The Benefits of Dry-Lining Brick Walls

 

Central Avenue Homes, offers dry-lining to all internal walls in lieu of the conventional (to the Perth Metro region) float and white set finish as an optional item.

In short, dry-lining is the application of plasterboard directly to the internal brick (or block) walls. The plasterboard is fixed using mortar based glue applied with a recently developed applicator. There are no nail or screw holes which means the only finishing is at the recessed edge joints, the joints are the same as those found in almost all ceilings.
