Having an eye for detail is important with all plastering work. A rush job, a lack of attention to prep work or an unskilled DIYer can spell plastering disaster for a homeowner. Luckily using one of our local Auckland plasterers ensures you will achieve a quality finish. Finding one has also never been easier. Let’s go find and hire the right plasterer for your job today.
Types Of Plastering Jobs
Plastering can be done on both internal and external surfaces. Unlike plasterboard which requires a smooth surface, other plastering finishes can be done to suit the client’s preference. This includes finishes such as trowel, stucco, stipple, sponge or Spanish finishes. Most local Auckland plasterers use either traditional sand and cement plaster or modern synthetic plaster for their work. Some of your property features which may require plastering work include:
Leaky Home Plastering Repairs
Poor plastering jobs have contributed towards leaky homes throughout the Auckland region. Plaster repair work which can impact on the water tightness of any property must be done by a Licensed Building Practitioner specialising in plastering. They will be able to plaster over most materials such as block, wire mesh, fibre cement sheets and concrete. Many plasterers will also be approved applicators of specific plastering products such as Monotek or Branz Mpt System.
Plastering During Renovations
Many owners of older character homes from Mt Albert, Newmarket and Mission Bay want to restore their properties to their original condition. This can require the repair or replacement of feature cornices. Cornices are the decorative molds which surround windows, fireplaces and the top of interior walls. Made of plaster, they are easily damaged over time with building movements, leaks and furniture. Specialised plasterers can repair cracked or damaged cornices, or source new replicated ones. For cornices which are no longer manufactured, they can create flexible molds to copy the original cornices to make new replacements for your home.
Older homes with unsightly exterior brickwork can be covered with render. This gives a more modern finish to the outside of a property and is cheaper than replacing the brickwork itself. Interior plasterboard walls can be skim coated to bring back a smooth surface for painting. Any holes, dents or scratches are also able to be fixed during this time too. Cracked or chipped concrete steps can be easily repaired also, greatly improving the aesthetics of your home.
