FAQ

These are some of the most common questions we are asked.  Hopefully, your question will be answered here, but if not please don't hesitate to call, email or message us.

 

I have a few small holes in the walls.  Do you do small patch-ups?

Yes, we do repair small damaged areas.  Walls and archways in high-traffic areas of homes or businesses (or children's bedrooms!) can show wear and tear over time.  Plastered areas can also sustain cracks, water damage, furniture damage etc.  Warragul Plastering & Rendering can make the damaged plaster in your home or business look new again! Call, email, or message us via our contact page to discuss your options further and/or arrange a free onsite quote.

 

 Can I email photos of holes in the walls or areas that I would like a quote for?

Yes, you can. However any quote given before an onsite consultation is made is subject to change as there are sometimes factors that affect the plastering requirements that clients may overlook or not be aware of.  Call, email, or message us via our contact page to discuss your options further and/or arrange a free onsite quote.

 Can I email house plans for my new home or extension that I would like a quote for?

Yes, you can.  Many builders, owner-builders and home owners choose to email floor plans as it is a fast and reliable way to communicate their plastering needs.  It is important that the plans sent contain measurements.  You will also need to indicate where specific kinds of plasterboard is required (i.e water/fire resistant/villaboard etc) so that an accurate quote can be provided.  It is also important to mention the cornice preference, both size and style.  If the cornice has not yet been decided upon, an initial quote can be provided that excludes the cornice until a decision has been made.

 

I have dado/timber paneling and  I would like it removed.  Do I need to remove it myself, or arrange for someone else to remove it, or are you able to remove it for me before plastering the wall?

Yes, we are able to remove timber paneling prior to plastering.  Call, email, or message us via our contact page to discuss your options further and/or arrange a free onsite quote.

  

I have a home that was built in the early 1900's.  The cornice and ceiling roses are decorative and there are small areas of damage.  I'm not sure if the design is still available, what are my options?

The staff at plasterboard supply stores should be able to help you determine whether the particular designs are still available.  If the designs are no longer manufactured, most plasterboard supply stores have a range of information available to help you choose a new design, or alternatively, you could search online for plaster and cornice manufacturers in Australia, such as Boral, as they generally have photo galleries of all the designs they manufacture.

Depending on the size of the damaged areas and the extent of the damage, Andrew is often able to utilities his skills to reproduce sections of discontinued cornice by hand to match the existing design, however this depends on a range of factors.  Call, email, or message us via our contact page to discuss your options further and/or arrange a free onsite quote. 

 

 

We have some plaster damage that is covered by insurance.  Are you able to help with this process?

Yes we are.   As soon as you know what your insurance company requires, we can help and we are happy to communicate directly with the insurance company if required.  Call, email, or message us via our contact page to discuss your options further and/or arrange a free onsite quote.
