Drywall window trim
I’m in need of some tips and suggestions to trim out around the inside window sills with drywall. The windows don’t fit perfectly within the rough opening making it hard to get a nice clean reveal. Is there a good way to shim drywall? I am a card carrying DITY (Do-it-to-yourselfer). Thanks
Shim with whatever will work to bring it to the right plane. Wood/cardboard/shim stock/adhesive. Being able to secure the sheetrock to something firm is important. Hold the returns a strong eighth shy of the window and use L-bead (staple it on) to form a nice crisp straight line to finish to. There's "tearaway" L bead which keeps what you're finishing to, clean, then tear the protection away, caulk the transition from drywall/L bead to window.
