Good plastering practices always applied
PVA Bond or SBR Bonding is normally applied as a matter of course on all plastering jobs.
PVA Bond is a multi-purpose bonding agent, primer, sealer, cement and plaster admixture that adheres to most common building materials. Ideal for priming unsound surfaces prior to plastering or painting, for general dust sealing on flaking paintwork/walls etc.
SBR Bond is a latex based, water resistant bonding agent and admixture for use in areas subject to humidity, dampness and continuous water contact. It improves water resistance of mixtures by forming a reinforcing polymer that increases long term durability and flexibility.
Adhesive scrim joint tape is always used over joints and cracks and to join plasterboard edges. In certain cases, when necessary, stronger external render mesh may be used for added strength to a plaster repair.
Here's a couple of recent plastering projects.

This job was to remove an old concrete fireplace in a ground floor apartment in Alderley Edge and make good the plaster. After removing the fireplace I blocked the opening using timber and plasterboard, then I gave it a first coat of bonding plaster followed by a skim coat finish. I recommend that an air vent is fitted to keep an air flow up the chimney flue but in this instance the client chose not to have this.
Perennial Windows created this lovely orangery sun room with a lantern glass ceiling in Offerton, Stockport. My job was to insulate the ceiling and all steelwork with a solid K-Span insulation board, then plasterboard and skim. All walls were also plasterboarded with the dot 'n' dab method and then plaster skimmed. The plasterering to existing dining room walls and ceiling were also made good.
Overboarding and replastering of a bedroom and lounge ceiling in a property on Longhurst Lane, Mellor. Both ceilings were badly cracked and taking down the old ceilings was an option. However, due to an ornate Edwardian plaster corniche in situ, both the customer and I were very concerned that this could be damaged and possibly collapse. The solution was to overboard the ceiling with new plasterboard and use a stop-bead to create a neat edge up against the corniche without compromising its integrity. This made it a straight foreward job to finish with a smooth plaster skim without any damage to the historic corniche feature.
