Common Drywall Services
Drywall damage is a common problem for many homeowners and one that can be tricky to fix at home. It is a meticulous repair that requires time and attention to detail. If not properly taken care of, it can result in an uneven and unappealing appearance or, worse, structural damage to your walls. There are many factors that can damage drywall, leaving behind holes, cracks, dents and damp patches of all sizes.
Holes are usually caused by accidental forceful impact, like a door being slammed open or someone falling into the wall. Depending on what made the impact, you could be looking at anything from a small puncture to a worrying crater.
Removing anything attached to the wall, whether it be tile, wallpaper, or even objects like mirrors, can lead to pieces of drywall coming off.
Water Damage & Moisture
Usually caused by leaking pipes, water damage weakens the structural integrity of the drywall and can even be a health hazard. Even if there are no visible water patches, moisture in the walls or ceilings can lead to other problems like cracks and loosened joint tape.
This happens most often when a nail is not securely attached to a joint or stud and pops through the drywall.
Dented Corner Bead
The corner bead is a piece of metal used to join two sheets of drywall at a corner. It can become dented with impact or regular wear and tear.
Careless furniture handling can lead to pencil-like marks at best and holes in the drywall at worst.
Priming Drywall for Paint
Priming drywall after a repair is an extremely important step which should never be overlooked. Due to the natural texture of drywall, painting directly over the skim coat will not leave a fully even surface. Drywall priming involves sanding down, wiping, cleaning, and finally applying a drywall primer/sealer. This sticks to the drywall to create a perfectly smooth surface for painting as well as prevents the paint from being absorbed into the drywall.
