What is a Plasterer?
A plasterer is a tradesperson who works with all types of plasters, these are forming a plaster layer on an interior wall for sealing joints or fixing plaster decorative mouldings on ceilings or walls. For many centuries, the process of making plasterwork, called plastering, has been used in building construction although nowadays due to modern technology the process is much more cost-effective and thankfully time efficient.
Plasterers duties mainly include applying plaster to the walls and ceilings of the house to enhance the look and appearance. This can also be for acoustic and thermal purposes. Some work descriptions include:
Everything you need to know about what a plasterer does:
Drywall is usually known as plasterboard overseas and often referred to in Australia as Gyprock® and is used in homes, offices and retail spaces for walls and ceilings.
Your Plastering Guy can advise you on the right type of plasterboard material to suit your needs and provide the necessary materials and plaster to suit your environment perfectly.
This is a great way to add beauty and character to your house for a very reasonable price as most plaster mouldings are very cost-effective due to the price of raw materials and optimised manufacturing process.
Plasterers can advise on a suitable design and finish to suit your needs then apply the plaster using plaster moulds to the wall or ceiling.
This technique involves plastering onto a solid wall, such as a brick or solid plaster wall.
They will level, clean and prepare the surface in this way then mix and apply plaster before adding the final finishing coats.
If you want more space or want to add privacy to a room in a fast cost-effective manner partitioning is the ideal solution as it can be used to temporarily or permanently divide room space.
Partition materials can be plasterboard or Gyprock, plywood, aluminium, timber or even PVC & glass materials.
When your plaster becomes impacted by storm damage, general wear and tear, cracks, ceiling sag, mould from water damage or even a cricket ball punching a hole through the wall it could be time to hire a professional to take a look for advice. In some cases, if left unchecked, damaged or fatigued plasterboard could not only cause further damage, but also serious injury to occupants from collapse.
Generally, a Lime or Gypsum mixture with sand and water are the compounds that make up the plaster. After mixing into a paste it can be used inside other composites to form a hard rigid panel for fixing onto many different structural materials such as steel or timber frames to hold it into position. Plaster is not a load-bearing material apart from holding its own weight.
Types of plastering include: * solid (wet) plastering * hard plastering * home restoration * cornice moulding * lathe and plaster * ornamental plastering
Ornamental plastering is the use of plastering to create decorative effects such as leaves, vines, flowers and even complete designs.
Gyprock® is a registered brand name that is Plasterboard and designed specifically for inclusion in the building process. Its versatility is uncompromised for interior lining and is the preferred choice of most home builders today.
We should also note that Plasterers should be hired for its installation to ensure a blemish-free professional finish as this material will be the most visually prominent internally on your chosen indoor environment.
The sheets must be installed horizontally across wall stud and ceiling joists using stud glue and plasterboard screws ensuring maximum adhesion and stability.
Gyprock® Plasterboard is made using machines to apply a compressed cardboard type layer encasing the gypsum core within.
There are also many different types of plasterboards depending on environmental conditions the material will be subjected to.
Plasterers will work out their price based on the area, with plasterboard sheeting costing between $45 and $90 per square meter including jointing and sanding ready for paint.
The price varies due to material types, mobility issues and sometimes distance from the installer’s place of business.
Removal of existing plasterboard or other types of wall and ceiling panelling is extra.
You can also consider installing insulation in some cases before installation of plasterboard by your chosen plasterer in Wagga Wagga and surrounds.
