Drywall

Cracking

Problem: Visible joints, ridging and tape delamination of drywall.

Cause: Damaged drywall board edges.

Solutions:

  • Schedule drywall delivery before installing windows or leave key windows out for ease of delivery.
  • Avoid carrying the sheets of drywall great distances or up tight stairways. Consult with the drywall supplier on delivery preferences.
  • Stack the sheets of drywall neatly in the center of the rooms to protect the corners of the boards. Damaged ends of drywall sheets are susceptible to ridging.
  • Avoid temporary outdoor storage. Protect the boards from rain, wet snow and dampness.
