Continental Building Products’ Rapid Deco Level 5 System helps ensure a level five finishfast. Comprising Continental’s factory-applied skim-coated Bison Board drywall and complementary joint compound, Rapid Deco takes the guesswork out of on-site applications by incorporating skim coating as part of temperature-controlled, industrial production. Rapid Deco joint compound is specially formulated to match the skim coat.
“You’re going to have a little more labor on the hanging side because Rapid Deco is a little bit heavier, but the product takes away the time associated with taping and skim coating,” says Jeff Dreisewerd, director of operations at Lake St. Louis, Missouri-based TJ Wies Contracting, Inc., who recently installed Rapid Deco at the Crossings at Northwest Plaza project in St. Ann, Missouri. “That can also be an advantage from a project’s outset: when you’re submitting a competitive bid, especially if other people are figuring on hand application, then Rapid Deco can create a big difference.”
