Plastering and dry lining


Whether you just want to skim over dated artexed ceilings, or you have a new build with specific boarding and plastering requirements, we can meet and exceed your needs.

We also apply at least two coats of suitable plaster (we often use three over artex) to achieve a smooth and durable finish to your property.  As with any building work preparation is key, any loose material is always removed and any cracks covered with skrim tape.  If the surface is unsound for plastering, we will both hack off and apply new render or dry line with the appropriate plasterboard.

There is a range of plasterboards on the market to meet a range of requirements, these include: -

Insulated – Plasterboard with a layer of insulation fixed to the rear face to offer increased thermal insulation (lowered K value) to reduce heat loss via walls, useful in properties without cavity wall insulation.

Moisture check - Plasterboard with a layer of foil on the rear, useful in damp areas such as bathrooms.

Fire check – High-density plasterboard required by building control in certain applications such as garage ceilings with living accommodation above

Sound check - High-density plasterboard used to meet the requirements of part d of the building regulations, designed to reduce noise transmission. Ideal to reduce the annoyance of noisy neighbours
