remodeling


I now have an archway to a small room and my wife wants to close it up with just a door and this is what I am worried about.

The existing wall is finished and has a metal corner bead, will I have a problem blending both walls when I close the wall and add new drywall, do I have to take metal bead off to be shore it does not crack?

Please help

Welcome aboard.

That is what I would do is remove the corner bead, I think it will blend in easier that way.

Metal bead, baseboard and drywall all need to go from floor to ceiling in that area in order to reframe for the opening.

Yes, it is best to remove the bead---or the wall will be to thick and cause a hump---it is often best to cut back the old drywall sot the thick corner coat of mud is gone ---
