Handling Seams when Applying the Material
Handling Seams between the Studs
When the length of the material does not fit your entire framing, seams can occur between studs. Overlap approximately 2" of material over the next panel. Cut away the layer overlapping top and bottom plates of the framing. Seal seam with 2' wide vinyl tape strip.
Note about overlapping SoundSafe: Be sure to avoid putting two layers of overlapping material on the framing. This will avoid any issues with installing drywall flush to the wall.
