Drywall is the preferred interior wall material because it’s easier to work with than plaster, and it offers a degree of resistance to mildew and fire. Still, the material is not impervious to damage. Household mishaps, rodents, anchor holes, and excessive moisture can all cause damage to drywall. It may also be necessary to cut drywall to access pipes or wires. It’s important to repair cracks or holes in your drywall as soon as possible to prevent damage to the insulation, wires, and pipes that may lay behind it.
While it may be tempting to fix a scratch or a hole yourself, this can lead to uneven or lumpy walls and ceilings where the repair occurred. Hiring a professional means that you will be ensured a smooth surface that is like new. Salerno Paint & Paper can also re-paint the patched area to match the rest of your wall, or provide a brand new look.
