How do I troubleshoot problems with drywall?


Answer by  dubby (29)

That depends on what the problem is. If you need to look inside the wall, use a drywall saw to carefully cut a square piece out of the wall. You can then see whatever the problem is on the inside, and then replace the piece you removed.

Well, depends on your issue- buckling can be due to the sheets being butted too tight, or can be a moisture issue. Sagging- your nails are too far apart.
