If you are working on a renovation project and encounter water-damaged drywall, you will need to get the damage repaired before you can proceed. Water damage tends to lead to worse issues over time if it goes unaddressed, so you’ll need to deal with this problem before you finish the project and let your clients move back into their home.
Fortunately, our team at Ault Restoration specializes in water damage repair, and you can turn to us for help in dealing with your drywall issue. In this article, we’ll provide an overview of how our drywall water damage repair process works so you have a better idea of what to expect.
- Identify and Fix the Leak – In most cases, drywall water damage is caused by leaky pipes, and that problem will need to be addressed first. Our team will determine where the leak is coming from and address the issue to prevent more water damage from occurring in the future.
- Remove Damaged Drywall – The next step in drywall water damage repair is to remove the affected drywall. This step is necessary because water damage compromises the structural integrity of the drywall itself, leaving it weak and crumbly. Our team will remove the damaged drywall and clean up all the debris.
- Install New Drywall – The last step in our drywall water damage repair process is to replace the damaged material with new drywall. We will cut and install new drywall in the place where the old drywall was removed, creating a sturdy new wall.
