    Is AP the same as Synko Joint. It also shrinks and locks. I checked my patches from the other day and found a lot of fibers from the Mapei Fleece where raised. I tried double hitting it and that was a mistake. The first round I let the Joint Compound set up over night and had much better results.

    You just can't rush a drywall job!

    I just googled Synko Joint. Close enough. Anything that requires air to dry vs *hot mud* compresses in nature as it dries --- pulling the paper/mesh tight onto the joint/mud.

    I've learned so many tricks over the years. If you are getting grain raise * whether it be from drywall paper, taping joint paper, etc*, after the 1st coat or even before - I hit it with a thin coat of shellac based primer - BIN red- and that does the trick.

    So I spoke with my plumber yesterday and it turns out this local company can only pull a new line from the City Connection to the house. As far as in the home they can not. So out comes the sawall! lol

    Ian starts today. Out with the old and in with the new.

    So my plumber found two leaks in the original plumbing lines that ran through under the floors. He needed to pull back the carpet and open up both subfloor and drywall. The leaks have been fixed and the sound of running water stopped.

    What a nightmare and all that water could not be good for the foundation of the home. It's time to break out the drywall tools and get this repair finished up!
