Drywall Water Damage, Repair & Replacement in Houston & Surrounding Areas

When drywall is exposed to flooding, it absorbs the water quickly and swells up. Rapidly expanding can result in irreversible damage if not dried promptly - a situation that needs replacing immediately! There is a huge concern with wet drywall that can lead to the growth of mold and mildew, which in turn bring about health issues.

Drywall is a common building material that can be found in both residential and commercial construction. It's also known by other names, such as sheetrock or wallboard among others.

Visual Inspection

Visual Inspection

The signs of water damage in your home are often subtle and hard to detect. This could be because drywall, which is used as an internal wall, tends to bulg when absorbing moisture. The damage from a leak in the ceiling may not be visible, but it can cause major problems. A drip or sag on your home's walls mean there is likely water seeping through and onto surfaces below; if you see anything like this then immediate attention must be paid so that these issues don't worsen over time resulting into more extensive damages such as mold growths due to high humidity levels indoors.

Repair & Replacement

Repairing drywall is only possible in the early stages of water damage. Quickly drying out this material and using fans will speed up the process and prevent mold growth from occurring while you are drying out the affected area!

Water Damage Restoration

Excess moisture in your house can cause a number of problems, including hidden damage that might be difficult to identify until it is too late. In this case, replacement rather than repair may be necessary.

Professional restoration experts from Eldridge Restoration will come and take care of replacing any boards affected by mold growth while disinfecting everything around them so no mold spores get introduced into other parts of house.

Some handy people who are looking to save money may decide that they can replace the damaged sheetrock themselves. However, this becomes a health hazard and should not be attempted by anyone other than professionals

Contact Eldridge Restoration for immediate drywall damage repair or replacement. We are conveniently serving homes in and around Houston.

Replacement Tips

Replacement Tips
  • Building Codes for Drywall Requirements - Before beginning a restoration project, it is advisable to check these rules.
  • Drywall Sheets have Various Sizes & Categories - ex: Green boards are used in kitchens and bathrooms as they are water resistant.
  • Use Utility Knife to Remove Damaged Drywall - Use even lines and make sure the shape is easy to match, such as a square or rectangle.
  • Prior to Drywall Repair - Repair the cause of the water damage, dry the area thoroughly and clean it from any dust and dirt.
  • Once the Affected Area is Removed - Investigate for any additional damage or mold behind the affected area. If insulation has absorbed water, it needs to be replaced.
  • When Replacing the Drywall - Measure and cut to fit the hole. The new drywall then needs to be fitted in place. It may be necessary to use a plywood board to support and anchor the drywall.
  • Secure the Drywall - With tape all around the edges.
  • Several Coats of Mud, or Plaster Applied to the Area - Smooth out each application and wait until it dries before applying the next one.
  • Sanding the Finished Area - Necessary to smooth any rough edges or imperfections.
  • The Final Step is Painting the Repaired Area - Match the color on the surrounding wall.
