After priming a new ceiling, 2 seams cracked. The drywall was screwed to firring spaced 1 foot on center. Can these cracks be fixed or do I have more serious problems.

You CAN use a sillicone to fill the cracks, it is not the proper fix but it is cheep and will not recrack, the sillicone will streach instead of recrack. One thing you want to make sure is that you use a paintable sillicone other wise paint will not stick to it! The other option is to tear the tape and mud down and restart. The cracking probly came from drying to fast, I would not think that there is a larger problem!

there is a ceiling paint that can be purchased at www.paintonce.com that will bridge cracks 1/8th of an inch. the coating will also streach 160% and insulates at r-24.
