Drywall corner/against existing tile (repair)


starting a new thread since this question is very specific and the old thread was getting long.


How would you handle the corner for the section I am repairing?

Drywall corner/against existing tile (repair)


what a freaking mess!!! i didnt follow the old thread but i looked it over. this should have a been a gut and redo, but i know some people just cant cause of money, time, etc. so to fix it up to make it look good for now.
cut the metal corner bead straight
buy another piece of metal corner bead
cut a piece about 3" and fit it half up behind the existing piece.
cut a piece of corner bead to fit and stick it in there( this my take some playing around it looks pretty messy in that groove)
put some screws in it so it lines up with the old corner bead and put screws in the old to.
looks like the old is rippled from pulling out the old nails/screws
hammer it back smooth straight.
check it over with a drywall knife to make sure you wont have anything show through
mud the joint and the bead.
sand out and paint
put your trim back on.
before you put your base back on cut the drywall that sitting at the floor atleast 1/2-1" being that close to a tub water will get on the floor and the drywall will wick up the water and it'll look same same in a year or so. and im guessing the picture is in black and white cause you dont want us to know that its just a regular piece of drywall there and not the moisture/mold drywall but whateva you just want it to look good haha!

thanks for detailed reply prince!



I didn't use greenboard. Had some 1/2" in the garage. And, like you said, I am saving to gut it and do it right.

Prince,

Followed your directions exactly. Getting the metal corner bead in was a pain, but I did manage to. I had a difficult time with the metal in one area, couldn't get it in flush, so there is a gap. I decided I would have to live with it and attempt to conceal. A relatively short term fix to a bathroom that needs to a major redo.

As discussed in the previous post, I removed the mold that was on visible, applied silicone caulk to the areas around the tub where the prev owner put grout.



Closer look at problem area.


Still have to do some sanding and one more coat of mud.

Again, thanks for your time

Thanks for the help,

I still have to clean this up slightly and prime. The metal protrudes slightly. The best I could do with the new metal piece, given that I couldn't get the old piece out 100%. This will have to do until I can gut the bathroom. Maybe a corner protector to cover this?

Now I will move on to repairing this piece. Do I just cut out/remove the drywall that is cracked?

looks good. i'd fill the small holes between the your mud job and the tile with some sheetrock. then i'd chaulk the joint between the drywall and the tile then paint.
for cracks in your drywall i cut out the crack like a "V" groove then put you tape over then coat it with mud
