Look no further than Just Plaster for your next garage ceiling repair. We take care of the entire process from demolition, to electrical, to installation and even offer a painting service for garage ceiling repairs. We have done hundreds of garage ceilings in Melbourne over the past 15 years and that’s why we know specialise in the field. Unfortunately, Garage ceilings are the most neglected when it comes to new builds, hence the reason they are lucky to last between 5 – 10 years at the most. It seems the builders like to cut corners, using the bare minimum effort and all the leftover materials for garage ceilings.
When we remove old garage ceilings, we often find the ceiling joists are too far spread, not enough glue or screws were used, battens mostly used, screw and glue spacing not to Australian standards, wrong sheet sizes and the list goes on. In most cases where your garage ceiling has dropped or needs repair a full demolition and installation needs to occur. To save on extra costs we can at times work around the low volt lighting and we tend to leave the garage door motor intact and work around it. As part of our service we will manage your garage ceiling repair adn installation from start to finish – handing over your new ceiling in around 3 working days.
