At some point, most homes experience loose, bubbled, or wrinkled drywall tape. Usually, there is no need to be alarmed, it just needs to be touched up or re-taped.
Drywall tape is normally embedded in drywall compound, but mistakes in the original installations, such as poor application, as well as other factors can cause minor or severe bubbling or wrinkling of dry wall tape over time. Small cracks in drywall on the inside of wall surfaces that reoccur are rarely a structural problem and can be fixed fairly easily by a drywall taper.
Many homeowners attempt to do drywall crack repair themselves, but to ensure correct taping of your drywall, the drywall taper specialists at Drywall Repair Tucson are glad to assist you and guarantee a finished product that looks great.
Common Reasons for Taping Problems
1. There was insufficient or improper application of drywall compound during initial installation. This is the most common reason drywall crack repair is required.
2. Moisture or dampness caused the tape to loosen, from high moisture content during initial application or a high humidity situation later. Even too much water in paint on the drywall could cause it to come loose.
3. Blisters, also called bubbles, and wrinkles that occur when there were incorrect techniques used in the application of the drywall compound.
4. Sometimes movement of the wood from moisture content changes, seasonal movement of a slab or foundation, settlement or other soil issues affect the taping.
From small taping jobs to correct drywall cracks and other damage caused by incorrect application of drywall material or drywall mud and moisture problems that damage drywall. Contact Drywall Repair Tucson today to discuss a plan for your taping needs.
