Dry lining the term dry lining strictly applies to the use of plasterboard to replace the two coat wet plaster finish to internal block work. This method has grown immensely in popularity over the past years due to it being quick and relatively clean to apply compared to two coat plaster systems.

Drylining masonry is commonly known as ‘Dot and Dab’. This form of dry lining is much more skilled as it involves using plasterboard adhesive. The adhesive is applied to the wall using a hand board and trowel, the plasterboard is then gently pushed onto the evenly spaced dabs and checked for levels and square vertically and horizontally. The main advantages of dry lining relate to the speed of installation and a much quicker drying out process.
