Another week and all the boarding will be done one the new shower room I'm
working on. Last time I did any drylining I used EasiFill to skim the joints
and it did make life "Easi" (cringe...). I also used finishing plaster in
parts and found this much harder work, plus it didn't sand very well.
Anyone got any alternatives to the rather expensive Easifill?
Actually this is for the toilet cubicles and ceiling (5x4m), the 4 showers
will be boarded with that plastic cladding "stuff". Basically think of a
"shower room" in a youth hostel as opposed to a "shower".
Agree on the lack of need for plastering, butf you haven't already
done your drylining, I wouldn't use plasterboard, it's not all that
rigid or stable for tiling onto in an environment like a shower; plus
if any water does manage penetrate through to the plasterboard, it
spells disaster. Aquapanel or marine ply would be a much better bet;
a lot dearer but less risky and will last longer.
