What does a Villaboard installation include?

Your installer can help with every step from advice on the best materials through to the actual Villaboard installation. Here’s what you can expect:


Villaboard wall installation

Your installation professional will start by helping you choose the right type of Villaboard sheeting. 6mm is standard for residential applications, while commercial applications usually use 9mm or 12mm in heavy-duty situations. If your existing wall sheeting needs removal, they’ll assist with this, but otherwise, they’ll get straight into measuring the space to determine the best placement for your Villaboard installation. Your installer will add internal angles into any corners before they start. They’ll work from ceiling to floor, so they’ll need to start by installing a nail ledge on the joist to rest the top sheets on. Lifting and installing Villaboard is a two-person job because they’re very heavy materials. They’ll rest the panel on the nail ledge, slide it into place, and nail it into the studs. Once the top row is installed, your installer will add the bottom row, staggering the sheets to avoid floor to ceiling join lines. If a panel needs holes for electricals or plumbing, your technician will mark and cut these holes before installing. If they need to cut smaller pieces, they’ll use a special cutter to cut the board down to size. Your installer will continue working until all gaps are covered. Finally, they’ll patch up any joints and nail holes by applying coats of compound and paper tape, smoothing the surface as they go.


Villaboard ceiling installation

Installing Villaboard ceilings is a similar process. Your installer will use both nails and adhesive to secure your staggered sheeting to the framing. Once both your ceilings and walls are installed, they’ll finish off the joints and corners and cover up nail holes with compound. Then they’ll install regular plaster cornices using adhesive and setting compound.


Villaboard repairs

Villaboard is a tough material but it can sometimes need repairing, especially if you’ve removed tiles from the surface during a renovation. If it’s a very small hole, crack, or scratch, your technician may be able to use compound to patch the surface. But if it’s a larger hole, your technician will cut around it to make a clean shape, then they’ll cut a matching shape from wood to fit into the hole. They’ll secure this with stud adhesive and screws before covering the surface of the wood with gyprock compound. Once dry, they’ll sand this back to smooth, vacuum away the dust and apply a thin topcoat of compound. Finally, they’ll sand once again and it’ll be ready to paint.
