How To find Christchurch Plasterboard Professionals

Good old kiwi ingenuity and number 8 fencing wire gets us a long way nowadays. Yet when it comes to GIB®, hiring a local Christchurch plasterboard professional makes more sense. With a perfect flat finish needed and mistakes tricky to fix, hiring a drywall expert is by far the best way to go. Finding one is easy because we have done all the hard work for you. Canterbury’s most experienced plasterboard experts are ready and waiting for you to post your plastering job here today.

Services Offered By Plasterboard Professionals

Throughout Christchurch and our region, we are lucky to have a lot of experienced plasterboard experts. Some will be able to provide, install and plaster your GIB®. Others will only do the drywall fixing, not the stopping. When asking for quotes for your plasterboard jobs, be clear on what you are wanting done. That way you are sure to receive accurate quotes from the tradespeople most suitable to do your job.

Plasterboard Fixing

Fixing is the term used to describe the installation of plasterboard. With many different sizes and types, knowing which to the right one to use is a challenge. Wet rooms such as bathrooms, mudrooms and laundries will need one which will not crumble when exposed to moisture. Rigid plasterboard needs to be used if you are wanting to tile over the front of it. A fire resistant kind is needed if your wood burner is close to a wall or an immovable fixture such as a cupboard. Your local Fendleton or Hoon Hay drywall installer will be able to provide you with the right plasterboard for your rooms. They will also ensure that it is correctly installed, particularly where wall bracing units are used.

Replacing GIB® which has cracks from earthquake damage can be cheaper than repairing it, especially if the damage is severe. Major renovation projects which require holes for access or wiring also frequently choose replacement over GIB® stopping. The main advantage of new drywall over old is that it provides a fresh and smooth surface for painting or papering, without a lot of prep work required.

Plasterboard Stopping

One your drywall has be fixed, it will require stopping. This is because there will be screw holes, nail holes and joints which need to be covered. GIB® stopping will provide you with a smooth surface, free of holes, dents or jointing lines. You and your plasterer will need to decide if you require a level 4 or a level 5 finish for each of your rooms. A level 4 finish is most commonly used and requires that all holes are plastered over and joints have paper tape over them. A level 5 finish is used in areas which are going to see a lot of natural or artificial light. It gives a more smooth finish by skimming over the entire wall with plaster.

With all of our plasterboard experts ready and waiting for your job, finding the right one is easy! Simply post your plasterboard job here today and wait for the quotes to roll in. Let the tradies do the hard work, not you.
