Albuquerque Drywall Repair
Living in your home means there’s going to be some wear and tear—and that means cracks, holes and dents in your drywall. Usually drywall repair only requires minor patches. But even small patches can draw big attention if not done well. The experts at Mike’s Quality Painting will repair drywall damage before an interior paint job.
Common Drywall Damage
Most drywall damage happens on accident or as a result of aging:
- Nail holes
- Settling cracks (usually under windows or around door frames)
- Holes behind doors where locks frequently hit
- Dents from furniture being rearranged or moved
Sometimes remodeling projects result in larger areas needing drywall repair. However, if drywall repair is needed because of water damage, make sure to have the underlying leak fixed before patching drywall, or you’ll just need it done again in a few weeks or months.
Unless you’re a regular DIY-er, it may be more cost-effective to hire a professional to do your drywall repair. The materials for drywall repair are relatively inexpensive, but the items add up—putty knives, utility knife, drywall saw, drill, patching screens, compound, etc. Plus, compound is usually sold in large quantities—you may end up with a lot of material you’ll never need again, at least not before they go bad (drywall compound has a shelf life of about 9 months).
Once you get all the materials, there’s still the issue of performance. Drywall compound isn’t the most cooperative substance. DIY drywall repair often ends up lumpy—not quite the texture you’re trying to match.
