    Afternoon all,

    Need your help.

    Going to remove the bathroom ceiling plasterboard due to asbestos. The pickle is the walls are tiled up to the top.

    Anyway to fit new plasterboard in the ceiling without removing tiles from the wall while getting a nice corner finishing?

    Use 12" wide pieces of plasterboard around the perimeter where joists are at 90 degrees, or pieces that are wide enough to reach the first joist where they are parallel to the wall & fill in the rest with full sheets.
    Extra noggins would be required.

    Why do think there is asbestos? I'd be inclined to leave it alone and just paint it. No risk if not disturbed.

    +1 with stevie22 on the idea of leaving intact and redecorating. If there is asbestos present it's encapsulated by the painted finish.

    Recent report done mentioned asbestos artex. They advised to supervise and monitor but there is some concern as the people living there have asthma.

    Any provisional alternative?

    If you disturb it you will create dust: not a good idea for asthmatics

    House will only be available in later April so that ka the best i have to work from.

    All of the ceilings will be removed due to artex so trying to find the best way to cut costs.
