Drywall Repair in Cedar Rapids, IA

Do you live in Cedar Rapids and have small drywall repair issues that don't require professionals to repairs? Live happens, and often we find small dings, holes and scuffs on our walls. First, you’ll need the proper tools in order to complete the project.

1. Spackle – Paste that will fill the hole. Try not to buy too much because it will dry out and harden over time if you try and save it.
2. Putty Knife – These can range in size from 1 inch to 12 inches. You will want to pick a size that is wider than the hole you need to fill. But not too much wider.
3. Sandpaper – If it is a larger hole it will need to be sanded done in order for there to be a smooth finish.

Now it’s time to fill the hole(s).

1. Nail holes aka the most common type of destruction caused by holiday décor. Luckily, they can be easily filled. Just place the spackle on the knife and drag it across until it is smooth.
2. Larger holes can be harder to fill and will require you sanding down the area after you are done filling them.
3. If the hole is very large invest in a wall repair patch. These only cost a few dollars and are sold at hardware stores. Apply it to the hole and then fill it just as you would the smaller holes. Again, finish by sanding the area down.

If you need our help, don't hesitate to call or if you have a larger drywall repair project, schedule a free estimate today!

Benefits of Repairing Drywall

For many homeowners, the main benefit of repairing drywall is simply cosmetic. Damaged drywall tends to be extremely noticeable and ruins the overall appearance of a wall. While some would prefer to simply cover the damage with a wall hanging or piece of furniture, there are other important benefits to taking the time to repair it instead.

For one, 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

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.

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-priming the wall entirely.
