The benefits and advantages of dry lining

Using plasterboard is the modern method to create partition walls that can suit any installation. With a variety of plasterboard available, including sound and fire proofed board, plus aqua board designed to create that dream wet room, dry lining is suitable for domestic as well as commercial premises. So what are the benefits and advantages of dry lining?

It’s quick and efficient

Dry lining works by creating a timber frame and nailing the appropriate plasterboard in place. It’s the quickest, cleanest and most convenient way to partition a space compared to traditional methods involving block and cement.

Conceal pipes and wires

Because of the flexibility offered by dry lining, it’s a simple and effective way to disguise ugly pipework and wiring. This makes dry lining ideal for a final fit for loft and basement conversions.

Better insulation

Unlike traditional brick and block walls the construction methods involved in dry lining create a cavity that can be packed with insulation. This allows for the creation of better insulated rooms and lower energy bills.

Improve acoustics

Choose sound proofing plasterboard and you can radically alter and improve the acoustics in a room. Ideal for everything from a busy meeting room to a teenager’s den.

Easy renovation

Because any surface can be dry lined, this technique is an effective one for renovation, allowing you to rapidly improve the look of a room. And because you can even out uneven walls, you’ll rapidly achieve an aesthetically pleasing and professional finish.

Easy to decorate

It’s much quicker and cleaner to skim plasterboard, leaving you with a smooth and even surface that makes decorating a breeze.

    I’m planning on having plasterboard installed. It makes sense that I would want to get dry lining installed over it! That seems like a great way to ensure that all of the wires get insulated properly.

    Wow, thank you for informing me that dry lining help increases the flexibility so that you can hide piping! About a week ago, I was talking to my sister, and she mentioned that she wants to start construction on her new home! It sounds like this plasterboard could be a creative way for soundproofing. I will have to talk to her about it for her new home.

    I’m wanting to have plasterboard installed next month for my basement so I can finally get it fully built out. It’s interesting that dry lining can help with insulation by creating a cavity. I’ll be sure to hire a plasterer to give me an estimate on how much it would cost for my basement.
