Our Plastering Services Includes

Local Plasterer offers a comprehensive range of professional plastering services in Ballarat, including:

Plasterboard Installation

Our expert plasterers can install plasterboard walls and ceilings for your new home build, extension, renovation or commercial project. Also known as drywall or gyprock, plasterboard provides a smooth, even surface ready for painting, wallpapering or other finishes. We can supply and install standard and specialty plasterboards to suit your needs and budget, including fire-rated, sound-insulated, moisture-resistant and flexible plasterboard.

Plasterboard Repair

Damaged, cracked or holed plasterboard walls and ceilings look unsightly and can lead to further issues if not repaired promptly. Local Plasterer provides fast, efficient plasterboard repairs to restore your walls and ceilings to like-new condition. We can patch small holes, fill cracks, replace damaged sections of plasterboard, and re-tape and re-plaster joints for a seamless finish.


Cement rendering is a popular choice to enhance the exterior of brick, concrete block or stone homes and buildings. A rendered finish not only looks great, but also protects the underlying surface from the elements. Local Plasterer are rendering specialists, with expertise in all types of render including traditional sand and cement, acrylic, pre-mixed, and textured finishes. We can match any render style to complement your property.

Solid Plastering

For a premium, durable finish for interior walls, you can’t beat traditional solid plastering, also known as wet plastering. This technique involves applying a 10-12mm thick layer of plaster over brickwork, concrete or blueboard to create a hard, smooth surface. Solid plastering allows for decorative details and curves not possible with standard plasterboard. Local Plasterer are skilled in solid plastering for both modern and heritage homes.

Ornamental Plastering

Add a touch of elegance and character to your home with decorative ornamental plastering. Our artisan plasterers can create beautiful ornate ceilings, cornices, ceiling roses, corbels, arches and other architectural features to enhance your interior design. We specialize in period-style ornamental plastering to restore or recreate the charm of heritage homes. Local Plasterer uses traditional fibrous plaster and modern plaster products for intricate detailing and durability.

Cornice Installation

Cornices are the decorative moulding that covers the join between walls and ceilings. Available in a range of classic and contemporary profiles, cornices provide an elegant finishing touch to any room. Local Plasterer installs plaster cornices with precision for a flawless result. We can match your existing cornices for a seamless extension or help you choose the perfect style for your home.

Plaster Coving

Coved ceilings, where the ceiling curves gently to meet the wall, are a stunning architectural feature that can make a room feel more spacious and luxurious. Local Plasterer specializes in the installation of plaster coving, also known as vaulting. Our skilled plasterers can create beautiful bespoke coving to suit any room size or style, from subtle to dramatic.

Venetian Polished Plaster

For a truly luxurious, high-end wall finish, consider Venetian polished plaster. This ancient Italian technique involves applying thin layers of tinted lime plaster, which are then burnished to a smooth, marble-like sheen. Local Plasterer are trained in the art of Venetian polished plaster, using authentic materials and methods to achieve a stunning, unique result. Ideal for feature walls or entire rooms.

Plaster Repairs

As well as repairing damaged plasterboard, Local Plasterer can restore and repair all kinds of plaster surfaces and features. We have experience repairing heritage lath and plaster walls, ornate ceilings, cornices, ceiling roses and archways. Our team can match the original style and materials for a sympathetic repair that blends seamlessly. We also repair newer solid plaster and rendered walls.

Frequently Asked Questions

The cost of plastering depends on the size and complexity of the job, the type of plastering required, and the condition of the existing surface. As a rough guide, expect to pay around $20-$50 per square meter for standard plasterboard installation, $30-$70 per square meter for rendering, and $80-$200 per square meter for solid plastering.

The time required for your plastering job will depend on the size of the area, the type of plastering, the amount of preparation needed, and whether it is a new installation or a repair. A small plasterboard repair may only take a few hours, while plastering a whole house could take several weeks. Weather conditions can also impact the drying time for exterior rendering. Local Plasterer will give you an estimated timeline before starting the job.

Before Local Plasterer arrives to start work, you may need to clear the area of furniture and belongings, and cover floors with drop sheets. If we are installing plasterboard, the room will need to be empty and any electrical or plumbing work completed first. For exterior rendering, you’ll need to clear access to the walls and remove any obstacles like pot plants. Our friendly team can advise you on how to prepare for your specific plastering job.

Correctly installed and finished plaster should be durable and low maintenance. To keep your plaster walls and ceilings looking their best, dust and vacuum regularly, and wipe any marks with a soft damp cloth. Avoid pushing furniture directly against the walls. If your plaster does get chipped or damaged, contact Local Plasterer for a professional repair to prevent the damage from getting worse.
