1.   Can I do the plastering myself ?

It is not recommended. When you see a professional at work it appears easy however you need years of practice. We have been in the trade for over thirty years and with our experience we just make it look easy and produce a good flat professional finish.

4.   I have mould on my walls, do I need to replaster them ?

Usually not if it is just a mould. However if you have damp walls, then it is best to find out the cause, sort it out and then re-plaster the walls.
