    Default Ames taping drying times.


    so after reading something rather amusing id just like to ask round you pros and see about drying times etc on new boarding problems and what not?
    how long does your fillers take to set ready for sanding without the aid of heaters and heating in place. whats the longest your fillers taken to set? whats the usual/uncommon drying times and reasons?

    Have replied to this in the thread it started in. Winter can take over 7 days with no help.

    Well over 7+ days and thats a menace if you dont have another plot to move to. Damp plasterboard and timber doesnt help either so use dehumidifiers wherever you can. Its amazing how much moisture they suck out the building.

    i find that the readymix stuff ( gtec, speedline) dries faster than the powder gear, it still takes a few days without heaters though and the green mr boards are a nightmare
