Re: Framer's Question For You Drywallers


This is a quality and reputation issue.

If you had an existing wall you are adding on to, the corner bead is removed and existing drywall removed to create a staggered joint at the connection of old & new.

The only way corner bead would be left are.....

New wall drywall and double layer hung over both walls.....or

drywall new wall and install 1x paneling over both walls.

I did very well in the remodeling market because you could not tell my job was a remodeled.....

You are looking at a 1/8" to 3/16" mud build up from the original bead in place, and now you are adding to it. If you remove the bead and scrape off a little of old mud, you are more or less finishing like it's a normal butt/corner joint. It doesn't take but a few minutes.

it takes less time to pull a corner bead than to start a new thread on CT

Always remove bead. Cut back drywall up to one foot. Impossible to finish correctly if you don't.
