Wheaton Ceiling Repair, Installation and Additional Services

You might not spend much time looking at or thinking about your ceiling, but your home’s ceiling actually plays a critical role in controlling your indoor comfort. And when it has suffered damage, it actually is very noticeable—even small imperfections or spots of damage on a ceiling are obvious to anyone who happens to glance upward because light highlights the surface of the ceiling in a way that doesn't happen with walls, floors and other surfaces. That's why it makes sense to enhance your comfort, the durability of your home and the overall appearance of the room by investing in ceiling repair in Wheaton, IL.

The experienced team of Wheaton handyman service professionals at Mr. Handyman of Wheaton-Hinsdale offers professional ceiling repair in Wheaton, IL and other nearby areas. Our services are designed to save you money and keep you comfortable.

Ceilings aren't as vulnerable to damage as walls and other surfaces because they're all the way up there, well out of reach. But that doesn't mean they never get damaged. It can be very surprising when you wander into a room, your eyes drift upward, and suddenly, you're staring at a 3-foot ceiling crack that wasn't there last time you checked.

We offer drywall ceiling repair, ceiling crack repair, and more for homeowners and business owners who need ceiling repair in Wheaton, IL. We can repair ceiling damage caused by many reasons, including:  

  • Water Leaks: Water can cause damage to drywall, such as stains, softened patches, stripping paint and buckling. Ceiling water damage is often caused by a roof leak from rainwater pooling on a roof because of issues such as ice dams, missing shingles, obstructed gutters, and then seeping down through the roof deck and affecting multiple building components such as drywall. It can also be caused by leaking plumbing pipes. We can identify the source of your water leaks before taking care of ceiling repair in Wheaton, IL.
  • Structural Issues: If a crack starts on the ceiling and moves down the wall, it can be a symptom of a serious structural issue that can lead to more and more damage down the line. Insufficient drywall mud that was used during the taping process can create structural issues as well. Regular home inspections can give you peace of mind and catch cracks while they are still manageable with ceiling repair in Wheaton, IL.
  • Excessive Moisture: Stains on your ceiling can be caused by excessive dampness or moisture on your roof, but when you see this type of damage in the bathroom ceiling drywall, it's more often than not the result of steam from the shower condensing on surfaces and seeping in because there's not adequate ventilation in the bathroom. Mold and mildew can develop, leading to health problems for your family. A plumbing problem can cause all kinds of damage to your ceiling. Allow our home improvement professionals to replace soggy drywall before things get even worse. Ensure you have proper ventilation, and contact us for Wheaton ceiling repair services.
  • Home Age: Every house experiences wear and tear over the years. It's not all that uncommon for a crack in the ceiling to be formed by the building shifting and settling over time, and it doesn't necessarily indicate a structural issue if it's a narrow crack that doesn't widen, but it should still be handled sooner rather than later with ceiling repair in Wheaton, IL. Catching those cracks early is critical to prevent future damage. Our drywall repair team fixes ceiling cracks to keep your home looking great while avoiding future hazards.

Regardless of what caused the problem in the first place, you can count on our reliable handyman experts to deliver safe, effective ceiling repair in Wheaton, IL. We have seen and fixed just about every issue you can imagine, and we can do the same for your ceiling. We'll take care of the entire process of your Wheaton ceiling repair project from start to finish.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ceiling Repair in Wheaton, IL

Is It Better to Get Wheaton Ceiling Repair Service or Just Replace the Whole Ceiling?

If you're dealing with a problem like a fairly large water stain on your ceiling, it makes sense to ask this question—after all, there are some components of a building, like flooring, that are often better off replaced rather than repaired. But because of the nature of drywall and how it is installed and repaired, it's almost always better to deal with problems by choosing ceiling repair in Wheaton, IL.

Repairing drywall, especially for a larger spot of damage more than a few inches in diameter, involves cutting around the damaged area and installing a new piece of drywall in the gap, then smoothing over the seam with joint tape and drywall compound to create a continuous, even surface. As a result, there's no point in replacing drywall that is still in great condition and hasn't suffered any damage. You would typically only need to replace the entire ceiling and the walls in a situation where the whole room suffered extensive damage, such as from a fire, and in that case, you will likely need to do a lot more than just Wheaton ceiling repair.

Do You Provide Lighting and Ceiling Fan Installation Services?

Ceiling fans are a great way to reduce air conditioning costs while keeping air circulating throughout the room. Our skilled professionals can install, replace, or remove a ceiling fan from your home. Your comfort and satisfaction are guaranteed. We can also replace an old ceiling fan with your preferred light fixture. Our experts are happy to help you plan and complete your ceiling fan project.

Lighting can make or break any room in your home. While the light fixture is important for aesthetic reasons, the brightness of the light is equally important. We do it all, from simple to elegant light fixtures. Allow us to remove, repair, or install any type of lighting fixture, including:

  • Track lighting
  • Architectural lighting
  • Recessed lighting
  • Pendant lighting
  • Chandelier lighting

How Do You Avoid Making a Mess When Doing Wheaton Ceiling Repairs?

To be perfectly honest, you don't. If we only need to repair a small hairline crack or a chip, it won't be all that messy. But if it's necessary to cut into and patch drywall, there's no doubt that there's going to be plenty of gypsum dust flying around. That's why it's necessary to take precautions beforehand, such as laying down plastic sheeting to protect carpets, heavy furniture and other items. It's also a good idea to remove valuable or delicate items from the room prior to ceiling repair in Wheaton, IL. That being said, you don't have to worry about cleaning up all that drywall mess yourself. Our team is focused on customer satisfaction, and that includes taking care to finish the entire process from beginning to end—including cleaning up after ourselves before we leave.
