Having Issues with trim and cornerbead, need some advice.


I am helping renovate a relatives basement but have an issue concerning trim and corner-bead. Originally they wanted around the windows and bi-folding door (jambe/frame/sill areas) to be drywall. We proceeded in this fashion. The room is now waiting on base and carpet. Everything else, including drop ceiling and paint are complete.

Here is the issue.

They feel with a drop ceiling and no trim on the doors it has to much of an office feel. They now want us to trim around the windows and bi-folding doors. However, they are all done in drywall and have paper-faced metal cornerbead on all edges.

I am extremely nervous about shooting my finish-nailer into metal corner-bread.

My questrion is, does anyone else have suggestions on what to do? Will the nailer shoot into the cornerbead fine? Should I glue it with a few brad nails into drywall to hold it while it dries? (bit of a hack job). I am really stumped and don't want to just try shooting nails into cornerbead to see what happens.

Remove the corner bead and drywall where ever you need trim. You could also use longer nails and PL adhesive, but I'd go with the first option if it was my place

Sounds like they want to apply casing to a drywall wrapped opening.
That is pretty bush league but can be done easily.

Your concern about shooting through the corner bead should be shelved. No worries there. But there is not much to nail to behind it.

If you end up doing it this way, I would suggest A small bead of panel adhesive on the inside edge of the casing and "pinch nail" at that edge. That is where you alternate the angle of the nails so they have some holding power till the glue sets. The outside edge of the casing will have solid wood to nail into.

If you leave a 1/4" reveal between the casing and the corner bead it will resemble a normal wood wrapped opening after you paint the trim and drywall return with the trim color.

The best thing to do is tear out the corner bead and drywall wrap and trim it with wood extension jambs and casing. Much better in the long run.

Have fun and be safe

Be careful, shooting through bead is not a big issue, but hitting a drywall nail or screw could make you wish you tried something else. I have a friend who fish hooked a nail and stuck himself to the wall through his index finger.

Not really. After several mere flesh wounds, I learned that your body parts need to be at least 1.5 times the length of the fastener away from the business end of the nail gun.

What I meant was that you could hit a drywall nail anytime doing trim.

Good safety tip on your body position as it pertains to the length of the fastener.

You are still a patsy though

I figured you were putting in a frame as well as trim around the doors and window. If you're not, then as was suggested, glue and nail. Only thing is, you're likely to chip the plaster off the corner bead

I think you mean, "pansy", unless he was the one holding the trim for the shooter.
