Drywall is pretty durable and contributes to overall wall strength by locking the studs together, but it can be damaged by a variety of means. Whether your drywall is cracked, dented, broken, or has holes or water damage, we can repair drywall so it looks good as new. When we repair drywall we do it right so it is as strong or stronger than it was originally. If you don't repair damaged drywall, over time the damage can progress from a minor repair to a major repair, so it's best to get it repaired sooner rather than later. You don't want to just finish over a damaged area as that isn't likely to last. At Lubbock Drywall Contractors, we've specialized in all types of drywall and sheetrock repair in the Lubbock area for over 8 years.
One of the most common issues is drywall damage caused by holes or cracks. Most drywall repair projects cost a homeowner between seventy-five and two hundred dollars. On average, you'd expect to spend about $250-$500 for a skilled contractor to fix multiple small holes and cracks in just a single room with 5patching compound and patches. However, the lowest cost could be around $40-$50 for simply capping a couple of small nails.
Another common issue is caused by drywall mud or cracks. When these cracks become larger they can become difficult to repair. If you find yourself in this situation you should consider buying some patching compound. You should also have a couple of sponges available in case the mud or crack gets too deep. Keep in mind that even the smallest cracks or holes can turn into a major problem if left undetected, so take care of these problems immediately.
Paint can be a major contributing factor to drywall water damage. Mildew and mold can form if water seeps into the wood framing. Mildew can easily grow on any painted surface, but mold can grow in areas where water damage has occurred. This is why it is imperative to always remember to wipe down the surface after any spill or leak is cleaned up. Mold spores are very contagious and can easily be carried by anyone in the house who then comes into contact with the affected area.
Dented areas or holes may require more intense cleaning and repairs than holes or dents due to their size and weight. If you have a dent or large hole in the drywall, it would be best to call in professional drywall damage experts. They have the experience and tools necessary to thoroughly analyze the situation and determine what exactly the problem is. The majority of small dents and cracks can be easily fixed without calling in an expert, but larger holes or dents usually need to be tackled by a professional.
The average drywall repair costs will vary depending on the type of drywall repair needed as well as the location of the damage. For example, damaged electrical wiring will often be far more expensive than drywall repairs that cover only a small area. As well, if the damages are located in a low-traffic room, the cost of the job will also tend to be higher. When you are repairing your own drywall, you should try to avoid the use of any chemicals in any way. Doing so can cause the problem to worsen and make the repairs permanent and irreversible. You should also consider calling in an expert if the problem has become too bad or you cannot fix it yourself.
