Termination Joint


What would be the preferred method to finish drywall against commercial window frames?

Tear away, Jay, flat tape or they make vinyl corner guard that doesn't wrap around both sides. I think "L" bead is the correct name

Re: Termination Joint


I’d probably go with the tear away too. I’ve seen it done with the other choices and it’s not good.

If you want to use the big J to save on labor look for a metal one. The vinyl ones warp and shlt.

Re: Termination Joint


The Mason's left little room for wood bucks and jagged block cells so I ended up I ended up making 3/4 plywood frames pocket screw together and floated in with spray foam. Plus a tapcon or two where I could.

came out very sturdy in my framing technique around the outside of the block tied in the plywood which I left long however these returns are about 10 in deep. So that detail isn't going to work.

I will probably just use the tear away or L bead. Just don't like spraying the adhesive next to the window that I'll have to cover up to prevent over spray

Re: Termination Joint


They're already taped up because of the spray foam I left it in place.

Re: Termination Joint


Plastic "J" channel with tear away edge and hold just a little gap away from aluminum. After you tear away the inside edge and paint, caulk against the window frame.
