Drywall Finishing Manual.
Lengert, Gerald
This manual, a self-study guide for apprentices in the drywall finishing trade in British Columbia, attempts to establish standards for the trade. It tells how to produce a properly taped and filled drywall surface and describes what that surface should look like. The standards emphasize quality work that can be realistically achieved on the job. Wherever possible the manual divides aspects of drywall finishing into step-by-step procedures. Safe, efficient use of the body in performing finishing tasks is stressed in the procedures. Besides procedures, the manual also deals with knowledge related to drywall finishing. The manual consists of 11 modules covering the following topics: filling compounds, safety, applying bead, taping and wiping tapes, filling, texturing, repairs and corrections, factors affecting drywall finishing, working efficiently, maintenance of tools and machines, and estimating. Each module contains an introduction that describes the contents of the module; an information section illustrated with tables, line drawings, and photographs; a summary; and exercises. An answer key completes the manual. (KC)
