What do you need to know about removing artex from walls or ceilings?
Artex is a surface coating used to give textured designs to walls and ceilings. It has become a lot less popular in recent years, which is why its removal has become an increasingly popular tradesman’s service.
There are a number of solutions for artex removal, from sanding the artex to plastering over it. Ask a tradesman what solutions they can offer. Based on your budget, the speed you need the work completed and the size of the area, certain options may be more suitable for you. You should also consider after-care: once the artex has been removed will you have a good degree of mess to clean up, and will you be painting the walls afterwards?
Be aware that artex made before and during the 1980s may contain asbestos. Discuss this with your tradesmen, as if your walls or ceiling do contain asbestos it is important to have it safely removed as soon as possible.
