General Information

When finished, does the ceiling still have a little bit of texture?

No. Your ceiling will be perfectly smooth with no texture variation. It will look similar to a standard plasterboard (Gyprock) ceiling but only better. (No ugly joints at night time when you turn the lights on) . All those bumps will be hidden forever!

 

Someone told me that it will fall off, is this true?

No! Builders often advise clients against rendering or skiming over textured ceilings as they can delaminate over time resulting in costly repairs. VermicuHIDE ® is NOT the same as Rendering or skimming over textured ceilings. It has been carefully designed and tested to be a permanent solution, which is why we give a lifetime warranty! When you are getting quotes, whatever solution you are considering, ask what warranty they are willing to provide and if they will match our lifetime warranty! (Get it in writing)

 

Why should I choose Ceiling Resurfacing Australia if I want smooth ceilings?

Ceiling Resurfacing Australia are Australia's texture removal specialists! No one else can offer a solution that makes your home feel bigger while giving you the confidence of Australia's only lifetime warranty for vermiculite ceiling removal. Ceiling Resurfacing Australia offers the best finish of any possible solution and eliminates many of the problems that other solutions often encounter. Don't risk it- do it properly the first time!

 

How smooth is it really? How does it compare to a Gyprock ceiling?

It doesn't compare - it is much better! We have clients who have removed walls at a later time after having their ceilings resurfaced. They have called up back to continue our process over the existing Gyprock ceilings as they don't compare to the resurfaced finish. A resurfaced ceiling is smoother than a Gyprock ceiling and has no variations because of the plastered joints and screw holes. Our resurfaced ceilings are an industry high Level 5 finish AS/NZS 2589. A plasterboard ceiling in Australia is typicaly only finished to a Level 4 finish. You would likely need to spend thousands of dollars more to acheive a level 5 finish over a plasterboard ceiling.

 

Do you resurface other textured ceilings like stucco or stipple?

Yes. We can resurface most textured surfaces. Our trademarked VermicuHIDE ® system takes advantage of the texture to hide imperfections on the surface below.

 

How much does it cost?

Generally the cost is similar to a false ceiling installation. Costs for false ceilings can vary significanly depending on the experience of the contractor and the quality of their workmanship, but generally you get what you pay for. The finish acheived with a resurfaced ceiling is an industry high Level 5 finish (AS/NZS 2589), which is highest quality acheivable according to AS/NZS standards. A floating ceiling will only acheive a Level 4 surface unless you are prepared to spend thousands of dollars extra.

 

Do any other companies use the VermicuHIDE® resurfacing system?

No. VermicuHIDE ® is a propriety trademarked system exclusive to Ceiling Resurfacing Australia. It was designed specififally to address shortfalls in traditional options available in dealing with textured ceilings. We guarantee you can't get a better quality ceiling surface and offer the industry's only Lifetime warranty transforming vermiculite ceilings into a smooth surface.

 

How will it effect the sound rating if you resurface the ceilings?

Most sound transfer in concrete buildings travels through the structure itself, requiring a full sound rated ceiling system to make any noticeable effect. This would be very expensive and reduce the ceiling height even further. Although vermiculite ceilings do help to slightly dull sound transfer, generally they don't meet any particular "sound rating" as per building codes. Due to the unique process we use, a resurfaced ceiling won’t diminish any sound dulling properties inherent to vermiculite ceilings.

 

Do you repair textured ceilings keeping the texture?

No. Unfortunately, (or not) we are in the business of making texture disappear – not reappear! You’re best to try to find an “old school” painter/plasterer to attempt any repairs. Generally it is almost impossible to match texture and old texture colours. Once a textured ceiling has been resurfaced though, it is simple and cheap to repair any damage that may have occured - and you can use any plasterer/painter to do it.

 

Why haven’t I heard of this before?

After decades in the industry, we saw a need developing to provide better options for people wanting to modernise their textured ceilings. Other alternatives all have drawbacks so we spent years trialling and developing the VermicuHIDE resurfacing system. Our system is unique and not the same as “skimming” ceilings. We have created an exclusive, premium way of upgrading textured ceilings!
