Hiya boys. Im Gary Cheeseman from 1st Choice Plastering. Just wondering if anyone else thinks board finish is sub standard of late. Either seems gloopy like its been mixed with pva instead of water or goes off like a whippet? Or is it just me overthinking it?

Welcome :D

@BritishGypsum are on here.... but the advice is if you have a s**t bag take a photo of it with the batch numbers and what not and then it can be traced back etc

Thanks. I've read some threads similar on here and they never seem to admit to any additives for some reason. But it's obvious they do. I mean whats the big secret ?Why not admit it? It's like the cover up is worse than the crime. I'm thinking they add calcium sulphate or similar to speed up the set for the colder months but someones added just a touch too much. Oh well. Will just have to get used to it

Welcome along bud. Is that your real name? I only ask because I went to school with a Gareth Cheeseman . I bought a palet of board this week , Monday skimmed over bg board ... horrible. Teared up on second pass..hard to judge timing just crap. Tuesday Wednesday used same gear overskimming existing walls. Was bloody lovely. Today different job , crap again . All same palet. Very inconsistent

Ah, Gareth Cheeseman went to QEM in Carmarthen in the 80s. Rare name indeed.
