Fixing Water Damaged Drywall

Water damage is never a fun thing to handle, and it might happen to anyone. Whether it happens as a result of condensation from your air conditioning system, because of a flood, or because of a leak in your roof, fixing a water damaged drywall is more than a hassle. The purpose of the roof and walls in your home is to remain solid and sturdy, and your goal right now is to restore the water damaged area, in order for them to fulfill that purpose. The process might take some time and messy work, but with much care and attention, you will be able to make the damage invisible within a short period of time.

If not fixed quickly, water damage can lead to more serious issues such as mold. If your drywall starts to develop mold, it will make restoring them that much more complicated. Mold can be extremely dangerous to your home’s residents and pets, and you should take this fact into consideration when dealing with water damage.

Steps to Repairing the Water Damaged Drywall

The first step to fixing water damage is to remove the damaged areas. Start by cutting out a square or rectangle shape around the damaged area. This will indeed increase the size of the area that would require repair, but it will make it easier to cut. This will also assist you when the mudding and taping phase of the work will take place, and it will make the repaired part blend easily with the rest of the wall.

Use a drywall saw to cut out the parts that you need to remove, and be very careful if you cut through an area with wires and plumbing tubes. Cut slowly and make sure you don’t hit anything.

After you remove all the damaged parts of the drywall, measure the size of the area that needs to be renewed and cut a new sheet of drywall according to the measurements. The next step is to place the new drywall sheet in its place and secure it to its position.
