We would see some of the best materials availed for enhancing the structure of floors and ceiling, however, they can be easily damaged due to water leaks that we don’t even notice.
Check for water damage and stains. If the ceiling drops between joists or nails have pulled through, there can be a build up of dust and other debris that has overloaded the plaster. From the floor, in homes with very high ceilings, it can be hard to see how much the ceiling drops. Period ceiling decorations or ornamental cornice can be hard to repair although you can have them duplicated for a price. If you are contemplating removing walls, the ceilings may have to be re-sheeted to hide the alteration. Reasonable looking Ceilings will present well with flat paint, as the viewer will not be close.
To make sturdy floors, good quality tear-proof and water resisting cement is availed to rule out the porous surface and water retention. When we are inspecting the flooring, we often encounter cavities between the two slabs of the floor and even between two layers of walls. The cavities need to be filled in with cavity closers which again grants thermal insulation and prevents heat from dissipating through the gaps. The corners of walls, which form a zigzag pattern often find gaps in between. These gaps don’t look pleasant and also counteracts heat insulation. These can be covered with angle beads which are thin strips of metal or wood.
