    Plasterboard and skim ceiling

    Plasterboard and skim ceiling 11th Oct 07 at 4:46 PM
    My kitchen ceiling was covered with polystyrene tiles (yuk) which I've pulled down, only to find under that some nasty artex. I started steaming it off, but realising it could take the rest of my life think it would be better just to get the ceiling over-boarded and skimmed. I can't just get the artex skimmed over as there's large blobs of the tile adhesive stuck to it, and the ceiling under the artex is not in a good state.

    The kitchen ceiling is quite small - 1.7m x 3.5m - so I wondered if the £247.50 for a new plasterboard ceiling and skim from sounds reasonable? It's just so hard to get tradesmen to bother turning up here in Leeds
