I have a new build house(3yrs old) where the builders have used ceiling tape. Although the ceiling tape is NOT coming away, there are definite "gaps/cracks" where the tapes are. What is the recommended process to fill this in? When I had my 6month shrinkage check up - they re-plastered these areas - but I wondered if I could use some filler? If so, what is the recommended one?
The most flexible filler is the decoartors caulk or "filler in a tube" in our filling cracks around the house project . You will neeed the applicator gun also. Its easy to apply and when puished into the gaps actually moves as they expand and contract so will last much longer than a rigid filler.
Thanks for the reply.
What if the ceiling tape is coming away? Do I glue it back? and if so with what? or can I apply some plaster or filler to go over the top? I have a friend who had exactly the same problem, and they tried to pull the tape off completely and made the situation much worse!!
