Note that glancing light is a condition that exists when light hits the gyprock plasterboard surface at certain angles and casts shadows that can highlight surface irregularities, which is inevitable. The good news is our plasterer applies (at discretion) a level 5 finish during installation, your paint choices can alter the effects of glancing light.

Water damaged gyprock ceiling repairs

Have you noticed discoloration or mould on your walls or ceiling? Do you have water damage and are unsure what to do? 

 

Water damage, often caused by unknown leaks from a roof or internal pipes, is typically found in and around wet areas like the bathroom, Kitchen, or laundry spaces. This build-up of water and moisture causes the gyprock plasterboard to become waterlogged, which creates a breeding ground for mould and poses health risks. It is always best to have your water-damaged walls or ceiling repaired as soon as possible, as leaving it for too long could lead to higher repair costs or even larger areas needing replacement.

Repairing the Ceiling

As per USG boral Installation Manual (Oct 2016)

 

- "Stud adhesive does not constitute a fixing system on its own and must be used in conjunction with screws or nails".

- "Stud adhesive daubs should be approx

25mm diameter x 15mm high".

- "Do not use adhesive at sheet ends".

- "Keep daubs 200mm (nom) from sheet edges".

- "Keep daubs 200mm (nom) from screw points".

- "It is recommended that at sheet ends screws are spaced at 300mm maximum centres for cornices and 150mm maximum centres for square set finish".

As per USG Boral installation guide there are three methods. 

 

1/3 Fixing Method 

"Space fasteners at 1/3 points across the width of the sheet and daubs half way between fasteners".

Conventional Method

"Use double fasteners 50-75mm apart along the sheet centreline and space daubs between the fasteners at 230mm maximum centres".  

- This Method has been seen many times and does (in our opinion) fail too often and cause bowing of the Ceiling sheets over time.

Fixing with Screws only (our preferred choice) 

"Space screws at maximum 300mm centres across the width of the sheet".

Option 1 – Complete Ceiling Replacement

This approach is necessary when the gyprock plasterboard sheet/s have become too warped or bowed due to the length of time the sheet/s have become distorted. If the area is left unattended, there is a risk the whole ceiling could collapse.

  • The existing gyprock plasterboard sheets and any cornice are removed before the supply and installation of new gyprock sheets.

  • Additional repairs may be needed if there are signs of damage.

  • New cornice to be added as well as any additional battens added if it is not spaced out to the correct spacing requirements.

Option 2 – Minor Repairs 

 

Firstly, it is important to identify the cause of the sagging. In many cases, the sagging is due to inadequate fixing of the gyprock to the timber joists/battens. In some instances, the sagging plasterboard areas can be reattached to the ceiling timber joists with additional scews. It is easy to place new screws into the boards and reattach them securely to the existing timber joists/battens.Minor repairs for a gyprock sagging ceiling can be relatively straightforward.

 

Using the "Fixing screws only" method by screwing the sheets at 300mm intervals will pull the plasterboard back up, securely fixing the ceiling sheets to the timber battens. The screws are then coated with plasterboard compound, areas are sanded and the ceiling can be re-painted - at the homeowners discretion
