Using FibaFuse on walls/ceilings (post #216520)

Hi,

Looking for people's experience using fibafuse sheets (or a similar product) to repair walls and ceiling - meaning using the 36" sheets.

I have a number of areas in rooms that have horse hair plaster and thought this would be faster than using 2.5" tape.

My drywalling skills are decent - I'm not fast but my finished product is good.

Any thoughts or experiences are welcome!

Thanks!

I think it would work well for you. I'd also use bag mix rather than bucket mud as it's a stronger product.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the info.  A bag mix like a plaster mix that hardens in 90 minutes, somehing like that? I cant recall the name of the 90 minute mix i have....

Wallpaper liner is a product we’ve used in the past to solve the same problem.  My paper hanger has bailed me out on a reasonable way to hide firm but minor cracking in old plaster.  Depending on the severity of the situation, it doesn’t need a skim coat.

Hmmm, never thought of that, but will check it out.  Trying to NOT repair individual cracks as it will take forever...

 

Thank you!
