Make It Good As New
Sometimes life throws us curveballs. Sometimes a lot. Whether it was a leaky roof, a door knob that flew into the wall or an angry boot, Excellence Painting here in San Antonio can patch it up or completely replace your drywall. The most important thing to consider before drywall repair is completed is making sure the cause of the drywall damage has been taken care of. For instance, if you have a leak in your roof or a pipe is leaking behind the wall you’ll need to fix that first. If not, you’ll find yourself needing drywall repair over and over again which can become very pricey.
Drywall repair to water damaged areas can be some of the most strenuous and laborsome work there is, depending on the level of water damage that has occurred. In some cases we may even need to come out for multiple visits if it’s really bad. Sometimes the entire drywall will need to be removed and the insulation replaced. This is necessary so that all the moisture behind the wall or ceiling can be removed. If left there, moisture can create mildew and mold that can lead to very expensive repairs later and even health issues.
There are many companies out there that offer drywall repair, but just because a company can perform a service doesn’t mean that it can perform it well. Our team of professionals are some of the best in the state at finishing drywall repair, and we’ll back that up. Here’s a little tip from us. A quick way to check if your entire section of sheetrock will need to be replaced because of water damage is to perform the finger test. If you poke the wall or ceiling with your finger and it’s firm then you may only need it repainted, but if it’s soft then the whole section might need to be replaced.
