Benefits of Drylining


Drylining companies and drylining contractors are well placed to explain what drylining is and why you should consider it for your new building project.

Drylining – which you may also know as drywalling, is a method for finishing internal walls and ceilings. It’s widely recommended throughout the construction industry because it is not only quick to complete, but cost-effective too.  

Drylining companies dryline walls by attaching plasterboard (or similar board materials) directly onto an interior wall or ceiling, rather than using a layer of wet plaster. The drylining contractor will usually employ the dot and dab method, putting evenly spaced ‘dots’ of plaster on the walls, and using this as the adhesive. This covers the bare brickwork or masonry more quickly but just as effectively as doing traditional plastering on the walls and ceilings. 

Advantages of drylining:

Wide variety of plasterboard 

There is a type of plasterboard for any situation you can think of. Bathrooms can benefit from moisture-resistant plasterboard drylining, which can reduce mould and mildew in wet areas of the home.

Quick and easy to install

Drylining companies recommend this method of finishing walls and floors because it’s only fast and simple to do, but is also therefore budget-friendly, taking fewer man hours to complete, while being just as effective. 


There are special soundproof plasterboards and drylining boards available. A drylining contractor can install these specialist boards in the same time as traditional plasterboards, giving an easy and affordable way to stop unwanted sound travelling around a building. 

Thermal efficiency 

Having a drylining company install drylining will offer energy and heat efficiency to a building. Drylining offers excellent heat resistance and is a great way to stop heat escaping outside through internal walls and ceilings. This can drive down energy costs within the home or building.
