WHAT IS PLASTERBOARDING?
Dot and Dab, Dry Lining, Over-Boarding
Drywall, also known as plasterboard is made of gypsum mixed with water and spread between two large sheets of paper. Drywall is used for the construction of interior walls and ceilings. Plasterboard is installed by lifting the pieces and attaching them to a wall stud or over existing walls using the ‘Dot and Dab’ method. The dot and dap technique involves placing a series of dabs of plasterboard adhesive in strategic points on the wall for the plasterboard to stick to. The adhesive is also placed all around the edges in order to create a good seal.
It is so much easier and faster to use than solid plastering and is a cheaper plastering method too. Plasterboarding can also be carried out in existing buildings where the original plaster has been removed back to brick and just a re-skim is not going to be sufficient.
Once the walls and ceilings are completely covered in plasterboard, angle beads are applied and the joints are taped up. They are then skimmed with a finish coat of skim plaster.
It is also so much more versatile as you can buy different types of plasterboard that help with different problems.

PLASTERBOARD INSTALLATION TYPES
Insulated, Acoustic, Fire Resistant
Installation of Acoustic plasterboard is designed to minimise noise transmission between rooms. This type of soundproof plasterboard tends to have a higher density than most drywalls. It helps to contain noise within a given room.
Acoustic plasterboard has a thickness of about 12.5mm which reduces the ability of noise to travel through the ceiling and walls. It’s possible to improve its sound insulation ability further by reinforcing it with soundproof material such as mineral wool or fibreglass.
Fire Resistant Plasterboard
As the name suggests, this type of plasterboard resists fire although its effectiveness varies depending on the fire performance rating of each product.
Some products of fire-resistant plasterboard may be entirely fireproof while others may avoid catching on fire for several hours. Fire-resistant plasterboard should have a minimum resistance time of half an hour to two hours.
Glass fibres and other additives give this form of drywall its fire-resistant properties.
A popular form of drywall is insulated plasterboard or thermal plasterboard. It is designed to keep the heat in. Its ability to contain heat is achieved with the addition of a thermal insulation board that is attached to the back of the plasterboard.
They are combined together to form a single sheet and create an insulation plasterboard. Insulated plasterboard can also act as a money-saving approach to insulating your walls.
OUR PLASTERING SERVICES IN MEDWAY AND KENT
Solid plastering might not always be the best method for your project or budget. As experienced plasterers we offer a wide variety. of wet plaster and dry lining services.
Ceiling and Wall Skimming
Wall and Ceiling over Skimming is something we get asked to do a lot and is one of the most common requests for customers looking for a nice smooth wall. More often than not when removing old wallpaper the blemishes in your wall will become very visible. A 3 mm plaster skim finish over otherwise sound existing walls is an effective way to hide those unsightly blemishes and prepare the room for a final painting or papering.

Artex Removal and Replacement
Looking to turn your Artex back to flat? Newman Plastering offers a safe, professional removal and replacement of unsightly Artex ceilings.

But our experienced Plasterers will inspect your ceiling to assess whether skimming or overboarding is best for you.
