Plasterboard preparation and fitting wall & ceiling panels

Overview:

Question regarding a gutted bathroom.

Question:

At the point of resurfacing existing tiled walls with plasterboard. Will I need the board skimmed or will sealant be OK on the new board? Would you recommend fitting the walls or ceiling first? I might be delayed with the walls due to plumbing issues. - DerekThanks

    Hi Derek - so long as the plasterboard is dry, flat, has no loose surfaces and is relatively smooth (without being gloss smooth) then you should be fine, but I wouldn't recommend you use sealant. If you use our PU (polyurethane) adhesive you'd get a much stronger hold and a ten year guarantee with our panels. In terms of which you fit first, if you're going with our panels for both your wall and ceiling, I'd recommend you clad the walls first, then use some ceiling coving for a nice finish and put the ceiling up last.
