How to deal
with rounded drywall outside corners.
corner beads on the outside corners of sheetrock,
and plaster walls are now being widely used. While
softer treatment of a 90 degree outside corner is visually
it is hard to find moldings that properly wrap
around the corner with
that nice curved effect.
Because of this availability problem most installers end
up just making miter cuts on the straight mouldings to make
a faceted or pointed outside corner. This
leaves a gap between
molding and the curved corner bead that they then fill with caulk.
this type of installation works it is not the best
for wrapping baseboards, chair rails and crown
around these bullnose radius corners. At best
it tends to look somewhat unprofessional and at worst the caulk
filler dries out over time leaving a recess where dust and dirt collect.
We make crown, baseboard and chair rail corner blocks for
outside drywall wall corners. We supply these
with 3/4" to 4" long straight legs just as shown
above. While this makes for a somewhat more expensive
sheetrock corner block this extra cost is offset by a noticeable
labor savings. Since our corner block / moulding
goes all the
way around the corner and continues
down the adjoining wall on
either side it makes for a simpler joint at the straight molding.
