Forum Title: Effect of unheated house on finished drywall
Hey Guys! Hope everyone is having an awesome Friday! So, would like some opinions here; I have a homeowner who wants to kill the water, winterize the house and not heat it over the winter here in Chicago. Gas is outrageously expensive in the Chi. The drywall is long finished and cured, and has two coats of paint, again long since cured/dried. The work was done over the summer. The property has all its windows and doors, so no direct drafts or cold air coming in besides what leaks in through small cracks. How bad do you think it would be? I have my doubts based on expansion/contraction of studs, etc, but I'm a mere GC so wanted to see if I could get some pros to weigh in on opinions. Am I worrying for nothing, or are my concerns valid about this potentially ruining the drywall in the house? I'm thinking any gas savings is going to be spent on springtime drywall repair. You guys live this stuff everyday - would appreciate any input you professionals might care to share with me. Have a great weekend!
