How to Repair a Dry wall Taped Seam
Hi, I’m Mark Donavon from HomeAdditionPlus.com. And today we’ve share to repair a dry wall taped seam. Dry wall tape can peel away from walls for number of reasons. It can be that the foundation is subtle a little bit. It can be from expansion of the walls, did the temperature changes? And it can also happen just to the fact that the dry wall table is improperly installed to begin with.
So the first thing I’m going to do here is using utility knife to cut away the peeling dry wall tape. So now I removed the old tape, I’m just taking some sand paper and roughly sanding off the edges a little bit. Make sure there are no high plaques. We’re up in the installation of the new dry wall tape, I'm using a tool called tape buddy. It's from Buddy Tools and basically it helps to apply even amount of the all purpose joint compound to the back of the tape that would then going to place on to the dry wall seam.
All we need to do is put our paper shading in one side and our joint compound. You know all purpose joint compound in the other side. This is a small project we just use a little bit. So now that I have this tape buddy machine loaded, all I need to do is pull the dry wall tape out. And as you can see here we get a nice, even application of joint compound on to a paper tape.
We’re going to draw off the one that we need to repair the seam. So now I'm applying my paper tape to the seam with the joint compound on the back of it. And I use my six-inch taping knife to imbed it into the wall. I want to make sure we press it in but we don’t want to press too much that we’ll remove the joint compound from behind the tape. And then once we have it firmly in place, we’re going to go back and put a skim coat, the joint compound over the top of the paper and we let this dry before coming back to put on finishing coats.
So now that we put the new dry wall tape into the seam, we’ll let dry and you come back and put two more finishing coats on, sanding it between each coat and the final, we put a light primer on and then paint and this thing will be good as new. Okay, so now we’re just doing finishing touches on our second coat of joint compound over the seam. And what I initially did after the first coated dry wall, joint compound dried, I let this sand to the edges in the high spots and then applied a thin skim coat over the seam again with the joint compound. We’re going to let this dry, by the sand the edges; again and put a final coat on to finish up this project.
So now I'm applying a Kilz Clean Start primer over the retake in mudded joint. So now, I’m just planting in the primer with the roller into their existing walls. Now I’m bringing on my final coated paint and this project’s done.
