Drywall over textured plaster

Will 1/4 drywall be good enough to go over existing textured plaster walls?  Do I need to find the studs or will the plaster hold it?  Thanks

Hi Jim1965,

 

1/4 inch drywall will work fine, I would recommend you locate the studs and screw the drywall into place.

 

Just driving the screws into the plaster will not make for a secure wall.

 

We sell a stud finder designed for plaster walls; it will detect studs in walls up to 11/2 inch thick. The link is below.

 

Mike,
