Speaking of cracks I just looked at a house built 15 years ago that started showing cracks in the mill pack wainscoting about three years ago. It's one of those plant mdf 1x3's over drywall to make it look like a paneled wall. The cracks are mainly showing in the paint on the drywall. Didn't see Any on the raised mdf trim. I am pretty sure the can I found in the garage is the trim paint. Do you think the precat finish just became too brittle over time? I have not used this finish before.

I've ran into that a few times. Always lacquer on drywall. Lacquer=cracker, on drywall IMO.

Thanks buddy. I'll have to let him know we can sand, spackle prime and paint but no warranty it won't return.
Unless maybe we use a tie coat of peel bond but that seems kinda weird. Might work. Thoughts?

So there's this. Worked pretty good and I didn't need to get a building permit to repair it

I wonder what the MC of the framing was when they hung the GWB?

We only worked with one builder who monitored RH and the MC of the wood once the building was dried in.

Unfortunately, that was the only thing about which he was conscientious.

I don't know, but this wall is all concrete foundation. I'm not interested in repainting this wall or the possible mess the drywaller, if coming back to repair will make on my trim.

Sure I can probably charge extra, but I was scheduled to be finished tomorrow and I'm not enthusiastic about staying longer.

Take a page from some of the modular-home manufacturers. Tell them not to paint it for a year, then come back, fix the cracks, and paint.

Too late. They called the drywaller up. I guess he already cut it out, right above my freshly painted base...

So now I won't be done tomorrow. Such a pita.

Well, that's a pain.

Painters really are the low men on the totem pole. Clearly, somebody along the way screwed up, but the painters are the last guys, so they end up having to fix it...or wait for somebody else to fix it...before they can finish.

When my customer called to tell me he got the drywaller to come by, he said he started blaming him that it was too cold in the basement and was defensive about it.

My customer's a bit po'd about his attitude.

I'm going to swing by to see how much of a mess he's making. I'm concerned that he's going to be pretty careless since he's pissed off...
