The use of plasterboard adhesive in DIY projects is widely accepted. It can be cost effective and time saving. Follow mixing instructions carefully and remember to use the paste on approved surfaces only. For example, there are plasterboard adhesives which are not suitable on areas where there is high humidity. It is also not recommended to fill holes to cover humid areas in an attempt to improve insulation. In other cases, plasterboard adhesives are complemented with nails and screws to stabilise and secure surfaces.
