Getting a flat wall over sloppy cinderblock
I am remodeling a kitchen in a townhome with a cinderblock party wall that has sloppy masonry work. Previous efforts in another remodeling project to attach furring strips to the cinderblock was less than fully successful. A friend suggested I use resilent channel strips on the theory that their give would absorb some of the variation in the flatness of the cinderblock. I intend to cover the wall with 1/2 plywood since I will be attaching cupboards to the wall, so I also have to worry about the ability of the wall to support the cabinets. Does anyone have any other suggestions on how to tackle this problem?
