Common Drywall Problems in Naperville
It’s common to need to make repairs to drywall during interior painting projects. The most common issues are nail holes, dents, water damage, and nail pops. If you notice any of these kinds of problems on the interior walls of your home, our team can help with professional repairs and painting.
Holes in Drywall
Usually caused by an accidental forceful impact. Commonly from moving furniture or falling into a wall. Holes can vary in size, the approach to fixing this will vary depending on the size.
Water Damaged Drywall
Water damage is common and has a variety of causes, from an overflowing bathtub to plumbing problems, to a roof leak - we have seen our fair share and are prepared to remove and replace water damaged drywall.
Nail Pops in Drywall
Nail pops are common in new construction. As new houses settle there will be nail pops that happen. It can happen in older homes to with shifting or settling structures. We can repair the damage when this happens.
Removing anything attached to the wall, whether it be tile, wallpaper, or even objects like mirrors, can lead to pieces of drywall coming off.
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.
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-repriming the wall entirely.
