Dyrawll gap with 45 degree wall
 
I have a wall at 45 degrees to each other. However, the walls do not butt up together and was wondering how to fix this issue? Do I fill it up with Durabond 90 min, tape, then mud again after? If I do this will it crack?

Or is there another way to tackle this?

What I would do is cut off some of the inside corner so the gap is not so big. Like a miter doesn't have to be flush but a lot smaller. Just thought how are you going to screw this to the side? Then you could use a corner bead like no-coat which is good for off angles. And I'm not to ask why you would finish a corner like that.

It's quite a difficult task to cut the angles. What about Trim Tex? Would this be a better solution???

What you need to do is go on Trim Tex website they make several beads for off angles. I would guess you will need an over sized bead and they make them.

THanks ToolSeeker! I'll do that, I feel more confident with the Trim Tex stuff! Cheers!

There is also a standard metal tape, (paper tape with two strips of metal inside. Made for any angle corner inside. Most drywallers around here would fill with durabond and bed the metal tap in it just like any other joint.
