Re: Gaps In Sheetrock.

Mesh tape and durabond. Plasterer I use for small jobs says that durabond shrinks less than joint compound when it dries. So it is a superior product in general. You can always add accelerator to the mix if you are pressed for time.

Generally I use 5 minute but you can find the mixture that works best for you. They make 5, 20, 45, and 90 min formulas. At least that is what is common to me.

Also I tell customers that hang their own sheetrock that my taping comes with minimal to no warranty if I do not approve of the hanging of the drywall.
This is as good of advice as you will receive..
