CRACKED CEILINGS


Postby redrum » Wed Jul 09, 2008 8:24 pm

Hi - I've tried everything: Polycell cracked ceilings, gripfill (yes, really). Nothing worked. My uncle (a builder before he retired) suggests that I try Anaglypta 100 because it will cover and because it is plasticized will "give" with the moving ceilings. Of course I could always have them replaced :->>>>>>.

ANY SUGGESTIONS FROM ANYONE? I would be soooooo grateful,

Usually the ceilings crack due to movement from above or movement of the house joists etc. Try adding a few extra dry wall screws along the joints in the plasterboard and across the main panels being sure you hit a joist and not pipes or electrics to help secure it and keep it in position then re-fill any cracks. Worth a try.
