1. If you are working on a tapered seam rather than a flat seam, it’s best to use
the thicker fiberglass mesh tape.
2. If the seam is flat, both paper drywall tape and fiberglass mesh tape are ideal.
Mesh joint tape, on the other hand, tends to stick out and thus looks lumpy.
3. For stress joints such as door and window corners, consider using fiberglass mesh tape.
4. Paper drywall tape and Metal corner tape are both ideals for use inside corners.
Summary： While paper drywall tape is stronger and more versatile than other options, fiberglass
mesh tape offers better moisture resistance and a user-friendly learning curve. Ultimately, your choice depends on where you want to use the drywall tape, the type of installation, and personal preference.
