We had to get a new well dug a couple of years after we built our house & not long after we developed a crack on a wall in the basement & 2 rooms on the main floor have cracks in the corners. The ceiling is textured & I have heard from some that the best way to repair is to clean the crack & then apply cauke & others say to clean, tape & apply joint compound. I think that I can do the texture, it's just a pull down effect.I only want to do this once so I could really use some advise. Thanks
