Question

outside corner basic question


i am asking this question because my book is not specific about it one way of the other.

when setting an outside corner, should the screws that hold it in place be the same screws that hold the corner bead in place? i would think that would make sense to minimize the number of screws and maximize the fastening of the bead.

or should i first fasten the panels in the corner with one set of screws and then, once it is tight, set the bead with another set of screws. that way, the corner is tight before i set the bead BUT there would be more screws, which means more exposure to chip edges etc.

i hope the question comes across understandable.

thanks

I would just fasten the drywall first make sure the screws are deep enough so they dont interrupt the corner bead installation, then get the ''847 Trim-tex'' glue and glue the corner bead on the corner. No need to use screws to hold it on, once you apply a few coats of mud on it it will never move.

I set metal corner bead with a small crown stapler---works for me--

No screws in the corner bead--use drywall nails--screws will pucker up the tin and make a mess--Mike--

You think a regular stapler like this will work?

Nope---1/4" small crown staples 1 1/4" long---Unless the job is huge--just buy a box of drywall nails--

I do agree--that stick on bead is good stuff---I only offered the methods of installing the tin corners in case you already purchased them---

Always better to fasten to the drywall than the wood framing which moves with humidity/heating/cooling changes: http://bestdrywall.com/files/ReduceCallbacks.pdf
