It happens. Moving a bookcase leaves a large unsightly hole in your drywall. Don’t settle for a repair that leaves very visible patchwork. We take pride in drywall patching that ends up looking like nothing hit the wall at all.
When you call us out to your home, we will:
- Prepare the damaged area for repair
- Patch or replace the missing plaster or drywall
- Ensure the repair is smooth and seamless
- Paint over the repair
We can also replace entire panels of drywall when it becomes necessary.
Do you live in a historic home?
Restoring plaster walls in a historic home calls for the craftsmanship of a master to keep from damaging the value of your home. Unlike many drywall contractors who will convince you to remove the old plaster and trade it for a nice new, modern drywall. Yes, it may look modern, but it totally destroys your home’s historic character and value. While this is sometimes necessary when the plaster is badly damaged, it can be saved in many cases.
After all, if you’d wanted a modern home, you probably would have moved into a new home. We are in lockstep with National Park briefs on how to preserve historic homes. They strongly recommend retaining and repairing plaster wherever possible. They go on to note that it’s stronger and more durable than modern drywall, that it resists fire, and that it offers a quieter home since it’s a good buffer against sound.
Even those who are willing to try to keep the plaster, often apply it incorrectly, causing structural problems, improper curing, or moisture issues. You’ll never know until you start seeing the cracks, or evidence of water damage.
We’ve helped restore dozens of historic homes across the Boston area and know how to treat them, both inside and out.
It doesn’t matter whether your home is old or new: we’re committed to choosing the right tools and techniques for the job, and getting it done right the first time.
