San Diego Drywall Water Damage

Some of the most difficult and time consuming repairs can come from water damage.  Drywall can soak up water like a sponge and what appears to be a 2’ x 3’ water damaged area may in fact be a 6’ x 6’ area.  When drywall is soaked, the water damaged drywall must be cut out.

A common source of drywall water damage occurs in condos or high-rise buildings when a unit above has water issues causing water damage to the unit below.  The water will seep or spray down through the floors and affect the ceiling of the lower unit.  When this type of water damage occurs, we must often demo and replace the entire ceiling and sometimes the walls.

In older buildings the drywall water damage repair may be more complicated. Most older buildings have plaster walls and plaster repairs are more difficult because of the plaster thickness. The plaster repair process is similar to the drywall repair process.

Cut out water damaged plaster which is usually 3/4" to 1-1/2" thick. Then, using drywall, proceed with the drywall repair by shimming
the area with 1/4",1/2" or 5/8" drywall. Sometimes we can install 1/4" drywall sheets over the entire area for a brand new ceiling or wall.

Slab leaks and re-piping jobs are another common drywall repair, sometimes involving one or two drywall patches or as many as 30 or more different patches throughout the entire house.
