Ceiling Repair & Replacement

There are two varieties of Ceilings that come in traditional lath-and-plaster in older houses, and plasterboard, which since the mid-1960s, has been used widely in new homes. Sheets of plasterboard are nailed to the ceiling joists, then scrim (a self-adhesive tape) is taped across all the joints before plaster is applied. Or is you prefer, the ceiling can be "dry-lined" and finished with jointing tape and jointing compound, so it can be decorated without being plastered. Lath-and-plaster: laths are thin strips of timber that are nailed to the joists to form a board, on to which plaster is liberally applied. Lath-and-plaster ceilings often crack with age owing to their lack of flexibility. If you have an area where the plaster has come away from the ceiling, you could effect a (very messy) plaster-repair job by carefully pulling away the damaged plaster (plaster is unexpectedly heavy), then using two or more layers of undercoat plaster followed by a finishing (skim) layer. Unless it's a very small hole, we'd recommend you bring in a professional plasterer to achieve a smooth finish. Your other option is to use a plasterboard patch to repair the hole.

Good Plastering and Bad Plastering
  • New

    What is Platering?

    Plaster is a building material used for coating walls and ceilings. Plaster starts as a dry powder similar to mortar or cement and like those materials it is mixed with water to form a paste which liberates heat and then hardens. Unlike mortar and cement, plaster remains quite soft after setting, and can be easily manipulated with metal tools or even sandpaper. These characteristics make plaster suitable for a finishing, rather than a load-bearing material.
