Caulking corners helps prevent future paint repairs.
Lonnie Cox, CGR, sales manager for Brothers Strong in Houston, used to own his own drywall company and has turned his tricks of the drywall trade into innovative remodeling so-lutions in the field.
Cox remains on the lookout for new solutions. "I sometimes just go to the big-box stores to walk the aisles to expose myself to tools and materials," he says. "I take the time to look at the new stuff. You have to be willing to experiment."
