Buy Drylining Plastering Tools Online

Whether you’re a professional plasterer or a DIY enthusiast with a plastering job that needs doing, chances are at some point, you’ll be looking to buy drylining plastering tools online.

As you will doubtless be aware, dry lining is a popular method in the plastering industry, where you cover a background surface with a plaster substitute. Like traditional plastering, it is a necessary process in construction and building maintenance, because masonry, block and brickwork are not as smooth and do not give as aesthetically pleasing a finish as plaster.

When you are dry lining, you might fit plasterboard or a similar material to a surface instead of a hard plaster.  Some people find it to be a preferable plastering method as it uses less water and needs less technical expertise than traditional plastering.

If you have a specific job on the cards and are looking to buy drylining plastering tools online, then Gypsumtools has a huge range of products that could help you get up to the level five drywall finish that you need.

Drylining tools can include the right trowel, knife, hammer, screwdriver and screws, saw and rasp.


When choosing a trowel, for instance, you might want to consider the length and width of the trowel you need for the job. Would you prefer a cork, soft or wooden handle? What makes are the most efficient and likely to help you get the job done cleanly and quickly?

There are several types of knife that can be useful when drylining too, such as the utility knife, taping knife, or jointing knife. It’s important to have the right kit when you start your job, so which ones would you need to get it done? The same applies with the type of hammer – whether a drywall or nail hammer is what you need, or both.


When you’re buying your drylining plastering tools online, have a browse through our extensive range of products and bear in mind the dry lining material you are using, to assess which screws and screwdriver will be most effective.

Our plastering tools can be delivered on site, within 24 hours if ordered by 12pm. We can also offer free delivery for purchases over £50, as well as confidence in the added protection of secure shopping, fast shipping and track and trace parcel delivery.

Whether it’s online or at our Leicester trade counter, Gypsumtools stock a vast range of level five tools for your drylining needs.
