Dry Lining Borehamwood (Plasterboarding): Some plasterers in Borehamwood also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in a lot of home improvements. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is mounted on a brick surface, a wood studding or joist or Gypframe metal framing to create a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. While you could paint or decorate the plasterboard finish itself after a bit of filling, normally most people like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin layer of plaster to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal frame Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used, when fixing plasterboard to timber studding or joists, drywall screws or nails are used and when fixing to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used.
