In the quest to produce the elusive perfect finish for interior linings, many varying techniques and systems are applied, unfortunately to no avail. All that can reasonably be achieved and/or expected is a general appearance of flatness witha strong reliance on the use of a favourable paint system and application, combined with a complementary lighting system. or many years now we have witnessed a growing trend towardslarger residences all competing for individuality with their adventurous designs.These subtle experiments in geometry,although aesthetically pleasing in therecontribution to the overall appearance andpresentation, are responsible for the creation of many problems for the plasterer.They are given the task of providing theexpected finish along with a level andplumb substrate to an industry faced withthe need to continuously monitor and control construction costs combined with a reduction in the availability of quality timber.   Plasterboard Jointing 3 F  4 lasterboard is amaterial with varyingtextures and porositythat is presentedto aseries of conditions that willultimately exaggerate thosevariables. The jointed systemis in most cases handapplied and therefore somevariation in the finished surface is inevitable, therebyproducing the same type ofirregularitiesthat one wouldexpect in any hand madeproducts.Although a flat unblemishedfinish is the common requirement, this is notalways possible, particularlywith current building designand technology. No matter how flat a surfacemay appear, there willalways be some slight undulations and deviationsfrom true flatness.Acceptance of this surfacecan and will vary dependinglargely on an owners perception and/or lightingconditions which may varyfrom night to day. Plasterboard Jointing Some difficulties arise when trying to describe what theappearance of a completed ceiling should be like. Spare athought for the conscientiouscontractor who strives toachieve what he believes to bethe industry standard, only tofind after the completion ofpainting he is confronted by anirate owner commenting:- P “ No nail pops or joints were showing in my last house” “ The ceiling in the display home did not look like this.”
