This is the application of a finishing plaster known in the trade as a 'two coat skim' over walls and ceilings. The result is a smooth surface which is ready for painting or papering.
This is the application of a sand and cement mix to exposed brickwork which offers a good impermeable surface. Internally, outward facing walls are rendered, internal facing walls are bonded. Rendering a wall consists of the application of two layers, firstly the scratch coat which offers the second layer a flat and even surface and also a good key. The second coat is rubbed down to complete a quality sponge finished surface.
This term relates to the securing of plasterboards over stud walls, brickwork and ceilings using screws on timber or adhesive on masonry(Dot + Dab). Once drylined the area can be skimmed. Dry lining uses plasterboard fixed to the walls and is therefore a relatively dry process, which can be decorated shortly after completion. Dry-lining can be taped and jointed using special paper tape or it can be skim coated.
