Metal corner bead on 20' soffitt


Did a search and didn't find anything on this topic. I'm finishing my basement and have soffits enclosing the duct work and main beams. Now that the rock is hung, I need to put metal corner bead up. Is there a better way of joining pieces rather than simply attaching one and then the next taking care to get them aligned?

Nope, you hit it. Butt the factory ends together carefully... do not try to overlap them.

...thats what I'd do as well, although a roll of paper faced corner bead would be a good option as well. No seams, but you might need someone to help out.

I use a clincher tool to seat the bead then follow up with ringshank drywall nails. Lining up the ends really isn't a problem if you are carefull at all.

Thanks guys. Yeah they line up pretty easy. Just took the time to center the screws in the holes so they didn't pull the bead one way or the other.
