Simply take a :
- Sharp knife (Stanley knife)
- A saw
- A straight edge and tape measure
You can then simply score the boards with a sharp knife and snap them over a straight edge.
Holes for switch/socket boxes should be considered and cut out before the boards are fixed.
Always take the proper safety precautions when cutting insulation. We recommend cutting insulation in a clear, open space. You should always wear safety goggles and thick gloves.

What Are The Benefits Of Using A Tapered Edge Board Over A Square Edge Board?
There are a few key reasons why tapered edge plasterboard is generally considered to be a better option than square edge plasterboard:
- Much easier to create smooth, professional-looking finishes when jointing and skimming
- Makes it easier to achieve a seamless finish between sheets
- Generally much easier to work with overall, meaning that you are less likely to make mistakes when installing it
- When the boards are butted up together there is a slight depression where they meet that you can fill with plasterboard joint filler to conceal the joint
Please note: joint treatment should be allowed to dry before commencing with any decorator's preparatory work or direct decorations.
