How to install plasterboard sheets?

All right, here we go. Planning another project :wink:

 

I am getting the asbestos containing internal wall and ceiling lining removed from two bedrooms and so I need to reline with Gyprock.

 

Haven’t never done this I have few newbie questions:

  • I’ve seen few install videos and they always put an offcut under a sheet to form a gap between floor and sheet. How is this gap sealed? Or you are supposed to leave it and cover it with skirting boards?
  • How do I work around existing window casings/sills and door frames?

  • We have got exposed beams as seen in the attached photo. How does one plaster around those?

  • Insulation - can I put battens into the wall cavity from the inside even though there is no vapour barrier between behind the cladding?

 

Any advise is much appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Hello @tom138 

 

My apologies for the late reply. The K3 can be ordered at the trade desk. Please note that it comes in 12 pack quantities, so if you decide to use this, it's best to double check the quantity that you'll need for your project. The sheets come in standard size 2400 x 1200 and its always advisable to inquire about the turnaround time so that you'll have a good idea when it will be delivered.

 

If you need further assistance, please let us know.

 

Eric
