Essentially, skimming is a top-coat of plaster which is used to cover-up superficial blemishes and restore the surface of a wall or ceiling to a smooth and level finish. Typically this is used when old wallpaper has been removed causing surface damage, or where there are minor scuffs and abrasions. In the photos below you can see before and after pictures showing some examples of our skimming projects on a previously Artexed ceiling, adhesive covered walls and in making good damaged walls. We also fitted the coving in readiness for the decorators. As you can tell the finished painted surfaces look excellent.
