FAQs

how to get artex off a ceiling?

Artex is a water based surface coating which is used to decorate both ceilings and walls with a textured finish. Back in the 1970’s, artex happens to be very popular when the swirling or spiky effects it creates  were considered to be the best of fashion when it comes to interior designs. However, in today’s world, an artex ceiling is not only considered outdated but also a pain to clean and repair.

 

If you have an artex ceiling in your residential property and looking for a way to get it off, then you’ve come to the right place. In this post, we’re going to show you how its done without much stress.

 

To get started you’d need to get the following tools and material which includes: safety goggles, dust mask and rubber gloves, plastic sheeting, canvas drop cloth ( carpet) or rosin paper (hard floor) and step ladder

 

 

Prepare the room. Start this by moving all furniture out of the room or stack the furniture at the centre of the room and cover using plastic sheets. Once done, cover all non-removable items with plastic sheets and lay down a canvas drop cloth for carpet floors and rosin paper for hard floors

  • Put on your safety gear
  • Use a utility knife or joint knife to slowly chip away at the texture and create a smooth surface.
  • Mix joint compound in a bucket as per the instructions on the package
  • Skim the surface with a thin layer of joint compound to smooth it out using a taping knife, then leave to dry overnight before you proceed
  • Lightly sand the surface smooth with the help of a 220-grit sanding block
  • Use a damp cloth to wipe the surface clean prior to painting.
can you wallpaper over artex?

Although they’re pretty much outdated now, artex happens to be a very popular surface coating option just a few decades ago. Several homeowners with artex in recent times would either want to have them removed or cover them up with stuffs such as a wallpaper. So if you’re wondering whether or not it’s possible to wallpaper over artex, then there you have it. It’s possible to wallpaper over artex, however it’s not advisable as wallpaper may eventually crack over time. On the other hand, the artex can also create ridges beneath the wallpaper which allows unpleasant protrusions in the wallpaper. Instead of applying wallpaper over artex, a more permanent solution would be to cover it with drywall or wet plaster or perhaps just have it removed completely.

 

There are two types of wallpaper, there’s the thin wallpaper application which comes with adhesive on one side as well as a pattern or colour on the other side. With this, all you need do is simply to peel and stick. Then the other type is the sturdier wallpaper that’s more thick and requires a special wallpaper paste. However, it’s important to note that if you choose to wallpaper over your artex, you won’t be able to make use of the thin type of wallpaper, rather you’ll have to incorporate the sturdier  option which makes use of wallpaper paste.

 

The wallpaper paste is the product you mix with water to produce a paste which you’ll have to apply to your walls before applying the applying the regular wallpaper - one without adhesive on one side. Appling wallpaper to an artex decoration may just give you the updated appearance you so much desire.

how much does it cost to remove asbestos artex ceiling?

Prior to removing artex on your ceiling, it’s always crucial to determine whether or not the surface coating material contains asbestos. Asides from this, you may also wish to know how much you’re going to have the asbestos artex ceiling removed. If yes, then you’ve come to the right place! In order to help you make the best informed decision possible, this post was written to help give you an idea of the price it’s going to cost to remove asbestos artex ceiling in the UK.

 

Unfortunately, as simple as it seems, there’s no single straightforward answer to this question as there are many factors that can affect the cost of hiring an asbestos artex removal professional. These factors include the project’s scale, the complexity of the area which needs to be removed as well as the need for extra materials. Generally, professional artex removal companies charge a standard rate for their labour. As a result, you can always predict that the tradesperson’s labour will be more costly based on the extent of the job. Therefore, the more costly the labour fees will be if the job takes longer time to complete.

 

On the average, a tradesperson will charge within the range of £250 to £400 on a daily basis to undertake the project for you. And of course, you can expect these rates to vary based on the company hired as well as the area you live in. For rxample, you can expect that a tradesperson’s charges would be higher in an area such as Central London, as opposed to other areas which are more rural.

what is artex?

Artex simply refers to a surface coating that’s commonly incorporated for interior decorating. Although it’s usually found on ceilings but it can also be used on the walls as well. The surface coating enables the professional plasterer or decorator add both texture as well as patterns to it. Originally, the name “Artex is the trademark of a UK based company known as Artex Ltd. Over time, the Artex name has been used to refer to all textured coatings, although there are other businesses that manufacture and sell identical products.

 

You can find Artex on ceilings as well as walls of mainly residential properties. In the 70’s and 80’s, it was pretty much a trend to have either your wall or ceiling ( can be both ) covered with Artex. The surface coating can be incorporated to create raised, textured swirls as well as patterns on ceiling and walls. There are a number of different patterns that can be made using Artex and some of these includes the following: Broken leather, swirl, stipple, fan or shell as well as knifed plaster. It can also provide just a bobbly raised uneven patter appearance from top to bottom.

 

Artex is main put to use by mainly decorators ( mostly plasterers). This is a skilled job as it’s tedious to create uninformed patterns especially if you don’t know how or where to start. Although the skill of Artex is very much a trade that’s dying rapidly now, but it was pretty much in high demand especially in the 70’s and 80’s. Nowadays, homeowners now prefer smooth plastered finishes over Artex, as they can be easily painted or wallpapered.
