I need to do some home drywall repairs, mostly patching holes and
retaping some failed joints. Could I please get your opinions
regarding my choice of the following products to give the best results?
Holes patched with a new piece of wallboard - tape joints with
fiberglass tape, cover with setting-type compound; second and third
coats with ready-mixed compound.
Retaping failed joints - tape joints with paper tape, embed with
setting-type compound; second and third coats with ready-mixed
For the setting-type compound, which would be best - regular or
light? I understand the sanding difficulties with regular, but want to
get the strongest joint.
For the ready-mixed compound, I get confused with all the available
types - regular, lightweight, all-purpose, multi-use...
Thanks for any help.
