Top Plaster Repair related questions

What are the signs my plaster needs a repair job?

The most common signs that your plaster needs repair include cracks, discolouration, dents, and holes.

Is plaster the same as plasterboard, gyprock, and drywall?

Technically speaking, yes. Plasterboard, gyprock, and drywall are all made from plaster and can be repaired by an experienced plaster repairer.

What are techniques are used to repair holes in plaster?

Depending on the size of the hole, your plaster repairer will use plaster filler, an adhesive mesh patch, and/or solid pieces of drywall.

What supplies will I need to prepare for my plaster repair?

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.

How long does plaster take to repair and dry?

This will depend on the depth of the hole, the area needing repair, and the number of coats needed. But it can take anywhere from a few hours to repair and up to 24 hours to dry.

How much does a plaster repair job cost?

A plaster repair job on Airtasker will usually cost between $102-$250 but this price can vary depending on the size of the damaged area and the time it takes to repair it.

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.

I have a wall where an object has come off and taken the paint with it! I suspect it needs plastering. I wondered if someone could come and fix this. It roughly measures 24cm x 11cm. I do not require it painting. It's in the hall way of my ground floor flat so will be able to ensure at least 2m and adhere to social distancing.
