Best drywall mud for crack resistance?
I replaced drywall in a crack prone area. While I may have now finally addressed the underlying cause of past cracks, IÂd still like to use a drywall taping compound that is as resistant to cracks as possible
So which one is more resistant to cracking?
1) The vinyl based, drying type or
2) The setting type ?
I visited some DIY sites for advice and came away with the impression that the setting type is stronger (e.g. more difficult to sand). However, I think that, in my case, crack resistance will eventually have to do more with flexibility rather than strength. In that case, the drying type, being Vinyl based, may perhaps be more flexible, and thus, more crack resistant?
