    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

    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.
    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

    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!

    holy shit-its kinda funny its so bad and white is a forgiving colour. Surely that was painted over before it was sanded and even at that its still shocking!

    That sheeting is shokin. I hate the way we are expected to just get on with it blocking out while the golden boy joiners throw things up

    Upon closer inspection you are correct. It was taped by hand and has never saw a sheet of sandpaper.
