Dry Lining

At Homewood Plastering in Peterborough, we offer a range of plastering services, including dry lining. Dry lining, also known as plasterboarding, is the process of attaching plasterboard panels to the internal walls and ceilings of a building. It is a quick and efficient way to create a smooth, even surface that is ready for plastering or painting.

There are several steps involved in dry lining:

  1. Measure and mark the wall: Before you begin dry lining, it’s important to measure and mark the wall to ensure that the plasterboard panels are correctly aligned.
  2. Cut the plasterboard: Using a saw or a plasterboard cutter, cut the plasterboard to the correct size and shape.
  3. Fix the plasterboard to the wall: Plasterboard is usually fixed to the wall using screws or nails. It is important to ensure that the plasterboard is securely attached to the wall, taking care to avoid any gaps or overlaps.
  4. Fill the joints: Once the plasterboard is fixed to the wall, any joints or gaps between the panels must be filled with jointing compound. This is smoothed out using a trowel or a jointing knife to create a seamless finish.
  5. Sand the joints: Once the jointing compound has dried, it must be sanded down to create a smooth, even surface. This can be done using a fine-grit sandpaper or a sanding block.
