Plastering, rhinolite and painting
Combination of plastering, rhinolite and painting giving your property good look
A finer balance is always required between plastering, rhinolite and painting to produce that amazing look of the building. A plaster closes brickwork whereas rhinolite closes cracks and smoothens the surface. On the other hand, paint gives the desired look to the house. We are specialists in blending these items to give your house a nice look.
What plastering entails
Plastering is an art which takes account of the mixing of plaster sand, cement and water.
The required level of thickness should be determined upfront.
The plastering team should then apply the same level of thickness to the entire building to avoid uneven surfaces or situations where one part of the building looks better than others.
We use the bond liquid to help blend the wall with the plaster.
What does rhinolite do?
Rhinolite does an amazing job in closing cracks and smoothening uneven surfaces after the plaster phase is completed.
Though some contractors prefer to go straight to painting after finishing plastering, we do not recommend this step as there might still be uneven surfaces which can easily be closed with rhinolite to give it fresh smoothness.
What can go wrong with painting?
Painting looks easy from the distance but can look very bad if not done properly. What initially started out as an easy job can turn out to be a nightmare.
Things can go horribly wrong if painting is done by someone who is not trained to do so. Because it looks easy to do, some contractors want to take a chance without receiving any form of training.
Questions to ask yourself before painting
Are you painting a new house or an old house that requires renovation?
If it is renovations, can you still use new paint on the old paint?
If the answer is no, you need to determine if you need only one or more than one coat of paint.
Another question to ask yourself is whether the old paint is still intact or it is peeling off and the walls have cracks. If so, then you need to close the cracks with a crack filler before you start painting. Rough surfaces can be smoothened by using either rhinolite or sun papers.
