Question:

How to identify the my wall (concrete, plasterboard etc)?

H guys,Looking to mount an LCD onto a wall but wondering the best way to identify what material the wall is? Are there easy way to test?Thanks in advance!!

Answer:

the age of the home should tell you that. If its an older home you'll mostly likely have lath and plaster, if its newer .. it'll definitely be drywall. The best way to be certain is to take off a wall switch and inspect the walls them self. You can usually look at a corner inside a wall switch. Btw, if you hand the anchors for the lcd tv into studs it wont matter what kind of walls you got. Use a stud finder.

Try removing a cover from an electric outlet or switch, may be able to see what the wall is constructed from. Most likely drywall attached to 2 X 4 studs if it is an interior wall.
