Tapered joints


New Member
Hi I'm new to the forum ,just wondering if anyone can help
I've got a property that the plaster has boarded but he's used tapered fire board but in some areas the joint is tapered on one side and square end on the other because it's cut board
When I asked him about the difference he said you won't see it once the second coat is on
Just need to make sure this is ok
Thanks in advance

Why do people not believe what their plasterers tell them.

He is correct so no need to panic or worry.

Only two sides of a board are tapered so it’s inevitable it will happen somewhere, he is a plasterer not a magician

Should be fine mate , chill and enjoy the ride , can I ask did the plasterer have a new board lifter and look a bit dodgy?
