Warping of the Walls: Causes and Preventions

Warping happens when the sheetrock beneath your walls begins to stretch and curve by absorbing too much moisture. High humidity, poor drainage, or insufficient waterproofing could all be contributing factors to this issue. Its became a common scenario nowadays. It could be a sign of a more serious problem, including foundation failure.

What Causes The Wall to Appear Warped?

If water gets on the wall and keeps it wet all the time, it absorbs moisture and becomes warped. Some of the causes of the wall being warped due to water are given below:

  • Natural disaster: Extreme storms create large amounts of rain and flash flooding quickly. As a result, there could be clogging or other infrastructure damage and strain on the drains.
  • Faulty appliances: Your home's water-using appliances, such as the washer and dishwasher, could break down due to aging or careless handling.
  • Inadequate construction: Improper construction also leads to warped walls. Your interior paneling type can cause warped walls.
  • Sewage or Plumbing issues: These occur as a result of aging, corrosion, excessive water pressure, or freezing. They can also be brought on by clogs that create floods of clean water or sewage. These also cause warped walls.
  • Humidity: The wall could also be warped because of high humidity. Damp walls absorb airborne moisture and cause warping.

  • Install a moisture meter to monitor the moister timely.
  • Make sure that the walls are always dry and there is no musty atmosphere at your place.
