    Plasterboard adhesive on old brick wall

    Would it need to be insulated on an internal wall? I might timber frame it but I don’t really want to loose too much room

    Plasterboard adhesive on old brick wall

    It’s a long internal wall, old house with lime mortar beween the bricks, we are changing the layout so my brother can live with my mum and she wanted a new radiator and tv point and electrical points along the wall so they come out a fair bit, otherwise I would have sand and cemented it. With...

    Plasterboard adhesive on old brick wall

    Stripped a wall back to brick and I would like to plasterboard it due to new water pipes running down it and plenty of new electrical cables. One plasterer came round and said it’s best to scratch coat with sand and cement then board and another said to sbr the wall to seal in the dust then...

    What internal plaster for solid brick walls

    For bawaur I was thinking of a simple 25mm if I went down that route but again I don’t know if I could go thicker on the external walls and thinner where the insulation isn’t needed as much or if 25mm in the minimum for the base all round? Quote would be entirely up to you, I can send you a...

    What internal plaster for solid brick walls

    This is also worrying me lol, for obvious reasons but I know it’s going to be pricey! It’s also why I’ve asked on here as there must be other options that will work fine other than lime? Lime seems such a forgotten mystery!

    What internal plaster for solid brick walls

    I will give them a call, surprisingly there doesn’t seem to be many lime specialists around my area and none that anyone I know can recommend which does worry me, as it’s hard to find a good referral like with most other trades. Quite a few around the west wales area and over the border

    What internal plaster for solid brick walls

    I’ve emailed bawaur and I will get a quote from their approved tradesmen but I’m waiting on a couple of answers from them. It’s also very expensive!

    What internal plaster for solid brick walls

    Lime was on there originally. And no render. It has been botched over the years with pebble dash render, built up bodged concrete outside yard which bridged the bitumin dpc and patches of hacked off internal plaster replaced with the hardest cement scratch coat known to man and most of the...

    What internal plaster for solid brick walls

    Hi guys, I’m renovating a solid brick property built by my great great grandfather, I’ve had the external walls rendered in lime, and I did plan on doing the internal walls in lime but I’m getting cold feet. Basically I’m very worried about the possible finish I can get from the lime. I like...

    Questions about lime

    Cheers for the info, have you ever seen lime done with internal beads? I haven’t found a stainless one yet? I think I read somewhere that stainless expansion is very different to any plaster so it will crack. No idea if this is true or not Yeah there are a few old building around me and most...

    Questions about lime

    I have been researching lime for a while but I’m finding it hard to get the answers to a couple of questions. I’ve had the external of my solid brick house done in lime and I’m getting close to the stage to do the inside. I would like the lime to be as flat, straight and square as possible...

    South Wales render job near Cardiff

    Because as little as I know about plastering it's obvious that a million pound and a hundred pound wouldn't be correct would it?! I work in engineering and have to price up jobs all the time, it's not too difficult to do a rough price with decent information, which to be honest I think I have...

    Haven't you ever heard that term before? If say 3 people said they are interested and one priced at 1 million pound and another a hundred pound then I wouldn't really start the ball rolling for organising this job with these two.
