From damaged drywall to bulging bricks, StayDry has you covered.
We respect DIY basement repair, but sometimes a professional is needed. The problem is that many materials used in modern homes, like drywall for example, simply start to dissolve if they are exposed to water. Insulation and framing wood can be damaged, too.
Do it yourself:
- If it’s human-caused damage, like roughhousing gone wrong, go to a hardware store and get self-adhesive mesh and and a surface sealant. Once installed, you can repaint the area, but it may always stand out a little.
- Scrapes and scuffs can be sanded and repainted. Many people swear by putty from auto repair shops to fix smaller dents or holes.
Consult a professional:
- Water damage from a source that you can’t easily find or fix, even if it’s small.
- Damage in a dangerous place, like the roof or electrical wiring.
- If you see minor changes in interior or exterior brick walls. Generally, you should leave brick walls alone unless you have previous masonry experience.
Anticipate a Professional Wall Rebuild:
- If floodwater covered a significant portion of the room, especially for extended periods of time.
- Do not attempt to repair or brace bulging foundation walls unless you are trained.
- If you notice problems in seemingly unrelated parts of the house, like seeing cracks above your exterior windows.
