Dry Lining Godalming: Several plasterers in Godalming also offer dry lining services, which will be required in a lot of home improvements. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is mounted on a masonry or brickwork surface, a wood studding or metal framing to produce a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. While you could paint or decorate the plasterboard finish itself, usually most people elect to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin layer of plaster afterwards to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing plasterboard to wooden joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal Gypframe Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.
