Boarding Walls/Ceilings

Dry-lining / Plasterboard / Over boarding

There is a wide range of different types of plasterboard available, each with their own practical as well as aesthetic advantages. Using a number of different techniques, it is possible to get around all sorts of ceiling and wall related issues.


Dry-lining simply involves fixing plasterboard to internal walls, using a technique commonly referred to as dotting and dabbing.
Using a product call Dry Wall adhesive, we are able to stick plasterboard to new, as well as existing walls, to prepare them for plastering.

Some uses for Dry Walling are:

  • A quick and effective method to install new walls, when the existing sand and lime walls need to be stripped back to brick, because they are falling off
  • Very clean and tidy
  • Creates a perfectly flat wall, great for straightening out bent walls and wonky window reveals

Over boarding Ceilings

If your ceilings are cracked, or covered in flakey old paint or stubborn wall paper that refuses to come off, over boarding the ceiling can quickly prepare the ceiling for a fresh skim of plaster.

The advantages to over boarding are:

  • Stop cracks from coming back
  • Save hours of back breaking, laborious steaming, trying to attempt to remove wallpaper that has fused itself to the ceiling
  • Provide a long lasting stable background for plastering when faces with sporadic areas of flaky paint or artex
  • Adds an extra layer of sound and heat insulation to the ceiling
