Repairing Drywall

Before beginning to paint, we ensure that all nail pops are filled, any bumps, cracks or imperfections on the drywall are sanded to a smooth finish.  Preparing drywall before painting  ensures you get a smooth paint finish.

As part of our interior painting services in Ottawa  we apply drywall compound or plaster and sand it down to a smooth finish. We then paint a primer to ensure best coverage and adhesion of the final paint colour that will be painted on the walls or ceilings.

Patching Repairs To Drywall

Patching repairs to drywall are necessary for many reasons.  Sometimes they can be as simple as filling in holes from nail pops or holes left behind from pre hung art work or other dents created by normal everyday living.

Damage to the ceilings or walls from a water leak  that leaves behind water stains will create paint problems  such as cracking, flaking or bubbles .

It provides a barrier between the exterior walls, the insulation and gives a perfect smooth look to the interior walls.

Drywall replaced the old method of layering of thin wood panels horizontally and applying minimum 3 coats of plaster.  It is also referred to as plasterboard, wallboard, gypsum board, Sheetrock, Gyproc and plasterboard.   

If you live in older neighborhoods in Ottawa such as Little Italy, Preston Street, Downtown, Centretown or the In The Glebe area these homes were built before the 1950’s with the old plastering method that was used in the construction of the house.

Wood Slats and 3 layers of plaster was used in the construction of homes before the 1950’s. This was later replaced by drywall sheets which are less expensive, easier and faster to install and take less time to install.

After the 1950’s  drywall sheets started being used in all construction because it was easier, took less time and was a less expensive process.
