Restoring any structure to its original beauty takes time, energy and quite a bit of skill. Take the interior of the building, for example. Most of the walls are covered with sheets of material often known as drywall and colloquially termed ‘Sheetrock’ after the most commonly used variety. For older buildings, this covering may be something else such as stucco or plaster. Each of these products requires special consideration when installing or repairing them along with the help of an experienced Drywall Service. There can be many reasons for this like water damage in one area and cracks or holes in another.
One of the benefits to drywall is making large repairs. Because drywall is placed in sheets, it is reasonably simple to remove the damaged area and splice in a new piece of drywall. The trick is to expose enough of the studs to secure the edges properly. This may not be as easy as it sounds if the prior work was handled poorly. Once the hole has been filled, the spliced area will need to be taped, floated, sanded and blended into the rest of the wall. This allows for a better paint finish since the underlying patch should not be visible.
Water is arguably the worst thing to happen to a building, and one reason for this is the way drywall disintegrates once it soaks up a little water. You can almost see it happen as the gypsum inside the product begins to swell. A little pressure on the wet gypsum can make it crumble and the more water involved, the worse the damage gets. Similar problems can occur with both plaster and stucco.
The main reason to consider any Drywall Service is to prepare the wall for paint. Poorly applied patches could show up under the paint or may be a problem later on when the patch falls apart. Even worse, most poorly applied patches tend to be wavy and never quite blend in. The actual solution is to remove a larger area so the hole can be covered and the spliced areas will tape and float better.
