Re: Backerboard To Drywall Seam


So on one of my jobs I tried this kerdi band on my seam and I'm regretting it.

I used guards to seal my drywall before thin setting the kerdi band to the seam. I have since skim coated the same with hot mud then all purpose joint compound and primer again.
My finish coat of paint is cracking all over the place.

Way too much work to be doing twice what could have been done differently?

Did the band stay in place? Did the hot mud not crack? Is the primer intact?

I never prime prior to any type of banding or taping.

The band is in place. The 45-minute did seem a little funny on the first coat and took more topcoating than it should have. The primer seemed fine too

Re: Backerboard To Drywall Seam


I’m thinking the hot mud has issues.

I’ve had 5 minute take hours.

I'd call them up. Maybe they had a bad batch they're not telling anyone.

Re: Backerboard To Drywall Seam


Although it was 45 minute I swear it acted more like twenty minute. Either way I hope to resolve it. I scaped anything that didn't bond and flaked. Then skimmed again.
Well see tomorrow

Re: Backerboard To Drywall Seam


So this sucks more time and money wasted. Scraped the crackling paint which seem to moisten deeper layers.

Filled with normal spackle, after fully drying, put fresh paint on it only to get the same result.

Now I'm thinking it's the gardz. No problem with the thinset but powerful stuff wondering if it stays semi-active. Called USG they don't have any solutions unless you use their method for joint treatment

This, Sherman Williams says it possibly them but unknown. USG offers their own suggestion for this joint. Veering away kills a fix

By now you're probably wondering if this works.

The corner below is Kerdi banded (10"), taped and painted. Sorry, don't have a better picture.

Re: Backerboard To Drywall Seam


You guys never listen. Zissner Cover Stain oil primer anytime you think you may have bonding issues.

First thing I do on a lot of jobs is roll a perimeter of repair area with it. Quick mud sticks and sets up faster on it.

Tried Gaurdz once. Sorry, not for me.

Thanks big shoe. I wasn't thrilled with the Gardz even if that wasn't the problem.

I will try cover stain
