtains or blinds? Dry lining or plaster? The dry lining vs plaster debate is one we have regularly with our customers. We always take the time to lay out the pros and cons on each side, so they can make an informed decision.

In this blog, we’re going to go through the options if you’re looking to reline your interior wall. Hopefully, it’ll give you the information you need. If you have any questions though, you can always get in touch with the Logic Plastering team.

Plaster Ceiling Roses

Plaster Ceiling Roses

Plaster Ceiling Roses for an Eye-Catching Feature

Plaster ceiling roses are a period feature that goes way back to the days when a room would be lit by candles or gas light. One of the functions of the ceiling rose (apart from being decorative) was to catch the grime and soot. The idea was that instead of having to redecorate the entire ceiling, only the rose would need to be painted back to its original state.

Once electricity arrived the plaster rose became useful for a different reason. Now the decorative feature was used to hide the hole in the ceiling and electrical wiring. These moulded ‘roses’ are traditionally round, and highly decorative. Originally they were quite heavy objects, being made out of plaster, but contemporary rose moulds are made of much lighter materials.

Plastering Services Apsley Guise

The small village of Apsley Guise is one of the most ancient in Bedfordshire. Its name dates back to the 10th century and, whilst none of the village’s current buildings were constructed before the Tudor period, it has more than its fair share of historic architecture. Quite apart from the 18th century Manor House, the Rectory, and the Guise House, there are no less than 26 Georgian listed properties across the village.

For the Logic Plastering team, it’s a delight to find ourselves working in this extraordinary village. Whilst most of the properties we provide plastering services for were built in the 20th, and 21st century, we always consider ourselves in distinguished historic company.

External Plastering Finishes

External Plastering Finishes

Logic Offers a Range of External Plastering Finishes

External plastering, otherwise known as rendering, is a great solution for homeowners wanting to change the appearance of their house. The plaster doesn’t just deliver on the aesthetics, though. It can also help to insulate your home – which drives down utility bills – and stop damp or water from finding its way into your brickwork.

The big decision for Logic Plastering clients to make is which external plastering finish to choose. What was once a fairly simple choice between two or three options has now grown to a dazzling array of finishes. We thought our Bedfordshire clients might appreciate a walk-through of the external plastering finishes to choose from.
