We are having to remove it from each room as we decorate and then have the ceilings replastered, because the paper was put up originally to cover dodgy lathe-and-plaster plasterwork. Thanks all, interesting reading. If the same ceiling then “artex?

Obviously if it’s the former I need to take a lot more care because of the Asbestos risk. These two books are the perfect starting place to help you get to grips with one of the most vitally important aspects of our society – our homes and living environment.
Where can you find asbestos? Textured coatings
Wed Aug 08, 8: If it’s the former then you could plaster board over with plenty of fixings into the joists; if it’s the latter then you may get away with adding more fixings if you can find the line of the original fixings, otherwise it just be worthwhile putting new plaster asbests up anyway. Do you already have an account?
Am I better off steaming off the textured finish and then wiodchip mad with the bolster? Ahhh, I did not explain well. If the same ceiling then “artex?
It’s a ‘s semi so hope the woodchip isn’t hiding a multitude of sins. Will a FFP3 mask really be a safety measure as they look so lightweight?
Artex – how to get a “bark” or ragged straight lines effect? You need to hire a steamer from somewhere like HSS. I have an attic space above the bathroom so can access to repair from above.
I did something similar to the idea of the lath repair kit you linked to by using metal plaster washers from below and expanding foam adhesive applied from the loft, I wouldn’t do it over large areas due to the amount of time it takes to clean up the lath.
It is covered in woodchip paper and I was all set to start stripping it when a builder told me it’s easier to plaster over it. Its artex which is usually plastered over Wood chip can be hard work The first has a sheet border showing – paper would hide that. Has anyone encountered this problem?

Woodchip wall paper! Strip or just plaster over it?
Apologies for all the daft question – I’m not questioning anyone’s knowledge, just trying to do this all properly and safely.
Presumably because woodchip resembles artex in some ways and so confusion arises. I will take a better picture of the bathroom. You must log in or sign up to reply here. You can set out the lath spacing to suit plasterboard as the original joists are rarely where you want them. Your name or email address: What we thought would be a relatively simple task stripping the landing and stairs, and repainting has got a bit more tricky when I discovered that the plaster was a thin skim on some sort of textured coating.
It’s a textured paint. It gives the effect of a textured wall finish and was the ideal choice for hiding imperfect or cracked walls. Sun Aug 05, 7: If the work is likely to cause significant break up and deterioration of the material such as large scale removal using steaming or gelling methods, then notification would be required.
