Wear and tear can happen and there may come a time when your drywall needs to be replaced. Whether you’re renovating or need to repair damage, there are many reasons why you might need drywall replacement. The Great Wall in Calgary shares more:
There are holes or dents
One sign that your drywall needs to be replaced is if there’s holes or dents in it. Tiny holes from hanging pictures is no big deal, but the more damage there is the less stable the drywall. In some cases, the damage will only get worse over time. If there are larger holes or dents in the drywall, it’s best to replace it. If you don’t know where to start, a drywall contractor can help with either repair or replacements to your walls. Keep your walls safe, and watch out when moving your furniture!
There’s water damage
Water damage can appear in many forms in your drywall. Whether it be a discoloured patch or the presence of mold, it’s never a good sign. It’s a good idea to replace the drywall as quickly as possible if water damage is found. Not only does it indicate a water issue that requires attention, but mold can be dangerous, especially for your family or guests in your home. If not replaced soon, it can start to spread to other components of the home near the drywall. If you see any signs of water damage to your drywall, don’t hesitate to replace it.
There are cracks
Over time, depending on the home’s age or condition, cracks can begin to appear in drywall. Similar to smaller holes, smaller cracks may be able to be repaired without the hassle of replacing all the drywall in the area. Large cracks, however, do require your attention. You’re more likely to find cracks near doors or windows, due to weather conditions potentially impacting your house, or just from the hustle and bustle of family life. If you see cracks in your drywall, give it your attention. In some cases, it could even mean there is an issue with your home’s foundation. Have a contractor check it out.
