Using plasterboard sheets is the ideal method to create a flat background in preparation for skimming. Standard sizes of plasterboard are 1.2m wide by 2.4m high. The sheets of plasterboard can be screwed into wood or metal studwork, stuck to brick or block work and even stuck to insulation.
Plasterboarding is a cost effective, speedy, less messy alternative to the more traditional method of sand and cement rendering to the inside of houses.
Not only this but different types of plasterboard can be used depending on the requirements of the job. For example, pink plasterboard is more dense and has higher fire resistance. Therefore, it is most appropriately used around steel RSJ or structural beams. Green plasterboard is used in bathrooms as it is moisture resistant. Blue plasterboard is used for partition walls to help reduce noise pollution. These are just three examples of how versatile plasterboard can be.
