Plasterboarding Barton Stacey (Dry Lining)

Dry Lining (Plasterboarding) Barton Stacey

Dry Lining Barton Stacey: There are plenty of home improvement assignments that will need dry lining to be carried out, and several Barton Stacey plasterers will be able to tackle this for you. Dry lining is the procedure where plasterboard is attached to a wood studding or joist, a brick or masonry surface or metal framing to produce a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Quite often the plasterboard surface itself can be painted, although mostly it will be skimmed with a thin layer of finishing plaster, which can be painted or papered without filling. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal frame self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used, when attaching to a brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used and when attaching plasterboard to wood stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used.

Screeding

Screeding in Barton Stacey UK

Rendering

Wall Rendering Barton Stacey UK

Rendering Barton Stacey: The process of applying a mixture of lime, cement, sand and water to either interior or exterior walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface, is called rendering, which is a very similar skill to plastering.
