    Default Installing VJ boards

    Hi,

    This is my first post so please be patient.
    I am wanting to install VJ boards to go about 1050mm up the wall. The panels are MDF panels and are quite cheap. There is old plaster that I am replacing.

    I was wondering if I should attach the panels straight to the wall studs(with noggins between the studs) and place the skirts over the panels, installing new plaster above the panels with a decorative wainscot in between.

    Or


    Should I plaster the whole wall and place the skirts on the plaster with the panels placed above the skirts with the panels attached on top of the plaster.

    Thanks in advance

    Option 1 sound the best to me, clean and sound method.
    A good edge takes a little sweat!!

    best to sit the plaster on top of the panelling not over it.. you would have to get a rebatted midrail to cover if you did. also when you hit a doorway and have to put up some architrave it would be 10mm offset.. vj is only 9mm so almost a perfect match for plasterboard.
