Hoping you can advise.
I have just purchsed a 1910 Victorian Terraced House. Throughout there is a real mix of plaster walls, papered walls & ceilings, artex walls & ceilings. The ceilings are the old Lath and Plaster kind, although they appear to be in good condition, the paper over them is peeling off and I want to tidy these up. I want however a quick solution with minimal mess. If I go down the road of overboarding, will this create dangerous loading on the joists?
In addition to the artex walls, which are heavily stippled, is sanding, sealing and skimming an option, or is just removing skirting, coving, and fireplace surround and plasterboarding floor to ceiling over the existing walls an option?
Any advice you can give would be great.
