    Default Advise on Fixing loose drywall tape

    I have a few areas in my house that the drywall taping was not installed properly and has separated from the drywall. It has been painted several times. Is there any way to repair this taping, it looks so unsightly and I hate to paint over it yet again.

    Remove the loose tape and retape the areas. This will require smoothing out the area and retexturing as well. When you paint the patch, apply two coats of primer to the patch only and at least one coat of paint to the patch only, then repaint the entire wall to blend.
