Once the installation of a plasterboard partition is complete, it is important to take great care with finishing tasks, especially those of angles and joints. Sloppy or sloppy work could have aesthetically disastrous consequences when dressing.

Finishing the joints between the plasterboards

The joints between the plasterboards are to be made using a filler. They are usually done in three layers. The first layer is applied from top to bottom, using a coating knife, and making sure to fill in the holes left by the screw heads. A joint strip is then deposited over the entire height of the slot, which is covered with a second layer of plaster. Finally, a third layer completely covers the bowl formed by the two edges of the plasterboard. After drying, a light sanding (then dusting) will smooth out any snags, before moving on to the dressing.

Finishing the angles between the plasterboards

The angles are to be finished in the same way as the joints. The joint tape must however be folded in half along its length before being deposited. This task can be laborious, especially since the folding must be regular. Finally, to reinforce salient angles, it is recommended to insert between two layers of plaster angles provided for this purpose. Found in all DIY stores, they will protect the new partition from knocks and guarantee it a longer service life.
