To build the best home possible, homeowners and contractors alike consistently look to save time and money during construction while ensuring durability and longevity. Illinois-based Ken Polhamus and his team put their trust in USG Sheetrock® Brand Paper-Faced Bead to deliver quick, crack-free corners in 700 homes each year.
Unlike traditional metal corner bead, which is fastened to the framing using nails, paper-faced bead is attached directly to the drywall using tape and compound. As a result, it can move with the drywall as the lumber expands and contracts, ultimately reducing the likelihood of cracks. As a bonus, Polhamus estimates the paper-faced installation process takes half the time of metal corner bead, saving time and building costs.
Crack-free corner performance means fewer repairs over the life of a home, resulting in an approximate $50,000 annually savings in service costs for the company.
