How to Tell if Your Drywall Needs to be Replaced

As you plan out your home remodel or prepare to paint a room in your house, it's important to assess the drywall, as well. If the drywall in one or more of the rooms of your house needs to be repaired or replaced, you'll only cause more of an issue if you opt to paint over it without taking the time to contact a repair company, first. Instead, handle the issue correctly and contact Herrings Roofing to have the situation evaluated.

Your drywall may need to be replaced if you're experiencing the following issues:

Water Damage - If your home has been flooded or experienced storm damage, it's possible that your drywall may have water damage. This is a serious issue that can be difficult to fix on your own. If you discover water damage as you evaluate your home, it's important that you contact us to help you repair the drywall. Otherwise, water damage, mold damage, or mildew can continue to spread beneath the surface, causing far more issues with your walls. You may not be able to see all of the issues that you're already experiencing, so it's important to contact a professional for a full evaluation as soon as possible.

Holes in Drywall - Holes in the drywall can also be a serious issue. Don't make the mistake of trying to repair them on your own, if you're not qualified to do so. Before you begin your home improvement project, contact our skilled professionals to assist you with repairing the holes. We can assist you with drywall repairs, no matter the size, so that you can continue with your renovations.

Cracks - If you have cracks in your drywall, especially large cracks, it can be a sign that your home's foundation is shifting over time. Before you simply fill them in and paint over them, it makes sense to have the issue evaluated by a professional. We can let you know if you're dealing with a major issue with your home, or if your drywall has simply cracked due to age, weakness, or improper installation.

Bumps or Bulges - Bumps or bulges in your drywall are usually caused by incorrect or rushed installation. These issues may not be noticeable until much later, but when they appear they are very obvious. Herrings Roofing can evaluate the issues you're experiencing with your drywall and help repair them, so that you'll have a smooth drywall installation that's ready to paint.

If you've been dealing with issues with your drywall and need to have them evaluated and repaired, contact Herrings Roofing today. We'll visit your home, take a look at the problems that you're experiencing, and help devise a plan to repair the drywall entirely, leaving you with walls that you can be proud of.
