Asbestos Textured Ceiling Removal Auckland, Waikato & Coromandel (Scroll down to Testimonials)

Large Commercial Texture Removal then skim & repaint

Textured ceilings had their day, but are now dated and often looking shabby. They can be removed cleanly and safely with no mess or fuss.

Our contractors over the years will have collectively done many more texture removals than any other company in NZ by far. At our peak in 2008, we had 14 crews removing textures when we exceeded 800 houses. This in most cases included not only removal but ceiling repairs, plastering, pigment sealing and finally 2 top coats. We are fortunate that some of these experienced tradesmen are still available to carry out work sold by KTeam Ltd.

Why you should choose work sold by KTeam to renovate your ceilings

  1. Experienced contractors. Even though we recently shifted to marketing(as covered in "About Us") the coys we use will only be using one of the three A class supervisors that we have always used.
  2. Quality work by one of the three supervisors is assured. This group have been carrying out collectively working removing textured ceilings for over 50 years and so are all more than proven in their ability to provide a quality painted ceiling surface after removing the textured ceilings.
  3. Total safety. All the work areas are sheeted out to worksafe requirements and all the work is carried out inside that plastic enclosure, including the final skimming and painting(seal and 2 top coats) which will have had a clearance certificate including an airtest before the sheets are finally removed and you can re-enter your rooms again. Not only is the texture safely removed as it is completely saturated before removal, but then the surface is then completely encapsulated by the skim and 3 paint coats. These procedures are not far removed from what we set up in conjunction with OSH 20 years ago and we called it the "Kowhai Removal System".
  4. Lucky Draw - This not only gives a bonus for the winner, but more importantly gives valuable feedback as to how the whole process was performed from a customer view point.
  5. Finally dealing with only one company who do the whole job including repairs if needed plus skimming and repainting the ceilings to a quality finish. Many asbestos companies do not have the skills available to carry out our system to replace the texture and instead offer a "cut and drop" method of removal, which can unearth other problems to deal with. For lived in houses, the ceilings can be transformed to a very high standard as born out with so many satisfied customes, you do not need to find the various Trades required to complete a "cut and drop". Once the sheets are pulled down your job is finished as a quality job, you will be amazed at the transformation and many clients report back that they wish they had got rid of the textures earlier.

Plaster skimming ceilings for quality finish.

Scraping off texture

Texture ceilings without asbestos

The fact is there are a lot less textured ceilings to remove now (most having already been removed), and those applied after 1983 do not have asbestos in them anyway. The good news is the cost to remove these is substantially less than those with asbestos.

Painting the rest of the interior after your texture has been removed

Often after the ceiling texture has been removed and repainted it is your plan to repaint some or all of the interior. Some of out team are qualified painters that can as well as paint also carry out any wallpaper removal or plastering if required.

“Wow & Thank - you. What a surprise it was to get the phone call informing me that I was the winner of the January February cashback from the K Team. In December 2015 I was needing some work done at my house as it was going to auction early in 2016. the ceilings were very old, discoloured and cracked. The walls were needing attention. I called the KTeam …. Who put me through to Lance. Lance came and did a very thorough measuring of the house and before he left I had the paperwork telling me what the costs would be. Very efficient. Neru is a great worker. The work he has done on the ceiling and walls have made a remarkable transformation to the whole house. Thanks Lance and Neru.”
