Basic Repair Question...Remove Tape From Crack?


Hi - I have a couple cracks at seams and corners in a customers drywall. Is it best practice to remove the existing tape/texture and retape/texture? or just go over the top? Currently there is a fairly heavy knockdown texture on the walls.

Thank you
