Have a customer that wants to change his outside edge on existing drywall
with the new look, rounded corners. Done plenty of drywall but never done
this. Would it be wiser to take off the metal edging or just apply the new
rounded corner on the edge? Not sure how it would look because of the build
up of mud already applied to the edge. Any suggestions??
Thanks in advance.
I think that you will need to remove the existing corner bead. You may have
to cut back some of the drywall as well. Check with the manufacturer.

Good links- especially this one.
I put some bullnose in my bathroom and have never been happy with the
way the rubber baseboard/cove molding looked wrapping around it. I'm
going to look for some of those adapters that ease into a square base.
Sure you can put it right over existing cornerbead as long as the old bead
is solid and isn't cracked and falling off. Just buy vinyle bullnose (8 or
10 ft.) and a can of 3 M drywall adhesive spray to glue it on. Staple where
needed. DO NOT NAIL VINYL BULLNOSE...Apply mesh tape down both edges of the
bullnose.Do not get mesh tape on the actual bullnose part you see after
mudding Just the edge that gets buried in mud to make it stronger..Mix a
little Sheetrock Brand Easysand 90 or 45 Setting Type Joint Compound and mud
away....Regular joint compound is fine for the second and third coats...Done
it MANY times...Good luck...
Thanks, I've been reading a little on it. The build up of mud from the
existing metal corner bead won't be a problem? Have you heard of or used
that No Coat Product? And have you ever had a problem with it failing. This
is a very high end house and don't want any return visits, and how do you
treat the baseboads? Do you get the already squared corners or do you let
the Trim Carpenter deal with it?

Benick is either mistaken or he is using something I've never seen. If
you plan on using bullnose you need to leave room for it. You've
either got to remove the old bead or put up new sheetrock over it.
Here's some pictures that show how is way is impossible-
Bah Humbug! The grinch is here.
Why would someone want to replace durable metal with cheap plastic that will
break when bumped?
I think you already have received a couple of good suggestions if you must
do this. :)

Sounds like this can be a challenge without the proper materials
and/or special tools. Then there is mesh taping the seams and some
hoping that doesn't crack in time. I guess this changes the baseboard
and any crown too. Gotta lathe?
