leaving your old ceiling up and screwing up metal batten to your timber rafters and installing a new ceiling to the metal batten. This is very useful and cost affected because there is less mess from pulling down the old ceiling. If you have insulation in your old ceiling you will not need to either remove or replaced it. Feedback has also been that because there is a 24mm air pocket between the new and old ceiling, this also acts as a good insulator as well.
Why ceiling overlay might be for you
- Less mess then pulling down ceiling
- Insulation will stay in place
- New cornice will have a neat cleaner finish on the wall
...and why it might not be for you
- Loose 26mm to 35mm depending on batten used of ceiling height

Mark and the team at Fixit ceilings were absolutely amazing. From the moment I made an enquiry to when the job was complete, everything was handled courteously and professionally. The tradespeople arrived on the arranged date and left the house clean at the end of their work.
I have no hesitation in recommending Fixit ceilings and I would definitely use them again in the future.
Thank you so much.

Rang around for cornices fixing in 2 bathrooms and their quote was reasonable. The fixing and painting jobs were done over 2 days and their tradesmen turned up on time and showed care and skills in their work. Now the ceilings are as good as new and I highly recommend Fixit Ceilings.Hoff Ho31/05/19
We've had a few jobs done by Fixit now - including ceiling restrapping, decorative cornice replacement, wall framing insulation and lining, new ceiling including insulation. All the work has been of very high quality, with honest quotes and good advice. Will be back!Heather May Shaw16/04/19
