Ceiling Repair

This living room ceiling had extensive water damage and required removal of very old plaster. It was replaced with Gyprock and re- plastered ready for painting.

Below right you can see the ceiling in its original state (once the damaged plaster had been removed).

Restoration of an early 1920's water-damaged ceiling

The condition of the ceiling in this 19th century terrace was quite poor, due to earlier tenants, not taking care of the home.

Restoration is certainly something I really enjoy, as I believe our older homes are well worth preserving for the future. The ceiling was cracking and peeling quite severely (represented in the photos below). Special plastering and sealing techniques were used, to ensure plaster and paint would not peel or flake off in the future.

 

The final result, painted using non-toxic paint for children who suffer severe allergies.

The ceiling had been mould affected due to lack of ventilation in this bathroom.

 

A new light and fan had been installed and the ceiling required cleaning, blocking out stains and painting.

Whilst inspecting a leak, the client had accidentally put his foot through the living room ceiling..

I restored this by using some of the fragments and carving the remainder. The client wished to paint the ceiling himself (hence it appears a little darker in colour as it was still damp).

The ceiling had been damaged by a leaking roof. There were water stains and some holes which required plastering.

 

The ceiling was then sealed and had 2 coats of paint.

Over time this ceiling deteriorated. The paint had mainly cracked and required sealing, plastering, priming and painting.

A client contacted me and said he had large damage on his ceiling due to water leakage. Originally he wanted to change the whole ceiling, however, this was not necessary as it could be patched up and re-painted.

The insurance company had sent some people in to temporarily fix it. The damage is shown below.

A body corporate contacted me as there was water damage in a bathroom form the bursting of water pipes above. All damaged plasterboard was removed & replaced with new gyprock. As you can see in the photograph, the joins are seamless.

This ceiling had been severely water damaged during heavy storms.

 

In addition, there were cracks in the wall from a previous drought.

All cracks were removed and re-plastered. The stains were also addressed.

 

The job was completed to a stage where the painters could now come in to finish the work.

Mould Removal & Paint Ceiling

This ceiling was badly affected by mould due to moisture in the above cavity between the roof and ceiling.

 

Consequently this was fixed. I cleaned the ceiling with the appropriate treatment, primed and then painted.
