Knowing When to Replace Sheetrock
The interior walls and ceilings in your home consist of sheetrock. This material is a specific type of drywall, which adheres to metal or wood studs using screws or nails. It comprises a layer of plaster sandwiched between two layers of thick paper. Sheetrock is sturdy but not impervious to damages. If you have issues with your sheetrock, let the professionals at Patches In A Day help. Many customers rely on us following water damage. Moisture can weaken sheetrock and cause it to crumble. It may also lead to mold, which will feed on sheetrock’s materials and cause health concerns. Finally, termites may be drawn to sheetrock and cause damages that need professional repairs. Other types of sheetrock damage include:
- Problems that arise from foundational shifts in your home
Our Team Can Repair Small or Large Holes in Sheetrock
Sheetrock is a reliable material, but accidents, doorknobs, and picture nails can cause holes in your walls. Patches In A Day is here to help homeowners in Marin, Napa, and Sonoma Counties when these types of problems arise. Our experts can repair small or large holes, so rely on us whenever you need to repair your sheetrock. To fix small holes, we will:
- Fill the void with lightweight spackle
- Ensure the spackle is level with the rest of the wall
- Allow the spackle to dry for 15 to 30 minutes
- Sand the area using a fine-grit sandpaper
- Brush away debris or dust
- Touch up the paint
Larger holes require a more thorough process. If your hole is larger than four inches, you will need a new piece of drywall. To fix significant sheetrock holes in your wall, our team will:
- Cut out the damaged area in a square or rectangular shape without damaging any wires behind the wall
- Cut and install vertical support behind where the replacement sheetrock will be placed
- Cut a piece of sheetrock to fit the opening
- Secure the sheetrock to the support and wall studs using screws
- Tape and seal the replacement sheetrock
- Sand the area until it is smooth
- Apply a new coat of paint
We Are Adept at Covering Sheetrock Cracks
In addition to repairing holes in your sheetrock, we can also address any cracks. These imperfections typically occur around windows and doors. To repair cracks in your sheetrock, we must first use a sanding sponge to make the surface of your wall or ceiling as smooth as possible. Next, we will apply a coat of joint compound over the damaged area. We will allow it to dry before sanding again to ensure smoothness. Finally, we will apply a crack coating to the repaired surface to prevent a recurrence. After ample curing time, we will prime and repaint the area.
