As a pro drywall finisher, how would you finish an entryway? Normally, you’d probably grab a couple thin sheets of drywall to cover each of the exposed surfaces of the door jamb, and start hanging those before installing two 90-degree corner beads for either side of each drywall surface. It’s no big deal for a seasoned finisher, but multiply that entryway by every door jamb on the job, plus doing the same process for every closet, wall end and knee wall you may have, and you’re starting to talk about a lot of time, a lot of drywall scrap and a lot of spare corner beads — that is, if you do things the traditional way. If you do things the Trim-Tex way, you can smash that entire process we described into one handy accessory, one bead to install and finish. We’re talking, of course, about Fast Caps. Here’s how to save time and material using Fast Caps, with some help from our friends over at Refresh Home Improvements.
The guys at RHI — Dan and Steve Tuer — took some time out from their latest renovation project to show off how they used Fast Caps to finish a trimless, open entryway. Check out the video below to learn, step by step, how to install a Fast Cap, and see how much of a time-saver these unique beads can be:
