studs and drywall screws showing through paint

Posted by Don Oliver on June 12th, 2000 06:39 PM

Our house is only 4 years old, has an open beam
ceiling. We are starting to see the shadows of the wall
and ceiling studs and the drywall screws through the
paint. Is this mold or mildew? Are the drywall screws
rusting? We have had problems with the roof vent and
blowing snow getting into the opening. The ridge cap
was removed and a foam strip (like weather stripping)
was used to seal the air gap but still allow airflow.
Do we need to add more ventilation in the roof or is it
an inside moisture problem. I have checked the bathroom
vents and ductwork they are sealed and vent outside.
The house is weather tight, could wall vents help?

at a loss
