What does a gyprock installation or repair include?

Installing or repairing gyprock drywall generally involves assessing your space, measuring, cutting, applying adhesive, hanging, joining, and finishing. But there can be some variation in the method, depending on where your gyprock is being installed. Here are some of the most common drywall installation and repair jobs:


Gyprock wall installation

Installing gyprock walls starts with measuring the wall dimensions and cutting the plasterboard sheet with a knife. Your plasterboard installer will do one sheet at a time, laying sheets of gyprock on the wall studs and attaching with adhesive, then nailing into place. They’ll repeat the process until all gaps are filled with gyprock sheeting, before joining any edges (using angle beads on corners) and coating with Gyprock compounds. Once the compounds are dry, they’ll sand the surface for a smooth finish.


Gyprock ceiling installation

Installing gyprock ceilings involves a similar process to walls, with a few key differences. After measuring and cutting, your installer will then measure and mark locations for electrical wires and fixtures. They’ll cut these holes using a small saw before attaching the gyprock sheets, one at a time, to the ceiling joists with adhesive. Next they’ll screw the sheet into place before moving onto the next sheet, ensuring minimal gaps between sheets. Your installer will use a ladder and will most likely work with a second person to carefully place each sheet on the ceiling. After the ceiling is complete, they’ll join the edges with compounds (up to 3 layers may be required) before sanding smooth.


Gyprock cornice installation

Once walls and ceiling are in place, your handyman will install gyprock cornices to neatly mask the joins. They’ll measure each room along the top of the wall, from corner to corner, to determine the length of each cornice piece. They’ll mark each cornice and cut it to size, using a mitre box to get the right angles for each end. Next, they’ll line up each cornice, checking that the lengths and angles are correct, before applying adhesive and lightly securing them in place with nails. Your installer will apply cornice cement to the corner points where two cornice pieces join and any other gaps. They’ll use a damp sponge to clean off excess cement. After setting to dry for a couple of hours, your handyman will carefully remove the nails and fill holes with more cement, cleaning the area and sanding once dry.


Gyprock repair

Gyprock can wear down over time and is prone to scratches, dents, and holes from everyday use, whether you have active children or need to move around furniture. It’s important to get gyprock wall repairs sorted sooner rather than later so that problems don’t get worse over time. Your handyman will start the gyprock hole repair by cleaning the area and scraping out any excess plaster or debris that may have accumulated. The next step will depend on the size of the hole or issue. Holes bigger than 1cm that go all the way through will need a bridging material (like adhesive fibreglass mesh) installed. This will cover the hole, with a 2-3cm overhang. After applying the mesh, your handyman will apply a layer of fast-setting putty to cover the area. Once it’s dry, they’ll gently sand the area and repeat with a second layer of putty, before doing a final sanding.

Gyprock and plaster wall

$250

Mentone VIC, Australia

7th May 2020

I need my wall gyprocked/plastered. No need for painting or stud work as I can do that. But if the cornice needs any work then this will also need replacing. I had an old wall air-con unit and also a gas wall furnace which are being taken out this week and need someone to come in and either patch these holes well or alternatively to get a better finish gyprock entire wall potentially. Happy with whatever option is financially better but not at the detriment of a good finish The quote does not include any materials etc and I need someone to come in and sort it out either this coming Monday (11/5) or the Thursday (14/5) and friday (15/5). The wall dimensions are 3220 X 2440 Alternatively see pictured the two holes will be approx 750x600 (previous AC unit pictured left), and 2020 X 475 (wall heater pictured left) Let me know if you require any further information.

Plaster/Gyprock over a small opening above a door

$200

Hotham Hill, VIC

9th Nov 2016

I have a small opening at the top of the wall directly above a ground level bedroom door that requires closing in. The size is approximately 800 x 250mm but exact dimensions need to be confirmed. I would like to have a piece of sound proof insulation placed into the cavity and then have it Gyprocked in on both sides of the wall. This job is for a town house in North Melbourne. Access and parking is fairly easy. I have the sound proof insulation if you can provide the Gyprock sheeting.

Replace gyprock.

My kitchen splashback has had the tiles removed and the gyprock is not good enough to tile over. So I need the old removed and replaced with new. All rubbish to be removed. Splashback size is 5000x650

Repair hole and dents to gyprock walls. Dents are hard to see as the paint and paper face hasnt split. Sand to the point it can be painted by me afterwards. If patches need cutting for best repair allow for that. Quote required please. Happy for inspections to view the extent up close. Flexible on repair dates
