Drywall: Finish

► Joint compound and tape should conform to ASTM C475 Treatment Materials for Gypsum Wallboard. Premixed compounds shall be used and kept from freezing. Edge and corner trim should be protected from damage before installation.

► Ceilings will be finished the same as walls unless notified otherwise. Ceiling coverage shall be uniform with no thin or missed spots, and must be uniform from room to room.
► All corners, lines of tray, and vault ceilings shall have beads and be installed per the manufacturer’s instructions. No metal corners are acceptable. If metal corners are found, it will be the responsibility of the Subcontractor to remove the metal corners and replace with bead corners.
► There should be no areas of raised fibers due to over-sanding.
► Subcontractor is responsible for cleaning up all drywall mud from floors.
► After primer coat of interior paint is applied to walls, Subcontractor is responsible for touch-up on walls and ceilings at no additional charge.
