– Column covers have drywall paper on the outside (convex) face, unfinished inside

– Covers have a short flat where the two halves meet. This allows the finisher to ‘bury’ the taped joint within the round profile. This makes finishing easier by avoiding floating out a butt around the curve. A curved sanding block is included to make finishing easier.

– Typically only the end studs are needed. Since the curves are pre-formed, it is not necessary to add multiple studs along the curve to form the drywall around. For diameter 18” and above, additional studs should be added at roughly 16” centers to maintain support.

– For larger columns it is sometimes easier to cinch the two halves together with a belt and ratchet to hold in place while screwing off

– If you need to cut to length, the easiest way is on a table saw. You can cut with a knife but unlike drywall, you have to cut all the way through both faces. You can’t cut one face and snap like drywall
