SATTV:unrlx: Yep tried that too. It was also peeling off the first layer of gib lol. Well it basically needed to get really wet but not constantly so hot till it started eating into the gib
Were you using just a steamer or did you user a paper tiger first?
A paper tiger puts thousands of tiny holes in the paper first before steaming it, lets the water get in behind and stops you lifting the top layer of gib.
Once done, you will have tiny holes in the gib but you were probably going to skim and pigseal anyway.
Yeah used paper tiger.
So I shouldn't care about holes in the gib? I'm gonna seal, skim and plaster as much as I can as it's basically bare gib.
