Drywall Repair and Installation Services in Santa Fe, NM Area
Drywall installation and repair is available to help improve the condition of your indoor walls, maintain their appearance and integrity if they have become damaged, as well as increase the aesthetic of your interior walls. Drywall is easy to paint, install, and requires little to no maintenance over time. It is also relatively inexpensive, meaning that you won’t have to spend a fortune for interior wall solutions either.
Drywall installation is a quick process that doesn’t require many tools but it does require manpower. This is because, one must hoist the heavy drywall sheets into the frames and secure them in place. Once this is completed, the edges of the drywall can be sealed and taped, therefore reducing the appearance of the creases between drywall panels or boards. Drywall installation also requires measuring, removing, and lifting larger items which – for your own safety – should be done by a team of professionals to avoid injury.
Drywall repairs are very easy to complete as they typically only require using a spackle solution to fill the cracks and holes that have appeared in the drywall. If, for example, you hung a picture on a drywall and no longer want the nail holes in the wall, we would use a drywall filling paste, known as spackle, to fill the hole, crack, or scratch. While drywall can become damaged with blunt force, it doesn’t need to stay damaged or cost a lot to repair. Spackle helps provide a solution to repairing and evening out your drywall so that you don’t find yourself needing a brand new drywall altogether and it can also prolong your drywall interiors as a whole for ongoing use.
The main use for interior drywall is to fill and cover the frames of walls and ceilings. Drywall serves as a wall solution that’s sturdy, firm, and durable for interior use. Drywall is composed of a dense, flat composite that lacks a lot of texture which makes it easier to paint or put vinyl and wallpaper on. If you’re looking for a great base material to install into your home and later customize with colorful designs or adhesives, then we highly recommend drywall for such a project. Drywall, once installed, doesn’t require much maintenance aside from minor repairs.
Once your drywall has been installed and taped, you can then begin to paint it. We recommend having your drywall panels taped before painting to avoid the crevices accumulating paint or affecting an even layer of paint. For drywall, most interior paints can be used, whether they’re matte, semi-gloss, or satin. If you need assistance with choosing the right paint or primer for your drywall, we can recommend a few that we trust for all of our similar projects. To ensure that your drywall has lasting results, we recommend adding a few layers of easy-to-clean paint that doesn’t show wear and tear over time, fading, or isn’t susceptible to easy staining.
