Why do you need a plasterboarding specialist?

Plasterboard is known for its insulation and sound-absorption properties, making it a staple for homes all year round. Its ability to simultaneously keep warm air in and cold air out places it in high regard, especially in residential homes. The integrity of plasterboard, however, may be compromised when it is not installed and maintained adequately.

When plasterboard has been continually exposed to moisture, it can compromise the integrity of the structure of your walls and ceilings. The humidity can also support toxic mould growth, leading to damp. Not only can this damage walls, but it can also cause respiratory illnesses.

If mould is growing within your plasterboard and you lack the technical know-how needed to remove and discard it, a plasterboarding specialist is the professional to contact.

What does a plasterboarding contractor do?

Plasterboarding experts are not only responsible for the selection of the best plasterboard materials, equipment and installation procedures, but they also possess a wider range of skills and duties, including:

  • Plasterboarding Installation and insulation: A plasterboarding specialist is tasked with the assembly and installation of insulation and plasterboard into its required position, using standard devices and equipment. They will be able to handle wet plasterboard or dry lining, depending on what’s best for the property.
  • Removal of panelling: A professional can remove and properly dispose of panelling and drywall, as per industry safety standards and requirements.
  • Treatment and repairing of damage: In the event of damaged or poorly installed plasterboard, a specialist is responsible for the treatment of specified areas, as well as fixing all repairable damage.
