I've never put up PB before but it's a small (8ft x 6ft) back bedroom so I'm going to try to do it myself. I'd just like to know if there's anything I need to look out for. The roof slopes up from the eaves and I'm putting up PB with a 40mm insulation backing.
you don't usually put insulated plasterboard on a ceiling, But if you want to, use a cordless drill driver and 60mm screws, don't sink the screws too deep, just below the surface of the board,and get someone to help you
I'm having a problem getting my screws into the joists. The PB is 9.5mm and there is 50mm Xtratherm insulation above it so I wanted screws that would go about 20mm into the joists - therefore 80mm long was needed. The nearest to this that I could find were "Eastdrive BZP Fine Thread Drywall 100mm" but they won't go right into the joists but leave about 20mm sticking out below the PB. Am I using the wrong screws? If so can anyone please advise on a better screw? (Using a DeWalt 18v screwdriver)
