This project was a very interesting one to complete. As you can see from the images there was a lot of preparation and care taken. Plastering for a large curved concrete staircase such as this can always be a bit of a challenge. However with the experience Fullers Plastering have means the final finish was exceptional and gives a real “wow” factor to this hallway.
These photos show a large cast concrete staircase that the client wanted to keep curved. It was a very difficult 3 coat system as well as having a PVC bead which isn’t designed to twist!
The process started with a blue grit which forms a bonding coat between the concrete and plaster. This then needed 24 hours to cure. A bonding coat was then applied to make the surface as level as possible before the bead was fitted to achieve the required line on the angle to the upstand.
This was then all skimmed, along with the ceiling to leave a seamless finish. All this as well as the stairs and treads being tiled so not only keeping them spotlessly clean, but we had to keep the margin between the stairs and the wall.
