What do you need to know about partition wall construction?
A partition wall is a non-load bearing wall, usually put up to divide larger rooms in order to maximise the use of space. They can be built into the existing frame of a room or kept movable, depending on their purpose. Depending on the purpose of the wall and the effect you want to achieve, there are several options to consider for materials. Typically a partition wall is built with a simple wooden frame before being covered in plasterboards and having skirting boards fitted. Though this may seem simple, a poorly done job may not just leave you with a poorly built wall, but lasting damage to your floor and ceiling.
For a standard, static partition wall construction may cost around £750. A tradesman will want to take measurements and assess the job themselves. Remember that installing additional doors will add to your quote. Ask to see pictures from a tradesman’s previously completed jobs while comparing your options. They should also be able to provide reviews and references from their clientele. It is important to make sure your tradesman is fully qualified; ask what qualifications they have for carpentry work and whether they belong to any tradesmans’ associations. Finally, it is crucial to make sure they are adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities.
