“When removing the damaged section, locate the stud or joists, using the cut-lines as guide. A new drywall is then fitted and the seams are then filled with a joint compound, and further concealed with a drywall tape. The wall is sanded before repainting. Professional companies, such as CertaPro Painters of Waterloo, ON, that also serves Cambridge, offer drywall services and painting, employing special methods to provide longer-lasting results.
Nevertheless, no amount of scrubbing and patching can take serious water damage off your wall. Unaddressed leaks will continue to pool in your drywall’s gypsum and bleed through every new coating you apply. It is therefore advisable to fix the source of the leak first, before having your damaged drywall replaced or restored.”
