    Evening, I fitted them at 90 degrees to the trusses (so 5 rows of screws in each full board)

    Seems like this has gone massively off point, in my original post I hoped that I had made it clear that I don't care whether he is at fault or not, just wanted some advice/feedback on my method of resolving the issue and a few responders seem to get a tad defensive. If 600mm centres requires...

    *sigh* of course a plasterer could never be at fault... plasterers are 100% perfect at all times - sorry if you thought that I suggested otherwise Anyway back on track, I'm not sure I ever asked for opinions on who's fault it was - I was asking for some advice as to how to move forward...

    its a bold statement to say its nothing to do with the plasterer when you dont know him or haven't seen the work (not saying it is but nobody can 100% say for sure). To answer your questions: - I got told I used too many screws (always have done) - boards were nice and tight - No gaps As...

    He was very quick to dismiss that he could possibly be at fault. I have paid him in full as the walls were good that he did and for the sake of a few hundred quid I cant be doing with hassle when I can neither prove of disprove it was him. Undecided but I would probably use someone else in order...
