Making good This means racking out and filling all cracks and holes. We will also "feather out" areas of plasterwork to upgrade the surface. Making good will leave a surface sound. It will not make an imperfect surface perfect, or smooth out existing ridges and undulations.

Lining Where the plasterwork is cracking or imperfect, or there is a possibility of further cracking, lining paper is used. We use 1000 grade lining paper and will hang it butt-jointed so that seams are not noticeable. If needed, this will upgrade a surface more than making good.

Plastering By this we mean actual resurfacing of an area, wall or entire room by a tradesman plasterer. This is often the only way to obtain a perfect surface. It is either by use of two coats of plaster or by fixing plasterboard and skimming.

Rubbing down By use of abrasives. It has a number of purposes: remove nibs, flaking paint and imperfections. It provides a "key" for new paint and retards excessive build-up of paint on the woodwork. On woodwork we will rub down the entire surface before painting and "flatting down" with fine abrasive is done between coats. Wall and ceiling finishes We will normally use paint rollers and "cut in" with a brush. Paint rollers can leave a heavy texture. We will avoid this by not applying paint too thickly. Some texture is however unavoidable, particularly with emulsion paints.

Filling This is part of making good. Internally we normally use cellulose fillers on walls and ceilings. On external surfaces we use proprietary oil stopper, flexible fillers are used for gaps between wood and plaster, for example where skirting and architraves meet walls.

Rotten timber Rotten timber, particularly on exteriors, is not always noticeable at time of quotation. If found this will be pointed out to you. Rot most often occurs on timber sills and on the lower rails of a sash window.
