A lot of us have started to cut corners to maximize profits in this sh!tty economy, what do some of you do? Around here be do a lot of skip trowel and swirl so here's a few things I do. When I tape angles I run them with the bazooka, roll them, then plow them with the anglebox full of topping mud immediately. For hand textures we just Tape, roll, and plow them full. No second coat on angles. We will tape our butts and flats, fill the flats as we wipe with an 8 knife and then box once with a 10 box over that and texture it. We use No-Coat bead, run it through a slot box, stick it, roll it, and immediately stripe it with a six with topping mud, no need to wipe it. Then on second coat we stripe again with an 8 and if the framing is good, it looks good enough. Hot mud and meshing all of our butts and flats in small houses so we can have them ready for texture in one-two days. Spotting screws once with hot mud. I know some will agree and some will say it's low quality but hey, IT PASSES. I will do quality work still if I have to, but with prices getting lower something has to give. What tricks do you use to cut corners?
