    Hi I will appreciate any advice. I had full 2 bedroom renovation done in November/December 2020. All walls and ceilings skimmed, plastered and painted white. Now straight after the paint dry there were few cracks visible on the ceiling and down the wall corners. Now 4 months on on my hall wall plaster is coming off and paint is fleaky from right on the middle to the bottom, now behind this wall is a bathroom shower with wet wall. ( There is no visible leak, no water on the floor, shower battery is fitted opposite to the wall with issues) Could there be possible leak behind wet wall or the plastered wall isn't done correctly? I am not sure if I could post a picture to visualise my problem. Thanks in advance

    As per title: Do I need to use moisture resistant plasterboard on ceiling when wet plastering on top in bathroom? Vaulted ceiling has Insulation backed plasterboard that is not moisture resistant. It's all going to be skimmed in the near future. If it's going to be skimmed over, do I need to get someone to overboard it in green plasterboard before it's skimmed or not? Thanks guys!

    My new home started on the outside wall shelling plaster and the ceiling was cracking back to the wall. It has been taped and unbounded 3 times and it still does it. Can anyone advise please

    My garden wall can't seem to hold paint and bits of render keep cracking and falling off. I assume it's a damp issue. Is there anything i can do?

    Having to continually repaint the black plinth around the bottom of the exterior north facing wall on my 1930s house with the render being very crumbly, paint always lifting/flaking off - even if I apply stabilising solution before Sandtex masonry paint. Above the plinth is fine. Could this be a symptom of an underlying issue? DPC in place and no other issues....

    Is polymer render better than ordinary cement render and if so why? Does it cost more?

    Is it better to get plasterboard or plaster over brick walls in bedroom?

    Asked by Ayesha on 7th Mar 2021

    Blown Plaster in 1930s built property, is gypsum plaster compatible with lime and cement mixed plastered walls, plaster seems to be blown on external walls on isolated areas on one part of each external wall only, is this due to moisture affecting gypsum plaster used at some point in specific areas only, as the grey lime plastered areas are fine?

    Asked by Nadeem on 28th Feb 2021

    So i'm trying to match the tyrolean finish as close as possible on my house. The render has been completely removed on one side of the house and scratch coat has been applied with a 3/1 ratio. I'm looking at buying some of the tyrolean mix that goes with water to try it but can it be applied directly on the scratch coat or does it need a top coat first? If i mix my own tyrolean could i put that straight onto the scratch coat or will i need another coat either way? I'm seeing mixed messages regarding whether it can be applied directly onto the scratch coat or if a topcoat needs to be applied. Thanks for any advice.
