澳洲Australia property Interior rendering | Sydney
在澳大利亚 Ok, keen for some perspective on undermount vs drop in kitchen sinks. I know this topic has been discussed before, and in my view undermounts are a far superior result. However, is it worthwhile for an investment property, bearing in mind th ANZ have charged me a govt. mortgage registration fee of $115 for a refinance - borrowing additional funds for construction on a block of land in QLD already mortgaged with ANZ. There were NO mortgage documents to sign with the new loan docs
After just looking at Ace's interior rendering, I have a few queries for those out there familiar with this process.
I'm about to acquire an 80's style full brick ground level unit, with virgin brick walls in every room (blonde) except the bathroom.
The quick and cheapest solution would be to simply paint them all a neutral colour, but I'm now curious about the rendering option. I realise its a messy process but the unit has newish carpet (which I'd like to keep) so that could be a problem.
A relative suggested getting the walls bagged. However, for a smooth finish, I know that rendering would look far superior. Does anyone have any idea how long something like this would take and about how much it would cost? The unit is around 98sqm, has 2 bedrooms and a combined living/dining/kitchen area.
Appreciate any advice
I chatted with a neighbour who just had her whole house bagged. It cost her 3K. She said she got quotes for rendering around the 8K mark.
I rendered the inside as practice for when we do the outside...
It took me a good couple of days. First I had to lay bricks in the hole where the unit went through to the front (and let that dry for a few days). Then I put on the first coat of render (and let that dry for a few days). Then I put on a second coat of render (and let...). Repeat.
You might not need more than one coat, but I didn't want to put on more than 1cm at a time because I didn't think it would hold, and I had to build up some areas a lot.
To preserve the carpet, how about just gluing gyprock to the bricks
RossV beat me to it. If you want, strap and line. Ths is nail strips of timber to the bricks and then affix the plasterboard to the strips. Otherwise just glue the plasterboard to the bricks.
Then get a stopper in as the finish is important. Total cost should be under $15 per sqm, depending on how much you do yourself. This is cheaper than solid plaster (render) as the interior finish must be very good as it is on show under lights.
Thanks for that Ross and RV.
Pardon my ignorance but what is a stopper?
Also, what happens with the cornice? I'm assuming I would need to rip that off and have it replaced over the new plasterboard?
And then put skirting board on too....... and have an electrician move the switches appropriately..
Ooooh, these jobs always turn out looking bigger than I anticipate!
Look forward to your replies fellas'....
A stopper would stop the gaps ( fill in the joins ). Cornice and skirting can be done by a pro or DIY with a good saw and construction adhesive. Switches would need packing out or be refitted, refitted may be easier option, remember to let the cables through before fixing your boards
great discussion . . . I would like to get an idea of the cost of gyprocking vs rendering a new block house internally.
No skirting boards or cornices, just the power points and light switches that'd need redoing.
I know gyprocking is quite a bit cheaper but I understand that rendered walls are more difficult for tennants to damage.
Also is rendered wall easier/cheaper to paint? or would it require more paint because it would be more absorbent than gyprock?
I have never liked gyprock much myself always having lived in houses double brick rendered both sides.
What are the benefits of gyprocking? I imagine gyprock in situations where there is no brick or block behind it in internal walls would be cheaper for moving walls. What else?
Well, gyprock hurts a lot less when you run into the wall
