Vancouver Drywall Repair
There is hardly a home in British Columbia that does not have drywall. Using sheets of drywall is common practice because they are cost-effective, quick to install and they look great but the downside of these practical additions is that they are delicate! Whether you are dealing with small holes left behind from photo frames or large holes left behind from door knobs or unexpected bumps, our Pickle Painters can help!
Drywall damage is a common occurrence but that doesn’t mean that you have to live with unsightly stains or horrendous holes. When installing sheets, property owners are quick to call in professional drywall contractors but these technical pros are expensive and often unnecessary for minor fixes. Instead of breaking the bank on unnecessary replacements, call Pickle Pros for cost effective services and excellent results!
What is Damaging Your Drywall?
A piece of drywall might feel hard to the touch but this material is more delicate than it seems. The surface of drywall is very vulnerable to scratches, holes and dents. Adding a thin coat of paint to these areas might provide a bit of visual relief but it does not do much for the overall condition of your walls.
There are plenty of DIY techniques available online through “how to” videos and tutorials but an improper approach can do more harm than good. It is simple enough to take a trip to a hardware store to pick up drywall compound and a putty knife. Improper application, off-colour patches, uneven surfaces and even failing to allow enough time for compound to dry can all mean serious problems down the line.
Every day activities can lead to damaged drywall without you even knowing it. For example, hanging a picture without locating a wall stud first can lead to serious drag marks and holes. On top of that, plain screws are terrible for managing weight over time. A drywall screw can help to disperse weight properly, prevent unnecessary holes and limit the cost of wall or ceiling repairs. When it is time to replace a sheet of drywall or patch that hole in the wall, improper techniques can lead to big trouble, so call Pickle Painting instead.
