Drywall repairs are one post-construction challenge, similar to a basement remodel, that really needs to be dealt with as soon as possible after the damage occurs. Drywall by nature is fire resistant and somewhat water resistant, if it does not have raw edges and therefore open gypsum to attract moisture. Drywall tends to break down around a damaged area, and can lead to more serious concerns if moisture intrudes, the holes are left unchecked and grow in size, or allows access by insects and vermin to interior of walls, ceilings, and crawl spaces.
For All Repairs to Drywall Jacksonville FL
It is easy to unintentionally damage your drywall. Drywall, while tough, is also brittle over the expanse. Between the studs in your wall or trusses in your ceiling drywall stretches across open areas, making it vulnerable to holes when sudden and significant force is applied. Patching those holes takes skill to make sure the drywall repair is not visible, and blends in with the level and finish of the surrounding area. When our teams go to repair damage to the wallboard, we take the supplies we need to either mesh and spackle, cut and fit in, or whatever else may be needed to patch the area. Our prep will make sure seams are butted up and sealed, edges are smooth and tapered into the mud, and the drywall compound looks like it has always been there, along with the rest of the wall.
Repairs to drywall can get especially difficult if they are needed to a ceiling. It is a lot more challenging to patch gypsum board overhead due to anchor points not always being close to the needed repair. Ceilings often have experienced water damage due to storms, burst pipes, dripping air conditioning lines, and other things. It is important for your drywall to be completely dry so its structural integrity is not compromised by moisture, so mold and mildew do not develop, or worse, your attic insulation gets wet and turns black. Our trained drywall experts know to check for moisture, and determine the source of damage on all drywall ceiling repairs to make certain your family and home are safe from potentially dangerous mold growth. Dampness in an attic can also leach into your sheetrock ceiling and cause it to swell, break down, and eventually collapse.

Correctly repairing drywall usually takes more than throwing some spackle onto a spot and smoothing it over with a putty knife. Drywall repairs by nature are challenging to not only look good but to actually repair a spot so more problems do not develop. Sheetrock and fiberglass mess needs to be applied securely to the surrounding area and to study if possible. The edges need to be blended in. Joints and seams need to be taped, correctly spackled, and dried between each application so the spackle adheres and does not crack. Using high-quality spackling mud makes a difference, both for long-term durability and how your repair looks. Cheap products do not produce quality repairs or a good-looking, well-prepared surface ready to accept paint, wallpaper, or plaster. Sanding needs to be done generating as little dust and debris as possible in order to keep your home or business clean as possible. Finally, all the repairs and surrounding areas need to be wiped down to remove any dust, because dust will cause primer, the next applied layer, to fail. We want to leave your job site clean, ready for the next step, and looking a lot better than when we arrived.
