Drywall Repair Sudbury, ON
It is not uncommon for homeowners to require drywall in their homes to be repaired. While drywall is a strong material, it can become damaged by water, impact, or wear and tear. For example, moisture within walls may degrade the quality of your drywall overtime. Additionally, it is possible that children playing could accidentally damage your walls.
While you can do some small repairs yourself, it is generally best to hire a professional for any major repair work. There are several reasons why you should hire a professional to fix your drywall:
While repairing drywall may not be the most exciting home improvement project, it is essential to maintaining the structural integrity of your walls and/or ceilings. Drywall repair is the process of repairing holes or cracks in your drywall. Drywall is a type of wall material that is made from plaster and gypsum. It is used to finish the interior walls of homes and businesses.
Depending on how big the damaged area is, fixing and patching drywall may require different actions. For small holes that may be a result of a popped nail or screw, you may be able to fix it yourself. You can patch over the hole by doing the following. Firstly, apply spackle over the hole using a putty knife or with your finger. Let the spackle dry then sand the area to smoothen it. Wait about 30 minutes before sanding. Once this is done paint over the surface to match your wall or ceiling.
If you have a large hole, you will want to use a drywall patch. To do this, cut a new piece of drywall that is slightly bigger than the hole using a utility knife. Then screw the piece of drywall into the wall studs around the hole. Afterwards, apply joint tape to cover the and then apply spackle or drywall mud over the area. Typically for a larger hole in drywall it is better to apply joint compound (also known as drywall mud). Sand the area once it is dry and then paint over the surface. We recommend doing prime and paint.
