Installing Gyprock or plasterboard on walls may look an easy task, but we can assure you that it’s not that simple. If your Gyprock or plasterboard was installed incorrectly it will lead to cracks continually appearing in the walls. This means additional maintenance where it will need to be constantly scraped back, filled, flushed and sanded.
Getting a Professional Finish to Your Gyprock Wall
To achieve a professional finish, the boards ideally should be staggered in typical brick fashion and back-blocked. Doing this ensures the boards remain secure and in place and reduces the risk of movement cracks occurring.
A rough finish will increase the risk of the joins showing through, even after painting. Also, an incorrect installation will result in cracks constantly appearing in the wall. We recommend the Gyprock, once taped, is flushed tightly and followed with a light sand when dry. This guarantees that once painted you will have a smooth professional finish.
Extra tip: When using Gyprock adhesive, remember to put enough on and distribute evenly. But not too much that it is dripping off.
