Skimming Plastering in London

Skimming is applying a thin coat of mud to the wall to make it appear even and smooth. This gives the wall a plaster like appearance while also hiding imperfections, if any. Skimming is a much faster way of giving the wall a finished look as compared to plastering, which usually requires multiple layers of coats. Skimming is generally carried out on walls that have chipped or have developed cracks and is generally used as a base before painting the wall.

What is Skimming in Plastering ?

Getting skimming service done is normally left to the discretion of the clients whether they want skimming on the walls or not. For walls that look even and finished, you may choose to skip skimming. However, a lot of clients prefer to get skimming done no matter the condition of the wall, as it adds an extra layer to the wall thereby proofing it more against sound. Skimming also provides a perfect base for painting the wall.

Skimming requires a great amount of skills and we take pride in the fact that we, at D White Plastering, exhibit extreme professionalism while undertaking skimming service. We wouldn’t recommend you to try that yourselves, as achieving a flawless skimmed look on the wall requires years of experience.
