Description

Title:Ceiling-Floor Partition Separation: What Is It and Why Is It Occurring?
Author(s):Percival, Donald H.
Subject(s):Buildings
Construction
Architecture
Abstract:This publication is intended to increase the understanding of cracking or separation of finish materials occasionally found in light-frame wood construction. In many cases, the problem is caused by shrinking or swelling of the wood framing members due to changes in moisture content. Although unsightly, these cracks and separations are basically cosmetic and pose no structural problems. It is important to be able to differentiate between movement caused by the instability of wood and that caused by foundation movement or structural failure, which can cause major problems.
