Q & A

  • Why would “Paper Faced Corner Bead” be used instead of nail-on corner bead?

    Nail on corner-bead is attached to the framing using drywall nails or staples (usually wood framing). Over time the wood twist and the metal corner bead cracks along the edge when the framing moves due to lumber drying and settling. Mud-on “Paper-Faced-Corner-Bead” floats with the wallboard when the framing moves and the building settles. Thus they do not edge crack when these situations occur. “Paper Face Corner Bead is applied using drywall compound and is not nailed on and attached to the wood framing with fasteners.
