Spotted this morning by my eagle eyed wife at Edinburghs Sick Kids Hospital. This is a finished wall and Im really beginning to wonder why I cant find a decent job when theres cowboys leaving a jobsite in this condition?

Wanted dead or alive for crimes to plasterboard.

Im gonna take the digital camera for the kids next appointment and replace those with clearer pics. If that wall was laid on the floor, I swear you would think it was a speedbump. Who in their right mind would pass that surface as ok for decoration?

I'm on the iPhone and can't make out what I'm looking at, but
hazard a guess it's a tape that hasn't been feathered out?
with edges. Clerk must of been blind or taking a backhanded

A friend of mine who has been machine jointing since I knew him in the 80s
said that when he did any hospital or medical work, the agent or clerk would check the work with a halogen lamp, and that was back in the 80s
That looks bloody awful, even when I was learning I made a better job than that

well if i remember back about 5-6 years ago i was with a company doing flats for students think it was about 60 or 70 flats and everyone on the site was getting away with murder.

i asked the boss of the company i was with then "why they wernt sanding the bits the tapers hadnt sanded" and he said " oh that dosnt matter " so i questioned his reply and he said "on big jobs like this you get away with alot the clerk here lets alot slip on these big jobs "

a lot of these rooms & flats were a mess the tapers on site gave up taping and all of a sudden boxes and boxes of painter mate were showing up on the site. they were taping the flats and externals & using stacks of painters mate in the internals. it was ruff.

just wonder what it looks like now? probably falling apart?

Note the 2 sheets of 12.5mm plasterboard that makes this gap one inch wide at that point and no good to man nor beast. Have seen this happen many times when the drywall is fitted before the windows.

Steve, you know what to do, tell the Agent that your not touching it until it's put right, after a couple of jobs like that the Agent will start getting peed off, especially as it's now holding his job up.
They'll either get their marching orders or get their act together

Actually, in that second picture, not that you should half to do this, but,,,,,,,,, A can of foam insulation in a can, will fix that up fairly fast. Faster than mixing up some quick set. It's also good if you got some drywall that moves or something, (no backing) Just fill the cavity, and it can act as a backer. Or if you have some big gaps in your angles/internals. It's not something I do all the time, because I'm spoiled, I follow behind some very excellent rockers. Just throwing something out there for everyone to think about:cool:

"AH ITS ALRIGHT THE TAPER/PAINTER WILL FIX IT"

bit like skirtings and facings also. surely they shouldnt get to touch plasterboarding unless they are neat?

other thing i love about joiners........ autofeed screwdrivers with depth gauge :) how they leave us thousands of screws to go round" putting home......"

one day i questioned an a**hole joiner and asked "how the hell dont you put the screws home?" the reply i got was "i dont know how the depth gauge works it dosnt seem to work"

i played with his autofeed driver for about a min..... and bammmmm sorted. instruction manuals come with tools for a reason. but the tools dont seem to be able to read them. muppppppppppets!

Jesus! some of this stuff is shocking! Id sack the c.#*ts off my sites for leaving stuff like that. I do a lot of my own boarding and taping and i never leave my work like that and dont expect any of my subbies to either. Im one of thos old fashioned blokes that doesnt pay for shoddy work. Those blokes should be told to sort it of feck off site. They would be if they worked for me! As to those mitres in the ally bead, i think he cut those with his grannies old set of falsies!

indeed but if you paid someone good money to come in and board out your house and they didnt fill that 2-3" gap at the bottom (or even top as it was getting coving) stuff that man blowing a howler from the solum up through that gap from behind your skirtings? ive seen programs in canada and america where they actually silicone the bottoms of the sheets to the flooring to stop drafts then they also sealed the bottom of the skirtings to the chipwood flooring :) kinda makes sense but boarding in the uk or scotland is just a mess anyway i think its actually become an apprentiship? or a big course anyway?

well wetrooms gets sealed with a rubbery membrane anyway to prevent water getting through so yano? i dont really see wet rooms being done with plasterboard its usually the heavy cement boaring with the membrane on top :) lol

well wetrooms gets sealed with a rubbery membrane anyway to prevent water getting through so yano? i dont really see wet rooms being done with plasterboard its usually the heavy cement boaring with the membrane on top :) lol


then dont pay them till your happy ;)

TBH Scotty I really dont know where your coming from, If you put skirtng on thats just the same as boarding down to the floor and if you leave a gap at the top which is later coved thats the same thing again. If you particulary didnt want gaps top or bottom then you should have said before hand and used 2.7 board, Im not condoning the rest of the work it looks shoddy but gaps top and bottom to me dont make a difference.

2.7 board? WHATS THAT LOL? never seen anything in my life other than 2400 x 1200 :) id understand leaving like a 5-10mm gap between the boaring and the floor incase of shrinkage in the timber and what not but not almost 3" lol just a bit job and knock or half assed job hmm no pride in their work :)

I agree 3" is a bit big and hard to fix skirting too, It didnt look that much from the pictures. Any way did you get over it.

well it was a relatives house and it was there relative who boarded it i think it was taking the piss a bit. but some people just dont give a shit and some of us care a bit too much?

say you went to board your grannys or cousins house would u leave that? and on the other hand if it was another relative who boarded it and you had to tape it? how would you look at it? lol

External obtuse angle is a hard one to get right I all ways think but still who ever should have seen that before it got to paint stage.

would be surprised if taper or painter left it like that,typical of the shit flex tape we get now,you can put it on and it looks fine for a while then some of it blows.

Nope. On closer inspection it looked like very thin cheap crap though.

Good luck with that one. Maybe try trim tex magic corner or the ridgid adjustable inside offset bead.
Looks like some magic will be required!!

Surprisingly not, DMC! It was a small attic conversion in Hamilton.
So small I couldn't stand up in it!
