We are now in the crazy period where the countdown to Christmas is well and truly underway.
People want their homes looking nice, ready for the influx of family and friends. They want them plastered and decorated ready before the Christmas holidays.
However what tends to happen is people don't think they need to book plasterers in advance, like they would for example, an electrician or plumber.
We can book work in up to 12 months in advance, especially if a client is having lots of building work carried out, we need to be booked in to ensure we are available after first and second fix to ensure other trades can come in after us and to ensure the whole project runs on time.
It's exactly the same principal on a smaller job, if you are having electrical, plumbing or joinery work that you have booked in, you also need to book in the plasterer at the same time to ensure they are free.
If you are looking to have plastering/rendering work carried out over extremely popular dates, for example school holidays, half terms, Christmas, Easter etc you definitely need to contact us sooner rather than later.
If you are considering rendering work, the weather has a massive impact on when this can be carried out, you will need to be more flexible with dates as we contend with the British weather.
The sooner you book the dates in, the sooner you can sit back and relax knowing that we will turn up on the agreed date to start the work, or as near as we can if the work is external render as this is reliant on the weather.
You also need to remember to plan ahead enough to ensure the plaster can dry out before decorating.
So enjoy your Christmas shopping and planning but remember if you are looking to have renovation works to your property get in touch sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.
