Repairing Drywall

Repairs to drywall are an important first step to any interior painting.

Before beginning to paint, we ensure all nail pops are filled, any bumps, cracks or imperfections on the drywall are sanded to a smooth finish.

We apply drywall compound or plaster, sand it down to a smooth finish.  It is part of our complete interior painting services in Ottawa.

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.  We take all the necessary steps to prepare drywall before painting.

Drywall in Ottawa Homes

Drywall is used in the interior of homes during the construction process and is installed after the framing work to complete the house.

It provides a barrier between the exterior walls, the insulation and gives a perfect smooth look to the interior walls where paint can then provide the completed look and finish.

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.
