Over time, the cement compound may start to peel, weakening the underneath drywall. Drywall can also crack or break, causing holes in your wall. If you have a hole in your drywall created by nails or even from an impact, the hole could cause the entire drywall panel to be weakened. Unrepaired damage increases the chances that the damage spreads and affects even more of the drywall. When it’s time for drywall repair, you don’t need to do it quickly so that you don’t have to install an entirely new panel. In order to repair drywall, patches are used to quickly cover and repair the damaged area, which are then filled in with tape and mud compound so that there is no visible trace of damage.
Drywall can also be damaged by water, which requires repair quickly. Fixing water damaged drywall is necessary not only because it looks bad, but because the drywall will begin to soften due to it being weakened by the water. Drywall that is damaged can be repaired by removing the affected area, and matching a new piece of drywall to fit the hole. Beware, once water has damaged the drywall, the possibility of mold also increases, so a timely repair is essential.
