Hi all

I am going to be overboarding our spare bedroom lid, its knackered, old artex, water damage, uneven..the original plan was to use insulated plasterboard, then i thought about sticking jablite flooring polysterene on there before boarding with feather edge plasterboard

I can get the smaller size board and put that up easy enough with help from the mrs...the full size sheets will be a different matter though, we wont be able to handle them between us

Plastering isnt an option because it will involve having to tear the existing ceiling down

Does anyone have any other options?


I intend to live forever......So far, so good

One possibility would be to frame out with metal profile (see Gyproc Casoline site) then board out and after each board is fixed drop-in something like mineral wool batting on top of the fixed board. For the last board you do need to get the insulation in first which can involve string, nails, etc.
