Tape,Mud & Paint Blueboard?

Question: I recently purchased a home w/blueboard already hung but not plastered. Can I tape, mud and paint the blueboard or do I need to hire a plasterer? The cost differential is huge!!

Welcome to the forums

While blue board is made to accept a plaster veneer I wouldn't think there would be a problem with taping and finishing it like you would regular drywall. At most it might require a better primer. Wouldn't hurt to visit the USG web site.
