What is Wall Boarding and Why do I Need It? If you are planning on redecorating a part of your home, you may be weighing up the options for how to approach refurbishing your internal walls. Should you simply paint over the top of the current colour, sand down first or re-plaster? Is the wall of good enough quality to work on? There are many questions for what may initially seem like a very straightforward process. However, there is one very simple way to make your entire decorating job a lot easier and more effective: wall boarding.

What is wall boarding?Wall Boarding

Wall boarding is essentially the process of applying plasterboard (?) to an existing internal wall to create the perfect surface for plastering and then painting or wallpapering. Also referred to as wall panels, wall boards can also be decorate and serve as the visible exterior of a wall, or can be decorated directly onto. These can be assembled as a substitute for any other kind of wall, and can be attached to the original wall either by screwing in with timber battens or with adhesive. Electricians and plumbers are also able to cut out sections to allow for electrical and water outlets.

Why does my project need it?

There are a number of reasons why wall boarding is so beneficial for a whole range of refurbishing jobs, from bathrooms and kitchens to living areas. The primary reason for why wall boarding is used is that it creates a perfectly smooth surface for plastering over. Many internal wall surfaces are not ideal for decoration, whether it be due to uneven brickwork, crumbling old plaster or crumbling walls. Simply attaching wall boarding will level out the walls and provide a smooth surface, creating a sleek, professional finish to any wall.

Wall boarding can also add extra insulation to a room, allowing you to regulate the temperature inside your home efficiently and economically. You will use less energy to heat the room and thus save money and help reduce emissions. This also serves as a form of sound proofing, so to add some extra privacy to your home, for example if you live beside noisy neighbours, wall boarding is a great option.

The process of wall boarding is the chosen option for many around the world, from professional builders Exeter to self-builders abroad. This is in part because it reduces construction costs, saving you money. It is also a simple installation process, reducing time spent on creating power outlets and causing almost no mess, so your home remains pristine. This combined with the fantastic, unrivalled results produced makes wall boarding a clear choice.

Wall boarding can be very eco friendly, too. A new type of eco friendly 3D wall panel has recently been made out of the fibrous residue of sugarcane, which is 100% recycled and 100% biodegradable. So, if you’re looking to begin a ‘green’ renovation, look no further!
