SAGGING CEILINGS

Ceiling sagging is common in older homes throughout Perth. Over time, plaster glass ceilings seperate from the timber beams. We specialise in re-strapping and rectification to ensure you ceiling doesn’t collapse.

SAGGING CEILINGS PERTH

Until the early 1990’s, a large proportion of Perth homes used plaster glass for ceilings. These ceilings were fixed to the timber joists through the use of saddle straps. Over time, these straps broke, stretched and failed. This led to ceiling sagging where the ceiling separated from the timber joists.
 
Ceiling sagging is not exclusive to older homes. Gyprock ceilings can still experience sagging for a variety of reasons. This can include old insulation or not enough fixings to the timber joists.

How we repair sagging ceilings

  • Remove Old Insulation

Excess weight is often a cause of ceiling sagging. Old insulation products can be too heavy for the ceiling. We recommend removing the old insulation and replacing with modern insulation products that don’t put pressure on the ceiling.

  • Ceiling Restrapping

As the straps are broken and stretched, we recommend adding more straps to prevent further sagging. These are installed every 400mm – 600mm to ensure the ceiling is adequately fixed to the timber joists.

Our ceiling had been starting to show signs of sagging. We got Michael and Nathan in to remove all the old insulation and restrap the ceiling. Very happy with the work and glad we wont have any further issues. We're going to get Insulguard back before the summer to install some new insulation once our electrician has been. Thanks, Abdul

Would happily recommend Michael to anyone who has any old insulation and ceiling damage. Boys were tidy, polite and got everything done with minimum fuss.
