Wall Straightness

Older homes often have different degrees of timber frame, or stud, movement. This movement causes bulges in walls. These bulges are quite often noticable under wooden windows. While these bulges are not usually too visible, they will not be cured by skim coat plastering. Wall skimming, or skim coat plastering, serves to return the surface of the plasterboard to a smooth finish.

Gib Fixing

Better Painters does not provide gib board fixing, except to repair damage to walls.
Gib, or plasterboard, must be installed correctly. More often than not, we are confronted by poor fixing practices. Some of the most common include lack of glueing, incorrect screws, failure to observe light fall guidelines, failure to correctly install around openings and using too many short pieces to save money. Unfortunately this is not limited to DIY.
Better Painters gib stoppers are good enough to overcome most of these problems. We will advise of any potential problems, in terms of visibility or longevity
