Repairing a hole in the drywall takes more than just obtaining a kit. After making a piece of drywall that will fit the hole, adjusting that repair patch so that it doesn’t fall into the hole is the next step. Often, wood is needed to frame the interior of the hole, attached in such a way that the new patch can be fitted and screwed on top of the wood frames. The whole project must be covered with a wet plaster “mud” so that the screws and their indents are not visible. This process needs to be meticulous for best results: just the right amount of mud applied, scraped down so that it’s not excessive, and then let dry. After it has dried, even if the application was a good thickness, there will be some sanding needed to smooth the edges of the mud level with the rest of the wall. This sanding releases small dust particles that settle onto hair, clothing, and the ground. We can clean this before we leave so you don’t have to. Now the patch is finally ready for the fresh coat of paint.
While repairing holes is a pretty common project, you may have other areas that need similar attention for smaller defects. If you’re selling your home you may need to patch up the defects were screws from shelves were drilled in or from TV mounting. Perhaps you want to get rid of the pinpricks where posters were attached or the marks from nails left behind from rearranged kitchen cabinets before applying a coat of paint to freshen up the room. You are looking at a similar mudding and sanding process. Avoid having to research what type of mud, of the many available, would be best for what project, or having to buy a large container for a small project. We come prepared with the mud and the tools for application, completion, and clean up.
Mudding and sanding a larger area, where drywall becomes a new wall, is a laborious undertaking that absolutely requires skill, patience, the right tools, and important safety equipment. Without all of these components, a seemingly simple task becomes a headache by perpetuating a cycle of mudding and sanding, especially if this is your first time undertaking this project. Frequently, mud applied along seams is too thick, and dries with a very noticeable lip. This edge then has to be sanded down but without the right type of sand paper, sanding a thicker edge can lead to sanding too deeply and even stripping some of the drywall itself. This then leads to another layer of mud needed, more time for this to dry, and sanding all over again. The dust from this is an annoying side effect that can be a pain to clean. This time-consuming, messy process can be alleviated with the right help.
