When you own a home, it’s important to be aware of all the problems that can occur over time. One major problem that can happen a lot relates to your drywall. Whether your home is newly built or pretty old, drywall cracks can easily form and create cosmetic and structural problems in your home. Smaller cracks usually aren’t as dangerous, but should still be checked out by a professional. These kinds of cracks usually appear exactly where the wall is weak, often above doors and windows.

What Causes Drywall Cracks?
Drywall cracks are often caused by foundation settlement. Settlement occurs when there are fluctuating moisture levels around the home, when there’s soil movement around and underneath the home, and when you have a shallow foundation. As stated before, small cracks are usually nothing to worry about yet, it’s when the cracks become bigger than 1/8 of an inch that you should contact a professional.
