Standard Precedure For Texture On A Wall?


We now I found a guy to do the texture in this place he wants me to do the drywall. This is a first for me as I ain't ever messed with texture.

Is there a best board to use? vinyl or metal corner beads, mud and tape all seams to what level? Etc etc
Thanks guys

Re: Standard Precedure For Texture On A Wall?


I would ask him. I'm beginning to like the paper edged corner beads, but don't know about longevity. He will know what level of finish he needs, but the smoother the better as any scratches, divots or edges show through the texture unless you are blowing on a crapload of mud.

Oh, and it's nice to know that I'm not the only one with an occasional rookie question around here.

You think if I goto a level 3 will be good enough. He wants blue board so that's that bit sorted.

I got loads more rookie questions lol just ain't got them jobs yet where I have to ask them.

I've never used the number system. I just get it smooth. Hopefully someone who knows something will be along soon.

A plain splatter/orange peel is way more forgiving than a knock down... A KD will highlight any high or low spots.

Paper faced metal corners are the shiz for me... If your worried about impact in a high traffic area, I sometimes pack the back full of mud for a really solid corner.

Level 3 then skip trowel.

Metal bead (IMO) is easier to install but if you ever hit it your screwed.

Vinyl bead you'll need to put the additive in to make it stick better. Well you don't need to but it would help.

Fly me out I'll do it.....

I was never able to use staples on Vinyl bead. 18ga anyway. They always cracked it or went through. Metal I use 18ga though.

I was talking about applying mud to it. My bad on clarification.

Try to put one of the legs of the staple through the hole and hold the gun on a little bit of an angle. Works like a charm.

I use the spray adhesive and a normal staple gun and it hold it's in place till it sets up. Works well.

Let' make this complicated. Just hang it and finish it. It's not rocket science.

If you are just shooting for " good enough" then you will be fine. If you are wanting to do a light texture ( looks nicer and stays cleaner longer) youd better do a good job of finishing. Everyones definitions of the levels of finish are different but a level 3 may pass in a garage or closet according to my standards.Blueboard should be fine but is not needed unless you are in a damp environment. Its actually good board to finish over. If you go with a light or even a heavy spray knockdown I would make damm sure the seams and screws are all done right because any patchwork/repair will stick out like a sore thumb

Many tapers would disagree, they would insist taping is way more difficult than rocket science. Just try holding a mud pan in one hand, a knife in the other, a cell phone in the other, and a beer in the other, all the while break-dancing to a radio broadcast that can be heard a mile away.
