Question about Garden
Hello. With out seeing it, you may be correct about having to remove the tape but more commonly the repair is to leave the tape there, knock down any high spots with a sander and then build up two or three more layers of mud feathering each one out about three inches further than the last using larger and larger knives.
1. JOINT COMPOUND:
Actually you need to add water to either type of compound, the premix should be thinned with water to a proper working consistency, depending on what you are doing with it.
I use quick set for the first coat on **** joints and outside corners because of it sets harder than the premixed types. We also use it for prefilling any gaps in the sheets. Setting type compound also can be sanded and recoated within as little as 15 mins, so we also use it for small repair work or patching.
When you get into the premixed types of compounds there are 3 basic types. All-Purpose, Light, & Topping Mix.
The manufacturer's and the industry specs call for All-Purpose to be used for taping, light is used for subsequent fill & finish coats. Topping Mix is strictly for final finish & texture coats.
Regular old fashioned paper tape works as well as any.
