Common causes of drywall damage

Many homes use drywall to create walls for the home. This material is generally sturdy and easy to work with. However, it can sustain damage due to some factors, many of which are out of your control. Whatever the damage, it’s smart to hire interior painting contractors to repair it. But before turning to the professionals, you can have a look at what caused the damage to your drywall.

Leaks

Your roof, windows and doors keep the elements outside where they belong. If any of them get damaged, water can leak inside and damage your drywall. You will begin to notice dark spots and wetness, signaling a bigger problem ahead.

Impacts

Impacts are a common cause of great damage to your drywall. A door knob hitting the wall hard or kids’ rough housing can cause damage in the drywall. Moving furniture, if you are not careful, can also cause damage both to the furniture and the drywall. For minor scratches, interior painting is usually enough to fix the issue.

Foundation Settling

While foundations hold up the house, they can settle for many reasons. A settling foundation can cause cracks and other damage to your drywall. Handyman Connection® of Golden can assess if a new paint job will do or if you need more extensive repairs.

Termites

Everyone hates the idea of termites invading their homes. When they do, they can cause damage that impacts the integrity of your walls. If you notice any signs of these pests, make two calls ASAP. Call your pest control company like Aptive to get rid of them right away. And call your interior painting contractors to take care of the drywall issues. Handyman Connection of Blue Ash is always ready to respond.

Faulty Installation

Homeowners should always hire an experienced contractor to complete all drywall installations. If it isn’t installed right in the first place, your drywall may later on become unstable. It can result in bulging seams, uneven sheet placement and excessive joints. If you spot these signs, consult a professional to fix them before more damage occurs.

Repaint or Repair

Drywall can become damaged by these and other factors. If your drywall gets damaged, discuss your options with interior painting contractors. They will be able to tell you if repainting your walls will be enough or if more repairs are necessary.
