Plasterboard foil for covering a bad ceiling

Hi,

I’ve finished removing various layers of woodchip wallpaper from the hallway ceiling and I’ve found the ceiling is everything but not decent. This is what I have: https://imgur.com/a/7lwvV5C/

Would using a plasterboard foil be a solution for covering all the imperfections? I’m not into wallpaper to be fair.

I’ve found something like Knauf plasterboard at Wickes which should be easily screwed on the ceiling.

Thanks πŸ™

Plasterboard ceiling fixings for ceiling lamp

Hi, I’m new to plasterboard. Which fixings would work best for hanging a ceiling lamp (a Hue ceiling lamps 35cm diameter) which weight 3.5kg? I did a research online but found a load of options at screwfix and wickes. I doubt they are all the same.

Thanks a lot! EE

Whats too heavy - plasterboard

I have a 4x4m bedroom with very thin walls. I've been looking at acoustic plaster board which tends to be quite heavy.

I've seen one board which is plaster, 2x layers of rubber and some foam.

My first thought was to double layer but I'm concerned about the integrity and don't want anything falling down!

Has any one any advice on this, or sound proofing in general?

To my knowledge there is breezeblock between the two properties with wood/ plasterboard ontop

Thanks

Expanding foam around plastic radiator pipes behind plasterboard wall?

Hi all. I've recently had 2 radiators moved and now I have some fairly sizeable gaps in my plasterboard from where sections were cut out and pipes were closed off. I'm wondering if it's ok to use expanding foam in the cavities which will cover the pipes and T junctions, before I attach new plasterboard and then skim to finish?

Handling 3m sheets of plasterboard

Plasterboard fixing for a 12kg mirror

Hi all,

After some research and advice from a friend I have come to the conclusion that the best 2 plasterboard fixings on the market are the GripIt and Geefix - question is - which one do I go with?

Friend says GripIt but found the Geefix online and the large support piece at the rear and the teeth which hold it in place as well lead me more to that - additionally the bracket that is supplied with the GripIt set isn't good - long extended arm at 90 Β° will make the mirror protrude into the room instead of being flush and vertical as well as reduce its load bearing strength.

Any advice from anyone who has vast experience in plasterboard fixings?

Thanks.

Plasterboard and shelves

I want to add some melamine shelves into the cubby of a small laundry. I thought the plasterboard was square and the gap was going to be perfect for 900x300 shelves, however, the plasterboard is not exactly square and it looks like the space I want to put the shelves into is anywhere between 0 - 15 mm too tight.

Question: would it be better to score/cut a small gap into the plasterboard to provide some relief for the shelves, or should I try to cut the melamine shelves to fit the space?

The shelves will be supported with brackets.

Mounting opening MDF panel as a door to plasterboard - support options (caster wheels?)

Long story short - I am blocking off an area in my home with a large mdf panel (18mm thick - piece weights ~12kg). It will be like a door blocking off a space, so it will swing open and close. The only surface it can hang from is a hollow plasterboard wall. I can't ad wood behind the plasterboard.

My plan is to hang it with 4 concealed hinges - way more than it needs - and I was considering adding a caster wheel like this link - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4x-32-mm-Trolley-Wheels-Heavy-Duty-Furniture-Rubber-Swivel-Brake-Castor-UK/353219968680?hash=item523d8cfea8:g:nsYAAOSw41lfdEOg . I was going to add the wheel to the far edge of the mdf - furthest away from the wall it is attached to - to give it just a little bit of extra support for the weight.

Most caster wheels are designed to sit under a structure, but I was going to add this horizontally mounted to the back of the mdf to just give a bit of support and not be fully load bearing.

I wondered if anyone had any thoughts on any other way that i might be able to support my mdf panel hanging from my plasterboard in a better way than I have described?

Thank you!

Home sound proofing (improvement) with mass loaded vinyl on top of existing plasterboard

I have a wall in my home that blocks pretty much zero sound. I'm renovating the room and am using the opportunity to reduce the sound transmission between these two rooms. My aim is to reduce sound, not sound proof the room entirely (which is lucky as I read that this is virtually impossible to do without major effort).

My current stud wall is standard 12.5mm (half inch?) plasterboard, then hollow, then another 12.5mm plasterboard.

My plan is to hang thin mass loaded vinyl on top of the existing plasterboard wall, and then hand a new layer of acoustic plasterboard on top.

I wanted to know if anyone has done something like this to reduce sound transfer? Did it work well? Am I missing something with this plan - I've never installed mass loaded vinyl or acoustic plasterboard!
