Frequently asked questions about drywall repair contractors

What do drywall contractors do?

Drywall contractors do three different things. First, these drywall pros do sheetrock installation. This involves maneuvering big, awkward pieces of sheetrock skillfully to avoid damaging them, or causing damage to other items in the way. These contractors cut and shape the panels so that they will fit into place. Then they fasten the drywall panels where they belong. Next, drywall contractors tape the seams between the panels of sheetrock and seal the seams and the screw heads with drywall compound. They also coat and sand the surfaces until the walls and corners are smooth.

If you’ve got a hole in your drywall, a qualified contractor can repair it. Your drywall contractor will know how to fix the hole. They may be able to patch it, or if the hole is bigger than a half foot wide, they will use a rigid material to fill it. The drywall pro can then sand the patched or filled hole so that your drywall looks good as new.

How do you repair damaged walls?

There are two basic approaches to take if you need to repair damaged walls that are made of drywall. For holes smaller than a half foot wide can be patched. Scrape loose debris away from hole. Cover the dent or hole with a quick-drying spackle so that the area of the hole is level with the drywall surface. Allow the spackle to dry the recommended amount of time. Sand the area until it is smooth. If the hole is a half foot wide or bigger, you’ll need to cover the hole with another piece of drywall. Covering a bigger hole is a more complicated procedure than repairing a smaller hole in your drywall.

It may make sense to call a drywall contractor or handyman to repair large holes in your drywall. They’ll know which products will work best for your needs. They’ll have the tools and know-how to get the damaged wall repaired so that it looks like new. If you need to repair a damaged wall, it makes sense to call a drywall contractor for skilled assistance.

How much does it cost to repair drywall and paint?

If you need to repair drywall and paint it, the cost will vary based on a number of factors. The extent of damage to the drywall, including the size of the hole or holes in the wall will affect the cost of repair. The size of the area that will need to be sanded after the repair and then painted will affect how much the job will cost. The amount you’ll need to budget for your repair and painting job will also be affected by whether you hire a contractor or do it yourself. Contractors’ rates will vary according to your locale, their availability, and their level of expertise.

While you may be tempted to try to save money by repairing and painting the drywall yourself, you might want to take various factors into consideration. There is an art to repairing and painting drywall so that it looks perfectly smooth. Also, drywall dust poses dangers to your health. A pro will have the tools, safety equipment, and know-how to get the job done beautifully. Hiring a pro can save you time and might guarantee a better result.

How big of a hole can you patch in drywall?

Drywall is very popular thanks to its strength and durability. However, it can be damaged in lots of ways. You can make a dent or hole in the drywall when you move furniture, you will make a hole in it when you hang curtains or art, and roughhousing kids may inadvertently damage drywall. In addition, if your home settles it may stress the walls causing cracks in the drywall. If your walls get wet due to leaky piping, the drywall will be damaged. A common cause of drywall damage is fluctuations in humidity and temperature.

If your drywall has a small hole, up to about six inches from side to side, the hole can be patched. You can use a fast-drying spackle to patch the hole. After bringing the hole area up to the level of the rest of the drywall, let it dry for the recommended amount of time. After the patch dries, you’ll need to sand it so that it is smooth. It may be necessary to paint the patched area in your drywall to complete the repair.

Is drywall dust dangerous?

Drywall installation and repair often involves sanding the drywall and its joining compound. Dust that comes from sanding the joining compound poses dangers to health. This dust contains toxic materials such as talc, gypsum and silica. Exposure to this drywall-related dust is especially harmful for those who smoke or who suffer from various respiratory ailments such as asthma or COPD. Exposure to drywall dust can cause coughing, sore throat, irritated eyes. Repeated exposure to drywall-work-related dust can cause silicosis, asthma, and worse.

If you are looking at taking on a drywall repair or installation project for your home, take the health risks into consideration. If you are not familiar with how to most safely work with drywall installation or repair, it may make sense to hire a pro. A drywall contractor will do your repair or installation safely and effectively. A pro will wear a protective mask, and may use wet sanding. They will follow best practices for safely working with drywall and the dust that comes with drywall installation and repair.

Do painters repair drywall?

Before you have painting done inside your home, talk to the painters about repairing the drywall. Painting over smooth, beautifully repaired drywall yields much better results than painting over blemishes in the drywall. If the drywall has more than small blemishes, it is even more crucial to have it repaired prior to painting. Repairing dings, dents, or holes in drywall before a painting job does more than make it look better. Having your drywall repaired reinforces its integrity. If you keep your drywall in good repair, it will help keep the elements at bay. Drywall in good repair helps with a home’s energy efficiency. So, it makes sense to repair drywall before you have it painted. Some painters will repair minor blemishes in drywall before they paint.

When you have hired a painter to work on your drywall, have them look at the condition of your walls. The painter you have hired may be skilled at repairing small blemishes in your drywall. If the drywall is in need of more repair, or if repairing drywall is not in the painter’s skillset, they may recommend hiring a drywall pro.
