Skimming Over Artex? Hire a Professional

Artex was a form of coating with a distinct structure that can be easily found in traditional and old homes, as it was a design style of choice back in the day. Many modern homeowners prefer to avoid having an artex in their homes and wish to get it removed or updated. Skimming over the artex is found to be a popular choice for this, and many homeowners prefer the same to deal with the artex effectively. It can give your house an upgrade, but you must always hire a professional to do so and avoid any risks. Here’s how professionals can help.

Experience and Skill

Professional plastering services come with adequate knowledge to deal with such specific situations. They have been handling plastering work for years and, therefore, must have come across many challenging problems like skim over artex and other intricate work. With their skilled hands and years of training, they are most suited to give your ceiling a smooth finish without making it look imperfect or uneven.

Surface Work

To be able to skim perfectly over an artex, one needs to engage multiple layers of work and levels of preparation. The structure must be thoroughly prepared to make it suitable for applying the skim coat. Efficient professional plasterers are aware of the proper techniques to get the work done meticulously. You may gain access to DIY tools to get it done on your own, but without practical knowledge, you will likely do a shoddy job at it. Professionals will analyse the texture thoroughly and do what is needed to remove loose material and create a sturdy position.

Efficient Tools and Supplies

Professionals have the correct tools and equipment to do the job accurately. They have access to high-quality plastering materials to provide you with top-notch work standards. By using good quality material, they make the surface highly durable and give longevity to the structure. They seamlessly blend the artex into your ceiling and give you a flawless finish. They understand the materials already used in the house, and therefore, they use complementing materials to retain the charm of your home.

Saves Time and Money

If you’re tempted to do a DIY project to save your money, you will most likely do an uneven task as you don’t understand the structures and mission well, and then you will eventually hire a professional and spend more money. Therefore, it is always better to hire a professional from point blank and get an efficient result. In your busy schedule, finding the time to do it yourself could also not be feasible. Keeping all of this in mind, the best recourse is to hire a professional plasterer in Canterbury.

Safety, Mess-Free

A professional plasterer knows how to clean as he works and knows how to protect the furniture or other structures of your house while working. Therefore, they conduct a clean job without creating much mess. They also retain the aesthetics and the value of your home.


Give your house the look you want with a professional plasterer’s experience, skill and meticulous attention to detail. Transform your home now with ease and convenience.
