We are building a new house. We recently had all of the drywall done. We chose the highest bid from the company that we were told were very good. We did this because we wanted a good job and were willing to pay for it. We chose smooth finish thru out for walls and ceilings. Now that we have started painting we are noticing that most all of the inside corners have sunk back and also many places along the wall/ceiling lines have done the same thing. It looks like they did not put enough product in or sanded too much out. So when you are painting, you can't do a straight line. It looks really bad, the shadows that the sunken areas have created in the corners look terrible, looks like you missed them when you painted. The whole job was supposed to be smooth finish and primed. The job is pretty smooth in places but rough in others and it seems they may have sanded thru the primer because on the rough areas no matter how much paint you put on them, they still look different from the smooth areas. We have talked to the drywall guys and they give us the impression that this is OK and are seeming reluctant to fix these latest problems. They have already fixed several cracks that have occurred already. Our last house was 154 years old and all of the real original plaster is so much better, straighter and more level than this new drywall. My question is: Are we being too picky? Is this what new drywall is supposed to look like? If not, what can we do or who can we call to come and look at this objectively and advise us where to go from here?
