No. The gap is along the edge where the ceiling sheet meets the wall.

Drywall FAQ - Common Questions Answered, + Tips and Tricks!


What is the easiest product for beginners to use for inside corners? I'd like to avoid the paper tape if possible. The walls were already drywalled and painted by a previous owner.

1) The joint where walls meet ceiling?

2) Inside corner of soffit?

Thanks.

Trim Tex doesn't make any tape to the best of my knowledge. No Coat makes 8' pre cut inside corners, pricey but easy and perfect corners. Strait flex also makes one called perfect 90 again a little pricey. Don't know what you have against paper tape, but my advice is use anything but the mesh. There is a great new product out there called FibaFuse but it is hard to use in corners.
