Your plaster repair person will usually bring their own tools and equipment (including ladders, putty knives, safety gear, and more). You’ll likely need to supply the putty and/or replacement plasterboard, but your repairer will confirm this with you before they get started.
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.
