Drywall Repair & Finishing
Drywall is a common interior building material for most modern homes built these days. It’s sturdy and fire-resistant, making it a perfect building material for most homes. However, like most things, nothing is perfect, and drywall is not immune to damage from external sources. Maybe you were in the process of moving and you dinged your wall while moving furniture. A pipe could have busted, resorting to an emergency call from your plumber, or your home needs electrical repairs done. Either way, sometimes contractors tend to leave a series of holes behind after these repairs are fixed.
From small punch-through holes to hanging new drywall panels, cutting, attaching, and applying a final skim coating and sanding, CertaPro Painters® of Bethesda and Chevy Chase, MD is your one-stop shop for all your drywall repair needs. Our team has built a professional reputation by delivering an extraordinary customer service experience. Schedule today for a free estimate for your drywall repair needs.
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® house 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.
