What type of tradesman should I look for to install plasterboard? Is this a job a plasterer would typically do or a builder?
Post your job & get responses from local tradespeople. Read reviews before you decide to hire.
Plasterer or builder experienced in dry lining, first fix carpentry. Important to have joists/fixings/bearings at 400mm centres to eliminate waste of plasterboard.
A plasterer knows how he likes the board fitted but labourers can normally take this on but would need to be checked so no screws are sticking out and no flappy bits of board
Any trader, handyman or dryliner could install plasterboard.
dry liner qualified make sure person uses screws to put new ceiling up
Usually both should to know how to install plasterboard.

Both should be equally competent of installing plasterboard.
You can contact a plasterer
usually the qualified pro decorator should do this ..or if yours can't you'll need to look out for a joiner, or plasterer .
Plastering should be done by a plasterer including plaster board. As this is the primary suface this goes wrong you are not going to correct it by adding plaster. There are also many types of plaster board for different situations so you need to know the right properties of each.
Plasterer or builder doesn't matter
Regarding your question, Most tradesman should be able to measure and cut plasterboard. I do it on a daily basis along with skimmed finished :) cheers
It's the plasterers job but most competent builders can do it .
Hi to fit plasterboard any interior fitter or a partitioning company it's not hard to fit you just need to no what to do and how to attack it.
Sorry I've only notice this you need a Plastera. If you need one I could supply one for you
Most plasterers are able to to put up plaster boards.
a good builder should have no problem with making such an order. Regards
A plasterer would be better but you can use both.
Depends on finish. eg. if you want a tile finish then a tiler, decorated then a painter & plasterer... either way you should have a carpenter with all round trades.
plaster if you need it skimming or joiner if you are going to be studding it out .
Hi. Plaster boarding could be done by either. Its fairly easy job
dry lining or plaster man
All plasterers should be proficient at boarding. Personally, I never enjoyed it, although did loads, especially in Belgium where staple guns had replaced use of board nails. Carpenters I find are much more adept,using cordless drills for screwing in. Pity some of them put boards too close together or leave screws sticking out...Of course, some companies use boarders and dryliners do much more than most.
