I`m hoping someone can give some advice on how to tackle this problem. I have a false plasterboard ceiling in my hall with coving around the edges. We had a problem when a fire alarm went off and after checking all the fire alarms in the house found none of these were the ones making the noise......After taking out the batteries of all our fire alarms the alarm was still going. We eventually discovered the noise was coming from the hall.....the ceiling to be precise...Only not the false ceiling.....the ceiling that the false ceiling was hiding.
The joiners had only gone and left the fire alarm on the old ceiling. After listening to this for a few hours and hoping the batteries would go.....(The didn't) I decided to make a 6" hole in the ceiling to stick my hand through and get to the alarm.....I got it and it was problem solved.
Now i have a 6" hole in the ceiling I need to make good.....I don't want to take the section of ceiling down altogether and replace it as i would have to take the coving down and it would mean a lot of hassle. Whats the best and easiest way of filling the hole I have some spare plaster board the same thickness of the ceiling. Any ideas anyone? All advice gratefully welcomed.
