Question

Peeling drywall-tape corners


I have a couple corners where the tape seems to have lifted slightly away from the wall. You can see a crack going up much of the corner, which apparently is the tape cracking the paint and pulling away from the wall.

Can I just sand and mud over this, or do I need to rip the tape off the whole corner and re-do it?

Thanks!

Whoops. I just realized it's not tape, it's metal corners.

So what can I do? Screw/nail it down then sand/mud?
