Cracks in the walls

When we see cracks in the wall we should be concerned.  Cracks typically corm due to the house settling or shifting from weight.  If your second floor has a lot of extra weight on it, then it could cause stress and strain on the overall structure.  To repair these cracks, you will need to address the underlying problem and not just the superficial cracks.  If you don’t these cracks will eventually reappear.

Joint tape

This could be a DIY project that you could handle since typically it is due to moisture or other conditions that cause the glue on the tape come lose.  If you have a problem with joint tape coming lose you will need to replace the entire piece so that it matches up with the rest of the wall, will need to re-mud the walls to ensure that they are smooth, sand and paint.  Even though the task isn’t that difficult, it is time and labor intensive.  Typically, a project you should otherwise contract out.

Tile removal

Tile is typically used as a backsplash element on the walls.  When we attach tile to the walls we use a strong glue that bonds the tile to the wall.  When we remove this tile the drywall behind it will be ruined.  The glue that we use to attach to the wall will be too difficult to remove and labor intensive as well.  This is why we just go in and replace the drywall and then either paint or install new tile.
