First a little background. I have been doing general remodeling for a number of years and would consider myself and intermedieate level drywaller but by no means an expert.
So I put up a new ceiling for a client and have two issues.
1. On a small section of a bevel joint I have a hairline crack about 1 1/2′ long.
2. On the butt edge I have a “bubble” line for about 4 or 5 feet. This was not there before I primed and painted.
What I’ve used. 1/2 inch drywall, bevel seems perpincular to ceiling joists, mesh tape, ( I usually use paper but the Holmes on Homes guy said he liked mesh so I decided to give it a whirl), Lightweight all purpose joint compound. 4 progressive coats of mud.
This is a single story house and there has been no work in the attic.
In my exerience with drywall I know that if the drywall has gaps at the seams the tape will bubble up but these seams are nice and tight. Also, I put a light across the joint before I primed and it looked sweet.
I am sort of a perfectionist and it is driving me crazy having these two issues.
Any help would be appreciated.
