    Kitchen. Using aquacheck. Do I need to tape and coat before tiling. Do I have to put an expansion joint in the tiles if I donít tape and coat joints.

    Not sure why the need for aquacheck in the kitchen? However under tiles the normal is to tape and set the joint with basecoat, do not finish with topcoat.

    I just thought it’s good for tiles and water resistant . Damp house too. But yeah I’d hate to have to redo tiles from water damaging gyprock I dunno I chose it cos 10mm rather than villaboard. Can people just tile straight onto regular gyprock?

    As long as the room is not a wet area then regular plasterboard is all that is required.
    Kitchens are usually regular plasterboard and often tiled for splash backs.
    If the aquacheck is already up it won’t hurt, just not required.

    Thanks droog. Yeah aqua check already upb

    read th gyprock manual.

    level 3 finish tape and 2nd coat for tiling and to use wet area base coat.

    so will do that.

    I’ve over driven a few screws. Have to use impact cos hardwood framing is sooo hard. Will get a dimpler bit and see if that helps in the impact.
