Plaster and plasterboard shortages have restricted homebuilding projects for months, but the easing of lockdown has led to a return in supplies - and this is very good news for self builders and renovators.

Builders’ merchants and DIY stores have been open in some capacity for a number of weeks now, but plasterboard has proved elusive for many. Some suppliers including Buildershop have run out of stock, while others such as Jewson have only had limited stock for weeks.
