Plaster Skimming in London and the Home Counties

Plaster skimming is a technique used on rough plasterwork to get it ready for decorating. It can also be applied to plasterboard. If the wall or ceiling is structurally sound, we can skim the surface to cover up minor imperfections, including tiny cracks and existing textures.

During application, we carefully smooth out the plaster skim coat to achieve a seamless finish. We have specialists available for skimming plaster across London and the Home Counties.
