Common Sheetrock Crack Over a Door

Digital ImageHouses in Houston shift on their foundations, and when they do, diagonal cracks like this over doors and windows are pretty common.

What I forgot to do was take a picture after I had “taped and floated” the crack, to bridge it and even out the surface.

The new wallpaper is stretchy vinyl, on a non-woven substrate backing, which should expand and contract a little. That’s good, because it means the wallpaper shouldn’t tear if the crack in the wall should open up again.
