Types Of Drywall Tape
Drywall tape is generally available in and made up of two materials. Either paper or fiberglass mesh. Fiberglass or mesh tape is used mostly for flat surfaces as it struggles to with those hard to reach inside corners. At Raleigh Drywall NC we know just what to use and where. Paper based tape is not as strong as fiberglass, however it is a lot easier to manipulate and when used correctly can create just as strong a bond between the joints as mesh. Especially due to its non-elastic nature. Paper based tape can usually also be used with both drying or setting type compounds
Drywall finishing contains multiple steps that each need to be completed to the highest standards. Our experts have split these into 9 simple steps. Firstly the compound needs to be stirred and the surfaces prepped. The compound is then applied to all screw heads. It is also used to cover joints. Once the compound has been applied, we apply our paper tape and begin the smoothing process. Once the flat surfaces are completed we begin on those difficult inner and outer corners, repeating the process.

Compounds predominantly come in two forms. Namely premixed or powder. Most often an all-purpose compound will do the job nicely. Being versatile enough to handle most if not all you’re finishing needs.
