Plaster repair services include everything needed to get your wall looking brand new again, whether it’s patching up a hole, covering a scratch, or replacing a section of the plaster. Your plaster repairer will bring their own supplies with them to complete the repair and clean up after themselves when they’re done. Here are some of the most common plaster repairs:
Plasterboard and gyprock hole repairs are among the most commonly requested plaster fixes. First, your plaster repair expert will need to prepare the damaged area to be repaired. They’ll lay down a plastic sheet on the ground to protect the flooring below before inspecting the damage. If there’s any loose or crumbling plaster, they’ll use a utility knife to scrape it away. They’ll always check for any hidden cables and pipes in your wall before making any cuts if they need to. Your repair person will then use an adhesive mesh patch to cover up the wall, allowing a couple of centimetres overhang on either side. Next, they’ll apply a quick-setting filler, using a putty knife to push it through the mesh and cover up any gaps. They’ll smooth this over before leaving it to dry. Then they’ll sand the area smooth. Your repairer may repeat this process and add an extra layer of putty if needed.
Small holes, dents, and cracks in plaster can be repaired using plaster filler to close up any gaps. Your repairer will wait for this to dry before applying a topcoat of compound. Once dry, they’ll blend this with the surrounding wall using sandpaper. It’ll be ready to paint around 24 hours later.

Seeking experience plasterer / tradesman to repair a cracked ceiling from water damage in a bathroom in Bendigo. Here are some details of the work: - the plaster has cracked as a result of rain leakage through the tiles - the tiles have since been repaired to avoid further rain damage - in the center of the ceiling is a combination heater / light. The cracks in the plaster radiate from the light fitting - there is one large crack, with with four to five cracks around it - I would estimate that the cracks are within a 100cm by 60cm area - will require a paint following repaid (current ceiling is white / off white - TBC) I can supply pictures via direct message. I can also cover expenses for some travel time to Bendigo. As it is an older property, with other maintenance needs, I'm interested in options to repair the area securely, as opposed to fully replacing the ceiling. The property is tenanted, so I would arrange access via the agent.
