Plastering over artex ceilings
Any advice regarding plastering over artex ceilings?
3 Answers from MyBuilder Plasterers
Before plastering over artex you need to scrape back the artexed ceiling or wall as flat as possible then primer with PVA then if needed Bond then plaster finish.

Never scrape artex as it may contain asbestos . A plasterer can skim over the artex or overboard and skim .
