spackling drywall


I just had my bath sheet rocked, do I need to tape over every drywall screw, or can I just spackle over the screws and tape the seams.

spackling drywall


Welcome Pahabdul, to the best darn DIY'r site on the web.

Spakle over screws (make sure they are below the surface)

Tape over joints, inside corners, corner bead over outside corners.

Am I getting this wrong? Sheetrock for a tub surround?

I would definetly spackle all of the nail holes and tape the way JackofAll described. I'm hoping if this is a tub surround or even if it's not that you went with the greenboard in your bathroom to help with humidity and water vapors. In either case I would patch all the nail holes
