Posted By: evanI saw on youtube were American, and they all use the boards horizontally. It never occurred to me to do that, I have always seen boards being placed long-way-up.Why is that, are there any advantages or differences?
Posted By: reefrayTo be honest I'm not sure why. Sometimes I see joiners fitting sheets in the same manner so maybe it's a throwback from the past.
Posted By: reefrayTo get the desired fire rating for stud walls will involve the vertical fixing of plasterboard sheets so for us it's second nature.
Posted By: reefray12'x54" boards! Imagine the fun carrying those babies through a house on this side of the Atlantic! If they are standard 1/2" board that would make them about 40kgs each. Recently we were on a job using 3m long 15mm thick soundbloc board- 46 kgs each and thousands of them- no craic at all..
Posted By: reefrayThe trouble from a finishing perspective of fitting boards horizontaly is that you will end up with butt joints at 'low' level on the walls. Surely having only tapered joints vertically is a good thing
