    I have just moved into a new home [not newly built] and the tape between ceiling and plaster board-walls is coming unstuck showing horrible cracks etc.
    What is the easiest way to repair these, the ceiling is artexed.
    Thanks.

    Got a pic? Scrim tape wouldn’t normally come unstuck, as it’s buried in plaster. Might wanna check possible causes ie movement between wall and ceiling before repairing

    I think that’s the paper tape they use for tape and joint rather than skimming, you may be able to just stick it back down.
