I have an uneven wall in my home. You can see on the pic how the base of the wall is not straight. Handy man from the builder came in, cut a little piece from the base of the dry wall at the bottom that made it bulge and patched everything back. It is still uneven. How can I fix this? Tarion will not cover something like that.
This bulge can be a few things. If your in a Condo. This could be simply a uneven concrete
wall that was never repaired at time of construction. If it's a wood or metal framed wall it is where a joint is in the wall and unfortunately was poorly installed at the time. It could also be a plumbing stack in the wall that is just a little to tight for the space. If you go to a specialty supplier
of acoustic ceiling tile and drywall ,they will have what you require.( NOT HomeDepot or Rona ) A sheet of 1/4"
drywall, providing this bulge is 1/4" or less. Cut out about a 2' x 2' section where the bulge is and install this piece . After you tape the joints it you will need many coats of compound probably at least 6 to build up to the existing wall thickness. Do not try to do this in 2 or three coats. More thin coats the better strength you will have.
