Is it Time for Drywall Renovation?
Have you a taken a good look around your home and noticed all the damages and nail holes that could be as big as a few inches in diameter? There are many factors that can contribute to drywall damage such as general water migration or leaks and structural settling among to name a few. Overlooking or neglecting these problems can lead can over time turn into a really big problem with a big repair bill.
Water damage to drywall is generally the result of roofing and plumbing leaks, and common signs of this type of damage are cracks, bulging, discoloration and sagging. It is possible for this type of damage to appear further away from the leak since it tends to run and drip along interior pipes, joists and substrate framing. This is why you need to look for signs of damage on the walls as well as the ceilings. If you notice any damages or any other imperfections in your drywall, it is important that you call a drywall renovation professional immediately to inspect the problem and give you an estimation of repair costs. The sooner this is done, the chances of lowering your damage repair cost can be significant.
The renovation process is much easier if the damage is found soon and the repairs done as soon as possible. Small repairs can be limited to the drywall and can even be done by yourself if you are handy. Some ready mixed spackling compound with a putty knife to the affected area and away you go. Don’t forget to tape any seems that have come away with either paper or fiberglass mesh tape before your do any filling.
In some instances, drywall panels may already be crumbling due to moisture accumulation and extreme humidity, which will require tools such as drywall handsaws or jigsaws to repair the affected area. If any mildew or mould appears during this stage or when the material is removed, you will need new drywall installation and all other nearby surfaces will have to be cleaned thoroughly. It is important to let the drywall dry completely before starting the repair process. Fans and or dehumidifiers can be used to increase airflow to the area, and you need to make sure that there is no occurrence of moisture, and the leak has been completely taken care of. Make sure that your repair area gets a lot of ventilation if you do not have a dehumidifier because the moisture will need to escape for the compounds to dry effectively.
There are several options for patching holes. A patch is simply a piece of drywall that is cut and blended to suit your existing wall, and once applied, the damage will be unnoticeable. You can either choose regular drywall for this process or expert recommended water resistant drywall.
A plywood backer is needed if the hole is fairly large, and provides support for the patch. With the help of nails or screws, your drywall renovation contractor will fasten the drywall patch into the hole. The edges of this new piece of drywall will be taped using either fiberglass or paper drywall tape, and eventually covered with mud.
It takes a good 24 hours for the mud to cure, after which the joints are sanded down to ensure smoothness and then painted. This step is the most critical application of the entire drywall renovation process because any imperfections in the joints or the patch will still be noticeable even after the paint has been applied. This is why it is recommended that you do not attempt to fix drywall damages yourself, but rather seek help from professional drywall renovation contractors in Surrey BC.
