I'm about to tile the walls in my kitchen. The walls are dry lined and I'm
concerned about the tiles becoming loose as I've noticed that when plugs are
pulled in and out of the sockets the plasterboard flexes. Should I be
thinking about replacing the dry ling mounting box on the sockets with a
steel box which is fixed to the brickwork so giving a solid support?
Hardly the latest trend !! - it's called drylining and I was drylining
houses almost 25 years ago.
The distance between the blockwork and the plasterboard varies enormously
depending on a number of factors but you will find that there is normally a
maximum of 15mm depth - not enough to fit drywall boxes.
