Solid plastering vs plasterboard: What’s the difference?
Solid plastering is a traditional technique which involves an expertly skilled tradesperson applying plaster to a wall using a trowel. Solid plaster can be used to cover a large variety of materials and was the common method of lining internal walls of building of yesteryear and for higher end modern day projects.
Plasterboard is a modern interior lining material which comes preassembled in panels which are fixed to a stud wall. The wall is then finished with a topping compound which is used to fill the gaps between individual sheets of plasterboard to give the appearance of one continuous surface.
