Fixing Kitchen Units to Walls After Boarding and Plastering


Postby mika_98 » Sun Jul 19, 2015 12:59 am

Hi all,

I am planning on doing some work in the kitchen/bathroom and it’s possible that there are some slight damp issues. I plan on getting the issue treated and then either plaster straight onto the wall or use plaster or MR boards/batons.

If I go down the board route, I want to ensure I have a solid base on which to attach the units, suite, etc. A friend has suggested to use moisture resistant plywood but my concern is:
- Will it eventually soak up moisture and then cause further issues?
- Are there any other suggestions on materials or ideas for creating a solid mounting surface?

Any advice would be greatly appreciate :D
Many thanks!

Hi

You can indeed use moisture resistant plywood but we would also suggest that you treat everything with the following product: http://www.diydoctor.org.uk/DIY-superst ... litre.html - You will need to keep windows and doors open as this is some pokey stuff!!

Other than that, the next thing to look at is really using plastic boards etc….

Hope this helps
