Defect in the application of drywall causing cracks to appear in the joints between the panels. Center cracks, running along the center of the joint, occur from building settlement (which would not be an application defect) or applying layers of joint compound too thickly. The cracks that form along the edges of a joint occur when joint compound is applied too thickly or when the compound dries too quickly. The drying process can be slowed down by rolling a wet roller along the joints to keep it moist. For repair, the tape and compound must be removed and replaced.
Defect in the application of drywall, which causes an indentation in the joint between the panels and is caused by either too much sanding of the joint or two little or too thin compound was used. Sanding and application of additional joint compound is required to repair this flaw.
The dimensions and configuration of a weld joint.
Drywall defect caused by moisture trapped in the joint prior to sealing or from the use of poor quality paint or painting when humid, which turns the joint color darker or lighter than the balance of the wall.
Joint efficiency factor
Measure of the strength of a weld joint as compared to the base metal strength by using numbers one or less. A factor of one indicates that the weld and the base metal are equal in strength. Less than one indicates that the strength of the weld is lesser than the base metal.
Expansion joints in concrete structures are filled with plastic material or preformed cork.
Two or more people sharing the responsibility of fulfilling the terms of a debt.
More than one maker on a note where if one or more of the makers default on the note, all of the makers are sued jointly, rather than just one or all, to make restitution.
Ownership of real estate with two or more individuals having equal ownership with, upon the death of one owner, the property is transferred to the survivor.
Depth of the penetration of the weld metal as measured from the surface of the base metal.
