Tomorrow my friend is have a new preformed counter top installed. While it out I want to cut out some of the drywall be hind the back splash area to run some new wiring. I will save the cutouts and using some plywood backing strips screw them back in place.
My question is what should I uses to “seal” the joints. The area won’t be seen, but I figure that something is needed stop any potention air leaks. This is on an outside wall and there might not be any insulation.
I have never done any drywall before. And I will have very limited time to be able to work behind their. I will know tomorrow, but it might be only a few minutes or one hour at the most.
I am think about just running some caulk in the joints.
I know that I will probably get flamed for posting this in FINE Home Building, but look at this way the electrical will be FINE after I get done with it. I just don’t have controll over the rest of it.
