Sr J?


I am trying to work up a bid for a prospective job but am not sure how to finish off the sheetrock in a couple situations. One is where the SR would meet in the corner with an interior brick wall and the other is the SR meeting in the corner with paneling that will eventually get replaced later on, guessing SR J is the answere. Does a person nail the J in the corner slip the SR in and walk away from it calling it finished or take the time to mud up and over the j channel? I have not used J channel much before, is there a better finished solution out there?

If you finish over J, it will crack.
I would recommend using tear-away bead for this installation.

Re: Sr J?


Glad you brought this up. I also have a question for the drywall pros. I have a job going on that the owner wants to save a little on the trim material and have the drywall wrap the corners and stop against the window. I think that at least they need to allow for wood trim on the bottom of the window, but I am not sure about stopping the drywall against the window. Do you leave a 1/8 gap and caulk the joint or use the j?

Not "j", tear away. You can either caulk it tight or use tear away. How much extra are you getting per wrap?

Oh Brock, will you ever learn. Can I have your permission to use that gag on someone myself? Pleeeeeeaaassse? I'll go to Ford truck owners forum or something and lay in wait, just waiting for the perfect opportunity. So... Uh, can I?

We use a plastic J trim, its used to but up to window and doors,
it comes in 1/2" and 5/8" thickness. 8 and 10' lengths
put it onto the peice of drywall and push hard to the window frame and screw the drywall down.
It protects and finishes the edge of the drywall, from moisture.

sorry guys, but if you use tear away bead, you will have to fill it. this product its up to the boarders to use and install, and once they are done there is no filling. I will post a picture on my website aarcdrywall.com so you can see what i am talking about.

We use Mud-on J on window returns and eliminates the unsightly edge of regular J. Just mesh tape the flange to that of the bead. You are filling both at the same time. Then the painter should caulk to window prior to painting. Eliminates call backs and is maybe .10 a stick higher.

Re: Sr J?


Don't have to pull the strip off and hangers install vs. finishers. But it is what I used before mud-on became available. Still use tear-away on commercial if spec'd but use mud-on if given a choice.
