About Dry Lining - Building Solutions & More
Dry lining or drywall as it is called in the States is the term used to describe covering a structure with a dry product which is attached to the structure. Traditionally surfaces were covered with a wet sand and cement render or plaster. Dry lining now refers mainly to covering internal walls with plasterboard. The plasterboard is either stuck on the walls or fixed to a timber, or steel frame which is attached to the walls.
Dry lining has several advantages over the wet finish in that it can be installed much more quickly, especially in the case where it is stuck to the walls using a mix of plaster as adhesive. This method is called dot and dab. The fact that dry lining is lighter than its wet counterparts means that the finished construction is lighter and further more less moisture is introduced into the building structure. Dry lining partitions also means that properties can be changed to suit the changing needs of a family more quickly. Dry lining also allows (in the majority of cases) greater use of insulative materials to keep the property warm and meet the increasingly demanding specifications of the Insulation Building Regulations. Conservation of fuel and power are most Governments buzzwords these days. Plasterboard also comes in many varieties which, without changing methods of construction too much, allow for the introduction of soundproofing, greater fire protection, moisture protection and the protection offered when warm vapour is not allowed to get into voids and condense on colder surfaces. Condensation is one of the most frequent causes of damage in properties and should be safeguarded against as often as possible. Finally a huge advantage of dry lining is, if it is properly prepared, it is considerably easier to decorate than plaster.
Building Solutions & More perform all stages of dry lining from cutting and fixing plasterboard (instalation) to taping, jointing and painting plasterboard
