On my massive to-do list is to rid this house of the horrible splattered texture on the ceilings (something like Googleing the image below).
I have some (very lol) limited skimming experience on walls (well A wall lol), but I appreciate ceilings are a different ball game, and I'm just wondering the best way to go about it.
It's a 1990 build house, so I'd hope there's nothing more sinister than plain old plasterboard underneath. I'm guessing the plaster aint going to stick very well to this horrible stuff, but after paint stripping an entire wall last year (previous owners had painted gallons and gallons of thick silk emulsion on a fresh wall, then covered it badly with wallpaper when it started to flake off) I'm a bit loathe to do some time consuming stripping job.
Might it be better to just rip it off and start again with fresh plasterboard (could use it as an excuse to get some electrical/lighting work done at the same time)? This is probably beyond me (more from a time point of view than skills - I pick most things up quite easily), any ideas how much a pro might charge per room assuming I've already ripped the old ceiling off - to put up new plasterboard and skim? (based on 4m x 5m rooms)
Thanks in advance.
