Yes, taped all the seams with paper tape.

That was my thought as well.

The patio door in question is solid wood covered with vinyl clad. It's a finished patio door from Andersen.
As to the sheetrock , if the framing was installed and quickly sheetrocked , the moisture levels in the structure hadnt reached an equilibrium before it was covered up.
I kept the original framing, but some of the studs weren't exactly straight or even. I had some trouble spots fitting the sheet rock on smooth. Too much tightening and the sheet rock cracked.
Lastly, if you are noticing cracks above doors and windows, it is likely due to improper installation. ( lack of adhesive, poor joint location) Most likely it is due to the drastic change of humidity , so it will stop after a time and can be repaired.
The only cracks I see are along the sheet rocks seams. The headers above the window and doors are fine.
Thanks for all the advice. I figured I would go through the season and make the repairs in the spring. That way it would have all summer to acclimate. The cracks as of now aren't bad at all. As far as the patio door goes, Andersen is replacing the warped panel under their warranty.
