Dear friends, I would be most grateful if any of you with building / decorating experience in France would be kind enough to offer advice.
In my (approx. 12-y-o) house there are some areas which have been left cosmetically unfinished (garage, utility room). The plasterboard has 'blobs' of white which appear to seal the joins, but do not do so for the whole length because they are discontinuous. I have just had some work done to a bathroom and the finish is the same (though the plasterboard is sea-green instead of grey, presumably because it is a waterproof type?) Here the joins are covered in tape, then some sort of white paint and the 'blobs' are confined to areas of unevenness such as nail holes.
In UK I would expect the finish to be a skim of plaster ready for me to apply emulsion. However there is clearly a different practice here - can anyone enlighten me as to what it is and what I should be doing next please?
