While the toughness of drywall is often underestimated, this does not mean it’s indestructible. As with any material it will need a level of maintenance from time to time. Drywall will overtime develop unsightly holes or cracks. When this starts to happen your best course of action is to patch the damaged area. At Raleigh Drywall NC we pride ourselves on our ability to handle any patching job. When done correctly, a professional drywall patching job will go totally un- noticed, as it should. As just one of the many drywall services we have perfected over the years, we guarantee we have the patching solution for you
Use The Right Stuff
Depending on the size of the affected area. Be it a nasty scratch or a small hole, using the right materials and tools is essential to getting the task done correctly. When repairing small holes and scratches our experts usually use only a tiny bit of filler. They ensure the filler is flush to the board’s surface showing no signs of the defects. When it comes to larger holes and cracks our highly trained stuff recommend a mesh backing to reinforce the damaged area. It also provides an extra layer of strength to the weakened area. At Raleigh Drywall Pros we only use the right stuff.
Watch OUT For Those Wires
One of the main reasons we encourage our clients to seek our professional help when patching their drywall is those dangerous electrical wires that might run through where they want to cut and repair. Rule of thumb has taught us it is safe to assume that if the repair job is near an electrical outlet, electrical wiring isn’t far away. We have also learnt that not all building codes are followed and have on many occasions discovered wires where they should not be. Taking all this into account, it is easy to see why the best advice we give our clients is to call the experts at Raleigh Drywall Pros.
Don’t Cheat The Sanding
This crucial step in the patching process cannot be overstated. Do NOT rush this. Our experts always put a little extra time and effort into the sanding process to ensure the repaired area is not noticeable and everything seems good as new. From waiting for the repaired area to dry correctly and using only the finest grit sandpaper we ensure a job done right , first time every time . Any flaws will easily show up if this process is not completed correctly, especially if a layer of paint is applied. Raleigh Drywall Pros, we never cheat the processes.
Protect And Inspect
Safety is another area where we refuse to compromise. Drywall can be extremely dangerous to our staff. Especially if any of the fine dust is inhaled. This fine dust can cause major damage to a person’s lungs. To ensure their safety we provide them with top quality masks and gloves to cover their hands from the dehydrating effects of drywall dust. These are just a few of the safety measures we employ to keep our staff and clients safe. We also ensure that we inspect every inch of the repair job to ensure customer satisfaction.
