Re: Fix cracked drywall at doorframe
It looks as though there is a seam at that point which shouldn't be done that way.
When drywalling around a door way the seam should never be at the corners since there will be some movenet at that point and will cause a crack.
Yes, use the fiber mesh tape and use actual joint compound ( not finshing compound ) since it cures very hard.The tape provides strength along with the joint compound. Then use the finshing compound to give you the smooth finish layer.
