Forum Title: 5 minute durabond
I am a drywall contractor out of va. I cover all areas of the drywall spectra. I sub houses out and try and stay busy doing repairs myself. I use five minute gold bond and try and complete everything under 7 boards in two trips, I tape, coat and skim everything twice on the first trip and come back to touch up and check for any shrinking on the second. I just picked up some work from a fire and water restoration company that called me today with a ceiling job they want me to do friday. No problem, but they want me to have it paint ready on friday also. Since this is my first job for them and they can keep me busy I told them I would do it but I am skeptical about the great possibility it will shrink and I want it to look perfect. Does anyone have any pointers on how I can lessen my chances of it shrinking. I am not a fan at all of mesh tape because of its lack of quality verses paper tape but Im thinking that if I meshed the factory joints and taped the butts and angles maybe that would help.
