Should I put Plasterboard on Plywood Pipe Boxing?

Postby Thediygirl » Wed Oct 21, 2015 6:03 am

Hi there. I'm starting to box around some pipes in my flat on Thursday and wondered if I need to put plasterboard on top of the plywood? The boxing I removed was just 5.5mm plywood but one of the builders I know told me that I should also put plasterboard on top? Is that really necessary?

Thanks a lot!
