The Trim-Tex catalog is chock-full of solutions for very specific problems. Need something to quickly to cover the exposed surface of a door jamb? Try Fast Caps. Need to protect the finish around your ceiling trusses from movement during the winter months? Go with our Truss Backing Angle. But when it comes to your basic 90-degree corners, it’s tough to beat the easy spray-and-staple installation and clean finish of our flagship vinyl Corner Bead & Archway, often simply referred to by its SKU, 4010. If you’ve never had the pleasure of using this tried-and-true corner bead, you don’t have to take our word for it — in this video, social media’s favorite finisher Lydia Crowder, AKA Drywall Shorty, shows you how to install vinyl corner bead, and explains why it’s such a popular addition to any finisher’s toolkit.
Drywall Shorty Shows You How to Install Vinyl Corner Bead
The first step in learning how to install vinyl corner bead is to gather the proper tools; to do this properly, you’ll need a can of our 847 Spray Adhesive and a staple gun.
Hit both the corner bead and the drywall with a light coat of adhesive, wait a minute for it to get tacky, and apply the bead to your corner. Press firmly to make sure your bead is really stuck into place, then affix the bead to the wall with half-inch staples every six to eight inches. (If you weren’t able to acquire a can of the 847 Spray, you’ll need to double up your staples, applying them every two to three inches.)
