I was at a home today build in 1999, the corner in one of the bedrooms, has loose tape, which is wavey and the ceiling texture is loose around the edge of the room in a few places. There is no discoloration in the ceiling texture and the corner has been painted. The buyers brother was insistant that it was leak from the outside of the home that cause it. I disagreed with him, but after leaving the home I’m not quite sure.
In all the ceilings I’ve seen where there texture has gotten moist or wet it has always dicolored. And I’ve painted corners and have had them come apart due to the moisture from the paint loosening the tape.
The home has a layer of poly under the sheetrock, and I found signs of a house rap being in place on the exterior of the home, attic area was dry and showed no signs of a moisture problem. This bedroom was directly below the attic, home has good eaves.
Anyway any comments would be great.
