Our Work


We’re proud of the work we do at Higgs & Dewar, the Guildford Plasterers and we’re sure that before you contract with a plasterer to do some work for you it’s helpful to have a look at some of their work and see what the end product looks like (and also some pictures ‘before’ the transformation).

To make life simple we’ve separated these into a few different areas so you can find and look at what’s most relevant to you.

Art Deco House near Guildford featured on Grand Designs

One of the most exciting projects we have worked on was featured on the Channel 4’s Grand Designs series when they covered the building of an Art Deco designed house in Godalming. There are a couple of videos which are brief snippets from the program showing the rendering that needed to be completed to the front of the house. It was obvious that none of the other plasterers wanted to take on the job as it was the centre piece of the building and fraught with difficulty. Any mistakes would be there for all to see (if you want to see just how nervous the team were about this watch the whole Channel 4 Grand Designs video here).  Adey took the bull by the horn and was prepared to put his skills and reputation on the line to ensure the authentic finish the owners were looking for. If you want to know a little more about this project and see the work he did and the end product then just visit this page.

Plastering Work

Obviously we do a wide variety of plastering work both internal and external. If you’d like to look at some of the work we’ve done over recent years then take a look at the photo gallery on this page.

Imitation Oak Beams

One of the things we specialise in is producing imitation oak beams to give an authentic finish and add character to both new and existing buildings. These require high quality plastering skills but most importantly a creative touch and an artists finish to give the look and feel of real oak beams. Imitation beams are far stronger than real wood, are easier to fit and are much stronger so they can be used in places where real oak would present challenges in meeting building regulations. If you’d like to see what they look like, both before and after they’re finished then take a look at the gallery on this page.
