6 Common Drywall Problems
Drywall damage is a common problems for many homeowners and many homes use this material to form walls, ceilings, eaves, and arches. Drywall is also fire retardant and compared to wood, plaster or other materials, is light and inexpensive. As a result, drywall has become a popular material used in homes across the nation. However, with drywall comes with problems and may need repairs or replacing.
Here are our top 5 Common Drywall Repairs:
Holes can be caused by a number of things, like doors swinging too hard into walls. 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.
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.
4Marks and Scuffs
Furniture handling or people bumping into the walls can lead to pencil-like marks at best and holes in the drywall at worst.
This happens most often when a nail is not securely attached to a joint or stud and pops through the drywall.
Cracks in drywall can cause further complex damage to an entire foundation and usually form on ceilings where traces of moisture have exposed the area.
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® of Denton 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.
