The Gypsum Association announced the publication of the revised finishing recommendation, GA-214-2010,Recommended Levels of Gypsum Board Finish.
The document assists specifiers, owners, and contractors to
precisely describe the desired finish of individual walls and ceilings to meet
specific needs. It avoids non-specific terms like “industry standards” and “workmanlike
finish” and the problems they can cause.
The changes that appear in the 2010 edition are primarily
intended to make the document consistent with industry joint treatment
application practices and recent modifications in model building codes.
This publication was jointly produced by AWCI, CISCA, The
Drywall Finishing Council; the Gypsum Association; and the Painting and
Decorating Contractors of America.
GA-214-2010 may be purchased online from the association’s Web
site at www.gypsum.org, or by telephoning (301) 277-8686.
