Painting New Drywall


We are having new drywall installed in a upstairs bedroom in a couple of weeks. The old drywall was poorly installed. The corniers were not taped. Whoever did it just put in moulding in the corners and aroung the ceiling.

My question is how long we need to wait to prime and paint after the drywall installers are completely done. Is there a standard timeframe that the joint compound needs to cure before we can proceed with priming and painting?

Thank you,
Ken

Once the finishers are done with their final sanding, the walls will be ready for primer. No further curing is necessary.
