A new ceiling

After work on our roof, a number of roof tiles were not replaced properly. This caused a leak in our dormer window. The ceiling started to show brown spots and the roof tile was saturated with water. After breaking up the bad parts, we could see through the hole to see if the leak had been fixed. Once this was resolved, it was time to repair the damage and make the dormer window neat again.

Ceiling repair with MDF

For the repair of the ceiling of the dormer window, a new plate can be placed against it, but you cannot get this size at a hardware store. TOSIZE.se offered a solution. All kinds of wood can be ordered there in all different sizes. Ideal! We have chosen MDF Lakdrager. This is an MDF board with a lacquer-carrying foil, so that the ceiling paint does not immediately penetrate into the wood during painting.

The board was neatly delivered with a protective edge against damage. It was exactly the size and fit perfectly. I marked out the dimensions of the beams on the MDF plate and pre-drilled and countersunk four holes per beam, so that the screws fit in nicely and then finished neatly with a filler. Two more corners had to be sawn out by hand due to... the skirting boards against the frame. Placing the plate against it was the hardest work, but once it was screwed down, I could start sealing the sides and filling the screw holes. Then I sanded everything (including the side walls) so that everything is nice and neat again.
