Dry lining describes the use of sheet plasterboard or similar materials fixed either mechanically using drywall screws or using a propriety wallboard adhesive to suitable wall surfaces. Essentially, dry lining involves fixing plasterboard to a prepared background which would normally be timber or lightweight metal framework. The face of the plasterboard can be either skimmed or taped and jointed and decorated using propriety paints.
There is a considerable range of specialist boards available in addition to the familiar wallboard ranging from moisture resistant board to impact and sound resistant to thermal products for use in upgrading external wall locations.
Dry lining is used extensively in domestic and commercial projects as it enables the early completion of internal works as the drying time is reduced with this type of construction.
Dry lining can therefore be more cost effective than other options in overall time saved. O’Brien Interiors offer an already established, efficient dry lining service across the Home Counties.
