Category: Seam a Wall
To reinforce the seam, “double-up” the screws at each location on the side of the rib away from the face.
While adjusting the flats to keep their faces flush, move up the seam inserting a screw approximately every 1′ on the edge of the rib nearest the face.
Insert a 1-5/8″ screw through the ribs of both flats at the bottom inside corner.
Adjusts the flats so that they are flush at the bottom and their faces are flush in front. Shims under the seam will be helpful on uneven floors.
Place two jacked flats adjacent to each other.
We occasionally use spackle, but it requires some time to dry as well as to sand it to a smooth surface. The easiest, quickest, and cleanest method is to ‘stretch’ the wall by wrapping it in muslin or other material.
