Plastering in Brisbane

Recommended Posts

Guest Jonowatson

Hi everyone,

I'm hoping to emigrate to Brisbane about September Tim we've just been allocated a case officer so only medicals and police checks to go ( touch wood they'll be fine).

Just wondered what the plastering situation is like around Brisbane I hear pretty busy. What are the wages like too.

Im thinking of bringing my tools with me is it worth it and what tools are best to bring.

I know these are alot of questions but it's a big move for me my wife and 2 young children

 

Thanks in advance

G'day

i if you are expecting to get to Brisbane and carry on plastering as you would in the uk then you gonna be disappointed as I was . You struggle to get the plaster as its all drywall here ! You not allowed to use scrim tape so paper tape is used and it's crap to use . You might get work rendering as that's popular here but beads are rarely used , in the uk you are spoiled with cheap materials but here it's all really expensive , I am just trying to start up my own plastering business using Knauf plaster but they is not much call for white set plastering as they call it . hope this hasn't put you off your plans ,

Although there is some work on the Gold Coast, that area has been a tough gig across a number of sectors for the last few years. He might have more luck if he looked further afield.
