Are you Tired of Paint Chipping Off Drywall Corners?
The right kind of drywall corner bead virtually eliminates this problem, and my favorite is a large-radius, plastic drywall corner bead made by a company called Trim Tex. These drywall corners work for new construction or retrofits, anchored only with a coat of spray-on contact cement to both the wall and the back of the corner beading. No nails, as with conventional metal corners.
4 Easy Steps to Damage-Resistant Drywall Corners:
- Glue the plastic beading down.
- Apply several coats of drywall compound to fill the transition between the plastic and the neighboring wall surface.
- Sand this transition smooth.
- Paint the walls, then relax.
Your new drywall corners will resist damage almost as well as the rest of the wall.
