What is blue board?
One of the fundamental questions involves an understanding of what our team does – blue board and construction. Here at KT Blue Board Plastering, we can assist in a variety of home construction services. With new construction or remodels, there is typically a need for drywall. Blue board is a type of drywall that provides homeowners ultimate protection. Designed to bond with a specially formulated plaster, blue board is a superior alternative to traditional drywall.
What’s so special about blue board?
One of the most unique features of blue board is the high water and mold resistance qualities it provides. These two features, as homeowners know, can wreak havoc. Not only can you face structural damage, but there are several health risks involved as well. However, with the utilization of blue board, you can provide an added barrier between your family and these risks.
Talk to us about veneer plaster.
As we mentioned, blue board is designed to bond with plaster. The plaster in question here is veneer plaster. Blue board drywall combined with veneer plaster offer even more beneficial, and desirable, features. For instance, veneer plaster is much harder than a regular drywall surface. Thus, it is less likely to incur holes, dents, and scratches of everyday life.
Can I paint blue board?
Yes. Unlike other drywall solutions, homeowners can paint directly over blue board with veneer plastering. However, painting veneer is not required. Many homeowners enjoy the nature off-white color of the smooth plater’s surface.
What’s the difference with installation?
Traditional drywall can be a three-day process. From hanging to the compound application, sanding, and additional applications, drywall can hold up a hot job if not adequately timed. However, with blue board installation, there is no lag in the installation time. By eliminating the need for sanding and extended drying times, blue board can be completed within a single day.
