Do You Tape Your Corner Beads?


I do,

I'm sure we all have seen house after house with the corner beads busting loose.

My solution, I always tape my corner beads.

This weeks project is drywall, I'll add pics of my progress.

Not a real elaberate job, just trying to give it a face lift.

110+ year old home, so I am sure you will see somethings a little out.

I have straightened out most of the big problems, new rock on the ceiling, demo'ed out the existing closet, reframed new closet.

I have to order a 48" 8-lite french door, frame the opening, revamp/ re trim windows, etc.

Anyways here's where i am right now,

CCC.....try No Coat Corner beads. Extremely strong and does not crack like a traditional bead due to its paper flange.

Re: Do You Tape Your Corner Beads?


I've used the one coat or no coat for inside corners on those little bastard closets. First time we tried it one of the guys installed in backwards.Wtf?

So the no coat became and expensive paper tape.

Live and learn.
Good luck

I totally get where your coming from, heres my view.

The corner beads that have paper are around $3.50 approx. for me, and they are mudded on, no mechanical fasteners. ( are these the ones your referring to?)

Standard bead costs $1.50 approx. for me, mounts solid, I ALWAYS use 1 5/8" screws in place of 1 1/4", for the corner beads.

Add approximetly $1.50 for 250' of tape.

$3.00 bullet proof corner, no looking back.

Re: Do You Tape Your Corner Beads?


No doubt a properly installed metal corner will last especially if it is taped but my experience with no-coat has been great plus you eliminate the screwing/adjusting with the metal. If you had many many corners to do, I feel no coat would save you time and time in the end.

By the way, I like how all of your screws are straight!

Re: Do You Tape Your Corner Beads?


You could use a three inch screw.... if you are hanging a metal bead and taping it on a header across a room and one 2x dries or moves different than the one it is next to, the bead is gonna turn and crack because you attached the bead to that wood. If you use a mud on bead, you don't have that issue. It stays on the rock and doesn't turn or crack.
Just my two cents worth. More than my opinion.... Past experience.
Too bad you have to pay 3.50 for the bead. We pay 2.00 from Sherwin Williams. Talked them into carrying them. No Coat Sticks. Good stuff!

I clinch all my Soffits and Tape, If I in a high traffic area I compound before I put the Corner bead up then Tape - No nails or Screws - Super Strong.
Resists most dings and dents.

Re: Do You Tape Your Corner Beads?


I have never seen a metal corner taped. I don't see the need for it but that's just my opinion. I do like to have durabond 90 or 45 (depending on the job) used on all corners. I do like using the no-coat corners when the job permits.

Re: Do You Tape Your Corner Beads?


Some of the demo work, out with the trim, carpet, pad, tack.
Then up with a layer of bruce hardwood flooring, I am guessing its from the early late 60's, or early 70's (just speculating).
I know the carpet was laid in the early 80's for sure.

I hate layers,...

You can see it was in pretty rough shape.

Out with the drywall on the ceiling,the first layer of insulation, and the remaining vermiculite that was on the top plates.
Look ma, no electrical box, the fan was mounted to the drywall,...

Re: Do You Tape Your Corner Beads?


Up with the new electrical box (re located), new insulation, new rock.
Had a ceiling joist or two that where bowed down, chaulked a straight line, and cut them on the fly.
Quite a bit straighter them it was,

Re: Do You Tape Your Corner Beads?


Us hangers around here would LOVE you guys if you used the tape-on bead! Cheap wood and gnarled corners make putting on bead a real PITA and the blame is always on the hangers. Good point about the bead not following the bowing and buckling wood....I've tried pointing that out a few times but is the response I get.

Re: Do You Tape Your Corner Beads?


When you walked through the door way, it squeaked, and it squeaked bad. It had been poorly repaired prior.
After invesigating here's what I found. 1x native joist broke.
