Plaster Beads are essential to the finishing of a Good Plastering Project.
So, where would you use a Plaster Bead when Plastering?
Plaster Beads would be used around the external edge of a Window, Boxed in Areas or any awkward areas with an edge.
The Plaster Bead will grip the Wall, allowing for a smooth finish.
Let's run through the traditional methods of installing plaster beads.
Once you have attached Plaster Boards to your Wall, you can add a plasterboard thin coat bead to the edges before plastering.
The Plaster Bead should be easy to cut, and standard beads can be attached by traditional methods using nails, screws or Plaster adhesives.
Measure the area where your Bead is being applied, and using tin snips, cut a line towards the angle of your thin coat beads on both sides and gently bend.
Using Nails, Screws or Plaster Adhesives fit your Bead in place.
Continue this process until you have all your Beads in place and ready for Plaster.
