What is Taping & Jointing
Taping and Jointing is a trade designed for bringing plasterboard up to a standard that is ready for professional snag free decoration.
It was originally designed as an alternative to plastering. The basic difference between plastering and Taping and Jointing, is that when plastering an area we would apply tapes to all the joints in the boards. Then we would skim coat the whole surface of the plasterboard with plaster. If taping and jointing the same area, we would still tape all the joints then we would apply 3 coats of jointing compound to the joints only. Once these are dry we sand down the jointing compound to a perfect smooth surface.

The “Taping & Jointing” is designed to give you seamless jointing of tapered edge plasterboards and can be used on all flat, internal and external corner joints. It is a great alternative to plastering because it is much more time and cost effective.
The technique for tape & jointing includes the application of special jointing tape over the join of a flat or internal corner. Two coats of joint filler and a finishing coat of joint cement, which gives the joints a smooth, seamless finish. The result is a flat drywall ready to be painted.
Benefits of this process, compared with plastering, include speed and cleanliness because material is only applied to joints, which is a fraction of the material that is commonly used in plastering. Another added benefit is that tapers & jointers can work on a site at the same time as other tradesmen, another reason why projects can be competed more quickly.
