Re: Screw Spacing For Corner Bead


Working on a 5,800 sq.ft. house right now,built in 1985. All the bead was crimped and nailed. Not one single cracked bead on the walls,corners,windows were all bead too!

The only cracked beads were on the ceiling skylights and soffits in a few areas. That seems to be routine. Settling trusses or movement from hurricanes.

The only places I add extra fasteners to bead is in high traffic areas.

To each his own.

is there more labor or less?
if the existing framing is not perfect can you adjust these corners to plumb and still get the strength that there showing in the video?

I pay about $ 2.00 per stick.

Less labor to install.
Less labor to finish.
Less mud to finish.
Lays flatter than metal bead.

I've never beat my beads with a stick, but yes you can adjust them.

Re: Screw Spacing For Corner Bead


I use taped bead and mud it on. Screws are pita. The will deform no matter what, and mud shouldn't be the fix for it, to me that is hack work ethics.

Re: Screw Spacing For Corner Bead


Back when I was a super we installed that in one home. We bought the special rollers and all.

That was the only time I saw it done. I think it was when they first came out with it.

They said it was something new from California???



Really......If it was that good would'nt everybody be using it?
Just ask'n

Why would you want to screw bead on anyway? If your not careful you'll distort it and mess it up. I've followed behind people that did that before.

If I don't use my crimper I use my staple gun with screws/nails
edge cracks.

The best spacing is whatever distance it is to the trash bin.

That stuff is so "old school". Attaching bead directly to the studs you run a risk when the wood shrinks of screwing up the bead. Use paper faced metal bead which is attached to the board with taping mud. Throw that other stuff away.
