Boston Smart Plastering - Blueboard Installation

Our Detailed Process

First, we prepare the surface to ensure that the framing is properly installed, and the walls are plumb and square. The surface should be clean and free of moisture. The locations of electrical boxes and other openings are marked for the installation process.

1

Second, using a utility knife or drywall saw, the blueboard is cut to size, ensuring a snug fit around obstacles and openings. Electrical boxes and other cutouts are measured and marked on the blueboard, and a drywall router or saw is used to create clean, precise openings.

2

Thirdly, a continuous bead of construction adhesive is applied along the framing where the blueboard will be attached. We then use drywall screws to secure the blueboard to the existing framing, spaced evenly and slightly countersunk below the surface.

3

Lastly, mesh tape is applied over the seams between the blueboard sheets, ensuring proper centering and adhesion. A joint compound or setting-type compound is used to fill the tapered edges, seams, and screw holes, creating a smooth and seamless surface.

Quick response and great work! The team was very professional and kept the work area very clean by laying out paper on the floor and counter tops to ensure they didn’t make a mess. Top notch service!

We had a great experience with Boston Smart Plastering. They quickly performed major repairs on an issue with our very old ceiling that came out great! They were very easy to work with and I will definitely be using them again!

I had some water damage in my bedroom ceiling and walls. The team was great from beginning to end. They came to look at my damage in person and gave me an estimate later that day. They were able to do the job a couple days later and did a great job! They laid out paper to protect my floor and swept up when they were done. Overall, great people to get work with and someone you can trust to do a good job.
