In traditional high class work in buildings the walls of rooms are usually finished with a plaster cornice at the ceiling / wall junction and a timber skirting board at the floor to wall junction.
As a specialist plastering contractor White Chapel Art Plaster are often called in to match the plaster cornice in rooms where repairs are being carried out or alterations to the room necessitate the manufacture of matched fibrous casts which are brought to site and fixed in place.
At White Chapel Art Plaster we employ joiners to form and fix timber grounds required for large sections of fibrous plaster work or run in situ convex work (scotch brackets).
Where alterations to rooms require the manufacture, supply and fix of timber mouldings such as skirting boards, architraves or picture/dado rails our joiners can match, manufacture and fix these timber mouldings in place, as our plasterers can make and match ornamental plasterwork.
The individual members making up the profile of a timber moulding may look standard, but off the shelf items are rarely an accurate match for existing timber mouldings. Without an exact match the quality of joint where old mouldings meet new will be compromised and the work deemed to be unacceptable to the discerning eye.
For this reason when we are called in to match plaster mouldings we will often be asked to then match adjacent timber mouldings and fix in place to give a seamless match which is easy on the eye and when painted or polished is undetectable from the original finish.
Being able to match mouldings in timber as well as plaster can be a very useful service to building owners if plaster and timber are in an order which is unexpected ie: timber cornice or plaster or mortar run skirting board.
Our goal at white Chapel Art Plaster is to give service and quality which is why when we are called in to match mouldings the work is neat, clean and accurate and clients comments almost always favourable.
