Drywall - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


5/8 of an inch is recommended. You may be able to get away with 1/2 inch if you don't really care, but i would check with the building inspector first

The stud finders are not expensive but you can sometimes use a magnet to find the nails. Also you might try shining a flashlight across the wall. The putty put over the nails will sometimes show up. Last resort is to tap on the wall and try and hear the areas that have support under them.

just go to any hardware store and buy any drywall mesh tape on that width (2" - 50mm) and approximately same length (50yds to 60yds), virtually all of them have same internal diameter, therefore you should not have any problem with putting it into the dispenser.

do not bother with brandname! generic tape work as well and is half the price! tapeis glued only to tack to the wall, then mud is holding it.

You can either measure up from the floor or the piece of drywall you just hang and then measure over from the wall or the piece of drywall you just hang or you can put the drywall in place and I ball behind it and Mark with a pencil and then cut it out with a dremel tool and you should be good from there. You might want to use a keyhole saw or a roto zip and a Rotozip is the best way to do it but it takes a little practice in order to control it

2 or 3 days, plus or minus depending on how fast the mud dries.

Get you some heavy duty liquid nail or similar adhesive, put it in strings/loops, wait a bit, put rock on, hold a bit done

Drywall sheets are 4 feet wide. Thus, each foot of a drywall sheet contains 4 square feet. Divide 10,000 by 4 = 2500 linear feet of drywall sheets. Add 5 to 10% for wastage.

Just saw your question but no answer. Sorry about the repair on the glass tape. Crack are pretty common with mesh tape, especially if the mesh was covered with premix all purpose compound. Mesh tape should be covered with setting type compounds. More info can be found on the tapebuddy.net how-to manual. They cover the reasons for the different compounds.

Cutting Drywall Like a Pro


Cutting drywall is one of the more easy cuttings that you will do when remodeling your house although you hear all kinds of horror stories of people making huge mistakes and having to re-hang drywall or use exorbitant amounts of putty to fix mistakes. Following just a few simple tips you can master the task of cutting drywall.

Most of the cuts that you will be doing will fall under the category of score, snap, cut. Because dry wall is fairly easy to cut, for a majority of cuts you will just need a scoring knife with just enough pressure to cut the paper and then you will be able to snap the drywall then you have to cut the paper on the back side and you are done.

For the major cutouts that you will be doing like doors and windows, the best way to go about doing them is to measure and cut the boards before you hang them. Its best to have someone help you hold the board in place.

There are two main types of saws that you will use a drywall rip saw and a keyhole saw. They each have their purpose and they should only be used for the purposes that they are meant for. The keyhole saw is for small cuts like holes for light fixtures, outlets and switches while the rip saw is for cutting drywall down to size like for doors and windows.

Once you have mastered the basics of cutting drywall you will be able to do more advanced home repairs and will spend less time worrying about cutting out pieces of drywall.

Sheet rock on nine foot walls made easier


if you find yourself hanging nine foot walls with fiftyfour inch rock and the walls are
wooden framing, most have two boards running horizontal along the top. tap five
or six drywall nails along the top of the sheet were they will catch that top plate
and forget the screw gun save your back . use both hands get the sheet in place,
stay in tight with the sheet draw your hammer from your belt and tap in the prestarted nails.Three nails is enough to hold it if they are driven properly. But get
some screws in it asap. seems to save on my back hope it helps yours. Also works
well with two people as well.
