To glue the drywall on the walls - how to ?

with maintenance work on their own need to know how to stick on a plasterboard wall.

this building material is used in the lining of surfaces.

Align the wall is possible by means of plastering, carving irregularities angle grinders.

But working with drywall has many advantages over other methods.

This material can align the wall with even the most significant irregularities.

When installing drywall on the walls make the frame of the profiles.This design is not very convenient if you have to do the repair in a small room.

But do not give up this building material.Drywall can be glued directly to the wall with glue or foam.

The video shows the fastening drywall to different surfaces.

methods for fixing plasterboard

owners of small apartments in making repairs can align the wall, not spending their energy, time.To do this, you need to stick to the wall sheets of drywall.

Depending on the degree of surface roughness, it is proposed to choose the appropriate method of fixing material.

surface has a slight roughness

Most often the walls, lined with concrete, have a relatively smooth surface.When fastening the drywall sheets to use a thin layer of adhesive coating.

In this case, for the laying of electrical wiring must be done in a wall recess.The groove is laid wire, which necessarily must be secured with clamps.

Immediately it should provide nest, where there will be sockets.

After laying wall wiring is recommended to be sure to be primed.If applied on concrete paint, it does not necessarily shoot.

Modern construction materials market offers a primer that can be applied directly on the painted surface.


Finally, the drywall can be fastened.

To do this correctly, it is necessary to follow the instructions or watch the video:

  • The first step is to prepare the adhesive.To this end, it is important to carefully read the instructions printed on the package.To neglect this occupation is not necessary, as there are many varieties of adhesives, which have a different setting time.The amount of glue should be calculated so that the mixture is not dried up, will be held until the work on fixing a single sheet;
  • If the wall sockets are provided, at the appropriate sheet to be cut holes for them.It is necessary to carefully carry out measurements to make holes coincide with the recess in the wall;
  • With a notched trowel, glue is applied to the sheet carefully.It is best to apply the mixture on the entire surface of the drywall.Thus it can be aligned across the plane;
  • sheet coated with an adhesive composition is mounted on the pad in a horizontal position.Be sure to bring out the wires;
  • sheet is raised and slightly pressed against the wall.With the level is to check how exactly set the drywall.If it lies flat, his press down the wall stronger.

surface has a roughness average size

brick walls have big roughness than concrete structures.When installing drywall on the walls are recommended to choose a different brand of glue, as it will be applied in a thicker layer.

For installation of electrical wiring must be done in the brick wall of the groove by shtrobleniya.Under the switches, sockets and pre-drill the holes.

Apply the adhesive composition on the sheet should be more thoroughly than in the first method.Using a trowel or spatula around the perimeter of the adhesive material is applied.

Between slides is important to maintain a distance of about 25 cm. In the central part of the sheet also needs glue.When laying the composition should control the distance between the rows.

It should be 45-50 cm. The adhesive layer must be such that after the installation sheet on the wall, he was 20-30 mm.


sheet coated with an adhesive composition is mounted on the stand and leveled.Then you need to stick to the plasterboard wall.The spirit level is required to check the correct installation of the sheet.

If necessary, lightly tap his hand over irregularities.

surface has large irregularities

The prefabricated houses can often be faced with large defects of the walls.

But such surfaces can be covered with plasterboard.

The procedure will be different from the first two methods:

  • Stroebe walls for cables is not necessary.Posting will be held under the frame structure.Wires necessarily need to fix;
  • from a single sheet you need to cut strips having a width of about 10 cm. They will work as the basis for setting the base sheet.Of which the height and width in the room, the number of cut strips depends;
  • prepared strips are fastened to the wall.The distance between them should be 50-60 cm. Each strip should be checked with a spirit level.The adhesive should be applied on the strip, starting from the base surface roughness.In some places, the mixture will need a little bit on the other need to put a thick layer of adhesive;
  • Plasterboard need to be glued to the beacons only after complete solidification of the glue on the strips.Mounted large sheets with glue, which was used during the installation of beacons.You can use liquid nails.The latter will cost more than the glue.

Installing drywall on the mounting foam

Before installing drywall on a base surface, it is necessary to thoroughly clean the wall of wallpaper, paint plaster residues.Wall desirable to cover the primer layer.

To properly attach the material to the wall, it is necessary to drill the holes.Total need to make 8-10 of openings which are evenly distributed over the entire area of ​​the drywall.

In addition, the sheet of material is necessary to glue pieces of foam.They will act as a spring - leaf will fit snugly to the wall, so it will be a place where the foam will fill.


Once the sheet is attached to the wall, through the holes you need to make a mark on the wall.In marked points is necessary to drill holes in which to insert the plastic anchors.

Carefully set the sheet and verify the installation level.Screws can be adjusted for vertical installation.

After the material will be attached to the wall, the foam should fill screw holes around.

They need to perform small - enough to make a hole in the cylinder tube is passed.

Do not pour foam strongly - a large amount of sealant may result in deformation of the drywall.After solidification of the composition of the screws can be turned out, and opening them shpaklyuyut.

Videos in this article will tell you how to pour the foam between the plasterboard and the wall.
