Dry Lining Jarrow: Quite a few plasterers in Jarrow also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the procedure by which plasterboard is affixed to a brick or masonry surface, a timber studding or joist or metal Gypframe to create a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. While you can decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, in reality most people like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal frame self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used and when fixing plasterboard to wooden studding or joists, drywall screws or nails are used.
