This is the only crack on the second floor ceiling in a house built in 2007. It’s on an exterior wall. Any ideas on what would cause this type of crack and the best way to add it into the report
Cracks at panel seams and transitions (change of direction) are extremely common.
Even a subtle movement will cause cracking at a weak joint.
Truss movement at vaulted/flat ceiling transition. Common, but shouldn’t normally be such severe cracking. May have issue with the two different trusses at the transition point.
Lack of insulation, condensation will cause the tape joint to separate.
2 story house??? We’re you able to get up in the attic area and see what was going on above that? From pics it seems small and localized it looks cosmetic.
All of the above, aaand, you can tell the sheetrock on the ceiling abuts the sheetrock on the wall. Improper installation. Ceiling sheetrock edges should be over the sheetrock on the wall so the edges of the ceiling are supported.
No. Unfortunately it was in a spot that was inaccessible.
Observed minor crack at ceiling transition.
A little bit of this,
Shrinkage crack. Move on. Lol
