Plasterboard Repair

Plasterboard is the most commonly used material for finishing the inside of houses in the UK. Whether it’s plastered or just taped up, it provides a really nice surface to paint and decorate to make your home look beautiful. Unfortunately though, it isn’t indestructable and can easily get damaged through various methods. The most common cause of plasterboard damage is through damp. Due to the porous nature of plasterboard it absorbs water until it is fully saturated. As more and more moisture is collected it balloons and it is very difficult to dry it out without staining and an obvious patch on your wall or ceiling where the plasterboard has warped.

Another common cause of damage on plasterboard is either deliberate or accidental from objects being bashed against the wall. This can be as simple as moving a large table or chairs through to somebody getting angry enough to throw something against the wall (or even punch a hole in it). All these things are very common but, luckily, they are relatively easy to fix with the right equipment and the right know-how!

Age, subsidence, incorrect application and various other factors can cause plasterwork to be damaged over time. This can leave very unsightly cracks and holes within your plasterwork which are very difficult for a DIY’er to repair. However, many people give repairing plasterwork a go and, with care and the right tools it certainly is a very accessible job to do yourself. It depends on the size of the hole or cracks as to whether it’s something you should try yourself. Also, whether the actual plasterboard is damaged so much that it needs replacing.

If plasterboard has got damp due to a burst pipe or overflowing bath or sink then it quite often requires cutting out and replacing and then re-plastering and re-painting in order to get an effective repair. However, if the plasterwork has just sustained a small hole or gouge, maybe due to someone punching a wall or being clumsy whilst carrying something heavy, then it is possible to buy pre-mixed plaster repair kits and have a go and repairing it yourself.
