Benefit from the experience of our specialists with specialist material knowledge in planning and execution in dry construction.

Dry construction - walls and ceilings with plasterboard

Dry construction with plasterboard panels certainly has its advantages over solid construction for the design and division of interior spaces. The most important features: Dry construction is easy to realise, clean to handle and inexpensive. The time required is also not particularly significant.

You can still plan drywalls made of plaster later, when you already live in your house. Unless special sound insulation is required and you do not want to attach heavy objects to walls, a construction made of plasterboard is an excellent alternative to masonry walls.

What exactly is drywall and how is it realised?

Dry construction trades fall into the category of plastering work. Therefore, in contrast to the classic solid construction method, you do not need a bricklayer, but can also leave the execution to a specialist company such as MVM AG. Instead of bricks, sand-lime bricks or aerated concrete and cement, dry construction uses a substructure made of wood or metal profiles and plasterboard cladding.

Walls and room boundaries made in this way are not load-bearing. On the other hand, they do not require a load-bearing wall on the floor below, but can be placed anywhere. This results in many design and partitioning options for larger rooms that cannot be realised in the same quality in any other way.

The advantages of dry construction

Dry construction is ideal if you want to give an interior a new layout and structure without having to pay attention to the statics of a building. Compared to other construction methods, drywall can be erected quickly and easily. No cement needs to be processed, so this method is considered particularly clean. In addition, the drying phase required for cement is not necessary.

The filling of joints between the plasterboard panels or of connections is done with a very fast-drying filler. You can therefore apply wallpaper or paint the walls with a colour of your choice after a short time.

Cable ducts and shafts can be installed in the gaps behind the plasterboard without any complications. All in all, drywall construction is much more cost-effective than the classic masonry construction method. Last but not least, it also prevents moisture from getting into the interior of the building and possibly causing mould and other damage.

When the dry construction method is unfavourable

Due to the mainly processed material gypsum, drywall is not as load-bearing as solid walls. Heavy loads cannot be hung on them, but you don’t have to worry about pictures or light shelves. They are also no match for solid masonry in terms of sound and fire protection, despite their high-quality finish. They should therefore only be erected within a residential unit, but not as a boundary to neighbouring flats.
