Welcome to Dons plastering Ltd.
We are a small family run business located near Streatham Vale, south west London (SW16).
Dons has been established since 1985, and has been serving the building industry for over 35 years. We work on all residential and domestic property as well as commercial and industrial premises.
Our craftsmen are experts in all types of plaster and render, including plaster board, wall coatings such as lime plastering, hard wall plastering and plaster bonding and skimming (finish coating). We can do all types of rendering and render repairs to both interior and exterior as well as laying flooring including membranes and a concrete screed.
We also specialise in damp proofing including cellar and basement conversions in older houses and period property. As well as damp proofing walls we can treat rising damp with a damp proof course. This is commonly used where there is access to an outside wall so as to facilitate the drilling of holes for ventilation.
If you have a property where there is no access to an outside wall as in the case of a cellar or basement we use a process called tanking. Tanking is a process of damp proofing walls by creating a complete water-impermeable barrier covering the entire wall.
We cover the interior wall with a waterproof membrane or damp proof membrane (DPM). This is clipped and taped and then plastered or rendered before applying a finish coat if required.
We also use three coat cement tanking. This involes applying two coats of waterproof sand and cement render onto your prepared brickwork. After we apply a further waterproof cement mix. If necessary we apply a fourth coat. Each stage has a different ratio of waterproof resin mixed in to the sand and cement. When dry, the area can then be finished with plaster.
We undertake all types of work (no job is too small) from plaster repairs, replacement ceilings, painting and decorating, woodwork restoration projects, external anti vandal coating, pebble dashing and K Rend, wall removals, to building full extensions and loft conversions.
What ever your require we can do it.
