Mr. Victor Longpont hired my services to remove his garage door that had become damaged after a bad rain storm. The door had not been painted for over 30 years, the bottom of the door was damaged by a badly worn door sweep that allowed water into the bottom of the door.
This post shows the six steps to apply interior taping to the door edge. Interior tapping will protect the edges of the walls.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the tools needed to get the job done. Aviation snip to cut the corner bead, wall tape to apply to the wall edges, mud for the wall, razor knife to cut the paper tape edges.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the corner bead with paper edges has been applied to the left side of the door. Fig.3 shows the right side corner bead is being fitted on the wall edges.
