Drywall sheets didn't meet on a stud


Unfortunately I can't remove the sheet and reinstall as the stairs are already there. Ill cut it back to the studs and reinstall a piece. Thanks for all the info!

Rock is cheap, and yes you can remove it and redo. Always go horizontal on Drywall, never vertical.

If you can move the one sheet say 5/8" out past the other then rip a strip of 1/2" ply say 3-4" wide and slip it in behind, screw both sheets to this and Bob is your uncle.

Not necessarily. Consider all details and decide after weighing pros and cons.
