WHAT ARE OUR CUSTOMERS SAYING
“I was very impressed with how well organized your company is and how efficiently your crews went about their work. If I had more Sub-contractors, like Bradleigh, I dare say there would be no end to what could be accomplished.”
Plaster systems provide improved fire and abuse resistance over conventional drywall systems. In addition, they allow for a variety of aesthetic applications and better acoustic performance. Depending on the application, either conventional or veneer plaster systems can be used. Conventional plaster systems use a thicker plaster coat over a metal lath and provide increased fire and wear resistance, while one- or two-coat veneer systems are faster and less expensive to apply. Plaster systems typically consist of a substrate, a base-coat plaster and a finish plaster.
100% Acrylic-based coating available in textured or non- textured and is Integrally colored with high quality pigments. Our coatings are Dirt Pick-up Resistant, where as the surface of the coating hardens and does not soften again under heat. This ensures the non-tacky surface provides high resistance to accumulation of dirt, mold, and pollutants! Acrylic Interior and Exterior Coatings also provide excellent hiding power as well as flexibility and drying characteristics.
Interior Gypsum: Used to create durable, sound- and fire-resistant interior walls while delivering a plastic working material that easily conforms to a variety of wall and ceiling designs.
Venetian Plaster: The application in thin translucent layers creates an iridescent finish, giving the appearance of depth and movement, while providing a look that is earthy and soft. Venetian plaster is basically a putty made from fired limestone, combined with water. It’s then mixed together to make lime plaster. When that lime plaster is applied to walls and exposed to the carbon dioxide in the air, the mixture turns back into limestone.
Exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS) is a general class of non-load bearing building cladding systems that provides exterior walls with an insulated, water resistant, finished surface in an integrated composite material system.
E.I.F.S. Systems are comprised of 6 Layers:
Acoustical Plaster Finish provides quiet elegance with enhanced acoustical properties to control interior sound levels for both work or living areas. Ideal for new constructions or remodeling projects, the finish is a setting-type plaster product applied using standard plaster spray application techniques.
As a building material, stucco is a durable, attractive, and weather-resistant wall covering. It can be used as both an interior and exterior finish applied in one or two thin layers, directly over a solid masonry, brick or stone surfaces. The finish coat usually contains an integral color and is typically textured for appearance. The traditional application of stucco and lath occurs in three coats — the scratch coat, the brown coat and the finish coat. The two base coats of plaster are either hand-applied or machine sprayed. The finish coat can be troweled smooth, hand-textured, floated to a sand finish or sprayed.
Air barriers are systems of materials designed and constructed to control airflow between a conditioned space and an unconditioned space. The air barrier system is the primary air enclosure boundary that separates indoor (conditioned) air and outdoor (unconditioned) air. In multi-unit/townhouse/apartment construction the air barrier system also separates the conditioned air from any given unit and adjacent units. Air barrier systems also typically define the location of the pressure boundary of the building enclosure.
In multi-unit/townhouse/apartment construction the air barrier system is also the fire barrier and smoke barrier in inter-unit separations. The inter-unit separation must also meet the specific fire-resistance rating requirement for the given separation.
The air barrier system also separates garages from conditioned spaces. In this regard the air barrier system is also the “gas barrier” and provides the gas-tight separation between a garage and the remainder of the house or building.
