Traditional Plastering

We have worked on churches, medieval buildings through to prestigious Victorian homes, from pargetting, external lime renders, wattle & daub, lathe work, in-situ running moulds to internal lime plaster work and ornate plaster features. Our knowledge of historic plaster work is second to none and we are forever improving our expertise ensuring our skills and understanding of the art of plastering from a bygone age is as relevant today as it was then.

We work in a clean and sympathetic manner ensuring that we meet the needs of not only the client but also those of the building. We are often called upon to give specialist advice to architects, home owners and heritage organisations. Our aim is for a perfect finish and a happy client.

Specialist Plastering

Venetian Polished Plaster... We specialise in the application of polished plaster and natural stone finishes. Most of our polished plasters are lime based making them breathable and compatible with all buildings.

We can achieve a range of finishes from highly decorative marble, traditional stone or metallic like finishes suitable for all interiors (some finishes can even be used on the exterior of buildings). Often used as an alternative to tiles in bathrooms and kitchens - it is hard wearing and completely repairable, making it suitable for high traffic areas such as hallways, stairs etc.

When polished fully the finish is washable, waterproof and distinctive. The name derives from Venice where the finest examples of work can still be seen centuries on without a sign of decay, a truly timeless finish.

Building & Construction

MD Plastering & Construction has extensive experience of building extensions. An extension can add value and character to any home and may provide a cost effective way of increasing usable space within an existing dwelling.

We can offer advice and help at all stages of the project. No matter how complex or simple the extension or the building materials involved you can be assured we will provide the quality and attention to detail that you expect.

No existing plans? We can provide help and advice at all stages of the build process. We have established strong working relationships with a number of architects, structural engineers and party wall surveyors.

Already have plans? If you have existing plans we would be pleased to visit your property and provide a quote based on the site visit, drawings and specification requirements.

Structural Repairs

Many of our projects involve carrying out structural repairs from replacing oak timbers and beams on timber framed buildings to an extensive range of repair technologies in restoring the integrity and strength of your building.

Reinforcements, tie-ins, resin bonding systems to name but a few on all solid and stone buildings. We are on hand to give advice and assistance from the minor to the major.
