Stains can occur for various reasons, these include but are not limited to, water damage, nicotine, condensation/mould, sun bleaching, animals and grime. Most of the time these could be wiped off, however, on some occasions these stains may need a stain blocking paint, on other occasions it may mean a leak or something else needs rectifying. Whatever the problem Portsmouth Plasterers will have the solution.

Painting Wallpaper

Most wall paper is okay to paint over, however, there are some wallpapers that normal paint may not adhere to, such as some vinyl wallpapers. It is a good idea to always test a section with the paint you intend to use and see if it comes off after it has dried.


May homes have mould, mould and mildew can occur for various reasons,. These include, lack of airflow, humidity, hot and cold differences, damp from blocked cavities and bacteria on surfaces. These types of mould can largely be mitigated by opening widows/creating airflow and cleaning. Paints and silicones that are resistant to mould can also be purchased. However, on the unlucky occasion it is more serious, you may need damp work or building work, such as clearing wall cavities.


This form of material is often found in older houses and is not usually applied any more. In some cases asbestos was used, making it potentially hazardous when removed. This is why it is much safer to cover/over board it. We do offer free asbestos testing (see link:other services) , in the case that it is safe, then it can be scraped back/removed and then skimmed.

Blown Plaster

This usually happens because the base the product has been spent, disturbed, applied incorrectly or water damaged. Is some cases you may not need to worry to much, however, with large areas of blown plaster you may not have the support you need for things like a radiator , shelves or cupboards. Ultimately, in the severe cases the old plaster and base material will need removing and new render/damp proofing and plaster being applied.


Cracks can appear for various reasons, one of the most common causes of hairline cracks is the finished plaster being applied to a poor background. A background with multiple materials is a common place to receive cracks on the finished plaster, in this case a fibre mesh is used to ensure the plaster is held together and does not crack. Other cracks can happen for more serious reasons, such as structural, in any case Portsmouth Plasterers can asses the situation and apply the correct solution.
