Drywall Stress Crack Repairs
Do you have unsightly cracks in your drywall or textured ceilings? This is a common issue with walls and ceilings and they can be caused by a number of different reasons. Stress cracks in drywall are usually found around corners, or where doors or windows have been installed. They are also commonly found where two pieces of drywall butt together and you’ll see long horizontal or vertical cracks in a straight line along the seam.
DRR Drywall Repair is a drywall repair company based out of Ocala, Florida and serving the surrounding counties. We specialize in repairing cracks in drywall or plaster cracks in walls and ceilings. Whether it’s an actual stress crack caused by building settling or it’s a poorly taped crack along a seam we’ll be able to repair the damaged area and retexture it so that it looks like there was never a problem.
What Causes Drywall Or Ceiling Cracks?
The severity of the cracks in your ceiling or drywall can vary from a minor issue such as a poor or rushed finishing job to a serious structural problem and we’d need to inspect the cracks in your drywall or ceiling to really know for sure what might be causing the problem. Below are some of the most common issues we see that can cause these cracks to develop.
- Storm damage from wind causing stress on walls and ceilings
- Settling of the building foundation or movement of soil
- Expansion and contraction due to hot or cool weather
- Poor quality workmanship at drywall joints and corners
- Water damage caused by a number of reasons
Will Drywall Crack Repairs Be Permanent?
If the cracks in your drywall were caused by poor workmanship then in most cases the repair is going to be a permanent repair for the issue. If the cracks in your drywall or ceiling are related to structure issues with your home or building then if they are not addresses it’s quite likely the cracks are going to come back eventually.
When we come to your home to provide you with an estimate we can do some preliminary inspection to determine what the issue might be. If your home or building has structural damage this is NOT something we can repair for you but we can refer you to companies that we trust who will be able to help.
