    Default plaster over lead paint

    Real-Debrid

    came across this a wee while back how have some you got round it?
    when we applied the pva it would no tack up.. tried almost straight pva.
    in the end it got sheeted an taped as the downstairs was all new gyproc anyway and ceilings up stairs was half plastering half taping.
    any way i had gave my price got me the job then we had problems with the hall walls..
    i know you can use chemical peel and hack in messy and more time but been told thislebond is supposed to be good but its too pricey and doesnt go far so can price yourself out a job.
    how good is the thislebond ie lead based paint, gloss paint, wallpaper adhesive not taken off properly ive just never saw the point in paying 50quid a tub of pva that would only cover half a living room.

    Davie thistlebond is great stuff and worth every penny for what it does, there is a much cheaper version thats probably better, Febond Blue grit, some where around 25 a tub
    coverage would do a living room and possibly more, used it and like better than Thistle it

    yeah i know have been told its great just the price including that into your price can price you out..
    ill check that out next time. wasnt a big problem as just sheeted it then taped so if anything was more insulation.
    have also been told pva and sharp sand is just as good although never tried it.so thislebond is the best/dearest less coverage etc. how does feb blue grit or the wickes gear wba compaire for you??

    Hi Davie, would it be cheaper to, possibly, undercoat the area that is lead painted then PVA onto the undercoat??? Maybe it would take better to that? Being a decorator in my youth, I remember we had to undercoat any walls which had gloss paint on them before we could wallpaper them. Maybe any painters could back me up, or put me right. Just a thought...........

    the thislebond kind of acts like a undercoat its coloured and primes the surface..the only thing is the area it covers aint much..that job was being partly sheetd anyway all ceilings up and down and all walls upstair skimmed was only a stair well and 3 walls out of upstair that still had leadpaint on. but you can paint over the walls so prob could paint and then pva but again its more time.

    We used it last time on old plaster that had been painted with gloss or shiny paint, did a whole youth centre with 5 tubs,(probably about 40+ boards worth) boarded over the top, then it was skimmed.
    We used the Thistleit over artex on the walls in a cafe and skimmed straight on top.
    Either one is good, Febond I feel is better and cheaper at least half the cost of Thistleit

    We boarded over the Febond on the painted walls, no problem, as long as the original plaster is sound theres no worry.
