Gib stopping disasters are much more common that you may think……you can ask any builder they will tell you that let that less than one in four Gib stoppers produce a worthwhile gib board finish, let alone a good reliable service.
To help homeowners avoid gib stopping disasters we have published this from our training manual for gib stopping for interior plasterers and gib stopper supervisors, based on ASNZ 25809:2007 for Plasterboard Installation and according to Winstone gib board recommendations.
A Gib stopper (interior plasterers) may be very experienced this is no guarantee that things are done correctly the only guarantee is correct gib stopping procedure backed by a guarantee from a reputable company. While a lone ranger my be very good but the odds are stacked against this (trust me all Gib stoppers believe they are)
We note that almost none of these items are not currently covered under Auckland building inspections and many are commonly overlooked by experienced fixers, gib stoppers, builders let alone home owners.
