Mud also called joint compound
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 applying joint compound inside the door jamb.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows that the joint compound was removed from a new container and applied to the open gaps in the doorway.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the a mud knife was used to apply the mud and make an edge for the corner bead.
