    really starting to get on my nerves some of these jobs we get landed with "steel plastering beads" they are crap! for plastering. they cause many problems! nailed into timber studs that are dried to 12 or 15% moisture content that then get to the merchants and lay about in the pi**ing rain and soak up all that water.

    You are not the only one with this problem brother . I go through the same B/S on this side of the pond. It's kiln dry timber.... but from the kiln to the site Is a different story.
    But then ..that's not there fault..It's ours..[smile]

    Metal Stud, end of problem. Agree about the caulking, however if I was running a partition into an exterior wall I would caulk the internal with overpaintable intumescent firestem. I believe this is a BG detail.

    then get slapped into place and plasterboard screwed to it then....... mugs go nailing plastering beads into the still packed with moisture studs and skim it with filler etc. studs dry out a few months later since the beads nailed into the timber stud start moving and filler cracking. (instead of using external steel paper tape designed to stop this as its on the boards not into the timber with nails) and the paint flakes off them. emulsion dosnt stick.

    then the lazy cowboy gimps who use decorators caulk in all the internal corners. i dont think this is acceptable at all. mainly as it can shrink and its flexable and doing absolutly no good for the plasterboarding or the finishing." WHY WHY WHY WHY DO IT???"

    paper tapes in the externals gives added strenth straighter lines better finish easier to paint and get a proper finish not to mention (caulk) when joiners put the skirtings on it bursts!!! where as paper tape wouldnt unless joiners timbers too long.

    might get hate for this but if your caulking and not paper taping your internals YOUR A COWBOY!!

    Did you mean to spell 'Grammar' incorrectly?
