Benefits of Dry lining and Plaster boarding.

Dry lining has grown in popularity over the last 15-20 years and most new and modern housing schemes use this method. Dry liners generally building the internal Partition walls in homes, offices and shops using plasterboard. Compared to traditional rendered plastering methods it is much cleaner and quicker to apply. Dry lining work means plasterboard being fitted to different surfaces, such as timber, metal and brickwork.(Dot & Dab)

In some circles dry lining is viewed as a cheaper alternative to the more conventional methods. However, dry lining walls does have its benefits and advantages, which include:

  • It’s a quicker and more efficient method compared to traditional practices, such as block, cement and sand.
  • Dry lining hides pipes and wires.                                                                                                                          
  • It provides a cavity space for insulation and will generally allow greater use of Thermal and Acoustic insulation enhancing quality & comfort of room space.
