By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Fast set 20 mud
FibaFuse® paperless tape 
Mud pan 
Wall knife

Mr. G. Asperat saw my magnetic advertisement on my truck. He called for a little job that needed to be finished.

This post shows the seven steps to repair small wall damage and use a new wall tape called FibaFuse tape to seal the edge of the new wall board.

Step 1: Fig.1 above shows the damage, wall board was replaced with a new piece and the seams need to be sealed with paper tape and joint compound. 
Step 2: Fig.2 shows fast set lite 20® a quick joint compound. This joint compound when mixed with water dries fast and does a great job.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows mixing the compound with water until smooth like creamy peanut butter.

Step 4: Fig.4 shows the mud being applied to the wall seam. The tape is then placed on top of the mud and flatten out. The tape does not float like paper tape or like fiberglass tape. For wall repair this is the perfect type of tape to use.
