Build a Stud Partition Wall

Stud partitions or stud walls are one of the cheapest and quickest ways  of building internal walls. Note this are non load bearing walls.

Looking to fit out an office or divide rooms in existing or new home. Stud walls are the main method of achieving this. Usually use of timber 4×2 or 4×3 is used for the frame and plasterboard is then screw fixed onto the studs. Metal studs can also be used.

12.5mm plain slab plasterboard is ideal for this job. There is also slabs that could be used along with insulation depending on the use of the space.

For additional storage space for materials within an office a simple plain slab on stud work is quick and quick. Install a frame and a standard door to complete the storage area.

Allowable Property maintenance tax deductions

Landlords often mention that most of their rental income is actually paid in taxes. What are your options to both improve your property and limit your tax bill?

All work done by Robust Property maintenance can be deducted from your rental income tax bill. You can write off Robust’s invoiced cost as an expense. This is subject to some rules of course but basically all our services would be considered allowable deductions.

This is what Revenue say are allowable deductions from rental income in regards property maintenance expenditure deductions:
• maintenance of the property, e.g. cleaning and general servicing, exterior and interior
painting and decorating,
• repairs, (a ‘repair’ means the restoration of an asset by replacing subsidiary parts of the
whole asset). Examples of common repairs which are normally deductible in computing
rental income include:
1. damp and rot treatment,
2. mending broken windows, doors, furniture and machines,
3. replacing roof slates.
