Oops, young Johnny was playing hockey indoors and shot a puck into the wall of yoToronto house painters, interior painting, exterior painting, drywall repairur Toronto home, and has left you with a hole in your drywall!

You hosted a Super Bowl 2017 party with some die-hard Atlanta Falcons fans, and the brunt of their frustrations ended up on a 1’x1′ section of wall

What are you going to do?  Do you have to hire two different contractors; a handyman to patch the hole and a painter to paint the wall after the patch?

Actually, CAM Painters can fix that hole in your drywall and then paint your whole house from top to bottom after!  Or we can just repaint the wall that had the hole in it.

If you want your whole house drywalled your better to get a specialist in, but it’s hard to get a drywall contractor in for one patch.  My rule of thumb is that if the repair is less than the size of a sheet of drywall you’re far better off hiring one contractor to do both patch and paint, rather than deal with two contractors.Toronto house painter, interior painting, exterior painting, drywall repair

What’s our process for drywall repairs?

First order of business, we want to keep dust to a minimum.  Drywall patching requires sanding patching compound around the edge of the repairs.  There are a few ways we use to minimize dust:

  • We drape plastic on door openings to minimize dust travelling from one room to another.
  • We apply our patching compound as smooth as possible.  If the patching compound lumpy more sanding needs to be done than if the compound is smooth to start with.
  • We use sanders that hook up to HEPA filter vacuums, so that less dust gets into the atmosphere in the first place.

We also ensure that the repaired area is reinforced to prevent future damage.  This involves putting wood Toronto house painter, interior painting, exterior painting, drywall repairstrapping behind the repair for extra support if necessary.
