Hi, can I use paper tape over plasterboard joints on new kitchen extension, then plaster skim over
No a fibre tape must be used.
Post your job & get responses from local tradespeople. Read reviews before you decide to hire.
Better to use scrim tape. Doesn't cost much more & much easier to fix as it is self sticky
Yes if they are tapered boards if not use scrim tape
No! Skrim tape over joints before plastering.
better using a scrim tape, that what its designed for.
For best results use self adhesive fibre tapes. Paper tape tends to blow off.
You can use paper tape on joints if you are to fill over the top with easy fill. Also bearing in mind the plaster board is tappered rather than straight edge.
yes you can but it is better grid
No wouldn't recommend it better with white scrim
Best to use scrim tape. Sometimes you can yes but it's not the best
Yes you can.the tapes basically there to cover the joints for the plaster go grip to
Better way to use a self sticky tape wich made from fibre. Thanks
I am afraid you must use scrim/plasterboard tape to all the joins before plastering.
no please dont do it. it will fall off soon after drying up.
you need proper skimming mesh tape for this purpose.
I would recommend not using paper tape but use the mesh scrim tape instead as it allows for more flexibility and not prone to splitting like paper tape. I always us FibaTape as it is highly adhesive so sticks well.
Yes can you use paper for joints.it's specific paper.
It would be better to use fibre tape, known as scrim to cover crack then unibond and skim. Paper tape is not good quality and is mainly used for artex or drylining, but does occasionally lift.
No, as its paper the water content in the plaster will soak into the paper tape and bubble up and in some cases come away from the plasterboard.
Ideally you want to be using scrim tape before plastering. Jointing tape may make your Plasterers life difficult if not done correctly.
Hi I would use scrim the plaster will take better.
Yes this can be done to prevent cracking due to joint movement
Yes that's no problem although scrim tape is easier ad it's self adhesive
Best useing skrim tape on boards if you are plastering it. If you are useing paper tape you are best to go over it with easy fill and then a layer of joint cement the then sand it down and then primer for painting .hope that helps cheers eddie
the best way use scrim tape over plasterboard joints
then plaster skim over
No,use the correct scrim tape.
You wouldn't need to as if you tape and joint it,using papperd or scrim tape,3 applications of filler and then a good sand back followed by a mist coat
Hi. I would use scrim tape for plasterboard as it has a sticky adhesive plus it strengthens the joints . Dont use paper tape
