Drywall  /  September 28, 2020

Why Do Cracks Keep Showing Up in Your Drywall?

Picture this: you noticed a few cracks on your drywall and acted fast to have them repaired ASAP. However, a few years or even just months after that, you notice that the cracks have returned. Recurring drywall cracks are a common issue, but what exactly causes them, and how do you deal with them for good?

Poor Installation

Sometimes, drywall cracks keep reappearing because of poor installation. Installation of the material might not have been done properly, creating air pockets underneath that can serve as weak points for cracks to reappear. Sure, the cracks can be sealed, but the weak point is still there, so the problem is likely to return.

Foundation Issues

A more serious cause of recurring drywall cracks are problems with the foundation. The cracks show up when sections of the foundation have shifted. This is very serious and requires immediate attention. In the worst case scenario, problems with the foundation could lead to significant structural damage to the entire home.

Regular Inspections

Regular inspections will help you spot early signs of drywall cracking. Aside from being able to get rid of the cracks immediately, it’s also important for detecting early signs of problems with your foundation even before things get worse. This could be the difference between saving a few thousand dollars worth of repairs and dealing with major repairs and renovations down the road.

The Importance of Proper Installation

A lot of cracks wouldn’t even show up in the first place if the drywall was installed properly. This is why our experts recommend leaving drywall installation to certified experts. Having the experts work on your drywall also helps because the drywall could also be protected by product and service warranties.
