In Amsterdam you can find a lot of old houses with ornamental ceilings. These ceilings do need maintenance. You can not confide that they stay forever in good shape.
Ceilings from the period 1870 – 1900 often suffer from the same problems. We specially mention Amsterdam-Zuid en De Pijp. Because these ceilings are now more than 100 years old, you find cracks in the ornamental ceiling. The underlying problem is often a constuction problem. Especially if the neighbours start renovating or if you have large building projects is the area, you need to pay attention. Look carefully up and check you ceiling! If you find to many cracks in your ceiling, this is not good. And you have to take action.

These photos show how we bring the ceiling back up and secure the construction. This is a temporary solution. The danger of falling down is now gone. It gives the owner time to take action and repair his ceiling.
But if you wait to long, the cracks will get bigger. The construction is under pressure and a part of the ceiling can fall down.
This happened in the above situation. We first secured the ceiling and then started the repair work. This included also bringing back the missing parts.
