Re: Broken Corner while installing drywall.


If it were me, I would put another screw about an inch over and carry on with the install and finish. That happens pretty often.

Re: Broken Corner while installing drywall.


Bone head move? I looked at the pic. No blood, scorch marks or ladders laying side ways.

If that is you definition of bone head you are good. Hang out with me for a day, and I will show you what real bone head means.

As the above members say, finish it up and call it done.

Re: Broken Corner while installing drywall.


When I saw this I thought you were talking about screwing the drywall to the wrong side of the stud.

Along with this and same for sides... I also tend to clean out the broken pieces so that I can fill in with "bag" mud.
