Is it considered acceptable in drywall / sheetrock work to use caulk to finish an interior corner instead of using tape with joint compound?
This is not my own DIY idea – this was suggested to me by a drywall contractor.
In this specific instance it was a wall-to-ceiling corner which is about 26' long.
My sense of things is that this would be a shortcut, and if caulking was a high quality substitute for taping then no one would ever use tape. I'm pretty sure caulk would be more prone to cracking over time, especially since caulk shrinks and the joint would have no reinforcement.
But there could certainly be methods and/or products I'm not familiar with!
