    Default Lining paper

    drywallschool.com

    I am new to this site. A man i met who worked at a large DIY warehouse recommended I wallpaper over taping with heavy grade lining paper to hide any trowel marks, scratches and hide any flashing. Taper said just to paint it, man in the store says something else even thouh im a painter and know better? WTF? Wont this defeat the purpose?

    Answered you own question, it does defeat the purpose. Guy in the shop doesn't have ahigh opinion of tapers or he hasnt a clue.
    Go with what the taper said. If it is full of scracthes and trowel marks, which I doubt, then fill them, sand, and paint as usual. The same finish, less the lining paper time and costs.
    Jesus loves you........ everyone else thinks you're an arsehole.

    Happened to me once, there were no scratches, trowel marks and it was smooth as a pool table, a 3 coat high quality finish just perfect for painting. The client kept changing his mind and must have spoke to the same guy from the store that you did. I heard through the grapevine, that he papered it himself and made an arse of it.

    I took offence at that considering I had used over 2 bags of bonding backfilling the cracks in the plasterboard in a 3 bedroom house. Some were wide enough to park my car in.

    You know who you are!

    You've just given me an idea. A Horror stories forum or thread would make a great read, wouldn't it?
