Plaster Skimming

Skimming means to use a finishing plaster either on new plasterboard or over existing walls or ceilings to create a smooth finish for painting or wall papering.

  • What is plaster skimming?

    The term plastering is often used to mean the same thing, so you might say "my walls need plastering" when they need skimming but the term "plastering" is more general so could mean that more than just a skim is required e.g. boarding and skimming or patching up holes etc than skimming, but in general people just use the two terms to describe the same process (skimming). It's just that one term is more specific than the other.

  • skimming over plasterboard

    Plaster skimming to plasterboards is a popular method of providing a smooth, seamless surface ready to receive decorative treatment. Skim plastering gives many of the advantages of a traditional solid plaster finish combined with quick turnaround on site. Surface preparation simply involves joint reinforcement and, if tapered edge board is used, flushing-out the tapers.
