Drywall corner bead for novice
New home owner here. I am going to install 7 panels of drywall on one side of the garage. Other than taping the joints, I also need to put corner beads on 1 outside corner, 3 inside corners, and wall to ceiling corner.
What kind of corner beads would you guys suggest, for such a newbie like me?
Here are the options based on my research
1. Metal corner bead (https://www.homedepot.ca/product/bailey ... 1000182094). I think most pros use this - cheap but not very DIY friendly
2. Paper faced metal bead (https://www.homedepot.ca/product/cgc-sh ... 1000109056) Based on reviews I think this one is easier to apply than opt. 1
3. Vinyl Corner bead (https://www.homehardware.ca/en/1-14-x-1 ... lts%20page) Seems that this one is easier to apply with just adhesive and staples. however, some people said it is thicker which requires more coats to hide the edges, and easier to crack
4. Strait-Flex / No-coat (https://www.homedepot.ca/product/cgc-st ... 1000761167) Most expensive option. I believe this is also vinyl so it has the same drawback as option 3, and this product is more for off-angle applications?
Costs are not the biggest concern. Just would like to find the easiest / safest way for a new DIYer.
A separate question - can I use sheetrock 45 to tape these beads? I have a left-over bag from the contractor who did our basement reno. It will be great that I can just recycle it.
