Forum Title: Prefill with Liquid Nails
<P>Sometimes the hangers will put a header or butt joint right in line with a door or window opening. This makes for a very weak joint with a high likelihood of it cracking in the future.</P> <P> </P> <P>I got to wondering if the joint could be made stronger by prefilling with something strong like Liquid Nails. I think you would want to apply a generous amount to the joint, then wipe it hard to force it deep into the joint so that it is completely filled - length, width and depth.</P> <P> </P> <P>Then you would tape it as usual. I'm thinking this would be a lot stronger than just prefilling with mud. Has anybody tried this?</P>
