drywall repair orlando before you paintAny lived-in home is going to acquire a few dents and dings over the years. Whether they come from rowdy siblings roughhousing in the afternoon or from a furniture mishap during your move-in, your drywall is sure to see its fair share of damage. But when it comes time to repaint your walls or try out a new color, many homeowners forget to patch up these injuries before the roller hits the paint.

The drywall repair experts at New Ceilings want to remind you that drywall repair is an important first step before any paint job, interior or exterior, large or small. Here are just a  few reasons why:

 

  • No matter how durable it is, paint won’t stretch across a crack or a hole. Those dents and dings you find before applying your new color will still be there after the paint dries. Simply put, if you hate looking at them now, painting over them won’t fix the issue. You need to give your paint something to adhere to.
  • Your new paint won’t last as long as it should. This especially applies to exterior painting. Before you even think about painting, you need to scrape off any old, damaged paint and sand down the rough patches. Leaving damage as-is on your walls means that your new paint won’t lay the way you want it to, and there’s a good chance it won’t dry properly, either.
  • You might be covering up a serious issue. If you’re repainting your home to cover up some discoloration, there’s a chance you’re covering up water damage or other issues behind your walls. When you pay attention to them, your walls will speak volumes about their condition. Simply covering the issue will not make it go away – in fact, it will make it worse, with time.

 

As you can see, beautiful walls go much deeper than a few coats of paint. To ensure you achieve professional quality paint job inside or out, you need smooth, structurally sound walls as a base.
