seaming the ceiling joints


Is it necessary to tape the ceiling joints if molding is going to cover the joint? Also, what about shower joint between the dura rock and ceiling?

Re: seaming the ceiling joints


Yes the ceiling joints should at least a get a tape coat to seal. Doesn't need to be pretty if its going to be covered with molding.

If this is the ceiling just under the attic, then taping will help with air sealing.

Yes.

Use fiberglass (H & X pattern instead of the H pattern) tape for drywall. Use seam sealer in the shower.
