labuck710July 28, 2013

i have cracked corners in my walls of our home, i was told to use
durabond 90, what is the procedure of prepairing the walls and the ratio of the durabond90,? my husband is just learning to do all this

Durabond90 is a hard setting wallboard joint compound. The premixed joint compound is softer and sands easier.

The corners (the cracks) need to be taped with fiberglass or paper tape.

You husband should go to a big box store - and look at the books on installing drywall.

Assuming this is wallboard and not plaster.
