Skimming is the final hard smooth finish to a plastered surface. The wall is usually covered with plasterboard either screwed to surface or glued with dabbling mix. The board joints are then tapped to stop cracking and then the final covering, usually multi Finnish as it is called is applied. Before it hardens it is repeatedly polished with a wet trowel.
Plastering is when you take the plaster back to brick and replastering. Skimming is when you go over the old plaster. I hope this help
Skimming is the term used for finishing plaster the last coat
It's all plastering related.the skimming is plaster work to plaster board or walls that already have been plastered.
Plastering is the all round final wall covering process, Skimming is the last final coat of plaster that is visible on wall surface, the general plaster work is up to 1 inch thick, and skimming is roughly 2 mmm or so on the finished wall.
A thin coat of finish plaster to provide a clean smooth finished surface.
The final coat or top coat of plaster, this is probably the most important as it is the final coat that will be seen, this coat of plaster is often referred to as a skim
Skimming is using multi-finish plaster over an existing wall to give you a flat surface to paint on.
