WHERE TO BUY

DIY for a job well done

Inspiration can come in many forms; from renovating programs such as Channel 7’s House Rules, or the many Pinterest boards (check out ours at USG Boral Australia) but it’s important that you get the right products, tools and advice you need to achieve a job well done.

Our DIY range of products and tools are supported by a set of six videos to help guide you through your plasterboard DIY projects and ensure you’re well prepared and delighted with the final result. 

Proud supporter of DIYers: We’re building again on Channel 7’s House Rules!

Season 6 sees us return bigger and better than ever, and proudly supporting the hard work of the #houserules teams around Australia. We’re building on the trust of our Season 5 wall and ceiling products, where our SHEETROCK® plasterboard featured as a famous backdrop to many a team ‘talk’, and our Cairo Cornice completed a dream dining room for the Tassie #houserules couple.

Stay tuned for all the tears, tantrums, renovating dreams and disasters, as we proudly support this year’s teams.

Bedroom/Bathroom

USG Boral has the fundamentals you need to create your perfect bedroom or bathroom:


Just watch one of our instructional videos to get started.


Our SHEETROCK® plasterboards for walls and ceilings makes for easy installation, simple score and snap, and superior sag resistance. Plus, it’s up to 15% lighter than USG Boral Standard Core Plasterboards. Certified by GECA and winner of Global Gypsum Product of the Year 2016, SHEETROCK® is recognized as a leading product in innovation, quality and effectiveness.

FinalCote™ jointing compound now comes in a handy-sized 4.8kg pail, making it perfect for smaller plasterboard projects by home renovators or DIYers. Simply apply straight from the re-sealable pail, and sand by hand to get a smooth finish excellent for painting. FinalCote™ is the complete plastering solution for weekend warriors and occasional tradespeople.

Living room

The living room is the heart of the home, and where you spend most of your time. It should be comfy, but also functional.

Boisterous kids, loud movies and games make it hard on the ears and the walls. Try our Multistop® and SoundStop® plasterboards to resist impact and increase acoustic isolation within your home. You can improve the sound performance of the kids’ bedrooms or home cinema, and create quieter areas for the study and master bedroom with effective plasterboard solutions from USG Boral.


  • Multistop™ is suitable for a wide range of wall and ceiling applications, and is ideal for high traffic areas requiring fire, impact and sound resistance.
  • SoundStop® is specifically developed to help control room noise levels and improve living comfort in the home.

Custom room: Studio or workshop?

Building a quiet space, studio, or rumpus room for rowdy teenagers? Then you need superior performance from your walls and ceilings. Use our SoundStop™ plasterboard applied in Quiet Living™ walls and ceilings, to reduce sound transfer in quiet areas, home cinemas, studios or living rooms.

Add a bright finish to your walls and ceilings with ASONA Triton Fabwall for that colourful splash to custom interiors. Designed to be seen but not heard, these sound absorbing panels are available in a wide range of decorative fabric finishes. Find out more about our ASONA acoustical range.

Interior design

Change up your interior style with USG Boral Decorative Cornice. We have a range of designs to choose from including cornice profiles to suit classic, modern and contemporary interiors, including the popular New England ‘Hamptons’ style home.
