Local Drywall Company Shares 3 Drywall Maintenance Tips, West Adams, Colorado

Most homes contain drywall for the walls and ceiling. Some section are smooth while others may have specific textures for a different look. As a homeowner, you will experience times you have to update or repair this material. You may be able to do it yourself, or you might prefer to work with a drywall company. Below, Marquez Drywall in Thornton, CO, shares three tips to help you maintain your drywall with their help or on your own.

Maintain Your Drywall With These 3 Tips

1. Avoid Water Damage

Water is one of the biggest threats to drywall. Repeated exposure to a leak or condensation can lead to mold growth and weakened walls. If you notice water damage, call a drywall company to come tear out the portion and install a patch or replace the section. This will make the wall look smoother and remove potentially dangerous mold. By using high-gloss paint in bathrooms, you will prevent drywall rot. Make sure to fix any leaks that may affect your walls, so the problem doesn’t return once you’ve fixed the drywall.

2. Patch Textures

They’ll also know how to match the texture of the wall or ceiling around the area. That includes popcorn, orange peel, skip, and hand-trowel marks. These drywall textures can be tricky to replicate if you don’t have previous experience with this construction skill. 

3. Adjust Popped Nails

Over time, it’s not uncommon for drywall nails to pop out a bit as the material shrinks and expands with different temperatures and levels of humidity. Make sure to hammer the nails back in so they don’t become a safety hazard for your family. Then, patch up any cracked paint around the nail hole, so the wall looks normal again.

 

Doing smooth patches and pounding in nails are two easy fixes most homeowners can do by themselves. If you need a larger patch or help repairing textured parts, it’s a good idea to call a drywall company.
