  • Hi noseall,
    Sorry to bother, looking for professional advice (as usual), hope you have a min to spare.
    In a small room, removed old wall paper and underneath old skimming plaster which looks and feels solid, but has dozens thin, hairline cracks. We would prefer to paint that wall white, but guess cracks will show up. Wondered if you can advise on best way to go about it?
    Thanks

    As long as the plaster is stable, then most instances you can PVA and skim (plaster) over. We use Blu-Grit for kitchen ceilings or surfaces that are high suction or a wee bit dodgy.

    Hi noseall, after some info, I've just seen a post from way back in 2018 regarding asbestos. You said that there was no way that once asbestos became illegal it wouldn't be used. Surely surveyors, honest builders, builder companies and the NHBC would have ousted up on any banned material being used ?

    I'm not sure your actual question here? Asbestos is not used or knowingly used, no. There are still many houses with existing asbestos features and builders generally work around any existing items of asbestos that are present.
    HI noseall, not sure if you saw my comment but I have a question about the image you posted if you have time to answer.

    The black uprights in the pic, they're attached to the back of the wall, not concreted in to the ground? Are they wood are steel? And I'm guessing you've had no issues with wind load?

    Take care.
    Hi noseall, I may have caused myself a bit of a dilemma ? Having read some of your answers on a similar thread, you may be the right guy to ask. If you have the time, would you drop me an e-mail at gazshot@aol.com.
    Very much appreciated,
    Gary

    Hi Justin,

    Quite busy this year. When were you thinking?
    Could I ask you to input your opinion on my thread in the roofing section. But stuck on this measurement of laying out slates.
    12mm Osb just on the legs. Like night and day. Took all the lateral movement out that I was worried about. TY

    Hi Noseall,

    I'm putting together an article on dot-and-dab dry lining for a community magazine in Bristol, and I was wondering if you would allow me to use this picture of yours:

    https://www.diynot.com/diy/media/untitled.81114/

    It's a fantastic example of how to do it right!

    I can send you the piece once it's done.

    Cheers,
    Jamie
