    The long runs are fine John - What about the corners?

    Sealed Slip Joint question

    John, how much of a gap should you leave with this method between the ceiling and wall??
    Obviously installing the ceiling board is the first thing done. Is there also a gap when you install the ceiling board, leaving it away from where the wall is? or just when you install the wall board up to the ceiling board? or is there a gap for both the ceiling board install AND the Wall board? Hope I explained that properly. Thx John
