This guide outlines some options to repairing existing wall linings and guidelines for when to replace a sheet or larger area of lining.
General wear and tear in a house often results in damage to interior wall linings. Damage can range from repairable (a picture hook pulled out or a door handle through the wall) to the catastrophic (a major leak or structural failure).
Prefinished linings (such as melamine-faced boards) are not included in this guide.
