    Our tenant just informed us of the following issue in our (half above-ground) basement bathroom. There appears to be rust and some mold on the ceiling/wall as seen in the pictures below. I have also included an older picture of the entire bathroom so you can get an idea of the layout: Close up...
  2. Drywall & Plaster
    Apparently there was wood paneling glued to the drywall. The paneling was ripped off, some terrible plaster job was done (without much sanding), then painted. I'd like to repair and smooth all of these problem areas. I just don't know the best way. Should I try and scrape them off, sand, cut...
  3. Drywall & Plaster
    Good morning, I'm a first-time homeowner who's never done any DIY projects or knows much about these kinds of issues, so please excuse my ignorance in advance. I have a horizontal crack in the ceiling (I think it's drywall) that runs the width of my master bathroom (the crack is probably 6...

    Hi everyone, so I have these drywall cracks in my house. They've appeared slowly over the past two/three years, but haven't gotten worse in at least 6 months as far as I can tell.

The house is on a crawl space, was built pre drywall screw, we live next to a train track and the home was built on a more than moderate incline. Foundation settling is an issue along with the fact that all the drywall is fastened...

I started peeling off the paint in a dented area, at first it was coming off very easily where they mudded around the window. However once i reached the drywall paper surface...

    I recently had a friend approached by a condo unit below them. They showed them a stain that appeared to be completely dry. So I have two questions: 1. How long does drywall retain water after water damage has produced a significant stain? 2. Is their any scientific tests (i.e. via...
  9. Drywall & Plaster
    Hello all, I hope you can help me with my dilemma. I live in a timber frame house that is 10 years old. The frame has shifted and shrunk in spots, a common phenomenon. As a result, the drywall on an interior partition wall has been compressed where it meets a ceiling beam. The paper face of the...
