Our professionals deal with every aspect of plasterboarding and work with a variety of boards such as wallboard, fireline, moisture resistant, vapour, acoustic and insulation board.
Overboarding is when new plasterboards are fixed over a current ceiling. this occurs frequently for example, when the current ceiling is made from lath and plaster and is in a bad way, overboarding it is quicker and a lot cleaner than taking the old one down.
