no i was asking if you was boarding over it or scrapeing it back and just skimming the wall, trust me ive bin doin this long enuff to know my job.
so just out of interest how comes your dot and dabbin all the walls why dnt you just scrape off all the crap bond the chases and skim the exsisting saves you buying so many boards and adhesive and paying for someone to put them up. if your plasterers any good hell get a good finish on practically anything. obviously you still have to board the stud walls and round the window also the more solid you r walls are the more chance of getting a nice fixing for your units youll have.
cos scraping off the artex is a pain the arse and hellish job so boarding over is easier and cheaper than having to pay a plasterer twice as much money to plaster twice (bonding then finish on top) - he'' be wanting £600 for that!!!
I asked him when he was here about that and he said it IS cheaper to just board over... cos u need to skim bonding on and then the finish coat - twice as much work / twice as much money - the boards were only £50.. couple o bags of dab on top...
i see what you mean about the hold for units - i may consider it on that wall
