    How can I repair a plasterboard ceiling?


    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?
