Drywall Finishing Problem
Not likely the tape is buckling at this stage of construction. After a couple of years, maybe.... after the lumber dries and shrinks. The "eyeball" lights you mention shining on the wall are probably the cause along with the finishing not being to the proper standard. My guess (sight unseen) is that you are actually just seeing the joints. The finished and sanded joints are actually smoother than the face paper on the drywall. an intense light shining directly on the wall (whether from a fixture or natural sunlight) will show the joints. Piling more mud on the joints and repainting will not help at all. Are the "lines" visible all of the time, or just when the lights are on?? Do the lights, by any chance, have halogen bulbs (even brighter than normal bulbs)?? In a situation where intense/direct lighting shines on a wall, a level 5 finish is needed to keep the joints from showing. Meaning........the entire wall needs to have the same finished texture. (SLICK!!) At this point, the solution is to "glaze" coat the entire wall surface with joint compound, sand and repaint. FLAT paint is your "friend" and a fairly long nap roller (to give just a hint of texture) should correct the problem. IF my guess is correct in this situation, the drywall contractor should have been made aware ahead of time that "specialty" lighting was to be used in a certain area so he could plan accordingly ahead of time, thus avoiding the problem. (If he knows his business.) Tearing out and refinishing is not the solution unless I'm way off in my assessment. Don't know if it's possible to post a pic that would show the problem, but it would help.
