1930's bathroom bare walls


Postby yvonnepaul » Sat Mar 29, 2008 6:33 pm

Hi we have just taken off 3 layers of bathroom tiles and all the plaster fell off so took everything out including ceiling we now have bare brick which is great condition.

Need to plaster what can experts recommend to us

a plaster board dot and dab

b plaster board on timber frame

I take it we use the plaster board that has one side insulated for extra protection and also you cant build a frame around the window area so what do you do in these places

any comments will be greatly appreciated

Hello, personally i would dot and dab a moister resistant plasterboard (green board) and skim, foil back will have to be battened out first, so with my suggestion this will eliminate packing out battens for plumbing up, so less time consuming. Try using a supplier like ccf or cpd, they specialise in materials for the plasterer and dryliner etc........ Also not sure what you mean about your window, could you please elaborate? Hope this helps. Regards!

thanks for the advice, the main wall where the shower will be is quite easy to use water board as its got wooden internal posts to fix it to. As for the window its brick so I guess they would dot and dab that area as well????

plasterer should be arriving soon!!!!

Hi, we are very soon to be in the same situation as above! We have removed all the tiles from a fully tiled bathroom and the plaster has come with them!

We have also lost the entire ceiling due to large cracks. My question is..!

Is it best to do the whole room and ceiling in aqua board, or just the area around the bath, that will have the shower over it? and the rest in normal plasterboard? The area around the bath is the only area we shall be tiling, the rest of the room will be skimmed and painted.

Any advice appreciated!

Thanks

Hi,
spanner in the works here.
Right As a tile backer for bathrooms aquaboard great. But if your going to board and plaster standard board no problems. If ceiling still up even though cracked overboard saves time and mess.

Thanks for the help.

Its too late for ceiling im afraid! The rest of the house is a mess (bathroom is second room in the house to be done - rest is still in the 1960's!!!), so we weren't to concerned about that.

Thanks :-)
