When you are looking for wall plastering services south London or re-plastering damp walls after rectification works e.g. DPC installation, gypsum plasters are unsuitable as they are not moisture tolerant and allow the migration of salts. Sovereign Renderlite Renovating Plaster is a moisture and salt resistant plaster that is also thermally efficient, so giving walls an improved U value. At the same time, Renderlite Renovating Plaster is breathable so damp walls can dry out as the Renderlite does not trap moisture. Renderlite Finishing Plaster can be used to provide a tough hardwearing skim finish and can be applied in as little as 24 hours after Sovereign Renovating Plaster. For general rendering or where high levels of sulphates exist or even for tanking applications, Sovereign Sulphate Ready Render is ideal. It can be used internally and externally on masonry backgrounds, it can be hand or spray applied and is ideal for rendering swimming pools and facades subject to intense weathering. A quick and easy way to fix plasterboard and insulation is Sovereign Fast Fix Board Adhesive.

If a background is not strong enough or is contaminated e.g. with paint and needs to be rendered then Sovereign Expanded Metal Lath can be used. Mechanically fixed to the background the metal lath can will support the render and keep it fixed against the wall
