Wallboard Seams; To Tape or Not to Tape? A show of hands

YNWAJuly 14, 2014

There are some really great threads already on 'how and why and what'.

I'd like to ask a simple question: For those of you that used drywall compound with NO tape to fill the seams: How long has it been and who's walls cracked and who's are still A okay?

Cheers for reading!

I tried it without tape in the small bath. It was cracked within a year. Edited to add: I thought I'd give it a shot since the joints were pretty close and even. Unlike some of the others I've done.
