Sheetrock has new crack all of a sudden.
An inexpensive, wood-sided house built in 1974, in bedroom corner next to closet (middle of outside wall) all of a sudden has a small but noticeable crack with gap all the way from ceiling to floor. After 27 years here, about 6 months ago my husband installed french drain along that outside foundation because yard slopes downhill towards the house...used to pool at foot of deck-style stoop but that pretty much stopped. Also recently installed gutter guards. Yikes, help! Just patch and watch, or what?
