Plasterboarding downstairs ceiling in a Reema Hollow Panel house
Hello, I am looking to replaster the ceilings in the kitchen and living room of my house which is Reema Hollow Panel construction. The kitchen and bathroom ceilings currently have polystyrene tiles. I know the floor joists above these rooms are concrete so I am wondering how to attach the plasterboard as I assume I will not be able to screw the boards into the concrete joists.
any advice on how to attach the boards would be very welcome.
You could always batten the ceiling, using say 2x1 it would drop the ceiling height a little but would get around the issue of fixing the plasterboard to the ceiling
