How to Hang Drywall on a Brick WallBy: Danny Lipford
If you have an interior brick wall in your home that’s unsightly, you might want to cover it up with drywall. To hang drywall on a brick surface:
- Start by measuring and cutting the first piece.
- Add evenly spaced globs of drywall compound to the back of the drywall. The compound will act as an adhesive to hold the wall in place.
- Place the drywall on the brick surface and use masonry nails driven into the mortar to hold the sheet in place until the compound dries.
- Once the drywall compound has set, finish the job like you would any drywall by using joint compound and tape to cover joints and nail holes.
