    Well from some of the past threads we already know what a pain in the butt bull nose is to install. So how do you think it stacks up against shafer/chafer(sp?) bead? FYI 3 years ago I did a 20,000sf house(with a ton of arches) in experimental chafer bead and since it's really taken off in this...

    Just wanted to know everyone's techniques for getting those outside bullnose corners to match up to a tight 90 around windows and such. Does anyone find the 2-way plastic bullnose corners helpful or is simply cutting the best way? Thanks, Jon
