Common Drywall Problems
Before looking to repaint the interior of your home, it’s best to fix any existing drywall damaged for a smooth painting application and finish. 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:
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.
Removing anything attached to the wall, whether it be tile, wallpaper, or even objects like mirrors, can lead to pieces of drywall coming off.
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.
Careless furniture handling can lead to pencil-like marks at best and holes in the drywall at worst.
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.
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.
Common Questions About Drywall Repair Projects
How do you repair drywall?
Like most drywall and plaster, small dents, holes, and marks can be covered up with spackle and paint. After the spackle is applied and dried, it’s important to sand the area for a smooth surface. Once this process has been completed, paint can be applied to complete the uniform look that you want your wall to look like.

How can I tell if my drywall should be repaired?
Most of the time there will be visual evidence that your drywall is damaged. Repairs and replacements are generally only needed if some damage has been done to the wall. Impact damage, water damage, mold, and scrapes are the most common types of drywall damage. If you see any of these signs, repairs are probably needed to restore the look of your wall.
How do you fix cracks in drywall?
Cracks in drywall are usually repaired using drywall tape and joint compound. Once the compound dries the surface is smoothed over for an even finish.
