    What’s wrong with self adhered? The occasional stray hair as sucks but on flats it saves time. (Repairs)

    To me the strength in a joint comes from “gluing” the paper tape to the drywall with mud. Mesh just doesn’t achieve that. FF is a good balance but I still only use it for patch work. New work gets paper.

    That’s exactly how I see it also.

    Anyone here butt tape joints to avoid humps? I can’t bring myself to do it even though it would help some keep some areas flatter.

    Also wanna hear from you boys on marrying new to old stuff like adding a soffit for instance.

    Would you tape like normal? Would you flat tape and caulk the joint to avoid repainting existing surfaces?

    I have used tear away instead of flat tape. My only reason for adding the cost was I felt like I could key in the caulk in the gap.
    I actually really like using tear away.

    No problem with butt boards, they suck both side up and it is an easy tape

    You read it wrong.

    Your right, Thanks. Old eyes and skim reading isn’t a wise thing to do

    @TopNotch I love tear away too! Depending on the scope of work, ceiling size, texture, etc. sometimes it makes sense to avoid ceiling re-work or painting.

    On this current liitle addition we have some masonry walls that are staying so we use the tear away on those walls to keep a clean straight edge.

    Also we used straight flex for this tight inside corner. I used all purpose for everything since it has the weekend to dry.

    The question is… What is the benefit of taping an inside corner over flat taping techniques? Does flat taping fail?

    I haven’t seen it yet.

    I know Paul is one.

    Also trying to think about where to testing standards. I have to dig around gypsum stuff.

    Certain instances flat tape will fail. I think it all depends on the building and how that building moves.

    Drywall is my first trade and I have been doing it for about 20 years and haven’t seen flat taping fail but I have seen the Caulking fail that is trying to pose as a taped corner.
