Default How to fix reoccurring crack in sheetrock

This crack has plagued me for 30+ years! I've repaired it several times and it keeps coming back! I finally gave up and just decided to live with it.......But I could always hear it, secretly laughing at me.

Is that a bad picture? It looks bad on this end.

Case the door and then some fancy panel up to the ceiling...the house can move all it wants then.

High expansion caulking? Top gun 400 should do it.

There you go, thinking outside the box, you'll never have to see that crack again!

Looks good!

That looks really sharp. What kind of wood/stain did you use?

The wood is Cedar pickets. I cut off the dog ears, ripped it down to 5" wide and used a Shou Sugi Ban burn technique then brushed the char off. A few of them have a light red stain and a few have a light green stain. I then applied a satin polyurethane finish.

This looks great! Question though: What happened to the smaller mount you had on the midline? I really liked the way that looked. And aren’t there a couple of pieces of wall art missing? Please don’t go all “minimalist” on us now!

Moved it here. The manager decided to not clutter the wall.

I do the same thing with check-engine lights, just put some black tape over them.
