      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.

          I called Jake on Monday, he was out to quote on Tuesday and the jobs were completed on Wednesday. We had been left needing a plasterer after having new floors installed. We also had some other jobs that needing doing like removal and repair of a skylight, old patch jobs I'd attempted myself over the years and other nicks and things on the walls. Well Jake completed these jobs to the highest of standards, he is very clean and tidy. Jake is friendly and polite with a great attitude. He noticed that our a.c was leaking down our wall and after having a look, he was also able to fix our a.c drainage issue. If you are looking for a reliable, fast working, quality job, done right, Jake is your guy. I will be highly recommending him to everyone. Bonus that he loved our dogs. Thanks again Jake!

          Jake is one of the most ethical, efficient and professional tradesman I have come across. After a recent move, removalists had made a large hole in the plasterboard of my new home and tried to rectify it with an extremely substandard repair job. Within hours of explaining the situation to Jake, he was able to rectify the damage to a premium standard at a more than competitive price. Thanks Jake! Your exemplary customer service and skilled workmanship has allowed me to relax and enjoy my new home. I would highly recommend Jake for any plastering requirements.

          Recently had a crack in the ceiling develop. Not only was Jake able to plaster the area, but he rectified the problem and reinforced the area so there wouldnt be a reoccurrence in the future. Jake communication leading up to the Job was flawless, he arrived on time and executed the repair as quoted. We were extremely happy with his professionalism on the first job we had him come back and repair our investment property once the renters moved out. No job was too small, he even done the minor holes left by the picture hangers. The great thing about Jakes work compared to my attempt to spak fill is that he leaves such a smooth finish that all I need to do is prime and paint - no sanding required. He also quoted for free, his prices were very reasonable considering the amount of work I had done. And last of all -hes available!......half the tradies I called didnt even turn up or wouldnt touch the residential stuff. He's definitely a Tradey im putting in the "Go To List" Its hard to find good Tradies these days with fair prices, If you want someone reliable give this guy a call - he wont disappoint.

          Jake was a pleasure to work with. We asked Jake to provide some plastering repairs and he not only repaired what we requested, he took the step to repair a large number of additional items that we missed, all for the original price. We felt safe leaving Jake to carry out repairs while we were away. We would highly recommend him for future works.

          When I was moving house Jake fixed up a few walls and I couldn’t be happier with the job he did. From the first point of contact to the quote and completion of the job, he provided quality and timely service. Something that is very uncommon in Townsville. Jake took the time to walk me through the quote, explaining exactly what he was doing. I highly recommend him for any plastering jobs and will be keeping his number for the future

          As a trusted company, we are often asked about the materials that we use, their benefit as well as why we do what we do.

          Below are the most frequently asked questions that our expert plasterers are asked in our Townsville community.

          If you have a question, don’t hesitate to give us, your local plasterers in Townsville, a call and speak to our team directly about your project and how we can help you.

          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

          Contact the plasterers in Townsville with extensive experience with suspended ceiling installations today!

          Do you do small repairs?

          Most plasterers in Townsville focus on new homes and large renovations exclusively. However, we take care of all aspects of dry wall and plaster repairs. From small hole in the wall jobs through to whole wall repairs. We’re the highly skilled plasterers to call for all your repairs and home improvement projects.
