    I'm looking for some advice. I'm trying to see if the textured ceiling in my house is artex or just painted over render. My partner is worried about asbestos as some has come down during building works.
    It seems to be peeling like paint and underneath is what looks like plaster just scraped on. 20210925_145533.jpg 20210925_145531.jpg 20210925_145517.jpg

    Looks like artex. Is there white paper tape over the plasterboard joint? That became popular after asbestos was taken out of the product.
    Doubt it has asbestos in looking at it by the pattern and the fact it seems soft but you need to get it tested as only way to be sure.

    If house was built late 90s then again unlikely to have asbestos. Early 90s was last time I seen asbestos in artex brands of which there are / were many. Artex brand (most popular) became asbestos free late 80s early 90s but other brands still had asbestos.. 2000 is when it was band
