2 questions re: drywall:
1. there is a section of one of our rooms where we recently replaced the
drywall due to cracking. I noticed recently that there are cracks appearing
along the lines of the joints. No one has pushed against this wall so I am
assuming that there is moisture behind the wall which has caused the mud to
loosen and crack.
If I want to re-tape/mud the joints, should I use paper or mesh tape? Also,
I am thinking that if I put a few support screws into studs near the joints,
it will give added support.
2. The wall behind my bed has cracks (again along joint lines) directly
behind where my wife and I rest our heads. Obviously, the weight of our
melons :) is causing this. Like above, if I screw into some studs near the
joints, will this give me added support?
