Factors that Affect the Ceiling Replacement Cost
- When there is significant structural damage.
- Stains and watermarks.
- Cracks in the ceiling, especially desalinating cracks.
- Paint that is chipped, cracked or peeling.
- Sagging or bulging.
- Mould or unusual black marks.
- Plasterboard discolouration.
- Bubbling plaster ceilings.
- Heavy rainfall causes water to drip from your ceilings.
- The ridge tiles need to be repointed.
- There is deterioration or damage to the flashing around skylights.
- Misplaced or cracked tiles.
- A rusty roof or fixtures surrounded by rust.
So how do you avoid the expense and disruption involved with replacing your entire ceiling? You can mitigate the damage quickly and easily. If there is water leaking and causing your ceiling to bulge or sag (usually during a major weather event) then just poke a hole in the middle of the bulge and let the water fall into a bucket. That way only a section of the ceiling will need to be repaired, rather than replacing the entire thing.
Prevention is always better than the cure as well, so be sure to have regular inspections of your ceiling carried out by the professionals in Perth. Once every five years should be enough, but this might need to be more regular for older ceilings or ceilings with obvious wear and tear.
The Estimation of Water Damaged Ceiling Repair Cost
Having water damage in your ceiling can cause more significant damage than just black spots and mould. There are many causes of water damage in a home or business including inclement weather and internal leaks. It is vital that your ceiling is protected against all of these factors.
In the beginning, you will notice simple problems like discolouration, watermarks and minor stains. Some people think these can be simply painted over, but that does not address the heart of the problem.
A simple touch-up job involving patching and re-painting will only cost a few hundred dollars (depending on the circumstances), but having a thorough inspection carried out is vital.
If this water continues to build up it can cause sagging, which is even more expensive to repair. Left long enough, water build-up can destroy your entire ceiling, and your possessions and even impact the structure of your home.
A complete ceiling replacement is $5000 alone in most cases – and it can be higher. Don’t let it reach that point. If you notice any signs of water leaking, contact us for an inspection immediately.
How Much Is the Sagging Ceiling Repair Cost?
Sagging ceilings can be caused by different factors and this will influence the price of repairs. Many ceilings have been put together using the tried-and-test glue and screw method. So in many instances, this glue will lose efficacy over time and the ceiling will begin to sag.
This process is simple and affordable to fix, usually only costing $500 or less depending on the size of the ceiling and the extent of the sagging.
However, sagging is often caused by water leaking into your roof cavity. This could be an issue with your roof or an internal pipe, but either way, it needs to be addressed quickly.
The water can be drained from the sagging section and a patch-up job is completed, but the underlying cause of the leakage needs to be located. We can thoroughly investigate your ceiling, roof and cavity to locate where the leak is coming from.
If this issue is not addressed, the sagging will get worse and eventually it will burst, with rancid water falling onto your possessions. In worst-case scenarios, the entire ceiling can collapse.
Don’t risk a total replacement of your ceiling that may not be required. Protect yourself and your family by contacting us for an inspection and free, no-obligation quote.
Which Ceiling Types Do You Wish to Install?
1. Drop Ceilings
Drop ceilings are most commonly seen in businesses but you can find them in some homes as well, particularly in basements. A drop ceiling is formed by inserting a series of tiles into a frame below the piping, electrical wires, and insulation in the ceiling. Drop ceilings are relatively inexpensive, although they are also not the most attractive.
2. Drywall Ceilings
Drywall is the most common material for ceilings in Perth and creates a simple, smooth surface. Although not the least expensive option, drywall is still relatively inexpensive to install.
