    Default Angles - nice ones!

    Hiydi ho to all!

    Ok, I want to remove all cornices and skirting boards and square set. I have formulated a list (below) of what may be involved... Any suggestions/feedback regarding the order of conduct to help me out would be appreciated :)

    · - Remove cornice/skirting boards!
    · - Sand/clean surfaces from dust, even surfaces and check that all nail heads are not exposed.
    · -Fill gaps wider than 5mm (what filler is best to use)
    · -Aluminum external angle corner beads… at this stage or before filling?
    · -Apply a plasterers paper tape (not fiber glass tape) tape. Don not go around corners with tape, instead cut to measure
    · -Scrape back excess plasterboard jointing cement between coats
    · -Use a 3 coat system

    Lashes x
