What preparation work is to be performed before the installation of the ‘Foamed Vermitex’ can proceed?

When installing ‘Foamed Vermitex’ we always recommend that a water-resistant sealant be applied (1) above the ceiling to prevent undue moisture absorption. NOTE (1): If this is not carried out efflorescence or mould may appear to the underside of stable Ceilings and in the case of old and dilapidated ceilings this may have grave consequences, with the collapse of the Ceiling membrane a distinct possibility! With such ceilings, we do recommend ‘stabilisation’ and in particular cases ‘full restoration’, before proceeding with the application of ‘Foamed Vermitex’ (please refer to Heritage Council of NSW or L & A Fazzini MFG P/L for information).
