Precision said:To make a long story short I hired a friend to finish the sheetrock in my basement(he said he new how to do it). He put the first coat on pretty good but he forgot the tape. Can this be fixxed?
BUILDER1 said:The tape is used to prevent the seams from cracking. Paper tape needs to bond with the paper on the sheetrock to work properly. You could sand down as much as posible and use fiberglass tape or even straight flex to try to prevent cracking. I'm still don't understand how a finisher could forget to tape?
