Butt Joints at new drywall and existing corner round
If I am adding a frame and drywall partition wall to an existing opening that has rounded corner, do I need to remove the corner round on the existing material in order to get an acceptable butt joint between old and new material.
Factors to consider: I will be doing the framing and drywall, but a pro will do my tape and texture. I just don't want to leave him with a problem that is impossible to fix.
I am doing this on two walls basically. I am attaching a 2x4 framing with sole plate and header plate in existing 2 x 4 finished openings. That part should be very straightforward.
Yes I would remove the rounded corner and put a new one up. This covers the edge of the rock. If you butt up to it the joint will crack. If the finisher has to tape that joint it will cause more problems and I doubt it will hold up.
