    Default im new to this taping and jointing


    I have only ever done one or to small taping and jointing jobs on my own, i am more experieced in skimming but i am starting a new job tomorrow and the man says he wants a full coat a day. Can someone tell me if this means he wants 1 coat a day and sanded?? Any other tips you may have would also be appreciated.

    thanks

    A little more info about the job would be handy to know. If you would like some advice.

    Hi Conor welcome to the forum.
    I agree with butterfly , 1 coat per day. But hey, who is "the man" ? If he knows so much about taping then let him get on with it. Who is he to tell you how to do the job? If you can do more than 1 coat a day then good luck to ya. He knows bu**er all and dont let him tell ya how to do your job.

    Agree with EK. "Dont tell yer granny how tae huv bairns" is a popular saying around here.
