ABOUT OUR SERVICE
Hickey Limited is a well established plastering company, registered in England, and is one of the key provider of plastering and dry lining services along with other services throughout Hertfordshire area.
As plastering and drylining contractors, we operate throughout the UK, and have experience in working in every type of commercial and residential property.
We are a well-established Plastering and Dry Lining contractor, based in Hertfordshire, covering all areas of the South East.
As you can see from our project’s portfolio, we are able to carry all types of plastering, from traditional to modern. We have an extensive knowledge of the plastering industry and are up to date with many modern practices, as well as the traditional aspects. We have worked with English Heritage on several traditional lime rendering projects, and we have sent teams of plasterers to the Ty Mawr training School in Wales to be taught traditional lime render application and upkeep. Please see the barn conversion photographs in our project’s portfolio. This building in Berkhamsted was grade 2 listed, and was fully lime rendered by our team, to the full satisfaction of English Heritage
We keep up with modern trends such as Monocouche, (through coloured), renders. This incredibly popular rendering system is growing fast. Applied correctly, this will not require painting for up to 20 years, and is backed by the manufacturers guarantee. There is a huge array of colours available as standard, with most being available in short notice. We use all of the major manufacturers, including Weber, Parex and K rend. One of our recent projects have involved removing the tile clad facades to a house, replacing this with a cement-based panel, and then applying a Monocouche render finish. This immediately brought the house into 2021, and brightened up the whole building.
We also are able to install the silicone-based versions of the same products. This is a thin coat of render used over external insulation systems, and is being used extensively to clad older homes. This will help to keep the home warmer for longer, and to bring down the heating bills.
Modern adhesives and plasters make it much easier to re-skim over existing internal walls and ceilings, so get in touch if the walls in your home are looking a bit rough. We can make them look brand new again.
We have plastered many housing developments for companies such as Jarvis and Lovells, and have been praised many times for the speed of application, the level of cleanliness maintained by the plasterers, and the high standard of finish left on completion. Decorators will have little of no complaints when they follow Hickey Limited’s plastering teams into completed units. Our plasterers are skilled in the use of stilts, so negating the need for scaffolding within the houses, allowing other trades to work in the same units. All operatives will regularly check the stilts are working correctly, and follow all of the safety guidance written into the risk assessment for every project.
Many of our commercial projects, such as Montrose Road in Chelmsford and Raans road in Amersham do not lend themselves to a plaster skim finish, due to the enormous size of the walls involved. Some of these jumbo partitions can be as high as 16m, and 40m long, so there would be too many day joints that would be difficult to conceal when painted. Here we can have a tape and jointed finish applied instead. Our jointing teams have all of the relevant permits for MEWPS, (scissor lifts and cherry pickers etc), and can cover a huge area at one time, ensuring a seamless finish to any size of wall. Our tape and jointers have recently completed all of the jointing works to a new Hotel in St Albans, to such a high standard that once painted, it was difficult to know whether the walls and ceilings had been plaster skim finished or tape and jointed.
