How to repair an Artexed ceiling
I recently decorated a room for a client, part of the job was to repair an Artexed ceiling where the joint tape had come away for whatever reason, either previous water damage or simply failed tape.
I decided to make a video showing how I repaired the ceiling and through to its completion, painted.
So here is the short video showing the steps taken from start to finish.
The same principles can be applied for Artexed walls also.
You may also want to read this article, How To Remove Artex, specifically the section headed “Artex And Health Issues” especially if you have older Artex in your house.

Property Decorating Website
It has been 10 years since the Property Decorating website has been live, it has seen many additions in that time, a gallery, four calculators for working out materials, videos and the very popular blog to mention just a few.
The basic design has remained largely the same throughout this time except a few tweaks here and there. We thought it was about time for a new look, things have changed so much over the past 10 years, not only in design of websites but the speed we access the web and also how we view the web.
With more and more people using devices such as smartphones, tablets etc. to view websites. And in fact looking at our stats we are getting around 50-60% of visitors now using these devices.
So to ensure our visitors can continue to view our site and gain access to our resources we are in the process of making a new design for the website and blog. The new design ensures all devices can view and use every page with no issues, and is following the trend for these ‘smart’ devices. So if you use a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone everyone can enjoy a great experience of Property Decorating.
Sneak preview of the new website
Here is a screenshot of the new look Property Decorating, we are awaiting some new images and have some final tweaks to do but should be going live soon.
The new look design will also be applied to the blog (which launched in 2008) and will come online a few weeks after the new website goes live, so for now the existing design will be visible, but all the great content will still be available.
