Stud partitions and ceiling joists are fitted using 4X2 sawn timbers or metal frames. The caverties can be filled with rock and slag wool insulations which are used as thermal insulation in walls and attics and as acoustical insulation for residential walls and ceilings. They offer a wide array of benefits for homeowners looking for environmentally responsible thermal and acoustical insulation solutions.
12mm Drywall, also known as plasterboard or gypsum board, is a panel made of gypsum plaster pressed between two thick sheets of paper. It is used to make interior walls and ceilings. These come in fire retardant or moisture retardant sheets 1220x2440mm. These sheets can be screw fixed into the timbers & metal frames or adhered to masonry surfaces. The joints of the sheets are filled to give a smooth surface.
Walls and ceilings that have been skim-plastered can be PVA’d and then painted with emulsions.
This is done with the use of steamers. These surfaces then need to be sanded to remove residue then stabilized using a PVA solution and made good using plaster and fillers.
It is a non-woven material combining properties of textile fibres and cellulose (wood pulp). The two materials are combined producing a lining material, which is very strong. This can then be painted or papered.
There is a renewed interest in patterned papers and dynamic wall covering effects. It is important to line the surface before these papers are applied to ensure best possible finish and long lasting life. Patterned papers have to be carefully thought out when choosing it’s position to ensure they join and flow correctly.
Often these plaster works have a heavy build up of paints applied over the years and so loose there definition. Using a peel away alkali-based paint removal system these layers can be removed, made good and repainted showing there original beauty.
Timbers can be glued or nailed. These timbers may require staining. All will require a protective finish of varnish, wax or oil.
