What does a plaster repair service include?

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:


Hole 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. 


Plaster crack repairs

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.


Cornice repairs
Cornice repairs can be a complex process, depending on whether you have simple, curved cornices or complex, ornate cornices. If it’s a straightforward repair to fix a crack or hole, your repair person may simply use plaster filler and smooth this into the surface using a putty knife before sanding. However, ornate cornices can require more work to ensure the shape or pattern is maintained in the repair. This will often involve using a chisel to carefully shape the repair work. Alternatively, your cornices may have just lifted away from the ceiling or wall. In that case, your repair person may be able to patch up the gap using filler.
