Drywall - Page 3 - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


It's been almost 10 months since the question was posted so how does it look? Most bubbles appear under the drywall tape or could be from primer / paint being rolled over drywall dust. Tape bubbles don't go away. These need repaired by cutting out the bubbled tape and filling in with compound. Tape bubbles can be avoided by using a TapeBuddy taping tool. This tool applies compound directly to the tape so there are no dry spots under the tape. Hope this helps.

You will need a carbide tipped masonry bit that is the same size as the spike- 1/4", 3/8" etc. Of course you will have to use a hammer drill.

Look online for the manual or call the company on getting the operating manual. May cost a couple of bucks if they want to sell it to you

Clean out the crack and then tape the seam using paper tape and a tapebuddy tool. The tape drys super flat and is easy to apply.

250' and 500' rolls of paper are basically the same price per foot. The question is listed under " How do I tape a drywall ceiling?" So let me start by saying it's easy to tape a drywall ceiling with the right tools. "The TapeBuddy® drywall taping tool is a one step drywall tape and joint compound application tool that makes taping drywall SUPER Easy!" Rather than paste more TapeBuddy info here, go to tapebuddy.net for the info. The how-to manual will give you lots of great advice.

By beading, are you referring to drywall tape? If this is cracked and you want to repair the tape, I suggest you use a nice cove mold to cover up the lose tape. Otherwise you'll need to remove the old tape, smooth out the popcorn ceiling area, re-tape the corning then feather it in, then texture the ceiling again. The trip is much easier to do. It's cleaner, quicker and really would look nice.

Will it stick? yes but unless you want to keep the same look, I opt for the cove mold.

If it's the initial coat- that's quite normal. Subsequent coats of compound are put on the joint using a trowel that has a slight concave edge, so the compound is thicker in the middle portion on the joint. This fills in the joint, and when the compound dries it shrinks to a more flat surface. When done properly, the joint edges are feathered and there is little sanding to be done.
