Re: Corner Bead For Drywall?


I agree big shoe bullnose was ruined by manufactured homes and track homes in the 90's but still have builders that like it. I will put whatever the customer wants on. It's all preference that's all there is to it.

Re: Corner Bead For Drywall?


Here in Prince George, I use No Coat all the way...is a far better corner bead than metal and bead x. When put on properly it will not chip, dent or cavitate. All your lines are perfectly straight, vault lines look sharp and crisp. Its not any harder to install, costs a little more, and next to no call backs. Less mud is used to fill because its pre tapered.
There is a lot of old school drywallers here, and man do they bitch an moan when I talk to them about metal corners and no coat...lol its quite funny..."It costs to much....it doesn't work...." you have not used it correctly....

No Coat looks like a great product, but their CS sucks. It's even worse than Schluter and i didn't think was possible.

Go with Phillips! Their corner beads are superior to any thing you'll find on the market today. Best bead I've ever used very easy to install and lasts forever..

Suppose he works for Phillips? One post, and this is the post. Something smells a little fishy here!

I'm currently using the perforated, stainless steel, beads. Sharp straight angles and good adhesion.Nailed if possible, powdered mix if not!

They sound like Bailey beads. The metal is a lot thicker and they are great beads.

Re: Corner Bead For Drywall?


I prefer the paper faced metal bead myself. It is embedded with taping mud which glues it to the wall. Vinyl bead may be a bit less expensive but requires that messy spray can of glue to make it stick and will take more mud over the bead to fill it in. Strait metal bead is "old school"

Re: Corner Bead For Drywall?


Anyone who says metal corner bead is the way to go is just stuck in their ways. Metal corner bead simply fails way too often even when it is put on perfectly. This is because of structural movement that you regularly see in new houses / buildings. Going back and fixing it is a shot in the wallet, time is money.

The industry has been revolutionized when it comes to corner bead by a number of different companies. My company has been using the No-Coat Corner Bead system for about 5-6 years now. It is by far the best corner bead system we have worked with in 25 years worth of business. Most importantly: it doesn't fail.

Re: Corner Bead For Drywall?


Hey guys my name is Dan and I'm new to the form. Sorry for the long first post.... and to bump an old topic but I've done alot of homework on this now and I can't find the answer too a couple things...
I am looking at switching from paperfaced metal outside 90's to the nocoat ultratrim outside 90's (the precut, prebent one's not the roll) Just looking for a little advice from someone who has worked with the stuff already... Where I am this a special order item otherwise I would just buy a couple sticks and try it out...
Here's my concerns....

How well does this stuff "butt up" to each other? Say I have a long bulk head with an outside corner would I just get the longest sticks made and butt them up to each other like one would with the metal paper faced bead? Or would you use the ultraflex roll (350 or 450?) and just cut a long length too fit?

How well does the ultratrim cut up for an outside 3way? Say for example you were beading a halfwall with a finished top edge, the outside corner where the vertical and two horizontal stciks of bead meet up needs to be cut back on a 45 to make a nice outside corner..... does the ultraflex work here or would you stick with paper faced metal in this situation?


Thanks in advance for any advice

BUT!! Were 1/3 the cost of plaster. That's why people love looking at popped screws/shrunkin bead/ bulged seams/cracks...Plaster goes to chit too..just takes alot longer.

Soffits we use the rolls usually the 325 (cheaper) 450 only in reeeal high end applications or in an instance where framing and sheetrock werent good. The precuts are nice for standups and stuff but the seamless soffits are sshhhwweeeet.Yes tou 45 your corners or backcut then cover with last stick
