Plasterboard services include wall & ceiling repair but can be applied to multiple areas, interior or exterior. Plasterboard is a modern and versatile material designed for creating ceilings and walls, either as a background for plastering or tiling.

Plasterboard can be damaged by condensation or water build-up, inside or outdoors. Water damaged plasterboard generally needs to be removed and replaced. Mould damage or potential for further mould is the biggest concern with flood or damp situations. Flood water or water spillage can also bring or create mould contamination. Water damaged or wetted plasterboard that is bowed or developing mould is a health hazard and should be replaced as soon as possible.

Water damaged plasterboard is difficult to see: 90% of the damage is often hidden from view. It is common for Insurers to brush over underlying problems, or for homeowners to miss water-damaged plasterboard issues– that unfortunately will come back to haunt you. If you’ve ever had undetected mould get out of hand, without your knowledge, you know what we are talking about.

If you are not sure, it is better to get an expert plasterer opinion. Paintworks & Plastering can provide a free estimate and show you if and where you have plasterboard damage in need of repair.
