    I'm in the process of stripping the vinyl. Got the plastic layer off but will have to steam or wet the paper to scrape it off.
    I wonder is there any point considering the slabs themselves have paper at the back on the cold side of the vapour barrier?
    (Sorry, over analysing again!!!)

    I.ve never plugged these just dabbed em . Never had a prob . And if its for fire (i thought it was if you were tiling to hold weight) then by time it gets hot enough for boards to fall of ye either out house or dead

    It’s more for when fire brigade go in it holds the boards up as in a fire it would go behind and melt the insulation

    In all fairness that's just hideous but you would think that the plasterer would of filled out the gaps with bonding before putting the scrim on (at the very least )

    Lol the plaster didn't put the scrim on. The super builder did. As I was the one who sorted it out. Bonding and then joint filler and paper tape was used. Then skimmed. I wasn't able to bond the wall at the end of the video on the right hand side. Super builder said it was ok as some timber was going there lol.

    Boring I know but it’s true hence why if a fire safety officer sees services going through the holes in the studs they go mad although if the place is burning down would be last of your worries
