Many people overlook their ceilings for the most part. They may paint them from time to time, but they rarely pay attention to the texture. Artexing is a term that describes the process of texturing an interior surface (usually a ceiling) with a product known as Artex. If you’re looking for Artexing quotes, you’ve come to the right place.

Artexing is the process of applying the material to ceilings and walls on occasion to provide a unique texture. One of the main drawbacks of Artex comes with ceiling repairs; it is almost impossible to match the original pattern exactly after these repairs. However, experienced professionals who have worked with Artex for years understand tricks of the trade that will provide a seamless transition – even after a repair. There are several different application types, and a swirl is incredibly popular. Other options include textured circles, stippling, broken leather effects, knifed plaster, and even a finish resembling tree bark.► Click For Free Artexing Quotes ◄
The average Artexing prices vary greatly based upon the size of the room and the chosen finish. Some styles take much longer to create than others, adding to overall labour costs. Although some people attempt to Artex their own ceilings to avoid these labour costs, this is not a good idea. Although Artex is relatively inexpensive when purchased in 25kg bags of powder mix, Artexing requires some skill, and failing to understand the consistency and application of the product may produce unsightly results. A very small room may cost as little as £100, but Artex throughout an entire home may cost upward of £1000 depending on the chosen style.
If you are interested in Artex and you would like to get some Artexing quotes, then it is important to choose a company with a solid reputation known for outstanding work. After all, creating the textures is an art form, and it takes someone with artistic ability to do the job correctly. You will want to hire a trustworthy company who will do an above-average job at an affordable price. When asking for quotes, be sure to read reviews about the company and ask to see photographs of their previous work.
Although Artexing is not as popular as it was in the 1960s and 1970s, it is making a comeback. Certain textures can reflect light to make small rooms appear bigger and brighter than they actually are. What's more, when applied in high-humidity areas like kitchen and bathrooms, the texture can actually protect the plaster and extend its life. It is difficult to remove or plaster over Artex; often, a professional must sand down the texture before applying new plaster.
Artexing provides a textural aesthetic appeal that is impossible to achieve with paint and plaster alone. It adds dimension and reflects light, and it works well with light or dark paint colours. Get your Artexing quotes below and we will match you with up to four local providers.
Q. Can I paint over a ceiling that has been artexed?
A. Yes, you may paint directly over artexing; however, adding a sealer first is recommended. This will seal any pores that might be present and provide a more even surface for paint to adhere to. You should ideally wait at least one week before adding sealer, and allow it to dry overnight before applying paint.
