Can I put plasterboards up on exposed brickwork inside the kitchen, using Dot and Dab? All the plaster has crumbled into dust and only the external brick walls are left.And does anything need to be in-between the plasterboard and the brickwork for insulation?
Is it acceptable to put plasterboards up behind the new combi boiler we are having installed and will it hold the weight? Or do I need to traditionally plaster it? I'd prefer to dry wall if possible...
and does the plasterboards need to be waterproof AND fire resistant?
Yes you can fit and dap the new plaster board and also behind the new boiler just apply a lots of board adhesive or you can use bonding and then skimm

For cover the bricks need use the dot dab ...but apply direct the plasterboard after fix on the wall. Not need nothing between the wall . On the local for fix combil boiler put the wood for fix good ...need the plasterboard fire resistance... after u fix pass plaster
Firstly you will need to clear the wall from loose debris and dust , then , using blue grit or pva and sand ( to give u a sealed surface and a good substrate to enable dot and dab ) .
You should use green plasterboard and Dry wall adhesive ensuring , behind the boiler , you make the dabs solid to enable drilling and hanging.
Yes, that's standard practice to dot and dab on bricks.
Plasterboard is not designed for carrying heavy loads.
