Maranui Ave Apartment repair of extensive water damage
The central Auckland apartment at Maraunui Ave had suffered extensive damage due to a blocked gutter (caused by a tennis ball). PBF were asked to remove and replace around 42m2 of water damaged Gib board to walls and ceilings on two levels. Additional to this we recommended a further 35m2 be removed as more water damage became visible. After covering carpets with plastic dropsheets, our Auckland Gib Fixers removed the water damaged Gib board and disposed of this. Using electronic moisture testers we checked the remaining Gib and timber. As the substrate contained unacceptable levels of moisture we used dehumidifiers and driers until moisture content was reduced to acceptable levels. The drying process took about 10 days. After drying PBFS Auckland Gib Fixers replaced Gib board with new Gib. Existing surfaces where also prepared by our gib stoppers with oil based pigment sealers to ensure that plaster would adhere long term. Gib stopping was finished to level 4 specifications with some areas receiving an additional skim to achieve level 5 finish. We completed the job by removing the last of the rubbish and vacuuming the home ready for paintwork. Quality checks where done using halogen lights and natural light during several times of the day. Painting was completed to a great standard by our PBFS Auckland Painter team.
"Arjen and his team were contracted to supply fix stop and paint plasterboard in our new home. Additionally they where contracted for the exterior painting. We are extremely pleased with the attention to detail and the level achieved with the final product. PBFs commitment to satisfaction has been exceptional, as too often companies over promise and under deliver. I can say categorically say PBF (Arjen) have demonstrated a great commitment in achieving the highest standard. The extent of the guarantee from PBF is also distinguishing feature in the market place. This provides my family with great comfort. For the reasons of quality finish and commitment to satisfaction I have recommended PBF to family and friends. Chris Connor Greenlane"
