Is it OK to tape by multiple pieces of tape on one length?
I face situations where if I can break a full length of seam into a few shorter lengths, it would be easier to tape... Is this a general practice such as ceiling.... or some odd locations where it is difficult to lay full length..etc. or this is not a good idea....
I always mud up so much then tape and then on to the next section when I am dealing with long lenghts. I have never broke the tape in sections because of the difficulty in finishing. Now thats for smooth ceilings, if your going to texture then you won't have much problems there. My thoughts on this are "its hard enough to finish butt joints and I sure don't want any other difficult areas to do if I can help it". As far as butting the tape I do disagree with this ( sorry Brik)and personaly would not do it. The last thing I would want to happen is for a small crack to show up on a finished ceiling.
