At Homewood Plastering, we specialise in skimming, a technique used to create a smooth, even surface on walls and ceilings. Skimming involves applying a thin layer of plaster over an existing surface such as plasterboard, plaster or internal rendering, to give it a fresh, modern look. Whether you are refurbishing an old property or simply looking to give your walls and ceilings a new finish, skimming is an excellent option.

Our team of skilled plasterers has years of experience in skimming, and we take pride in delivering top-quality work every time. When you choose Homewood Plastering for your skimming needs, you can expect:

  • Thorough surface preparation: Before we begin skimming, we take the time to clean and prepare the surface properly. This includes removing any loose or flaking plaster, as well as filling any holes or cracks.

  • Expertly mixed plaster: We use only the best skim plaster to create a smooth, creamy consistency that is easy to work with.

  • Precision application: Using a trowel, we carefully apply the plaster to the surface, ensuring an even, lump-free finish.

  • Smooth, flawless results: After the plaster has dried, we sand it down to create a smooth, ultra-smooth finish that is ready for painting or decorating.

At Homewood Plastering, we are committed to delivering the best possible results for our customers. If you are in need of skimming services, we invite you to get in touch with us to discuss your project. We would be happy to provide a quote and answer any questions you may have.
