We are here to show you how to fix a corner! Follow these steps and relax. Corner bead is used where two pieces of drywall meet to form a corner. Corner bead is available in a variety of materials, including metal, paper, and vinyl.
Cut the damaged corner bead horizontally, both above and below the damaged area, with a hacksaw.
Use a utility knife to cut vertically along the drywall, connecting the top and bottom cuts from the hacksaw on the left and right sides. Remove the damaged piece.
Cut a new piece of corner bead to fill the gap and attach it to the wall with nails or the manufacturer’s recommended fastener or adhesive.
Apply joint compound to both sides of the corner, covering the bead patch to smooth rough edges and cover any seams, feathering the edges. Let dry and sand smooth.
Finish all repairs with a light sanding, primer, and paint.
