    I have a tyrolean rendered house and it's looking dated and has some signs of cracks and falling off near windows. Overall it's sound and not hollow behind. What are my options with it? Can I patch the fallen render around the windows and apply tyrolean and paint the whole house? What are my options with the small cracks. I'd rather not have it all removed and re-done if possible. Any advice on which render to use etc would be appreciated. Thanks

    We have a few Artex ceilings that have been confirmed to contain asbestos. A local builder said he would overboard and then plaster and didn't seem too concerned about the asbestos. Would you not have to make holes to find the joists, disturbing the asbestos if you were to overboard? They said they wouldn't want to plaster directly on top because the current cracks will come through. I just wanted to get a 2nd opinion?

    I have a semi-detached property and the render is coming off in places around the window. It looks sturdy elsewhere and it doesn't seem to extensive that it should all have to come off but can you patch these bits? How do you know If the render is in too bad of a condition, what do you use to patch? Any help would be appreciated.

    I had house renovated in July including New plastering. After two months I notice now hairline cracks appearing in several places. I asked the builder to come and look at it . He is asking to pay him for mending the cracks. Am I required to pay for this, as this is due to his initial plastering? Do you normally get hairline cracks after plastering? Pease could you give advice on this.

    Asked by Pete on 6th Sep 2020

    I have several Artex ceilings in my house and I'd like to freshen things up. I've read that plastering over Artex is one way to 'get rid of it'. I'd like to know if this is a long-term solution or will I need to replace the Artex ceilings eventually?
