    I have 2 hairline cracks running across my living room ceiling and have joined at one bit creating an L shape. I’ve filled the cracks but will my ceiling cave it ?

    Asked by Stacie on 21st Jan 2021

    I’m having my living room plastered, I’ve noticed some massive cracks on the newly plastered ceiling, the person doing it has advised he will be putting some tape on the cracks and replastering the cracks. I’m very worried as this crack is very big and from research the tape should have been put on before the plastering took place. Should I be worried?

    I'm just wondering if you can plaster and render over wood. I have an exposed wooden lintel above a window that needs rendering on and wood around an open plan doorway that's been removed that would ideally be plastered on. What would i need to plaster. render on the 2 areas? Is there something i can put over so the plaster/render with attach to? Thanks,

    When it comes to plastering, what does ‘floating’ mean exactly?

    I've got a house that needs all the render removing and re-doing. Is it better to render up to the fascia boards or remove all the fascias and render to the top then add the fascias after? Thanks

    I patched a drywall hole in my house but the seams are still a bit visible. How do I solve this and get rid of the problem? What will I need (tools, equipment, etc.)? Any safety tips?

    So, I've got a wall in my hallway that's back to brick. I'm going to hardwall directly onto the bricks but I'm stuck with that I do when it comes to the window. The windows are being replaced but i presume it would be better to do the hardwalling and plastering before the windows go on? Do i put some angle bead on to the brick and then apply the hardwall or the other way around? Then do i do the internal edge around the window before the windows or should i do the main wall then do the internal edge once the new windows are in? Any advice on the process i should be following would be great! Thanks

    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
