The "tape" on the dry wall on the wall at the ceiling in our bonus room is pulling away from the wall. The walls are painted white. My home is only two years old and I need to know howw to repair this before it gets worse.

only way is to cut out the tape that has pulled away and apply joint coumpound and new tape,let it dry and apply two more coats of coumpound.

Do you know what is causing the taping to come loose? I would determine the cause before spending any time trying to fix the damage so far. It is often a sign of moisture behind the sheetrock which is a tough problem to remedy. If the house is only 2 years old, I would be calling the builder to have him address this condition. It can often be caused by improper ventillation to an area that is exposed to freezing temperatures. The relative humidity in the area where you live can also a major factor. I hope for your sake that it is no big deal and that the advice for replacing it is all you need. Best of luck.
