q & a

  • When installing corner bead or trim, how much space should be left between the trim and the floor?

    Leave a 1/4" space between the bottom edge of the corner bead or trim and the floor.

  • Do paper-faced beads and trims cost more than bare-faced trims?

    Yes, but they require fewer repair callbacks to fix edge-cracked corners.

  • What should I do before installing corner bead and trim?

    Make sure wallboard is clean, firm and dry before applying corner bead and trim. Also, verify that the bead or trim is wide enough to cover any gaps in the wallboard.
