FACTORS THAT CAN DAMAGE OR DETERIORATE DRYWALL STRUCTURES

A drywall system is a method of dry construction that involves using gypsum or fiber cement boards and attaching them to wooden or galvanized steel structures. It is a fast, functional, and cost-effective way of building and can be used for various purposes and constructions. It can be used to create walls that divide interior spaces, construct structures, and build ceilings.

As it is a widely used material by construction companies in Iowa and throughout the United States, we want to inform you about some factors or practices that can cause serious damage to drywall. Our goal is to help you avoid them and keep your panels in optimal condition.


• Water damage


Water is the main factor that can damage your drywall panel as this material is not moisture-resistant. If you have identified any water leakage affecting your drywall structure or that may affect it in the future, the first step is to resolve the problem causing the leakage to prevent further damage. After addressing the main issue, you can proceed with the necessary repairs for your drywall. These repairs should not only be done for aesthetic reasons but also for the safety and health of individuals. Excessive moisture weakens the panel and can cause it to break or promote mold growth. Always remember the importance of keeping your drywall away from water.

• Furniture scratches


At Parceros Construction LLC, we always recommend our clients to keep their furniture at a reasonable distance from their drywall walls to avoid scratches that can cause wear marks on the panel. Avoid frequently moving large items such as appliances, sofas, and beds, and avoid placing them too close to the drywall. We also advise caution with items installed on the panel, such as bathroom fixtures, as accidentally hitting them can result in a piece of the board being torn off and creating a hole.

• Dented corner bead


The wear and tear on the L-shaped metal molding used to cover the corners of drywall can cause significant damage, denting the corner bead. These damages can also be caused by furniture scratches or other everyday items, such as vacuum cleaners.

• Damage from improperly installed drywall panels


Improperly installed drywall panels or the natural settling of constructions can cause cracks that, in turn, can lead to more serious damage to the house's foundations. These cracks usually form on ceilings, where cases of moisture are more frequent. Our recommendation is to inspect the most exposed areas of your ceiling or areas where drywall is likely to be exposed to moisture to prevent more difficult-to-resolve problems.

• Damage from termites


There are various types of damage to drywall panels that are caused by termites. If your drywall panel has small holes, bubbling paint, or produces a hollow sound when you tap the wall, it is possible that your drywall has been damaged by these insects. We recommend inspecting your home frequently and implementing pest control measures if you have signs of insect presence in your home.
