Dry Lining – The Basics

Do you need a room plastered fast? You want to increase your profit margins on a renovation? Do you need high-quality, cost-effective plastering to build a new building? In each case, dry lining is the best choice. Dry lining Manchester offers many benefits beyond cost efficiency and cost effectiveness. This blog examines the “benefits of dry lining” and offers some surprising answers.

Dry Lining – The Basics

Traditional plastering uses wet materials that are applied to walls and then crafted to a smooth finish. Depending on the environment, drying takes anywhere from 3-7 days. Dry Lining is a method of replacing wet plaster with plaster board. It attaches to the wall or has a framework that holds it in place. The installation is quick and easy, and there is no drying time.

Dry Lining: The Benefits

The Logic Plastering team came up with 6 to add on its affordability and quick installation.

1. It improves insulation

Dry lining creates a gap between the plasterboard and wall. To prevent energy loss and retain heat during winter and summer, this cavity can be filled with insulation material. Condensation can be stopped by dry lining insulation.

2. There are many dry lining boards available

You want peace and quiet in the new home office. Acoustic panels will reduce noise and reverberation. You can also use dry lining for bathroom applications such as fireboard, foil-backed board to reduce odour seepage, damp, or aqua board.

3. Paint-Ready Surfaces

Dry lining is used to create smooth walls that can be decorated, reshape ceilings, or partition rooms. After installation, tape the joints between boards, fill the screw heads, and sand the surface lightly to prepare it for painting.

4. Pipes and wires disappear

Dry lining is especially popular for loft conversions, office fit-outs, and extensions. It is fast and easy to install, and it hides unsightly wires and pipes. Panelling is possible because of its flexibility. This allows for easy access to any information that may be needed.

5. Plaster is a lighter alternative to plaster

Plasterwork is more heavy than dry ling boards and can be difficult to maintain. Plaster board will not crack so you won’t need to make repairs or replastering.

6. Flexible System

It is expensive to remove plaster from walls. Dry lining, however, can be removed and re-used easily without costing a lot. This is especially popular in offices that need to adapt to changing needs.
