Quality Plastering and Rendering in and around Essex


Andy has been plastering for over thirty years, having followed his father into the trade. In those years he has worked on many large sites, including being part of NHBC award-winning teams, and has taken on all aspects of the trade – tacking, plastering, floor screeding and rendering.


Dan decided to join the business after finishing his education at King Edward VI Grammar School, and since that time we have moved in a different direction – away from the large sites and towards bespoke high-end projects (either self-build or run by a builder/project manager).

About our work

As we both have the same high standards for all our work, we both enjoy the challenges that come with working closely with clients to make sure they’re happy with the end product. Through taking on these jobs we have become experienced with some of the more specialist aspects of the trade, such as:

  • Shadow gaps around walls and door openings
  • Coffered ceilings
  • Concealed LED lighting details
  • Curved ceilings

We are also comfortable and experienced covering large and high areas without compromising quality or leaving joints in our work. Several of our recent projects have also been on ‘eco’ type builds, so we are familiar with the additional airtightness requirements of Passivhaus builds.

We have recently joined the British Gypsum Certified Plasterers scheme, so you know our work has a seal of approval from the manufacturer of the materials we use. This means our work is fully guaranteed.

The jobs we take on

We don’t only work on large one-off houses, the last few years have seen us work on a wide range of projects – extensions, loft conversions, conservatories, small sites of houses, down to smaller jobs such as reskimming ceilings and repairing failed renders. Several years ago we worked on Chelmsford’s famous Miami Hotel, re-rendering part of the building which you can see in our gallery. Sadly the hotel, and part of Chelmsford’s history, has recently been demolished.

Our aim is to carry out all the work ourselves without using sub-contractors, so you know every stage will be completed to the same high standards.

Most of our work is in Essex, but for the right job we will be happy to travel further afield. We have previously taken on large jobs in Kent, Surrey and Oxfordshire, and we’re happy to stay away to get the job done.

One of the more unusual requests we’ve had was to give a deliberately rustic effect. Working on a 200 year old country cottage, the client didn’t want the clean and crisp lines that we’re used to providing, and instead wanted crooked walls and rounded corners. You can see examples of this work in our gallery.

Full plastering service

We offer the full package of plastering works, and on most jobs work from top to bottom to carry out the following:

  • Tacking ceilings
  • Dot and dab to walls
  • Traditional float and set (using sand cement or BG Hardwall)
  • Skim coat plastering
  • Floor screeding
  • External rendering – on top of Andy’s experience with traditional materials, we also work with Parex and Weber monocouche (one coat) through coloured renders, machine applying the material and leaving a quality finish that doesn’t need to be decorated.
  • Fitting insulation

We have full public liability insurance.
