Drywall tape: paper or mesh?
Can someone give a drywall wannabe some insight as to when it's best to use mesh drywall tape and when to use paper tape? Do the professionals prefer one over the other? On a previous post someone mentioned that you can use mesh tape on the tapered seams as long as you use a setting compound to embed it. Can you also use it on butt joints as well?
At first glance it looks like using pre-folded paper tape in the corners would be much easier than trying to embed mesh tape. Is this correct?
