  • Garage ceiling collapsing! - help needed please.

    Heya,

    Looks like more work needs to be done here, returned home after a few months and just noticed the ceiling in the garage is slowly collapsing.
    Can someone work out how much work and cost would be involved to get it repaired? If YOU are in such business and could possibly come around and have a look i would appreciate, i live in Balga.
    I generally do jobs around the house myself but this i think needs to be done by a professional?







    Thanks

    I have some acrows you can borrow to hold it back in place, then you will need ceiling adhesive, ceiling screws, ceiling topping and paint. Or just the acrows to hold up the sheets while the builder of what looks like a new house comes over to fix whatever he overlooked. I would have a look at the rest of the house as well to make sure the same thing isn't getting set to happen there.

    Edit - I had to re-do our entire house shortly after we moved in, but the building was 20 years at that point. It's easy enough to do yourself, but sanding the topping before painting is messy.

            Going through this at our place at the moment. 30 years old.

            Grab the Acrows and some board to hold it up.

            If it ain't under warranty, you can locate the battens in the ceiling with a stud finder or by spotting the existing screws (if they've used them - are there holes where the screws have pulled through?), buy a bunch of trumpet headed screws from Bunnings and belt them in pairs, 50mm apart and offset one either side of the batten's centre line, about 300mm between pairs.

            Screw heads need to be just a touch deeper than flush with the ceiling.

            Wipe over 'em with plaster repair, sand and paint. Done.

              This.

              Also just a common sense note, that you should acrow them in a spot where the joists are, otherwise you may find you will acrow straight through the gyprock and be up for more repairs...

                Also, do use an acrow to prop up a piece of board which will distribute the force across an area, otherwise the acrow head will just bash a hole through it anyway.

                  Got the same issue in our 12 year old house; garage ceiling & master bedroom. I think it's just builders cheaping out on adhesive, but it's fkn annoying.

                    One thing I was told when I had similar work done was to check above the plaster and see if any insulation is clear of the battens (unlikely in a garage area though).

                      Depending on the age of the house (looks modern-ish with florentine bricks and gyprock in garage) then there is most likely insulation above.

                        Thanks for posting this, I'll give him a call. Need a fairly large chunk of a patio ceiling replaced and having a prick of a time finding somebody to take money off me for it.

                          He's in Sawyers Valley so will be close if your still in Mundaring,

                          he's not cheap but the job is done with minimum of fuss and mess and you wont feel raped or violated after he has gone,

                          its probably why he's always busy and has work?

                              Gyprock is just paper on both sides and doesn't like to get wet, if it does then it fucks up quick and will spend the next few years getting worse and worse, the old plaster ceilings still hold up better than gyprock and repairs better and you can plaster strap it again just like new. I see lots of people plaster strap gyprock for repairs but it doesn't work well. If its water damaged its better to replace any effected sheets with new ones. That's the good bit about gyprock is that its cheap and easy to work with.
