Cracked Artex ceiling

Postby johnch » Wed Jan 30, 2008 8:11 am

The ceiling above the shower in my bathroom is Artexed and has cracked, with the Artex beginning to flake away slightly. I suspect this has got damp over the years since the extractor fan isn't amazingly effective. Is there an easy way I can repair this before it gets too bad - I'm not too keen to get someone in to skim the ceiling as it's only a small area, and all the other ceilings in the house are Artexed. I did repair one small area with bog standard filler from Wickes, then painted over it once it had set and I'd sanded it lightly - that bit is OK, but others areas are now cracking / flaking, so can I treat the whole area so sort this out for good ?

Cheers, John
