5 Montagu Square ceiling restoration and redecoration

GD Construction has built itself a solid reputation as a reliable and efficient independent building contractor covering London and the Home Counties. Artisan Plastercraft and Artisan Painting & Decorating recently completed work on Flat 2, 5 Montagu Square in London for GD Construction, which required work from both Artisan companies at either end of the property’s refurbishment.

Work began for the decorating team with paint removal, using chemical poultice applied to the plaster cornices to enable Artisan’s Master Plasterers to take squeezes. These rubber impressions were used to recreate match-to-existing plaster cornice mouldings to reinstate after the ceiling works had been completed. The lath and plaster ceiling was taken down and later reinstated by Artisan Plastercraft, along with refitting the cornice mouldings. And finally, Artisan’s decorators repainted the ceiling and cornice in breathable paint suitable for lime plaster.
