    Coronavirus Update and Keeping our Customers Safe

    20/06/2020 - As we come out of lockdown from Covid-19 we at WPS Plastering Contractors Ltd are starting to get ourselves back up and running.  This is challenging for the type of work we do but we are limiting the staff on site and ensuring we are keeping everyone safe when working.


    We continue to take new enquiries from clients at this time though we will not be completing initial site visits and ask that our clients either send plans through via email or to take photos of all areas that require rendering/insulating and for a measurement of each height and width of these elevations.  Where possible if you can also take measurements of the windows and doors that would really ensure that we are providing you with the best price possible.  If you require any help or would just like to discuss your project in detail please give the office a call on 01636 358827 and we will be able to help as best we can.  That just leaves me to say stay safe and we will see you on the other side.  Andy and Claire

    Project - Silicone Render of Bungalow in Southwell Nottinghamshire

    Our clients were wanting to update the look of their newly acquired bungalow in Southwell Nottinghamshire, and we were approached to find the ideal solution for them.  The bungalow had been painted at some point in the past and they wanted to remove the red paint and have a more modern look.  They choose a grey silicone render to offset the white PVC windows and to be a contrast to their neighbours who are still showing the brick facades. The difference is really amazing and though this is the only property completed on that road it does blend into its landscape within the neighbourhood.

  • Rendering of Timber Framed Extension, Sto Ltd

    Project - Sto Silicone Render on Timber Framed Extension in Lincolnshire

    Wanting to render a timber framed extension for your project?  This bed and breakfast in the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside had just this completed on their new timber framed extension as part of the private quarters of the bed and breakfast.  In addition they also wanted an existing wall to be re-rendered which formed part of the original 1800 building.


    The original building had previously had sand and cement render and this has started to fail.  The owners had this removed and it showed that the original bricks beneath had been left in a poor state.  Therefore we needed a render system that could not only level the undulating brick work but also provide a breathable system.  The timber framed extension needed a breathable system that would give the same finish as the original building.


    For the timber frame we applied Sto Ventec cement board to vertical battens and then applied a lightweight silicone render over the top.  This provided a clean and contrasting finish to the rest of the building.


    The original building we applied a level coat to ensure that we had a flat finish to the wall.  Once applied and dried we applied the same lightweight silicone render to this wall to tie this into the new extension and to provide a clean and bright finish.


    In both cases we used Sto's Rend Flex render system finishing the system by applying a silicone top coat.
