Mud

Drywalled my garage and have lots of large spaces to fill before the real taping and mudding....yeah its hacked..by me
Im just using the garage for practice before i do my basement.
anyhow, what kind of mud do i need to fill some med to large gaps between sheets on the joists.
Do i need to do this at all before i start mud/taping ?

Thanks

How big are the gaps? If they are very large, you should try to fill with a piece of sheet rock. Other wise use all purpose joint compound. Fill all voids and make as even as possible before taping.

Once you fill those and tape, only you will know that they once exisisted.

gaps are not real big, id would say a 1/4 max at the joints.
Trusses were not very square and had a lot of porblems with that.
Anyhow, yeah the max gaps are about 1/4 inch. Thanks

Definitely pre fill. All purpose is good or quick set is even better. Let dry before tapeing

I'm with Coops, definitely pre-fill, I'd suggest picking up a bag of EasySand 90 for the prefill.
