Is tapered edge plasterboard only tapered on the long edge or is it also tapered on it's short edge? The reason I ask is I'm considering dot and dabbing over a badly damaged wall. The wall is more than 8ft high so I'm wondering if the plasterboard isn't tapered on it's short edge how do I fill in the gap. I've no intention to skim over.

B&Q only sell square edge so I need to go to Wickes in Stirling so don't fancy a 20 mile wasted trip.

It's been that long since I d&d I can't remember if the short edge is tapered.

Cheers.

Presumably if the wall is higher than 8ft and you need to join the boards vertically you'd have to skim over?

You can get 2.7 and 3m high boards fairly easily but if you are joining them on the short edge as you do when sheeting a ceiling them you still scrim/tape and fill the joint,it just takes a bit more work to feather it out.

Local knowledge - MGM timber in Grangemouth (near arnold clark) or IBT near the (merc garage) have a better range than B&Q and are only a few mins away.
