Guide To Hiring Wellington Plasterboard Professionals

DIY might be in our blood, but sometimes our results leave a lot to be desired. Plasterboard is one of those things best left to the experts. It requires a perfect finish and unfortunately it is easy to make a mistake while fixing and stopping. Luckily we have found Wellington’s best plasterboard professionals for you. With their many years of experience and trade qualifications, we are sure you’ll agree they are fantastic too.

Jobs Plasterboard Professionals Do

Within our capital there are plenty of drywall experts to choose from. Some are able to supply, fix and stop your GIB®. Others will instead refer you to a plasterer for stopping. When asking for quotes for your plastering job, you will need to be specific. Are you wanting supply and fixing of the plasterboard only, or do you also need the plastering done? The more detailed you can be with your job, the more accurate your quotes will be from our tradies.

Plasterboard Fixing

Whether you are needing new GIB® installed or want to repair the existing, choosing the right drywall type is vital. When you hire a Hutt Valley or Kapiti Coast plasterboard installer, they can help you choose the best type of drywall for each room. Bathrooms need plasterboard which will not break down in damp and humid conditions. Rooms with wall tiles will require a more rigid type of drywall. Wood burners will need fire resistant plasterboard installed next to it to meet building regulations. Play it smart, hire an expert to install the right GIB® for your job.

Properties with significant renovations happening will often replace rather than repair plasterboard. It can be cheaper and easier to start with fresh and smooth plasterboard when it is old and damaged. Sometimes renovations require large holes to be made for wiring and tradespeople access. Replacing the plasterboard is the more common option when that happens.

As plasterboard also becomes more common in new builds as a structural component, expert knowledge is essential. With each type of wall bracing unit needing a specific plasterboard type, only an experienced installer can make the best decisions on which type to use. This makes DIY plasterboard jobs a costly and dangerous thing to undertake yourself.

Plasterboard Stopping

After your GIB® is fixed, it will need to be stopped. This involves plastering over any holes, cracks or dents to get a smooth, flat surface. A level 4 or a level 5 finish is most commonly used in the plasterboard industry. Level 4 requires that joints are covered with tape and that screw and nail holes are plastered over. A level 5 finish requires a thin skim of plaster over the entire surface of the plasterboard. A level 5 is recommended on walls which are going to have a lot of artificial or natural light upon them. Your local Wellington plasterboard professional will be able to help you identify what level finish your walls will need.

Dogstruction Calls for Repairs to Walls, Skirting and Doors

Don’t be fooled by those cute puppy dog eyes; homeowner Maddie says that ‘butter wouldn’t melt’ when it comes to Indie, her beloved golden retriever x border collie pup. If you’re familiar with that puppy phase — teething, pre-teen cheek and curiosity — you’ll know the damage they can do when exploring their world (aka your home). A Gnawing Time for Indie At around 5 months old, Indie started chewing the walls and skirting boards as a way of coping with what Maddie described as separation anxiety. “She’s very bright, active and needs to be kept busy, so before lockdown when we were out and about, we would give her the run of the house,” Maddie says. “She had a good go at the front and back entrance ways, then in the two bedrooms. “We found the holes pretty much immediately — she was always very sheepish when we saw them — and she would be slinking around with her head down and tail between her legs.” Repairing The Damage Throughout lockdown, Maddie and her wife w

Small Bathroom Renovation Turns Major When The Unexpected Happens

ulian and Lexie had one month, $5k and a straightforward plan to renovate their small bathroom. Let’s just say, if you like a good ‘down to the wire’ reno story, you’ll love this couple’s drama-filled journey from settlement to move in day. We’re talking budget blow-outs, schedule delays, on-the-spot decisions and eight scope changes. Yeah — total ‘Block’ vibes, right? Julian jokes that he had a couple of grey hairs come flying through at a rapid rate. “It was a significant, unforeseen scenario,” Julian says, alluding to the cause of the delays. This eventful Project Story will leave you with practical insights for your own bathroom renovation. You’ll discover: What to look out for in your pre-purchase building inspection How to manage scope and budget changes The full list of bathroom upgrades What they would do in hindsight (involves saving money!) Plus, the awesome before and after photos. Let’s get stuck into i

A 3yo’s Take on Having Plasterers in the Home

t’s not every day you get to show off your crayons — at least that’s how three-year-old Quinn felt shortly after meeting the tradespeople plastering her living room. Quinn’s mother, Kate, tells me the crayons were just the start, and that Wayne and Ronan from Claddagh Plastering coped incredibly well with her daughter’s constant line of questioning while working. “She would walk up beside them and say ‘look at my carrots’, ‘I’ve got cucumber’, and ask them ‘do you want to be my friend?’,” Kate laughs. “Wayne was really good with her, he’d take time to say ‘oh wow, yes, wow look at that’ — I think he’s got young ones at home, so he was used to it. “She’d stand there and watch them work, mesmerised by the plaster being put on, it was very cute.” As Kate and I relish Quinn’s adorable toddler bravado, Kate lets me in on how they got to this point of renovating their home, and let’s just say, anyone with EQC experience will be able to relate. “We Could Start to Se
