Skimming failed

My ceiling in living room was flaky and uneven due to patch up past years. It’s concrete and an older building. I decided to get it plastered skimmed. Thought it would work but it didn’t. Cracked and blown out most places. I have informed the builder. I am left very upset and stressed as to what I do now. He tried his best but it just won’t stick on. Is a plasterboard another option. I don’t think plastering would work. He did use PVA.

Plaster boards will go well, with 2 inches screw and a glue.

If you do plastering again you may just face same problem again, as you would have to strip out all the ceiling, and start again.

Hope that helps

Hi there, did your builder PVA the walls he was applying the plaster to ? Also did you allow it to dry long enough before decorating etc.
