Corner Beads FAQs

Corner Beads are used to provide a clean, square finish and protect the edges of the drywall to reduce chances of damage such as cracking or chipping.

 

There are several types of corner beads including bullnose, square corner beads, and rounded or radius corner beads. Each has specific applications depending on the desired finish.

 

The right Corner Bead often depends on the aesthetic finish you want and the level of impact resistance required. For instance, bullnose beads are used for creating rounded corners while metal beads are preferred for high impact areas.

 

Corner Beads can typically be installed by applying a dab of construction adhesive every 10 inches along the length, then applying joint compound on either side and letting it dry.

 

Yes, after the Corner Bead is installed and the joint compound is dry, it can be sanded smooth and painted over.

 

Corner Beads are commonly made from materials such as PVC plastic, paper-faced metal, galvanized steel or aluminum.

 

Corner Beads can be purchased from most home improvement stores or online through specialty drywall finishing retailers like Master Building Materials.

 

The installation of Corner Beads can be a DIY project if you have basic knowledge of drywall finishing. However, for a professional finish, it might be worth hiring a specialist.

 

The drying time can range from 12 to 24 hours depending on the type of joint compound, its thickness, and the environmental conditions.
