Adept Plastering was established over 25 years ago by Steven Currie.  Steven is a highly skilled plasterer from Musselburgh, near Edinburgh, who has a friendly team of skilled plasterers covering Edinburgh, Lothians and Borders who have many years of training behind them. We have provided plastering services to many satisfied customers in Edinburgh, East Lothian, West Lothian, Scottish Borders and many other areas around Scotland and are renowned for our work being of the very highest quality. We use only the best materials available so that our workmanship lasts for an extensive period of time. 

Harling/dry-dash roughcasting is a process which involves a render being applied to the exterior walls of your property and whilst still wet a specially shaped trowel is used to throw pebbles or small stone chips onto the surface. We have extensive experience in this application and have many happy customers.


Wet dashing is even harder wearing than dry dash, its a traditional finish that is a popular alternative to dry dash, especially in the Scottish regions.  A flat base coat is applied followed by a through-coloured slurry coat which when evenly applied, provides an attractive, watertight, textured finish.  Wet dashing is a finish which is traditionally and commonly painted. 


K-Rend is a smooth render coat applied to your property.   More and more of our customers are now opting for the ultimate external finish, acrylic smooth render which is available in 20 different colours. No more painting, pointing and unsightly cracking, its energy efficient and water resistant, meaning it's low maintenance.


Dot and dab is a technique that was developed to replace traditional wet plastering and it is now frequently used in new buildings. It has gained in popularity due to its lower costs, faster installation, quicker drying time and ease of finishing. Walls finished in this way can be painted almost immediately. We are more frequently being asked to dot and dab using insulated boards, which increases your home's energy efficiency.


Skimming means to use a finishing plaster either on new plasterboard or over existing walls or ceilings to create a smooth finish for painting or wall papering.  As plasterers we skim everything from new build houses, extensions and attic conversions to smaller jobs such as skimming over uneven walls or over dated artex walls and ceilings. There's no job too big or small. 



Plaster Cornice, also known as Coving or Cornicing, is a moulding that crowns any room covering the wall/ceiling join. Coving helps to give a room a more elegant feel and also greatly improves both the property style and value.  We have extensive experience in the repair of ornate cornicing in older properties and the creation of new cornicing or coving.

My neighbour recently had some artex on a couple of ceilings in her house skimmed over. She was delighted with the work and gave me Adept's number.  Steven and his guys did a lovely job and left my house very clean and tidy. His price was competitive and I have since given his number to friends and family.

I needed a job done quickly and to a very high standard. Steven's number was passed to me by a builder in Edinburgh who has used Adept for over 10 years for all of his plastering work. I was very pleased with the service I received and the quality of the workmanship and will be using Adept again.

Steven and his team did a fantastic job of re-harling my house. They were friendly, courteous and finished the job in a few days. When people comment on how good my house looks now and ask who did it I don't hesitate in passing on Steven's details.
