A drywall corner roller is an essential part of the finishing process, and it is an easy-to-use tool that is useful for setting tape on both sides of an inside drywall or plaster corner. Made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel or aluminum, this roller is very durable, meaning that the roller can take a lot of abuse and use before needing replacement. Corner rollers are reusable and not necessary to repurchase after every job, and this tool will last for many years if you take care of it properly.
This tool is made with a high-quality cast aluminum roller body. The wheels are surrounded by an aluminum-reinforced stainless steel cover that prevents them from being damaged by rust or when dropped. The handle is a telescopic plastic construction with a contoured design for a comfortable grip. The end of the tool is threaded for extended reach. It is ideal for homeowners and professionals who don’t have long arms.
Corner Rollers are an essential part of the finishing process. They are used to embed drywall paper tape in the corners and prepare them for the angle head of a corner finisher.

How To Use A Drywall Corner Roller
If your corner roller is fresh out of the box, you will want to attach it to a handle then dunk it in a bucket of mud so the roller will have an exceptional finish on the front. You will need your corner roller to be full of mud, so it will leave a layer of mud behind once you use the corner roller.
You will want to start your corner roller in the middle of the corner. If you start at the top or bottom, there is a chance you will drag the tape with the roller instead of embedding it. Once you have gone over the corner tape lightly, go over it again and give it a tight push. After using your corner roller, you can then use a corner flusher. We have corner rollers from multiple brands such as Columbia Tools and Level 5.
