Our objective is to plaster the existing brick walls to achieve a more modern finish while adhering to airtight standard, All ceilings had also to be dropped/raised to a similar level.
Phase one of the project was the area of the house which was built in the 80,s
First the ceilings were insulated with 100mm double side foil kingspan insulating board taped with blue airtight tape on all joints and corners, the ceilings were then cross battened to prepare for plasterboard slabs.
Before the plasterboards could be done the 10 inch airtight tape had to be stuck with hardcoat to insure airtightness.
The ceilings were then plasterboarded and taped and jointed with joint filler and paper-tape to allow for extra airtightness and more strenght on the joints to help prevent future cracking.
All ceilings were then skimmed using skimcoat.
Rooms were then completed one at a time as is the nature of hardcoat it,s better to finish over it with skimcoat the same day.
