Meet Pearl Plastering, the local plasterers in Edinburgh with an excellent reputation across Scotland’s capital and one which extends into the surrounding Lothian and Fife areas. We support our interior plastering work with external rendering services to keep properties protected, and we also specialise in Artex removal, and the installation of stud partitioning systems – important services you won’t find with all Edinburgh plasterers.
This inspires the question we always ask our customers; why settle for the services of cheap plasterers when you can use professional tradesmen at a fair and competitive price with a broader range of services?
There are no formal qualifications required to become a plasterer, but this doesn’t stop us from obtaining them. Our local plasterers have minimum NVQ Level 2 qualifications, something you won’t find with cheap plasterers in the Edinburgh area who pick up experience “on the fly”. Formal qualifications make a statement of intent about our commitment to the job.
All reputable tradesmen will have some form of qualification and our personnel meet NVQ Level 2 standards for plastering, for external rendering.
Some Edinburgh plasterers learn the job to complement another trade but a general builder, for example, might not be as competent at plastering as he is at brickwork or using stud partitioning systems. While it’s common for a tradesman to learn multiple skills, it’s often a better choice to use our local plasterers for finishing work because this is what people see first on a completed project.
The team at Pearl Plastering has 25 years of combined trade and industry experience.
Cheap plasterers won’t have the same kind of feedback, or any customer testimonials to fall back on, as our own team of qualified tradesmen. When you use Edinburgh plasterers who don’t have a checkable reputation or work history, you run the risk of jeopardising the final stages of your home improvement or commercial project. Wall and ceiling plastering are jobs for a professional, and not for an improving tradesman.
This is also true of external rendering work, but critical when it comes to Artex removal because older applications may contain asbestos.
Understandably, this requires a specialist skill set.
SCOPE OF SERVICE
Very few local plasterers can match Pearl Plastering for scope of service. While plastering and external rendering are obviously the cornerstones of our company, we also construct stud partitioning systems from British Gypsum and suspended ceilings. The latter two services are particularly useful for businesses in the Edinburgh area, especially those looking to convert open plan office space into smaller rooms.
Cheap plasterers won’t have the scope, the knowledge or the experience needed to work with stud partitioning systems and won’t be able to bring as many skills to your project.
