Garage Ceiling Repairs and Replacement South Melbourne
Most garage ceilings are not built to Australian Building Standards and need to be replaced every 10/ 15 years. Just Plaster provides garage ceiling replacements according to Australian standards along with product warranties for that extra peace of mind. We take care of the entire building process from demolition, electrical, framing, plastering and painting. Having replaced hundreds of garage ceilings over the past 20 years, we are the garage ceiling replacement specialists in South Melbourne.
Unfortunately, when it comes to the build, garage ceilings are the most neglected space of a home; they also take the most wear and tear. Many builders like to cut corners when it comes to garage ceilings, using the bare minimum product, the cheapest product and whatever is left over at the end of the build.
We find many different issues with garage ceilings. Often the ceiling joists are too far apart, not enough glue applied or applied in the wrong position. We find screws missing or incorrectly positioned, batten’s missing, cut or damaged – even the wrong type plaster used. The list does go on.
In most cases, if your garage ceiling has dropped or partially dropped – a full demolition and replacement is required. To save on costs to you, we usually work around the lighting and tend to leave the garage door/ motor intact – if required, we can remove and reinstate the garage door at an extra cost. Our service manages the entire process of the garage ceiling replacement and installation of new from start to finish – handing over your brand new ceiling in around 2 – 3 working days.
