Does Knauf Joint Filler and tape need unibond applied to it before the job/boards are skimmed over?
Because I dont want to sand the joints and screw heads down. I would have to apply a second amount of filler to screwheads and sand all 180 m2. The time would be huge so to speed things along I thought I would ask for a skim price.If the joints have already been taped & filled why are skimming the whole wall?
Cheers for this. i had decided to spray water on joints filler before plasterer arrives. I did ask Knauf last week..........heard nowt..........must still be on hols?I’ve been skimming a room today I taped before Christmas, no need to pva doesn’t suck in hardly at all but that’s using the bg gyproc joint filler. Haven’t used knauf.
I have written earlier regards this but here you go.
180m2 of boards which will have to be filled again (2nd time - screws) then all sanded down (180m2 - 60+ boards and lots of internal corners) ............and no doubt touched up in places with filler. Mess = Unbelievable. Price for skimming while I am able to do other work.................suits me just fine.
Probably Steve after all I did it and I am shite at everything...................What are you good at besides disagreeing or finding fault with everything I say or do?
8'x4' or 2400x1200 with recess on long side edges. No recess on long end edges of boards.
That is correct and damaged edge boards which mysteriously find their way into the middle of the bale..........so good job they invented filler?If yo have bevelled edge plasterboard, then it has a drylining side which is recessed and a skimming side which isn't.
The two don't match up particularly well. I did a job a couple of years ago where the guy had filled flush board joints...it was a fuckign nightmare - he'd totally confused drylining and skimming, so now I have to plaster his BFO lumpy joints that he's filled with scrimtape so it couldn't even be sanded properly.
