Drywall and plaster repair

Standard plaster and drywall repair procedure:

  • Remove all furniture (if possible),
  • Cover floors with painters drop cloths and furniture with plastic,
  • Remove damaged  drywall, plaster,
  • Support  the rest of drywall or plaster with board adhesive, screws, studs,
  • Seal damaged areas with oil-based primer,
  • Install insulation (if required),
  • Install drywall support: for small damages – stiff mesh, for bigger damages – wooden studs.
  • Install drywall,
  • In some cases we install metal mesh and apply plaster compound,
  • Tape, patch, sand and prime with PVA primer,
  • Paint the ceiling with flat or semi-gloss  (Bathroom) paint.
  • Clean the job site.
  • Get paid :)

Usually the whole process takes one day.
