Bedroom Ceiling Replaced

This bedroom ceiling had collapsed due to the age and the old ceiling strapping letting go. Old plasterglass ceilings in Perth were commonly fixed by plaster strapping over the timber ceiling joists, which bonded to the back of the sheet. Over time due to the weight of the ceiling these straps can start to break. Usually the ceiling will show signs of sagging where the straps have broken and if the problem is noticed soon enough, the ceiling can be propped and re-strapped, saving a lot of mess and money.
