    Default Jointing advice please

    Hi all, I,m after some jointing advice as I do very little of it and mostly small areas. I have a 60m2 shop ceiling to do and was wondering whether to use the traditional 3 coat method with BG joint filler and then top it with quicksand, or maybe try and use 2 coats of Easifill and get done a bit quicker. I,m concerned about tape showing through on the butt joins with only 2 coats and whether there's a different technique required with 2 coating? I've always filled the "scallop" tight with my first coat then filled the shrinkage with the second, then feathered the top coat out to about 14 inches (the width of my skimming trowel)
    Anything I should be doing different with Easifill ? or my 3 coat method for that matter?
    Many thanks in advance.

    i've done the two coat easi fill but always feel I'm cheating so end up skimming it out with cement anyway! As Dillon says, stick to what you know. It won't be long drying in the summer anyway
