    Hi all,

    Wondering if I could get some assistance. Got some work going on in the bathroom. We've got a fitter in who's put some plasterboard up back-to-front. On the board it has clearly printed, "Plaster other side only".

    The rest of the information says "standard wall board type-a" made by knauf.

    Usually, I wouldn't have a problem but since its going into a bathroom around a shower area, is it going to be problem to plaster over the top and should i insist on having it corrected? Or has it has been intentionally put up this way.

    Would appreciate any help.

    Hi all, ignore my post.

    I should've searched before posting as I've noticed other people have posted similar questions and got mixed responses... Still trawling through them before I speak to the fitter.

    Cheers.

    I should've mentioned it earlier but it will be skimmed and tiled on top.
