Completely irrelevant and you sound angry dec.

I'm not getting sucked into an argument. I have posted my thoughts and opinions regarding the op and refuse to post on this topic anymore.

At the end of the day dec this is a DIY forum so will have to agree with RMS and say it is irrelevant

As you ask though I am a spark but have lived in many houses and helped friends and family out with many decorating projects over my vast years!

I just don't understand why you will not help the OP out with the other options for the problem that has been raised. Don't think of it as helping me out but help with the OP 's dilemma. Yes I would also appreciate your advice (being a pro dec) in this regards (if differing from what's been mentioned) as it may also help in any future DIY I may carry out. But don't think of this as the primary reason for giving it out.

Lets keep the post topical and light hearted and not go off on a tangent!

Hello,

In my living room, there were cracks around the ceiling cornice and around the bay window, (it is a Victorian conversion ground floor flat). I used filler to repair the cracks and then painted the whole room. Now, six months later, the cracks re-appear on one side of the bay window and on the ceiling cornice, in the edge between the cornice and the wall. I used normal filer and sanded the area before paining.

Any tips to repair locally without redecorating the whole room and avoid new cracks?

My neighbour upstairs almost every day is moving a furniture (possibly a heavy table or a chest of drawers). It makes a lot of noise and vibration as she drags the furniture and some time it makes the glass on the bay window vibrating. Could it be a reason for the cracks?


svouts, I would use flexible filler rather than caulk, but before I did that, I would tell the upstairs neighbour what effect her furniture-moving habits are having on my cornicing/glazing and ask her to stop.

Are you a tenant, or an owner-occupier?

I'll have you know I do great deal of DIY when my consumption allows it! And I strive to cough up as little much blood-splattered phlegm onto the cornicing as possible.

I suppose exceptions must be made for DIYers on a DIY forum! icon_rolleyes.gif

I am the owner and I spent so much time to decorate the flat last summer icon_sad.gif now there are cracks again and I would like to repair it in a more affective way. Flexible filler sounds ok...

PS: I will definitely tell her to stop dragging her furniture around before I repair it again.

Now I have listed the following options to repair the cracks:

1. Flexible filler
2. Caulk (apply it with the finger, since the crack is on the lower side of the cornice)
3. Unibond MegaGrip Adhesive, Flexible, White, Paint Over (I thought to apply this with my finger and push it in the crack)
4. Flexible Ceiling Paint (I could apply 2-3 layers of paint over the crack, supposed to cover hairline cracks)
5. combination of the above (Flexible filler or Caulk or Flexible Adhesive + Flexible Ceiling Paint)

What would work the best?
