Quite flat walls are rarely found in apartments. This disadvantage is primarily concerned with old houses, however, modern new buildings are often sinful as well. Eliminate such irregularities can help drywall.
When the wall surface has drops of more than 30 mm, it is time consuming to level them with the help of wet plaster. In this case, it is more appropriate to use sheets GLA.
Installation of drywall on the surface of the wall
The use of this material can be carried out in frame or frameless way. The first technology involves the fixing of drywall using a frame made of wooden slats or metal profiles. The disadvantage of this method is the reduction of the usable floor space, which is explained by the rather large thickness of the structure. The advantages of the frame method include the possibility of laying additional insulation.
Frameless technology involves the use of construction glue in the installation process. To do this, you must first prepare the wall surface, after which sheets GLA are attached to it.
Work technology when using the frame method
Construction of walls using drywall is carried out in several stages:
The construction of the frame of the rack and guide profiles, fixed on the ceiling.
The connection of individual elements of construction screws or dowels.
Laying insulation from the reverse side of the sheets.
Putty wall surface.
Processing and reinforcement of joints.
Plasterboard wall decoration
