    Can a newly plastered ceiling be fitted with a heavy ceiling plaster rose?


    Recently I have purchased a new plaster ceiling rose (approx. 90cm in diameter) and I will be having a room re-plastered and decorated in the coming weeks. The decorator I have hired has not had much experience with installing ceiling roses and certainly not one as large/heavy as this one. If anyone has any experience with this, could they please recommend the best options to install it safely and successfully.
    Many Thanks, P

    "Hi, First off, this would be a two-person job. I don’t think it would be recommended to tackle this as an individual – certainly not if you want the best results. They will need a tower platform to be able to apply the ceiling rose. If there is any joists above the area of the ceiling it will be added to, it may be possible to add a few screws to attach the ceiling rose to the joist.
    In any case, they will need an adhesive or glue to attach it by pressing it slowly to the ceiling. Afterwards, screws can be used to keep the ceiling rose attached. Any holes can be covered later, after the adhesive has dried completely. Others may have differing ideas about this, but most will still involve the use of an adhesive and screws to attach the rose to the ceiling at some stage. Hope this helps you out."
