    Default Fiba tape nightmare

    Real-Debrid

    used wall 2 wall fiba tape in a 4 bed house,its a yellow bag with green writing,absolute nightmare,edges showing through my 10 inching,only way i could think of to hide it was to cover with paper tape.other 4 guys that work with us are having the same problem.

    one of my mates is using cheap shite that his subbie supplies, apparently after about 2 rooms it starts falling off the walls and ceilings so he has to do one or two joins then come behind straight away with the joint filler, f**k that!
