Hiring a tradesman for plaster boarding/ dry lining
When it is time to redecorate a wall, plaster boarding or dry lining can be a great way to save time.

What do you need to know about plaster boarding/ dry lining?
Plaster boarding/ dry lining is a good low cost alternative to re-plastering a wall. Plaster boards can be easily attached to your walls, making them flat so that they can be decorated far more quickly. They can also be made more secure by skimming over them with plaster, and the units can be easily replaced if one gets damaged. However, they are also weaker and less durable than a fully plastered wall.
An advantage of hiring a professional for a job like this is cleanliness. Although not as messy as plastering, a plaster boarding/ dry lining job can leave behind a lot of residual dust. A Pro will know how to minimise this, and may even include the cost of cleaning their work area in their quote.
The cost of a plaster boarding/ dry lining job will depend on the size of your room in square meters. Typically, you can expect to pay between £8 and £15 per square meter. Prices can also vary depending on your location in the UK, with plasterers in London and the south charging more for their services than those elsewhere.
Before booking your plaster boarding/ dry lining project, make sure that you have a plan ready for decorating afterwards!
