Dry Lining

This term relates to the securing of plasterboards over stud walls, brickwork and ceilings using screws on timber or adhesive on masonry (Dot + Dab). Once drylined the area can be skimmed. Dry lining uses plasterboard fixed to the walls and is therefore a relatively dry process, which can be decorated shortly after completion. Dry lining can be taped and jointed using special paper tape or it can be skim coated.
