Top Causes Of Drywall Damage
There are many factors that can cause damage to the drywall in your home. It is important to have a professional drywall contract repair this damage to protect your home. Some of the most common causes of drywall damage can be found below:
If the nails are not securly set in the center of the joist or stud, over time a nail my pop through the drywall. Do Not try to hammer the nail back into place, this can lead to more damage.
Scuff marks from furniture are another form of damage you may find, even before you move into your new home. They are typically minor issues and have the appearance of pencil marks or maker stains. You can avoid causing scuffs by carefully moving your furniture around your home. If there is no actuall damage to the drywall, then these can be removed with a household cleaning sponge.
Small holes can be caused by a number of things, like a door or chair impacting the wall with too much force. You can keep this from happening by purchasing protective plates to put where holes will most likely occur. If the holes occur in a place that is not easily repaired or are slighly larger you can contact one of our drywall repair contractors to help you fix the hole.
Large holes often occur with significant trauma to the walls. These are impossible to predict and even harder to prevent. Often times if a large hole occurs a small section of the drywall needs to be removed to fix it. Do not attempt to do this yourself. Improper removal of drywall can lead to gaps and further damage to the wall. Contact one of our drywall repair experts to help you solve the issue.
If a leaky pipe or flooding occurs in your house the drywall will often turn brown around the area where the water has leaked. This is a serious issue and needs to be addressed by a professional. Often times this entails removing large secitons of the damaged drywall as well as hiring a plumber to fix any piping leaks you may have.
6.Loose Joint tape
Joint tape is used to cover nail holes as well as reinforce the seam between two pieces of drywall. If the tape adhesive fails, the structural integrity of the wall can be comprimised. This can cause large pieces of drywall to fall from the ceiling or walls of your home. These issues need to be addressed by a professional drywall contractor to ensure they will not happen again.
