Removing Drywall Tip Video
Revised February 2018
When getting ready to tear down drywall, it's fun to do demolition work. But don’t make this rookie mistake.
In the corners, the drywall probably has a paper tape that bends around the corner. You don’t want to mess up the other wall, you are not removing. If you just tear into the drywall and begin pulling it out, you will tear into the corner tape and pull it from the other wall.

To avoid damaging the second wall, take a razor knife and score or cut through that paper tape right down the middle of the corner. Do this for the entire length of the seam. Now when you remove drywall, it won’t transfer over to the other wall and damage it.
This little demo tip will save you time and money on your next drywall removal project.
