Drywall Ceiling Repair: What to Do When There's Damage

Posted by First Quality Roofing & Insulation on Jan 8, 2024 8:26:06 AM

Drywall offers an attractive, economical way to finish interior walls and ceilings, but it can be vulnerable to damage from impacts, water leaks, and roof failures. If your ceiling is cracked, sagging, or the paint has started to peel, it is likely that the drywall itself has been damaged. Although some minor damage can be repaired with a thin coating of joint compound and paint, in most cases, it is best to call a professional for drywall ceiling repair when the damage is more severe.

Types of Drywall Damage 

The difficulty and the cost of a drywall ceiling repair will depend heavily on the type of damage. Some of the most common drywall issues include:

  • Dents or divots – Usually caused by impacts, small dents or divots can often be repaired easily with joint compound, but larger craters typically need to be patched.
  • Cracks – Cracks can be caused either by impacts or by settling of the home’s structure. Some cracks can be filled with joint compound, but severe cracks should be repaired by an expert, especially since they can indicate deeper problems with the home’s structure, such as foundation damage.
  • Holes – Whether a hole is caused by an impact, home repairs, or removal of an item like a light fixture, you should call a professional drywall ceiling repair service to ensure that the hole is patched correctly.
  • Peeling paint – When paint starts peeling from the drywall, it can indicate a problem with the paint, defects in the drywall, or a water leak somewhere in the home. If there is no indication of moisture or stains, peeling paint can often be scraped and repainted.
  • Stains or sagging – Large dark spots, stains, or sagging drywall on the ceiling often indicate a major roof leak or plumbing leak. Once the leak is addressed by a qualified roofing company or plumbing company, the drywall should be inspected by a professional to determine the extent of the damage and the necessary repairs. This is especially important if mold has started to grow, as some types can cause irritation, inflame allergies, or even be toxic.

If you or a family member are handy, minor damage like hairline cracks, small divots, or peeling paint on the ceiling can often be handled yourself. But for more extensive drywall ceiling repairs, you should call a professional. That ensures the repair is safe and that it will last.
