Question:

Will drywall adhesive stick a plasterboard to surfaces other than stone?

I have some plasterers doing some work in my kithchen at the moment, and i've just had the kitchen damp proffed with injection and a roll of bitchumen membrane up to approx a metre high all round the kitchen. The plasterers have told me that the dry wall won't stick to the bitchumen membrane, so have suggested putting up a stud frame all round the kitched so that they can screw the plasterboards to the new stud frame!! Is this really necessary?? Does plasterboarding with dry wall adhesive really not stick to sheet roll's of bitchumen?? Also, they have also told me that you can't drywall with foil back boards as the adhesive won't stick to the foil....is this also true???Many thanks

Answer:

i suggest calling another drywall company in your area that is familiar with the materials in your area. from the sounds of it you maybe in Germany, aka Bitchumen is not something I am aware of in the USA

plasterboard or sheetrock is not glued to any backing. It must be nailed or screwed onto a frame. never heard of the adhesive way.
