Drywall is an essential part of your house and walls. But accidents happen, and sometimes drywall needs repairing. Whether your ceiling needs to be repaired after an overflowing bathtub, or a hole needs to be filled in, you’ll need expert drywall repair to permanently fix the structure and look of your home’s walls.
Repairing Drywall After Damage
Repairing drywall is not for the faint of heart. There are a lot of different things to consider when fixing your drywall, and here are just the basics:
- Where are the wall studs? Electrical wiring typically runs up and down wall studs. Do you know exactly where all of your wall studs are, and what kind of cables run along those studs? Turn of all electricity to the area before cutting into drywall.
- Is there any plumbing behind the wall? Take it from the experts–if you’re cutting into drywall in order to repair it, you want to know exactly where all of the water lines are.
- Electrical outlets, switches, and lighting wiring: Along with knowing where all of your wiring and pipes are, you’ll also want to consider any outlets or wiring within the damaged part of the wall. Do you know how to properly install drywall around these fixtures? And no, you shouldn’t just cover over them.
- Ceilings: If your ceiling is water-damaged, have you assessed the total damage done? Do you know exactly where all the pipes and electrical wiring is? Ceiling drywall repair is even more likely to have complications, and even more likely to have wiring and pipes running in them.
