Bullnose 3-ways


I have used bullnose corners lots, but only floor to ceiling. This job I am at now has 3-ways with bullnose and I am not sure how to do those corners as well as when just two corners meet, one horizontal and one vertical. I know there are plastic corners one could use, is that the norm and how do you put them on - mud or glue? Any tips would be really helpful!

Re: Bullnose 3-ways


I glue the three way corner caps on .Then when I match up the bead I will nail the bead and cap in place so it matches the best and the bead will not move when drying. Coat the corner caps the same way you would an arch or a join in bead to get rid of the join line. I usually have to do three coats on them to get them perfect. Hope this helps

The above will work. Just make sure when the bead meets the three way nice and tight. You may have to trim the bead to make it straight. It seems to be off a little from the factory.

Caulk the little spaces between the connector and bullnose after it is painted!

Use the cheapest latex non-gloss caulk you can buy.

Re: Bullnose 3-ways


I just use thick taping mud and a nail in each side but don't pound the nails in all the way one at a time tap them in get your lines right and then carefully hit the nails one at a time keeping the cap in place. the reason I use mud rather than glue is when the bead goes on you are still able to adjust the cap small amounts with a carefule hammer tap you can also float it somewhat in dire drywalling circumstances. as well get yourself a rubber bead knife (a small curved rubber knife available at most well stocked mud supply store) I use it to put a coat over the cap after everything has been skimmed you just coat in all three directions and touch up the edges with your knife after, it gives the sander something to work with.

Re: Bullnose 3-ways


I agree with towertaper, i also put the 3 way on with mud in order to make slight adjustments after the beads are installed. we also use no-coat bullnose beads so nailing is obsolete.
