Drylining is the process of cladding internal wails by placing pre-cut boards directly on top of the surfaces, using a ‘Dot and Dab’ method. Plasterboard adhesive is applied directly to the wall and then pushing the plasterboard sheet to the adhesive allowing it to set. It offers a quick and effective way to smooth out rough or textured surfaces and provides added insulation. The joints are then plaster skimmed or Taped and Jointed.
Tape and Joint
Tape and Joint is the process of using a jointing tape between two sheets of plasterboard, whether on a wall or ceiling. This is then covered in jointing compound which is blended into the plasterboard to create a smooth surface ready to receive the decoration of choice.
Plasterboard can be fixed to timber or metal frames using screw fixings which offer a stable support for the plasterboard. You can also use this method for attaching plasterboard to ceilings.
Screed is used as a finishing layer for floors, to create a level surface ready for the application of a floor covering. it can be used over damp proof membranes, insulating materials and underfloor heating pipes.
The purpose of render is to typically improve the external appearance of a property and increase its resistance to weather. There are different types of renders available. The one we most commonly use is a Monocouche (through-coloured) render. It is a cement-based render with a choice of colours embedded throughout so there is no need to paint. The type of render you choose will depend on the property, but our years of experience will help guide you.
Metal frame (MF) ceilings combining the lightweight features of plasterboard with the structural support of metal. Almost any type of plasterboard can be installed alongside an MF ceiling system. Suspended ceilings are hung below the primary ceilings in buildings, and metal frame suspended ceilings are a popular choice for many modern residential and commercial applications.
We can supply several different types of insulation for your project. Thermal Boards or insulation rolls in cavities or roofs. Insulation is a key part for your building, helping to keep the heat inside your home in the colder months and the heat outside in the summer. This is done by providing a barrier between the inside of your home and the different temperature outside. Having insulation installed properly can also help with noise pollution, inside and outside of the building.
