Fire rated plasterboard installation
Plasterboard and Gyprock are fire rated when they have been built with a fire rated additive.
Essentially, in the case of a house fire, fire rated plasterboard buys time for appropriate action to be taken (evacuation or emergency services etc), it slows down the fire as it doesn’t catch light as quickly as non fire resistant materials.
Typically, you will see a pink layer on one of the sides of the plasterboard indicating that it is fire resistant.

What is gyprock?
Gyprock is a branded name of materials used in the plastering industry throughout Australia.
We are experienced Gyprock plasterers in Townsville QLD.
Gyprock has become synonymous with plaster, much like Kleenex is synonymous with tissues. The actual product is commonly referred to as plasterboard, drywall, gypsum board among others. Plasterers are the tradespeople who are responsible to hanging the plasterboard sheets and then applying tape and plaster to blend the joins together creating a smooth and seamless finish.
We’re the Townsville plasterers you can count on for an awesome job done at a fair price on all aspects of gyprock repairs and installations for your home renovation or extension.
Can water damage on a ceiling be repaired?
Most of the time, yes. Water damage on a ceiling is often characterised by an obvious stain with brown edges. The most common cause of water damage is a leaking or burst pipe behind the wall or a leaking roof. Water damage is best repaired quickly after the water is first noticed. This is to ensure that the moisture is not left to grow mould or that is doesn’t spread to a larger area of the ceiling or walls. Check with your home insurance company to check if you’re fully insured against water damage. Chances are you’ve got a least some coverage meaning the cost to repair a ceiling will be minimal.
Give us a call to get your water damaged ceiling repaired in Townsville right away.
Why are popcorn ceilings bad?
Popcorn ceilings also known as Vermiculite ceilings are not bad in and of themselves. What has earnt them their bad reputation is that vermiculite is a spray on or painted on substance which has been known to contain asbestos in some cases (not all!).
Asbestos is a health risk when it is airborne. Vermiculite ceilings that contain asbestos can release the asbestos when they deteriorate of crack.
One option is to scrape the vermiculite off the ceiling or remove the ceiling. Sometimes however it can be more cost effective to construct a false ceiling (a plastering service we offer) underneath the existing vermiculite ceiling. That way the potentially asbestos containing vermiculite is not disturbed is physcally sperated from the occupants of the home removing the health risks assosiated with asbestos exposure. Get in touch with the professional plasterers to find out how much that will cost and if it is a good option for your home in Townsville.
What are the benefits of a suspended ceiling?
There are many reasons why residents in north Queensland decide to install a suspended also known as a floating or false ceiling as part of their home renovations. Here’s some of the most common reasons:
- hide utilities such as electrical wiring and pipework
- better soundproofing
- better insulation
- can install downlights
- hide vermiculite ceilings
- Better accoustics
- Asthetic appeal
