Skimming and Re-skimming Walls & Ceilings

Skimming and Re-skimming Walls & Ceilings

This is the term used to skim over your walls and ceilings’ existing plaster or artex to create a smooth finish ready to apply new emulsion. The art of skimming and re-skimming is generally used when the base is still solid but the top coat of plaster is looking tired and starting to flake. Skimming and re-skimming prepares your walls ready to transform your space.

If you have an old wall or ceiling that requires re-skimming, you can count on Plasterers In Liverpool’s expertise to get a smooth wall primed and ready for decorating.

Reskimming is commonly a thin layer of fine plaster applied smoothly to the brick directly. This acts as a base for the skim plaster to be applied on either plasterboard, solid plaster or existing old plastered walls.

Once skim plaster is applied to a good solid base an experienced plasterer can trowel it up to produce a beautiful strong, smooth and flawless finish that can just be painted to look stunning. In the majority of cases a re-skim is all that is needed to bring the room back to life.
