    Thid depends on how big the gap is doesnt it, if its so big that it will crack out then it needs to be filled and have either scrim or paper put across it then a top coat aplied once dry. IMHO.

    Yeah I take your point, but the gap shouldnt be that big that you need to put scrim or paper tape over it, surely?

    There shouldnt be a gap at all but there all ways is in my experience, by the by on the job Im on they silicone around the windows because calk dries and cracks but even silicone will only cover a gap of 2-3mm at best because they like to see the silicone bead about the same on every window.

    All comes down to my old saying "You end up with what you started with"
