What is Dry Lining?

Dry lining is the process where sheets of plasterboard, basically premade and dried plaster, is fitted to an unfinished surface. This can be things like brick, masonry, or whatever else that requires covering. The plasterboard can also be placed straight to wood or metal stud partitions. The plasterboard is fixed to the walls by nails, screws, or a drywall adhesive designed for this job. There’s also the option to add a covering of insulation to the back of the dry lining to improve the thermal qualities of your property. If you attach the dry lining to a stud partition then the insulation can be added and it fills cavity spaces to make the entire thing more solid and secure.
