When is this deal on?

If you live in a house with 7 feet 6inch or 8 feet high ceilings, you just wont realise how useful this type of platform is until you have one. Great too for other odd jobs but brilliant with those ceiling heights. Oh and £30 is a bargain.

good stuff

I'm going to get two and strap them to my feet to skim my ceiling. So not looking forward to it, skim ceilings is worse than child birth and only possibly topped by man flu.


This reminds me of poor old Harold

Good point but 115 vice 150kg rating. Not important unless you're a lardy like me. ;-)

Do you work for screwfix by any chance?

hehe thankfully i'm under 115kg (18 stone!) so it's wasn't a problem for me and the extra length means less time shuffling the thing round the room.

I decided skimming my knackered fifty year old ceilings was a nightmare too far so I boarded them with 9mm tapered edge plasterboard then taped and filled. It's still a horror to do but at least most of the physical stuff you can stop and start. The sanding makes lot's of nasty mess but it's quite quick to do. With the first one I did I put noggins in between the joists in the loft for the ends of the boards, but that was knee killing trauma, so with the latter ones i have used Grip-fill adhesive to bond the boards to the old ceilings. The results are far better than the professionally skimmed ceilings in the other part of the house and the resulting ceilings are very strong so it's worth consideration as an alternative to traditional skimming.

@ VDisillusioned

I wouldn't get too hopeful on the Grip-fill idea to bond your plasterboards to the old ceiling.
You'll be sitting there one night soon and a whole board will fall right down and frighten the **** out of you.
Leave these jobs to the pros and sleep safely in your bed at night !!

DUH! You don't rely on the Grip-fill to hold the boards up, you screw the boards up to joists, but use the Grip-fill to negate the need for noggins at the ends of the boards so they don't flex and crack the joints.

I'm a tradesman so used to it, its still not the nicest job - plastering is not my main trade but I've done a lot of skimming for years. I ripped my lath n plaster black mortar ceiling down, nogged it, boarded with 12.5 fireboard, now scrim then skim. But its gonna hurt :-)

I bet getting the lath down was fun. We once had a cottage that had reed and plaster ceilings. Getting them down was probably the filthiest job I have ever done, 120 years of bird crud, soot and god knows what. Even with good quality masks we were coughing up black for weeks.

If you are used to it then I think skimming is the way to go with ceilings or dry lining. Taping and filling seems very popular in the US but I can't see why. It's perfect for the DIYer because you can take it on a little bit at a time and unlike plastering it's easy to get a perfect finish. But it takes far longer overall than skimming and the sanding is extremely messy. If I were to do a ceiling for profit I would skim, though good job I never will because I don't think my back would take it
