How to tape & joint a plasterboard wall written by Luke

Tools Needed

Plasterers Trowel or Large Filling Knife, Hawk, A Bucket, A Mixing Drill (depending on the size of the job).

Materials Needed

Sandpaper, Jointing Compound (Easi-Fill etc.), Jointing Tape.

Step 1 : Tape your Joints

Cover all your joints with either jointing tape or scrim. Depending on how your wall is, you may need corner jointing tape as well. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Step 2 : Mix your Jointing Compound

Mix up your jointing compound accordingly to how much you’ll need. If you have a large area to cover you may want to use a mixing drill.

Step 3 : Applying your Jointing Compound (1st layer)

Starting from the floor up, put some jointing compound in the middle of your application tool and apply to your groove. Make sure you only fill the groove. If you have corners, then apply it by working away from your wall. Once you have filled the groove, then firmly run your trowel up your corner removing any excess compound.

Step 4 : Applying your Jointing Compound (2nd layer)

Basically, just follow Step 3. This time run your compound over the groove, over filling by about 1-2mm.

Step 5 : Sanding Down

Using some fine sandpaper, work in a circular motion, rubbing down your joints till they are all evenly flat.
