Scuffs and holes on drywall can happen easily with ordinary wear and tear, and most owners and managers of commercial and industrial buildings regard these occurrence as something to expect. Buildings where people work, shop, live, dine, bank, use public facilities or seek health care can experience drywall damage, and it usually occurs in the most obvious places. Some can lead to structural defects or even health issues. At The Columbus Commercial Paint Company, we specialize in drywall repair with professional expertise that minimizes interference with production or interfering with tenants, while restoring walls to pristine conditions.
Creating a Need for Drywall Repair
The most common reason for repairing drywall occurs when owners and managers desire a favorable appearance in a commercial or industrial building. Failure to perform cosmetic maintenance deprives a building of the respect that customers hope to find. Nails that pop out, doorknobs that swing into the drywall and joint tape that separates from the board create unsightly appearances that require correction. Leaks, dents and scuffs pose more serious problems.
When you have water damage to your drywall, it requires immediate attention. Far more than just a cosmetic eyesore, it can produce lasting effects. A leak from the roof, a water line or a water-related appliance can permanently alter the shape of drywall, and it can never resume its previous appearance after it gets wet. Even more serious, health issues can arise when mold starts to grow. Removal presents the only wise option.
The durable and resilient qualities of drywall cannot protect it from scuff marks. Even minor ones can detract from the appearance of a room, and careful movement of furniture or large items can prevent encounters that create them. The damage usually occurs from an accidental brush with a large or heavy object that can create a gouge in the surface that rips off pieces of drywall.
Crisp drywall corners are created from a metal strip that defines and protects it after joint compound and paint make it invisible. Its crisp appearance adds measurably to the image of a well-kept room, but it can accept a dent when an object hits it. A dent can occur from an insignificant force, but replacement of the metal strip provides the only way to resolve the issue.

Preparing for a Repair
Drywall has become so familiar that it may not receive the respect that it deserves. It presents a perfect surface that accepts paint beautifully, but it does much more than that. More important than the aesthetic appearance that it creates in offices, commercial enterprises and industrial facilities, it covers plumbing and electrical installations behind the walls. While many building owners may not think about its sound absorbing qualities, it helps keep things quiet when walls without it allow sound to create annoying distractions.
Work with drywall requires careful preparation that involves measuring, making cut marks and cutting sheets to fit the dimensions of a repair. It requires more tools than most people imagine as well. For our work in Columbus OH, we always provide a drop cloth to prevent getting any mess on the floor. Our professional craftsmen keep a toolbox full of tape measures, razor blades, furring saws, chalk, screw guns, glues, keyhole saws and sanding sponge as basic equipment.

We use our judgment to assess the appropriate weight of drywall compound for each job.
