    Default taping online. :surreal


    I was looking for a forum of taping information.. and found nothing but manufacturers sites Until I searched using the old Ames Rental style "Bazooka" keyword... and here you are calling auto taping "Ames Taping" Well, English is your language, so that must be right.
    Nice to find a forum about us.
    I own a taping business in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We differentiate our trades into Drywallers, who hang it, and Tapers who finish it.

    my definition of taping business is, one man operation, but a Ltd company :P

    Hi Lightrock. Welcome to the forum.

    As far as I'm aware, you are the first member from North America to join up here. I'm sure your question regarding replacing the drive wheels will be dealt with soon as we are only a new site.

    How is business over in Canada?

    how is business over here... well what i hear from my suppliers desk staff is that most companies are gearing up for more commercial work and getting out of housing, which has tanked. I am noticing it slowing, and a lot more trades dropping in on sites offering to take on work. As someone said in here earlier, do good work, go the extra mile in busy times and contractors will keep you in lean times. I do a lot of basement developments, and take on jobs where the homeowner has hung their own drywall. It takes a special patience. (and a lot of Concrete Fill)

    Welcome to the forum Lightrock!
    New house building has slowed significantly and the money just isn't there anymore as theres 100 guys looking for 1 job which unfortunately drives the price down hard. Looking to do more commercial work and home renovations in the near future.
    Thankfully we still have work on at the moment, its not what it used to be, but it pays the bills for now.
    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.
