OK... Take your word for it..... (I can't see that detail).... maybe the guy has to learn how to lay down a smoth bead....or maybe the painter didn't have two shots of Old Crow to steady his hand...

Ben.... There are many instances where tapeing and finishing looks like krap also.... so what.

(Ben...earlier, I was merely stateing that there are some circumstances where caulk is acceptable, maybe preferential, to use in an inside corner, and that many legitimate contractors will use that application... and achieve better performance.)

I know, so does everyone here know, you have 40 years experience... but it is also important for us old F's to keep our minds open.

Best

Peter

"For many years contract documents describing how
gypsum board walls and ceilings should look prior to final
decoration with paints and other wallcoverings have included
nonspecific terms such as “industry standards” and “workmanlike
finish.” And, for as many years, wall and ceiling
contractors have tried to fulfill their obligations by providing
the finish conditions envisioned but not truly described." From; http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...UuLD6g&cad=rja

There is now a guide, not yet in the codes (same but better pics); http://nationalgypsum.com/resources/...revisiting.htm
