Seams Intersect

I have a wall with seams running horizontially and vertically. How are these to be taped and finished? The area I am most concerned with are where they intersect. How is that section done to avoid un-necessary buildup. Thanks, Jim.

Re: Seams Intersect

With a question like that Jim......maybe your over your head. Sometimes we just have to stay out of the deep end of the pool.

Quick answer: hire a taper. It'll be better than how I'm thinking your wall will turn out if you try to do it yourself. No offense intended, but Bob's right, if you're asking a fundamental taping question like this, you should not attempt to finish this wall.

Re: Seams Intersect

if youre asking a question like that than as the others have hinted i assume you are not a taper, if thats so(I really hope it is) then id guess you are not in a piecemeal situation where youre being pushed for time. coat your flats first always(10" or 12"), wiat til it dries then coat your butts, those are the verticals(12" or 14") hope that helps some.
