Utter shiite. Ran out of my normal BG stuff on Saturday, so picked up a roll at B&Q on the way home. Half the length and twice the price. Tried to use it yesterday and it's like bog roll. I ripped it to shreds with my rol-plow. Crazy thing is, the instructions say let it soak in water for 5 mins, which I of course didn't do as it would have fallen apart in my hands before it even touched the wall. Binned it and luckily Leyland dropped some of my normal tape out to me mid morning.

Never tried B&Q tapes but I cant fault them for Gyproc for coving prices. Half the price of Keyline

their paint is worse than woolworths value paint used to be lol! 50 coats later and you still see plasterboard...... welcome to the designer world of transparent paints lol its the fools who buy it! id never use it refuse to use crown paint aswell as the coverage is crap! matchmaker & dulux all the way :D same with the drywall primers and crap...... you dont need expencive crappy drywall paints and primers..... 2 coats of matchmaker or dulux does the job :D
