Your home is the one place in this world where you are in complete control to properly orientate yourself to the rest of the world. The most visible feature and the strongest expression of “you” in your home is your walls. They are a personal canvas to share your tastes and passions with your guests; to create the mood and comforts you desire through color, art, light, texture and even sound. Whether it be to display the loves of your life, hang your favorite pieces of entertainment technology, or present colors and textures that reflect your personality… the possibilities are truly endless… the perfect combination of science and art.
Drywall Repair of Cracks, Dents and Small Holes
Most interior home walls are built with gypsum or more commonly known as drywall. Drywall is an inexpensive but fragile and very brittle material. It’s low costs and weight as well as ease in shaping is what makes it the preferred and standard material for interior walls today. The benefits are also the problems as drywall can easily be damaged when doing simple things like: vacuuming, moving furniture, hanging decorations, even blasting those huge sound system speakers, or just when the kiddos are rough housing. These are usually minor dings and dents or hairline cracks and holes which can be a real eye sore.
Larger drywall repair situations are often intentional demolition due to the need for larger repairs inside a wall, such as moving or adding lighting fixtures, replacing or repairing in-wall electrical lines, outlets and switches or having to do whole house water pipe replacement. These situations require installing and remodeling of larger sections of drywall quickly so you don’t expose you and your family to unnecessary amounts of insulation dust and heating or cooling loss.
Other drywall repair situations can be caused by storm damage, water pipes bursting, or even small kitchen and bathroom water catastrophes such as dishwasher, disposal, toilet and faucet failures and leaks. Often times these types of damages can go unnoticed for long periods of time and can quickly turn to mold, a major health concern for you and your family. These repairs often require removing and replacing large sections and sometimes even entire walls of drywall for repair.
Older Home Drywall Remodeling
Many older homes were designed with older textures and materials that aren’t as pleasing as newer and more modern techniques. Older drywall installations often used nails instead of screws and over time, nails begin to pop out and show. Ceilings were often covered with “popcorn” acoustical material that is very messy and unsightly as it ages, often needing removal. Older ceiling drywall will also over time begin to droop and discolor, requiring a full new drywall replacement.
