Drywall Repairs and Texture Matching

Drywall Repairs and Texture Matching
If you live in a home long enough, drywall repairs are inevitable. Sooner or later you pull a little too far into the garage while parking, someone slap shots a puck a little too hard or the air conditioning condensation tray stops up in the attic, and the overflow damages the drywall ceiling and walls. Whatever the case may be, WE CAN FIX IT!

If you have had drywall repaired in your home, you know that it can be a messy, drawn-out process. Many companies use a pre-mixed joint compound for repairs. It dries by means of evaporation and can require 12-18 hours for each step of the drywall finishing process, depending upon the humidity and temperature. It can take a day for the taping and the first float to dry, then a day for each skim coat. All of this is before texturing, priming, and painting. The entire process can take a week!

At All Pro Painting Services, we have expert drywall finishers who can quickly remove the damaged drywall and replace it. Our finishers are adept at using a “quick set”  joint compound for taping and bedding.  “Quick set” hardens in a short amount of time by means of a chemical reaction that occurs when it is mixed with water.  Multiple coats can be applied on the same day.  This greatly reduces the number of return trips to your home, and in some cases, all work can be done in one day.  The result is less hassle and a lower cost for our customers.

Another part of drywall repairs that many dread, is the dust generated by sanding. Although a small amount of dust is unavoidable, our drywall finishers will use minimal amounts of sandpaper between coats to smooth the repair, creating the least amount of dust possible. They will expertly apply the joint compound, using only the required amount needed to fill the repair. By doing this, we are able to minimize the amount of sanding required.  We will thoroughly clean all work areas with shop vacs once the job has been completed.

Using these techniques, we can reduce the time required to complete drywall repairs and avoid the dust produced by conventional drywall repair.

Texturing

There are as many patterns of texture for ceilings and walls as there are painters, and it takes a real professional to match a texture so that the repairs are difficult or impossible to detect. We have experts in texture matching that can quickly complete your repairs. And since we do the drywall repairs, texturing, and painting……we will complete your drywall repairs in the shortest time possible in order to minimize any inconvenience to our customers.
