I have 2 repairs to make.
One is about a 3/8" gap next to window trim that I recently replaced when I built new plantation shutters for the window. ( As a side note there are 5 windows and there will be the same repair necessary on all 5 ). The gap extends the length of the window – approx 60".
The other is on a ceiling in a den we recently scraped the popcorn texture from. Beneath it was a patch someone made previously that is not flush with the rest of the ceiling. Would I be better off cutting this out and re-patching with new drywall or just filling in the uneven surface? The difference in height at the maximum is about the thickness of a yardstick ~1/8" – 3/16" or so.
