Dry Lining

This term relates to the securing of plasterboards over stud walls, brickwork & ceilings using screws on timber or adhesive on masonry (Dot + Dab). Once drylined the area can be skimmed.

Dry lining uses plasterboard fixed to the walls & is therefore a relatively dry process, which can be decorated shortly after completion. Dry lining can be taped & jointed using special paper tape or it can be skim coated.

Thermal Insulation Boards

We can supply and fit thermal insulation boards for all your requirements.

Thermal insulation plasterboards are used to top up external cavity wall insulation, fixed to the inside external wall by either dot and dab (adhesive) or timber or metal frame. They offer excellent levels of insulation and cost savings on the dreaded heating bills, boards come in a variety of thicknesses - 15mm to 60mm - which we can tailor to your individual needs based on building regulations and the sizes of your rooms.

This type of work is proving very popular with our customers, we find many have cold lounges or bedrooms and only require boards on external walls. We remove skirtings and coving if needed, fix boards and refit skirtings and coving, and skim the boards or tape and joint them to give a surface ready for decoration. The results are a warmer and more energy efficient room, with the added benefit of pristine newly plastered walls.
