Dry Lining is the process of applying plasterboard directly into the internal brick walls. The plasterboard is applied by mixing a mortar based glue and an applicator. No nails or screws can be seen during the process which means that the finishing touches can only be seen at the edge of the boards. So, why should you consider dry-lining your brick wall?
Saves More Time
This dry lining process can be done almost simultaneously with the ceilings. This results in a faster application and the ceilings would be complete at the same time. No more switching of workers to do the work.
When you dry-line your brick walls, ‘cornice cracking’ is minimised if not eliminated. This is because the materials you join are not different with each other and they don’t detach.
Acoustic and Thermal Properties
Dry Lining improves the thermal and acoustic properties of your home because the plasterboard in the walls create an air gap allowing the walls to continually ‘breathe.’
The plasterboard used in dry-lining is more durable to daily wear and tear. However, if there is any damage, plasterboards are easy to repair, and you can easily find the right materials in a local hardware.
Minimise Moisture and Waste
As explained earlier, only glue and applicator is mixed when applying the plasterboard so there is no additional moisture introduced to the brick wall. This means that painting job can be started as soon as you finish dry lining your brick walls.
Being the standard in construction practice in the UK for decades, drylining has been time-tested and time-proven to be durable and effective.
