With over a decade of experience marching across the United States of America doing reliable drywall and plaster repair jobs, The Patch Boys are masterful craftsmen.
Sometimes, just by virtue of time or simply luck, drywall, plaster, and sheetrock get holed, dinged, dented, nicked, cracked, marked, scratched, etcetera, etc., and sometimes, this is easy enough to fix, and maybe you can even do it yourself! But if those last two are not applicable, the Patch Boys has an extensive suite of options and strategies they offer to give you flawless and pristine repair results.
Common Drywall Problems
With over a decade of experience, the Patch Boys have seen almost everything drywall and plaster can give them. Hey, fair enough; drywall damage is one of the most–if not the most–common home repair problems across the United States of America. Although the damage might seem simple enough (sometimes it’s just a hole, and what do you do with a hole?), the solutions for fixing it can be quite demanding: a lot of time and a lot more attention. Drywall repair requires a meticulous performance that most homeowners are not well-equipped to deal with. If the repair is even just below average, at best, you’ll get a lousy finish–but at worst? That would be foundational structural damage that will undoubtedly lead to further strain and gradual deterioration. So, yeah, you have to be really careful when doing drywall repair.
The Patch Boys are experts in drywall and plaster repair, and having them by your side is a guarantee of perfect results delivered impeccably, swiftly, and efficiently.
Drywall can get damaged easily and in many various ways. For a simple patch of sheetrock, it can be holed, cracked, dented, dampened, singed, lacerated, etcetera, etc. These are the most common ways drywall gets damaged:
Denting. The method in which two panels of drywall are fitted together is by using a piece of metal to hold two of the edges together. If the spot where the metal fitting is regularly struck or gets worn out over time, dents can easily form all across the drywall.
Protrusions. Sometimes initial drywall installations are not up to par, and the nails securing joints, studs, etc., are not fastened at a correct angle, and the nail head pierces through the drywall, erupting and creating a messy and crude look.
Puncturing. Holes or other large openings on the drywall surface typically happen because of concentrated or, at least, large-scale impacts on the paneling, like a doorknob crashing into it or a piece of furniture being thrown and hitting the drywall. This also leads to damage on the other side of the panel, messing up wiring and such.
Scuffing. Inattentive or negligent handling of large objects leads to the drywall getting thrashed and welted; continuous occurrences of these strikes eventually tear down the gypsum surface, creating marks and grooves along the drywall panel.
Removals. The detachment of wall attachments, e.g., tiles, wallpapers, ornaments, mirrors, etc., might break part of the drywall off, leading to unevenness or irregularities with the drywall panel.
Water. The most critical and insidious damage that can be done to drywall is through moisture buildup. Consistent water contact hastens damage to drywall structural integrity and might even allow molds or other fungal specimens to grow. If unattended, water damage on drywall can lead to other larger problems.
