How does a drywall become bent? My powder room drywall is bent. The vanity
counter (some kind of corian looking hard surface) that is once attached to
the entire length of this drywall is also bent in the opposite direction.
Basically, the drywall is bent inward, and the vanity counter is bent
outward; creating a gap between the wall and the counter. The bend is more
severe on the drywall as oppose to the counter. There is also a crack in
the sink (attached to the vanity). I had a feeling that someone tried to
jam the vanity counter (that was cut too long) into the wall. I'm not sure
if this make sense, but that would explain the crack in the sink.
Moisture. In recent construction a stud bowing as it cured might pull or
push the wallboard in the direction of the bow. Settling or cracking of a
slab under the floor might also cause the problem.
