Plasterboard also has the benefit of helping control condensation and damage in humid conditions.
When should I use plasterboard?
The principal use of plasterboard is to construct wall linings or ceilings. This can range from commercial properties such as shops to domestic settings like houses and flats. Traditionally plasterboard was used internally however some brands have developed plasterboard that can also be used externally.
Plasterboard is an important element to add to your home. Not only does it provides stability but it offers a smooth finish for walls which makes them easier to paint. Furthermore, it is very light and can be fitted and applied very easily. Finally, if you need to meet building regulations such as fire, moisture or acoustic regulations then plasterboard is a convenient way of doing this.
Are there different types of plasterboard?
There are a few categories that plasterboard can fall into which include fire performance plasterboard, acoustic or sound performance, thermal performance, impact resistance focused plasterboard as well as moisture and vapour plasterboard.
