Re: EEK my kitchen ceiling fell down over the weekend

Holly sh.t! It looks like they will have to scrape the plaster all the way to the seams and put the new one. I dont think patching up will do the job as the rest of the ceiling may start peeling off again and eventually it would also fall down I would say few days work including drying it out...

BTW: Did you have any short circuit related explosion in the past (just looking at the lamps)?

Something like this?



The ceiling will need to be stripped back to completely sound areas. That may mean the whole ceiling. It should easily be done inside one day. I had three rooms plastered in under four hours including preparation and clearing up

Re: EEK my kitchen ceiling fell down over the weekend

Looking at that I reckon you could strip the rest of that in a couple of hours, then you are just be paying for the guys to plaster.... the saving would probably pay for your daughters party.... but with your luck full saftey harness, and hard hat would be required

Certainly a simple enough job to strip off the loose plaster:
Clear the kitchen and, preferably, cover surfaces with dust sheets.
Scrape off the loose plaster. Use a good step ladder and wear goggles.

Hardest part of the job: find some way to get rid of the plaster that complies with all the regulations

Re: EEK my kitchen ceiling fell down over the weekend

Sorry to hear that Sutter. They should be able to get your kitchen back the following day, ok without paint! but plaster dries in about 12 hours then needs to be left before painting!
