Looking for drywall repair service in Toronto and Mississauga
There is much reason to call Mississauga handyman for drywall repair. Water damage is the biggest culprit. Just recently we were called in to do a REPAIR in a basement where water had flowed down the pipes and collected in a corner of a bulkhead and went along the studs and bridges inside the bulkhead framework.
Mississauga handyman was called in to fix broken drywall problem at a home.
The water had washed out the aggregate in the drywall making it soft and crumbly and also made a belly in the flat part of the drywall. This all has to be cut out and cleaned up. Then some fresh drywall had to be cut to size and placed into the original spot that the old drywall was in.
Afterward, the new drywall had to be screwed back into place with drywall screws and then plastered over with sheetrock 90 which is a quick drying dry plaster compound. You mix up a pail of this and you can use it for one hour before it starts setting. That is enough time to plaster whatever you need on the bulkhead. Afterward about three hours it is ready to sand for another coat. If one is a good plaster man probably the two coats will do the job but if not he will have to be put on as a skim coat to finish the job off for paint ready.
Drywall is a hard and durable surface that can be obtained in sheets most commonly 4 x 8 sheets but can also be bought in 4 x 10 sheets and even larger at 4 x 12′ at Home Depot. Basically, it’s very compressed gypsum creating a very hard surface and is baked to around 500° to lose all the moisture in it and it is covered on both sides with special paper the first layer to be brown undercoat paper and then there is a finish coat white paper. This is the paper you will be painting on. This paper is less permeable for moisture penetration but if you have some exposed brown paper it is best to seal that first before repairing it. A great number of Toronto house buildings within the last 50 years have drywall instead of plaster walls
The nice thing about drywall is the ease of maintenance. If one needs to replace or repair the drywall it is quite easy. First of all, it’s quite easy to obtain a sheet or a piece of drywall at your local building center. If you need a small piece you have two options. The first option is you can get 2 x 2′ pieces of drywall for about five dollars or you can buy an entire sheet for about $12 but the problem is how do you take an entire sheet home in a car, of course, this is a savings but it might not be worth it. Mississauga handyman painting and carpentry services always have on hand the right size drywall sheet for the repair.
There are also different kinds and types of drywall for different applications. There are some situations in homes where the walls are more around moisture and water and there is protection needed against water damage. There is a special “green board” drywall that is more water resistant. These are usually placed in areas where there might be high concentrations of moisture vapor. This doesn’t mean direct water moisture won’t damage it if it is still not protected properly with caulking and a proper coat of appropriate kitchen and bathroom paints aren’t used. When Mississauga and Toronto drywall repair addresses one of these repairs we always recommend using high-quality kitchen or bathroom paints.
