Fixing Plasterboard

The wide selection of quality specialty boards being produced means that various fixing techniques are required depending on what is been installed. To make sure that you get the most out of your investment in these quality boards they will need to be installed using the correct materials and in the correct way.

It is not just the technical side of things that makes the difference on how plasterboard is installed. If you want to live in a house without unsightly cracks, visible joints, screws, and nails sticking out, then you will need the right fixing techniques used with the correct building systems which will help minimize these problems occurring.

These days homes are designed with plasterboard as a major structural component. If you look at a new house bracing plan you will see a lot of different types of bracing units (GS1, GS2, BL1,BLP, BLG, SPG,) that all have different requirements when it comes to the installation of the required plasterboard. The lining methods in wet areas change depending on what type of finish you are having such as tiles or paint.

Being a part of the Club Gib Installer (CGI) means we are in contact with the board manufacturers regularly, so we have up-to-date info on the latest specification changes as new boards are introduced and building techniques change.
