Drywall Repair Prior to Interior Painting is Key

Did you know that before a professional painting contractor starts work on your interior painting project, it’s important to ask them about repairing your drywall? In essence, walls and ceilings are prone to minor blemishes such as small cracks. In addition, certain conditions can cause major damage to wall and ceiling surfaces. The bottom line is that drywall repair is necessary if you want the painting work to look good when all is said and done. So, what are the culprits that cause problems with your drywall? Although drywall is a great product because of its strength and durability, it simply cannot stay intact forever.

Your interior walls experience wear and tear due to everyday living. For example, moving furniture around, hammering nails in the wall in order to hang pictures, and children and or pets banging into the walls on a regular basis. In addition,  drywall damage often occurs due to moisture and temperature fluctuations. For example, both temperature and humidity changes are typical reasons why cracks form and loose joint tape occurs. The good news is that a professional painting contractor that specializes in drywall repair service can repair drywall cracks and get your joint tape looking just as good as new.

Another reason why your drywall cracks is because your home settles. In essence, when your foundation shifts in the ground it tends to cause cracks in the drywall. Another cause of drywall damage is water leaks. If you see water stains on the surface of your walls or ceilings and or the  drywall starts to bubble or bow out, you may very well have a slow water leak behind the drywall. If that’s the situation, it’s important to have the slow leak fixed before the drywall repair and painting process begins. If you have any issues with the drywall do not instruct your painting contractor to simply paint over the damage.

The painting work will not look good and the top layer of paint could easily flake off. Your professional painting contractor should have the ability to repair any cracks, holes, or dents in your drywall. That will result in a far smoother interior painting application that will last. A smooth, fresh coat of paint by a professional painting company can enhance the entire look and feel of your home interior as long as the drywall is in good shape prior to the painting begins.
