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.

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.

External Wall Plastering

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.

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.

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.
