Technical Issues - June 2016

Painters seemed to have favoured spraying out residential houses with the majority not back rolling or sealing the plasterboard first, which is leading to fingers being pointed at plasterers as the slightest imperfection is highlighted due the paint being so thin and two coats on in one day is making the plasterboard so wet that the screw holes are shrinking back, causing a lot of issues especially as we are coming into winter. The Association has been providing information and support about acceptable levels of finish, correct painting practices, and trade guidelines around this ongoing issue.
