What does a Drywall Repair Service include?

Do you have a few holes, cracks or dents in your walls? Perth's professional drywall repair services have got you covered. Regular drywall repair and maintenance is essential in keeping your home looking great. So whether you're dealing with an unsightly hole or slight damage from daily wear and tear, Perth's drywall contractors are here to assist you with any issue you might have. Here's what's covered in a typical drywall repair service:

Repairing small to medium-sized holes and cracks
Finding a big hole in your drywall isn't much fun, but fixing it isn't a big problem either. Your drywall technician will be able to fix anything from a small puncture caused by a doorknob to huge craters caused by accidental impacts. Depending on the size of the hole, your technician will choose the best method to fix it and get your walls back to their original state. Smaller dents and holes can be fixed by scraping away any loose debris and applying lightweight spackle over the hole until it's filled. When it comes to larger holes caused by a doorknob or an accidental impact, your technician will use a drywall patch kit covered with lightweight joint compound and feather its edges, so it blends with the wall.
Repairing big holes
For larger holes, your drywall contractor will use a piece of drywall to cover the hole. They'll cut along the lines of the drywall patch using a drywall knife. They'll check for wiring on the inside of the wall and use two small furring strips on two sides of the hole so they can secure the new patch in with screws. Once the patch is secure, they'll apply joint tape and compound and sand the area afterwards.
Popped nail heads
To fix popped nail heads, your technician will drive in a drywall screw 2-3 cm above the existing hole, drive in the popped nail and use spackle to cover the screws before sanding the area. Other repairs that are included in the service include:

  • Cracks from settling
  • Plaster repair
  • Restoring discoloured and damaged areas
  • Damage from moisture
  • Furniture scuffs
  • Caulking
  • Throwing darts holes
  • Damage from kids
  • Damage from mice
  • Regular wear and tear
  • Holes from drywall anchors After each repair, your contractor will finish up with a light sanding, primer and paint. You can expect each repair to take around 1 to 4 days, depending on the scope of work. Smaller repair jobs, such as the ones we covered above take no more than a couple of hours of work, while larger repair projects such as termite damage, moisture damage or damage caused by improper tile removal require a lot more time and effort. No drywall job is beyond the scope of Perth's professional drywall contractors, so no matter if you're dealing with a small dent, a big hole or moisture damage, you can leave it up to the professionals to do all the necessary repairs and get your home looking great again.
