When there is a lot of damage to drywall, it’s immediately noticeable and can detract from the aesthetics of a room. Fortunately, we here at Durapro Painting aren’t just professional painters in Eagan. We are also drywall repair specialists. So when you hire our professional painters, you can rest easy knowing your drywall will get some TLC too, if needed! Here are a few reasons your drywall might need repaired.

Moisture Problems

If you have experienced any leaky pipes or other plumbing problems, your drywall could have been damaged. The moisture will erode the drywall and that can affect the paint on the walls. And that, in turn, will cause your paint not to last as long as it could. When our professional painters come to your home, we will look out for signs of moisture issues.

Termites

These pesky little bugs are known for eating wood, but they also eat other materials like drywall. We can keep an eye out for signs of these insects, but you might want to call in an exterminator if need be. However, our professional painters can give your walls a fresh coat of paint after we’ve repaired the drywall.

Settling Foundation

The older your home gets, the more the foundation will settle. And that settling can cause stress crack in your drywall. The repairs are usually simple in nature, and our professional painters can take care of these repairs.

Day to Day Impacts

Drywall is sometimes less than one inch thick, so even if you only bump into it slightly, you can leave a dent. One or two small dents are easily overlooked, but they can start to build up over time. Repairing these dents is also an easy process that our professional painters can take care of.
