Dm1402 Victorian Coving
For fixing and sealing polystyrene coving, ceiling facilities tiles and different ornamental polystyrene products to sound surfaces. Now use a trowel or scraper to spread the adhesive across the again edges of the coving. Make certain the whole length of the coving makes contact with the wall and ceiling.
• Delaminated plaster, both in the skinny finish coats or even through the bottom coats. • Patches of lacking plasterwork, typically exposing areas of the lath (these will be apparent from the ground I know, duh!). • Thin hairline cracks in random patterns across the ceilings surface. If you do resolve to board over the ceiling, I’d screw up some skinny laths first, and then board onto the lath. www.silvercornices.com.au/plaster-cornices A no nonsense e-book that even Conservation Officers like and use!
Then fix 12.5mm plasterboards to the underside of the original joists using 38mm drywall screws as regular. Use the marks on the walls to snap a chalk line onto the plasterboards, exhibiting you where to place the screws.
Board joints are then taped and stuffed if tapered edge boards are used, or skimmed with finish plaster if sq. edged boards are used. An even better way to overboard a ceiling or wall is to ‘batten out’ first. Here, appx 25mm x 50mm battens are fixed flat, beneath the prevailing lath and plasterwork, by screwing through it, into the present ceiling joists. The battens could also be packed degree/flat utilizing skinny plastic or timber ‘shims’ as they are screwed tight.
