Tape & jointing
Tape and jointing is applied by hand or machine, direct to plasterboard to cover all joints and screw holes to give a seamless finish, starting with scrimming the joints with a fibre tape. Joint filler is then applied which beds the tape in to the joint, the tape acts to stop the joints cracking. Two further coats of filler are applied, which when dry can be sanded down to give a smooth even finish across the area ready for decoration.
The latest application method of tape and jointing is to apply using a machine, where the joint cement is sprayed over the joints, this gives an even higher standard of finish.
