The Benefits of Hiring a Drywall Repairman in Virginia

Drywall repair services being rendered for residential home

Drywall is one of the most easily damaged surfaces in most modern buildings. That gypsum plasterboard has become more popular than any other building material in Fairfax County or Loudoun County because of the convenience it offers over other wall materials like plaster — but that convenience comes at a cost.

Gypsum wallboard is a cheaper material option for interiors that's also lighter than wood and easier to install than plaster. It even adds fire resistance to homes since the gypsum core is non-combustible. All those benefits have helped speed up construction projects and development in Northern Virginia, with one major downside: the potential for wall punctures and other damage.

Drywall damage is one of the most common issues that both homeowners and commercial space owners are forced to deal with. Gypsum wall materials are easily damaged — by everything from moisture to movers. It's possible for property owners in Northern Virginia to deal with that damage themselves, but drywall repair projects are messy, time-consuming, and require superior skills to avoid additional costs.

Many people prefer the convenience and satisfaction of professional drywall repair services when it comes to repairing their walls. The team of service professionals at Mr. Handyman of Fairfax and Eastern Loudoun Counties includes more than one expert drywall repairman with years of experience and exceptional skills. If your walls are damaged, you can benefit from the services of a professional, local repairman.

Complete Clean-Up

The convenience of a professional repairman can't be understated, and clean-up is the most significant step where a service professional saves you time, effort, and money. Did you know that most household vacuums can't actually pick up sanding dust from finished drywall projects? They just blow it into the air instead.

Repairing walls with joint compounds requires sanding them to produce a smooth surface that's ready for painting. Unfortunately, that process creates a significant mess, along with all the other steps of any type of drywall repair. An experienced, local repairman will always work in a way that prevents messy situations from becoming a problem — and they always clean up after themselves too. You won't have to worry about harmful dust in your air, or in your lungs.

Identify Other Issues

If a careless mover left a hole in your wall, then you won't have to worry about where the damage came from — yet not all types of drywall damage have easily identifiable causes. Cracks, stains, and other issues that seem to come from nowhere and return after your repairman leaves are wall issues with subtler sources. Unless you fix the underlying issue, that type of problem will keep coming back. A professional repairman will help you figure out what's causing your problem, so you can get help to stop it permanently.

Common Causes:

  • Seasonal changes in temperature & humidity
  • Structural issues
  • Settling foundations
  • Frame deterioration — from wood rot or insects
  • And, water damage

Take Advantage of Other Services

The best part about hiring a full-service repairman is that they complete every step of the project — and then some! After your professional drywall repair is completed, a repairman from our team can also repaint your wall during the same visit. They'll even rehang pictures and other wall art, so your walls look exactly like they did before the damage appeared — if not better!

Quality wall repairs aren't the only thing you can get done either. You can take advantage of your repairman for everything else on your to-do list, from gutter cleaning to dryer vent cleaning. The list of quality home improvement projects and maintenance solutions that we handle with our local services is almost endless — and you can do it all with just one call!

Exceptional, Guaranteed Results

Whether you have minor water damage or huge wall holes, drywall repair completed by a professional repairman will exceed the results that any amateur will provide. The practical experience and expertise of a repairman make repairs more efficient, which means they'll take much less time out of your day.

If you take advantage of professional wall services, you also don't have to worry about renting or purchasing tools you don't own just to finish a single job. Those savings on tools, as well as the efficient service of a pro, are just one of the many ways that a drywall repairman comes to the rescue in Fairfax County and Loudoun County.

Plus, workmanship from a professional repairman comes with a guarantee that protects you from poor, unsatisfying repairs. If it's not done right, we'll make it right. The full insurance coverage of a drywall repairman also protects you from accidental damage or injury — amateur accidents come at a greater cost.

When Should You Call a Professional Drywall Repairman?

Obviously, any damage that you don't have the tools, expertise, or time to fix yourself is the number-one reason to contact your local drywall repair experts. Don't delay on fixing wall issues. Letting damage go unaddressed may lead to more serious problems in the future.

In addition to all the common types of damage, you can also take advantage of a professional repairman for improvement services. If you have a basement remodeling project or any other improvement idea, don't hesitate to call your local, reliable handyman — we can even help in commercial buildings!
