Drywall crack causes

Cracks can be caused by poor taping, moisture and house settling. The location of the crack gives you a clue as to the type of problem.

Since we’re a foundation repair company, let’s focus on drywall cracks that can be a sign of a foundation problem.

Cracking or separation of the wall and ceiling are a sure sign that your home is experiencing foundation settlement – or you’ve hung your flat screen TV from the drywall instead of a beam. Either way, it’s not good.

These types of cracks are almost always a sign that your foundation is experiencing settlement.

Covering up these cracks with a patch will not fix the underlying problem – foundation settlement. That’s a problem that’s best left to the experts.

DIY drywall crack repair – don’t do it!

A patch will not address your home’s settlement problem. Instead the crack will re-appear as your home continues to settle. Once you fix the underlying problem, you can repair the cracked drywall.

If you notice gaps and cracks in your drywall around doors and windows, give us a call at 770-419-9111 or fill out our contact form and one of our customer service representatives will contact you.
