Sealing Drywall Cracks and Stains
Common Drywall Problems
Before you are looking to repaint the interior of your home, it’s best to fix any drywall damage for a smooth painting application and finish. Our CertaPro Painters® of Austin, TX painting experts have years of experience in drywall repair, making it easy for them to deliver impeccable results quickly and efficiently. There are many factors that can damage drywall, leaving behind holes, cracks, dents, and damp patches of all sizes. Some of the most common types of damaged drywall include:
It happens often. When someone knocks into the wall, it can create a dent. Usually, the dents can’t be repaired, but the panels need to be replaced. This is the only way to make the paint job look flawless.
Careless furniture handling can lead to pencil-like marks at best and holes in the drywall at worst.
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.
If there are cracks in the drywall, it can either be plastered over so they are not visible or the entire drywall panel should be replaced.
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.
Benefits of Drywall Repair
For many homeowners, drywall is an essential construction material that encompasses the interior of their homes. Many people use drywall because it offers several benefits, such as being fire-resistant and energy efficient. Drywall can tolerate many forms of wear and tear inside your home, but when damages happen it can become an eyesore and requires repair. While some would prefer to simply cover the damage with a piece of furniture or a wall-hanging object, drywall repair is the truest form to correct the damage that occurred.
Certain forms of damage like cracks and damp patches can lead to structural issues that can affect the integrity of your home. However, even smaller holes and dents will have to be repaired someday if you ever intend to sell your house or move your furniture. Leaving the repair for later is almost guaranteed to increase the damage over time, meaning you may end up paying more down the line.
Priming Drywall for Paint
It’s important after drywall has been replaced or repaired, especially before painting, to prime the drywall to ensure that the paint remains on the walls and isn’t affected by temperature changes in the room or environment. 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.
Our CertaPro Painters® drywall repair services will always include all these necessary steps for a perfect finish. Of course, the drywall priming process will vary depending on the size of the repair. If we are only repairing a small hole, the primer will be applied directly onto the spackle or drywall compound with a paintbrush or roller. Larger repairs and replacements will usually mean re-repriming the wall entirely.
