Outdoor Ceiling Repairs
Below is an example of outdoor ceiling repairs. Flat roof ceilings are very
susceptible to water damage as the flat roof may allow water ingress due to poor drainage. In this instance, we fixed leaking roof and removed the damaged ceiling, followed by a final leak detection test.
Leak Detection Testing is of upmost importance in identifying source of ceiling damage. We carry testing upon both commencement and completion of works to ensure damage will not reoccur.

‘Thinking Outside of the Box’ for Ceiling Repairs Perth
We are staunch advocates of installing ceilings to current AS/NZS Standards, they are in place for a reason.
However, when attending to ceiling repair works across Perth, we encounter various issues in which AS/NZS Standards are not suitable for effectively resolving issue.
Installation Standards are (or should be) applied when installing ceilings from afresh, minimising any future ceiling issues.
However, when working retrospectively on a repair, there may be various reasons why Standards cannot be applied. I.e. minimising disruption in an elderly customer’s home, re-engineering solutions for ceilings throughout a property which have not been installed to Standard but customer does not want ceilings replaced, whilst there is insufficient crawl space etc.
Many ceiling fixes we carry out require ‘outside of the box’ thinking, using proven methods and techniques learnt from years of previous on-the-job experience.
Why Choose Us?
The above methods and techniques include the careful selection of adhesives and fixings suitable for varied ceiling materials, conditions and roof structures. The same also extends to the careful selection of equipment used on different jobs, accounting for height and accessibility of ceiling works.
For example, plaster glass ceilings are generally higher than Gyprock ceilings (Standard Australian ceiling heights are 2.4 m, 2.55 m, 2.7 m or 3 m). Also, type of elevated work platform, from versatile stool, to ladder, to high ladders, to scaffold. All of which affect the time it takes to complete works.
Furthermore, our in-depth understanding of ceilings and the various materials involved comes from our lengthy experience working with ceiling insulation products.
This includes our familiarity with old insulation products i.e. cellulose (blow-in) insulation, commonly found in many Perth homes.
Older insulation products exert too much pressure on both Gyprock and plaster glass ceilings. This is due to the former ‘blow-in’ installation process which was unregulated 20-30 years ago, resulting in overweight material sitting on the ceiling.
Cellulose can also present issues when sitting in-between a sagging ceiling and joist and hindering ceiling lifts. Plaster glass ceilings should not be re-strapped whilst harboring cellulose insulation, dust and debris. Surfaces must be clean in order for ceiling straps to effectively adhere. Cellulose also absorbs moisture over time (becoming heavier), especially when exposed to water ingress or a poorly ventilated roof space.
