The plaster on ceilings can often crack over time and it can also be susceptible to unsightly marks or imperfections due to flooding or water damage from bathrooms. If plaster has cracks, decaying spots or has bubbled slightly from water damage then it can usually be skimmed rather than replaced. This has the advantage of being a fast and reasonably-priced repair that will have your ceiling looking like new again.
Your plasterer will first check that the ceiling is dry and sound before spreading a layer of plaster over the ceiling. Skimming is often the best way to deal with textured or artexed ceilings. The textured surface can be lightly scraped away and then a skim of plaster applied. This is preferable to plastering the entire ceiling from scratch. The cost of having your ceiling skimmed will depend on the size of the room and how much preparation work is needed beforehand.
