CHILLIWACK DRYWALL REPAIR CONTRACTOR
As a building settles on its foundation, it moves in different directions as weight and gravity takes its course with the materials used. Sheets of drywall shift with each other causing taped joints to crumple or crack. Sheets may also lift from the screws causing "popped screws". A professional drywall boarder can reduce these problems to possibly no repairs necessary, but these problems are also dependent on a good framing and structure job. Furthermore, more damage can occur from the expanding and shrinking of the building throughout the changes of the seasons every year. This can also be reduced from where the joints of drywall are left. This is a big reason why it is recommended to hire professionals to install the Sheetrock in your home: so that virtually no cracks and popped screws occur.
It is also just as important, if not more important, to hire a taper to finish the job. An underwhelming taping job can really increase the chances of joints to crack again. Also, the goal is to hide the fact that there are joints anywhere after the walls have been primed and painted. A drywall compound has to be applied a couple times to float and skim the wall so that it is as flat and smooth as possible as the rest of the wall.
Through experience, we have found that even do-it-yourself home owners who are the handyman type may tackle the boarding themselves, but will prefer to get a professional drywall finisher to prepare the walls for paint. These people would be able to do the most of their renovation, but when it comes to getting messy with the task of seeing their potential work on the walls they'll see every day, they would much rather hire someone to do it right and quickly.
This is a skill that involves patience and experience to nail. This is also a talent that costs easily five hundred dollars just for the basic tools. Of course it is fairly cheap for a repair kit or a pan and knife, but unless its a very small repair job, this route will swallow up more of your valued time than necessary.
If you're looking to tackle this job by yourself, we recommend spending some time on YouTube to get some key tips. We also still advise YouTube searching how to board and where to leave joints if you want to drywall and just hire a finisher. One quick important tip would be to avoid leaving joints at the corners of doors and windows.

Water damage is the number one problem that shows up on ceilings. Perhaps a bathroom on the floor above had a leak. Mold build up and stains are other causes that you might want to fix on your ceiling.
We can cut out the old, install a new piece of drywall, and finish smooth to be textured or painted. If the ceiling is textured, we can match the old texture to blend in the patch. However, depending on the age of the ceiling, we may insist on painting the ceiling afterwards to make the ceiling one colour as aged ceiling texture can get a little discoloured. This is a service that we can also provide. Of course if the ceiling was originally smooth, the ceiling would only need to be primed and painted. Another option is to tear down the whole ceiling to put up fresh drywall and texture or paint. Send us a call and we can come check out the condition of your ceilings.
