Default Bulging drywall ceiling corner

Hello,

I have a two year home. A few weeks ago I noticed 2 straight lines bulging from corner of the ceiling. Please see attached image. Any idea what it is, and how to repair it or how much would it cost to repair it?

Your help is much appreciated,

Thank you

Interesting. My thought is that there is an inside corner bead starting to let go.
Or maybe a filler strip seam ?

The repair isn't difficult. The problem will be matching the texture. Try calling the builder and see if they can help resolve the issue. Definitely worth a call.

Default Thank you

Thank you very much for the reply. I cant figure out what it is either. I am wondering whether it has been there all along, but I never noticed. Still have the one year warranty.

Thanks again guys,

Happy new year !!!!

Do you have attic space above that ceiling?

There should be, but very limited. I never climbed up there.

Have you noticed any squeaks in the floor lately?

No squeaking and no noise, hopefully the builder will fix it, 1 year Tarion is still not expired.

Be sure to tell us what he says and how he fixes it, if he does.

You should definitely get familiar with your whole house. Take a visit to the attic.
