    A builder supplied some similar tape on a job recently and the weave was so tight the finish was barely touching the plasterboard through it so we binned it.

    Plasterers get less money

    Personally I don't do any work for someone elses rates or day rates. I have done in the past when working on sites and earnt good money but have worked hard to build up local business without paying any advertising or checkabuilder fees.

    Plasterers get less money

    I find that people and builders local to me will pay for quality and reliability . Also plenty of house bashers making good money.

    I've never used these boards but would it worth plasterboarding the ceiling first (after the battens)to maximise surface for adhesion ?

    Vimark plastex GB 1

    No , wet down remix. The plasterboard bits went off quick enough, the re-skim was 4mm to match in existing so hung around a bit I'd say.

    plasterboard oak beam affect.

    We pulled a load down a few years back , we thought it was timber until we started . Really clever stuff done by a film set plasterer
