    I have a ceiling in one room which has been progressively falling apart. It’s approximately 1.5 metres square in size. What is the best way for me to repair this growing gap in the ceiling? Will there be a need to remove any additional plasterboard in the process or just this section?

    Hello all I’m sure some of you have had this issue yourselves where cracks show up on walls, but I’ve had some reappearing hairline cracks along some of my walls, even after repainting the walls. I had previously filled these cracks using compound with coats of paint on after – but they still show up again in time. Is there anyway ways that I can resolve these recurring hairline cracks? Any advice would be appreciated on this!

    Hello Myself and my partner are looking at some new homes which feature pebbledash walls on the outside. We would prefer the traditional brick look, as best as possible, rather than the existing pebbledash. We would consider these houses if there are suitable removal methods. Can the pebbledash layers be removed without leaving stains or damage to the brickwork beneath? Could bricks underneath be damaged in the process? Is the whole process expense typically?

    What is the average cost of having lime render? It’s for the back of a 2 bed Victorian terrace and the old render needs removing first. Thank you!

    Recently we have had one of our bedrooms re-plastered by a professional plasterer and decorator, but I’ve begun to notice that some of the areas are looking quite poorly done and not coated particularly thickly. Evident around plug sockets, switches and other fixtures in particular. It appears to be one layer of plaster that has been used. Is this normal for plasterwork nowadays? I recall that in previous years, plasterers would use two layers, but perhaps things have changed. I would like to know for sure, so that I know whether I will need to contact the plaster regarding their work. I would appreciate any information about this.

    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
