Drywall tape - paper or mesh?

Posted by Dave on September 18th, 2000 09:41 AM

I hate using the fiberglass mesh tape when patching plaster. It's too thick and takes a bajillion coats to cover every last thread. I think the paper tape is much easier to work with.

Is the mesh tape better in any way at preventing cracks from returning? ... because otherwise, I'm going to use paper.
