Double corner bead repair


The corner bead on one of our bathroom walls started chipping away on both sides. What you see here was removed very easily with a flathead screwdriver.

Our plan is to maybe sand the metal for extra adhesion and cover with Durabond. We're wondering about clearing out the middle section since the two pieces of corner bead are so close together. The part of the wall in between corner bead is on top of greenboard and bonded very well without loose spots or lifting. Will the Durabond adhere better if we redo it all as one piece? If we leave the middle strip, will it make the wall look odd after we try to texture match?

Sorry for the poor color in the photo, the light fixture will be replaced too.

Thanks!

Does the metal flex when you push on it?

Being a bathroom is the metal rusted? If not and it's not loose, just go ahead mud it till it even with the existing. If it needs replacing I use vinyl in bathrooms.

Double corner bead repair


Metal seems securely attached and is held in by screws. I don't notice any areas that flex or spots with rust on them.

The house is about 12 yrs old, but I believe the bathroom has always been used regularly. Mostly the corners were badly chipped and where the corners had chipped you could tell it wasn't attached to the metal anymore.

So consensus is to leave the middle strip on the greenwall and just mud over the metal?

That would be my suggestion.
Now for the other dry wallers out there how many use screws to put up corner bead?
That is the one place I always nails because the screw heads stand proud and are harder to cover.

I run a screw at about every 6 inches. I've never had a problem with my screws standing proud...

Leave the middle part. Just make sure to remove ALL loose pieces of compound. Then, run over it with a coarse or medium sanding pad. You want the edges of the existing compound to have a bit of a chamfer to them.

Some finishers like to run paper tape on top of the corner bead. This helps prevent cracking. If you were to do that, you would want to remove that middle section of compound. I've never worried about it, though.
