Lathe and Plaster Ceiling
Our house is about a 100 years old and we are having a new kitchen fitted. The kitchen has a lathe and plaster ceiling. I have been given conflicting advice. On the one hand I am being told to take the ceiling down. Then a plaster told me it would be better to board over it. He said this would strengthen the ceiling. The electrician's advice is also to take the ceiling down. Would appreciate your advice on this and on.........
Quarry Tiled Floor
The floor in the kitchen has the original quarry tiles and is quite uneven. One tiler has told me it needs to come up before it can be retiled. Another tiler says to screed over it. Who is right?
Because of conflicting advice we are receiving this project is turning into a bit of a nightmare!
