Dry Lining Darlington (Plasterboarding): A number of plasterers in Darlington also provide dry lining services, which will be required in plenty of improvement projects. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is mounted on metal framing, a brickwork surface or a wood studding or joist to form a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. While it's possible to decorate the plasterboard surface as it is, in general most folks elect to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat afterwards 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 to a brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" bonding is used and when fixing plasterboard to timber studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used.
