Help, my drywall is buldging at the seams. I thought it was a water leak but it wasnt moist. Husband tried to fix it but, it looks worse. He told me that the only way is to replace it with an entire new drywall. My house is less than 2 years old. I think that theres an easier way...Any advice? And how did this happen?

Hello,
The pictures are a little far away for me to really make out the detail. If the drywall is cracking at the seams or bulging this can be for a few reasons. The first being since your home is only two years old more than likely it caused by your home settling.You might also notice some screw pops little round dots. If this occurs just take a drill and tighten them up and mud over.
This happens way more than you care to imagine in new homes.From the looks of the picture it looks like it is only on the one seam. If this is the case you have a few options.
Option 1 You can take additional drywall screws and drive the sheet up snug. Do not drive screws so they break through drywall paper. Just deep enough so that they can be concealed by a coat of mud. Throw some mesh tape and new compound on it giving you a smooth surface repaint and hope for the best.You can always place a textured finish on your ceiling to hide the imperfections once it is fixed.Which I actually always recommend for any ceiling patch job. Since it will be a bit hard to make it blend once a paint coat in already in place.
Option 2 is pull the tape on the seam and place additional screws and re mud and tape seam and paint.
Option 3 drop the two problem sheets install new sheets. This would allow you to check for water damage. You will then install sheets using drywall adhesive and placing extra screws at seams to try and eliminate further cracking. Then mud and tape and repaint.
These are a few options though they are a little time consuming and a little expensive. Much less so than demo and all new drywall. If you do end up re installing drywall make sure adhesive is used as well 6 screws per seam.
I hope this helps if you have more detailed questions please feel free to ask.
