If you own a plaster house or building you will know that, like anything else, it requires maintenance. Sometimes this is as simple as cleaning and repainting the plaster cladding, but sometimes it takes a bit more work when the plaster system becomes compromised.
This can happen when your building shifts and the plaster cladding cracks under stress; something smashes into the wall and breaks the cladding; or water gets in and damages the substrate or plaster, to name a few. While these are not necessarily serious issues, they need to be fixed by a professional to insure a proper and lasting fix. This is imperative for the weather tightness and integrity of the building. It is also important to get these issues fixed in a timely manner so that they don’t end up causing more problems with the building, such as water damage or pest infestations.
Some of our common repairs include:
● Crack Repairs
● Damaged plaster (ie garage wall bumped into by a car)
● Modifications made to building (ie new window installation)
Whether it be fixing cracks, repairing damaged plaster or fixing the substrate as well, we are equipped with modern technologies and techniques to remedy the problem. Our plastering team has experience with current plastering systems as well as older systems, which allows us to match textures and integrate new plaster into the old skillfully.
Our process starts with assessing the damage/work required. From here we come up with a solution. Once agreed upon, we begin by completing any work to the substrate that is required, then move onto the structural aspects of the plaster. Finally we complete the repair by matching the texture of the existing plaster, sealing, and painting (as required) it.
Our workmanship carries a 10 year warranty.
Leaky Home Plaster Repair Auckland
Cracks in plaster clad houses are a very common problem in New Zealand. Whether it be from settling of the building or faulty materials used, cracks can create a big issue if not repaired properly. At Elite Exteriors we have decades of experience in crack repairs for plaster and textured houses.
If a crack is left untreated, this poses a large threat to the integrity of the building. This affects the water-tight capacity of the house, which can eventually lead to the deterioration of the structural components of the building.
Other fixes such as filling a crack up with regular plaster or silicone sealant may seem simple but are actually the wrong way of dealing with the problem and only provide a very temporary solution.. In the event of a crack, they must be properly fixed – that is with experienced professionals and quality materials. We offer durable repairs with beautifully matched (to existing) finishes or textures. This is a key aspect of maintaining exterior plaster cladding and having a weather-tight house or building.
