Drywall might be hard to the touch but it it is a delicate material. One small slip can result in holes and dents or deep scratches. Drywall damage can ruin the look of your walls and wreck a paint job. You can’t just slap tape or a fresh coat of paint over damaged drywall and replacing full sheets can quickly become out of hand expensive. Instead of breaking your budget, call Pickle Painting instead!
Many property owners are quick to hire on a general contractor to complete their basement renovation but once a project is done, you are all on your own. Even a great job wears down over time and leaves your materials open to damage and aging. Instead of learning to live with damaged walls, trust a professional with your drywall repair.
Drywall Patching & Replacement: What Can Go Wrong
In an aging or newly renovated home, drywall is always susceptible to unexpected bumps or kicks. Opening a door too quickly can leave a knob-sized hole in the wall behind. Repairing these holes seem simple enough but drywall, as a material is unforgiving. Any uneven areas will be plainly visible and will stick out like a sore thumb – which you might also encounter with a DIY repair.
If improperly repaired, it makes painting impossible, leaving bubbles or grooves behind on the surface of the drywall. Without the right level of experience and skill, drywall repair can do more harm than good. Even lacking the right tools can mean flimsy applications. If the main goal of your DIY repair is to save money, consider the tools that need to be purchased in order to get the best results. Hiring a professional means everything from a wall stud finder, drywall compound, drywall screws to a drywall knife (or putty knife), is brought right to your front door.
When taking on a DIY project, it is important to consider both the time and mess involved. Proper preparation can help to identify not only large holes but structural issues as well. If you are noticing that a piece of drywall is bowing, it is always better to have a trained set of eyes to evaluate the problem. Pickle painters expertly apply a thin joint compound (better known as mud) where necessary, to cover small holes in drywall and can advise on how to treat larger issues.
