Fixing plasterboard over existing ceiling


Postby Pastyman » Wed Aug 25, 2010 4:30 pm

In our single storey spare room it appears there is no insulation above the plastered ceiling board. It is a sloping ceiling. I want to add a layer of Gyproc Thermaline Insulation board and have it plastered again to increase the insulation. I assume I have to screw the board in place so is there any easy way of finding the existing rafters? Thanks.
