    There is no difference in taping fire board to say wall board. Why dont you get a taper in just to do the taping.


    Edit

    Just a thought......your not talking about fire taping or smoke taping are you because thats different again, pretty much just covering the joints with paper tape.

    As I said its the same as taping any other board, IF your asking me how to do that it will take a bit more time and space than we have here, If your a plasterer then you might as well skim it, which is why I got to thinking you might have meant smoke taping. I carnt imagine any one objecting to skimming for the same price as T&J.

    If its just fire-taping then 1 coat of joint filler does the trick, tape as normal with mesh tape 1st. Angle tapes, one coat joint cement.
