    Hi, what to do about the joint with the ceiling when replacing wall plasterboards and skimming. The ceiling is enormous so I won’t be re-skimming that. If I don’t do anything I’m going to see cracks. Coving isn’t an option

    You will still need to tape it otherwise it will crack.
    Use easi-fill on the ceiling and feather it in over a couple of coats.
