I am hoping to get some advice/thoughts on how to best tacking an issue with our ceiling.
Our bedroom ceiling in our Victorian house needed replacement as the old plaster was damp and falling down. I have removed the old plaster and some of the old lathe, but have noticed that the existing joists are bowed/sagging in the middle of the room. The span is a relatively long at 5300mm with old 40x95mm joists at 400 centres.
My initial though was to add a suspended ceiling like gypline and fix to the existing joists.
But if anyone has other thoughts, I would be glad to hear them.
