Skimming over Artex is one of the most common internal plastering job’s we undertake. Big in the 80’s , Artex was the in thing and done well, it can look good. However, Artex in the wrong hands can look very unsightly and dated like this project here. All the walls in this property had been covered in Artex and after a sample test to confirm it did not contain Asbestos we were able to scrape back the texture and cover the walls with a textured adhesive. A textured adhesive is a superior bonding agent to PVA as it contains grit which forms a key coat for the skimming. The ceilings and walls were then covered in finishing plaster and these rooms was transformed.
