We just bought a brand new home in April and I believe that we have a problem with our walls. We have tried everything from anchors to toggle bolts to put small shelves and our curtains up. All ended up eventually tearing down through the drywall, even with a 5 lb shelf! and light rods with light silk dupioni curtains! Every curtain rod fell in our house so I had to use curtain clips so that I could extend the curtains out just a few inches past the window itself because we were forced to use the studs surrounding the windows. This is not my first home and it's not the first time that I've ever hung curtains or shelves. The walls seem so thin and brittle that I'm terrified to hang my 50+ lb mirrors that I have successfully hung for years. I have never encountered the problems that I am having before. Just this morning while my son took a shower, some water splashed onto the bathroom wall and the paint slid right off in a huge strip. Even places hit by a single drop immediately bubbled up from the drywall. The paint for the entire home was guaranteed to be water resistant, scrubbable paint and yet this happened from one splashback of water. I don't know if the two things are related but I can't help but feel that they skimped on something when they put our walls up. Is there something wrong with our walls? Thank you in advance.
