Should I Repair or Replace My Drywall?
To repair or to replace? The team at Patches in a Day wants to help you answer this age-old question. A hole or two may only need some quick repair work, but if you’re constantly finding new cracks and nicks in the drywall, replacement is likely your best bet. If you’re unsure about the proper course of action, don’t hesitate to consult our team for advice.
Do I Have to Replace Wet Sheetrock?
Water leakage repair is among our many specialties, but it’s more likely that you’ll need to completely replace wet sheetrock. If the water damage is very minor, you may be able to dry the walls out. However, unchecked water damage can cause significant structural damage to your home. It’s always best to get an expert opinion on whether replacement is necessary after water damage.
