Forum Title: tape falling off the walls question
I dont want to get anyone mad but I have a question I get calls to come look at jods that tape is falling off the ceilings. I cut the tape and it pulls off so very easy and if there is a butt it will pull it off too. when the tape gets close to the inside corner I need to cut it or the corner tape will also come off (question) 1. Is it the type off mud ? 2. Is it the paper tape ? (dirty tape) 3. Is it the paper on the rock board (typy of drywall board) 4. Is it too much water in the mud ??? this is why I dont use paper tape ...I would like to but I repair alot of jobs and It is allways paper tape that dose this. Also I repair jobs with meshbutt we know why it looks like there is a crack. 1. Need to use durabond or plaster on the tapecoat 2. no mud on the back side of the tape (mesh can move) Now there is fibefuse! Its new and I have not done any repairs yet on it But I wish they made 1. the way it is now becouse its thin and great for nail pops and other things. 2. A thicker roll but not white use on seams / corners Please I dont want to start a war I just want good feed back
