Damp Drywall Around a Tub

One of the most problematic areas in a bathroom is the area of drywall around that bathtub or shower because it has the potential to cause major problems in the future if not dealt with straightaway. Whether you have lived in the same house for years or have just moved into a new place, the area around the bath should definitely be checked regularly to ensure that you catch any problems that crop up in the early stages.
