Even if control joints do not appear to be specified they are often ast by reference specification. One component of gypsum board construction often overlooked by architects and contractors is the control joint.
Gypsum board assembly shall conform to acoustical tests of the specification where sound control is required. All materials shall be kept dry. Masonry or concrete walls shall be dry, free of dust, oil, or form release agents, protrusions or voids, or foreign matter that inhibit bond for adhesively applied gypsum board.
