Dry lining work involves plasterboard being applied to different surfaces, such as timber, metal and brickwork. If you’re dry lining metal or timber then technically this is known as “Tacking”, and involves plasterboard being fixed to timber ceiling joists or stud walls.

Dot and Dab

 “Dot and Dab” refers to the process of dry ling masonry, and compared to tacking is a highly skilled form of dry lining, and involves using plasterboard adhesive. A plasterboard is fitted to a masonry wall by a series of ‘dabs’ of plaster adhesive, and the joints between the sheets of plasterboard are then sealed.
