    @TheAxecutioner the only reason it will crack is if you leave too much mud
    right in the corner as the mud will shrink and crack. this goes for any
    application. the key is to sand down the corner to where you almost expose
    the tape right in the corner. experience will tell you when its just right.

    @dingdong009 it is easy to totally fill a bead in 2 coats. the key is
    setting the bead tight against the corner where less fill is required. it
    does three things: uses less mud, drys faster and makes base trim look
    straighter.

    @TheCactus71 You can’t do 2 coats, or else your beads won’t b filled
    properly, and if you do you have to use thicker mud, also u gotta make sure
    ur bevel tapes fill in th ebevel completely, or else there’ll be hollows
    spots. And you don’t have to prefill, if you know what your doing. First
    coating the first day only applie if everything is dried properly from
    tapping, which 9/10 times the tape is still wet, if and if u coat while
    it’s still wet it’ll shrink that much more.

    fantastic video! Thank you for the post. I do all sorts of remodeling and I
    have to tackle drywall from time to time. I am by no means a pro at it, but
    this video is helping me improve the craft. Thanks again!

    Isn’t the corner more likely to crack when you do each side of a corner on
    a different day? I am not trying to be a smart ass, i am asking your
    opinion. To me it seems like it would lose the strength of having
    continuous mud that continously dries thru the whole corner which would
    make it more likely to crack than if both sides were mudded together. I
    guess what i’m really asking is: have you seen corners crack using this
    system or is it just as good? thanks 🙂

    @vxAREKxv pre fill any gaps in the seams then tape. You can first coat the
    same day. Second coat the next day and if completely dry you may finish
    coat the next day. If no pinhole are visible you can sand.

    Im a do it your selfer….and this tip really makes sense…. I just did
    two rooms and the corners are a real booger. I just got them close with the
    spoon, let em set up overnight and spray textured the crap out of
    everything. And it turned out pretty good! But i do like this method

  11. sfaster

    That’s how to do it…………..I love when homeowners try to do both
    sides together. They usully give up and drink beer.

    First timer (finished my garage after 10 years of living here). Your video
    was extremely helpful to me today as I textured. Drywallers are grossly
    underpaid and under appreciated. Now I know first hand that this is a real
    skill and is difficult to master.

    @lovesomecujo,,, if you ever work over an area that was wallpapered,
    beware. The adhesive WILL leach through everything.White bisque SG 4×4 and
    the Brite White grout for example ,WILL turn yellow,it WILL also penetrate
    the body and guess what.You guessed it. Next step?, common sense,which is
    not too common.It’s quicker to remove the board.

    this shit really blows i mean blows iv done alot of it in hotels prime the
    walls though and get big text machine and use a spray sheild to knock down
    what a mess

  15. mikeinchgo

    Only an asshole like MY RETARD WOULD LEAVE COMMENTS LIKE this but if he
    lived on the top floor of a building where the genius carpenters in 1967
    NAILED the drywall to the roof joists, and the nails kept popping through
    because of constant movement of the roof over the years, HE MIGHT WANT A
    KNOCK DOWN FINISH so MYRETARD? You can shut the fuck up now.

    I’ve never done this before but I am looking for videos on how to do it…
    I noticed you didn’t move your trough in a consistent way across the wall,
    using different movements the entire time. Does that give you the best
    results or was that just the way you figured out how to do it.

  17. gotlogg

    I’ve done this in rooms to hide imperfections and it looked great. As
    opposed to trying to fix bad work that has ten layers of paint on it. If I
    was starting with new walls I would recommended priming first.

    wow.. Im a Drywaller but in Australia, and i can say we do it things
    differently and i believe its easier. Great job guys looks good.

  19. randalljames1

    why would the knockdown remove a lot of dry mud? I just did this and
    nothing got cut off, just “flattened” out.. there was no dry material at
    all much less any removed..

  20. msakowski

    I have been told that if you use the larger opening, then you can reduce
    the PSI to as little as 20-30 psi. And, the compound may be ready to knock
    down in as few as 10 min. You should always spray and knock down some
    texture on a sample panel, or leftover scrap of drywall first, to see what
    works for you.

    I just hired a guy that does tract houses to do one room for me. He used
    the same tool to do the knockdown that these guys are using. What’s a
    “knock down trial”?

  22. DICACIO1

    YES, and it works great for texturing walls and ceilings. knock down time
    is about 2O to 30 minutes depending on room temperature and/or weather
    outside. If floor fans are used for a quicker drying method, knock down
    time will be faster.

  23. HumpinGrannys

    You fuckin retards dont even paint first. Stupid stunned pricks. Idiots
    like you put these videos up on youtube then people watch and say…oh i
    can do this no problem…fuck their job up then have to pay 3x the amount
    to have it fixed. Dont do knockdown on walls either its stupid, hire a
    decent taper!!
