    Hi,

    Front bedroom Artex ceiling is damaged from past leak, couple of bits where it sticks downwards and there is a crack from wall to wall, possible to repair? Or job for a plasterer?

    Other rooms have cracks wall to wall which I assume are between the plasterboard sheets.. is there an easy fix prior to painting, don't want to go overboard.

    Hi Benny so you would just board over the Artex? How much should this cost roughly?

    The room is about 13' x 7'..

    Any ideas on the cracks in the other rooms?

    Many thanks!
     
  5. my price would be to remove coving, overboard and skim a ceiling that size and replace lightweight coving.
    £455
    as for the other rooms .
    depends on the sizes.
    looks like theres polyripple or some other texture on 2 of them which you may be able to skim over.
