repairing long crack along metal corner bead

That should work with the paper tape hiding the crack. Some pros do this- to metal corner bead- tape over just the outside ends, not the middle of the c.b.; https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q..._KKuN-dhkJrzwA

Older metal c.b.'s show cracks, often from the wood framing expanding/contracting with the seasons or HVAC changes because they are fastened through to that framing rather than just drywall, as are paper-faced metal beads, clinched-on and "speed bead"; http://literature.usg.com/pdf/J1445.pdf


If any ads are present in my answer above, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed, they are there against my permission.
