Typically, sheetrock in your Lynnwood home should last anywhere from 50 to 70 years, but the actual longevity depends on several factors, such as environment, damage, and use. For instance, a sheetrock ceiling in a smoking room could be yellow and deteriorate quicker than one in a non-smoking room. Or the sheetrock next to furniture, like a bed or couch, could get knocks and damage from years of use, quicker than walls without furniture against them. Luckily, there’s hope in reparations from One Call Home Repair. We specialize in sheetrock repairs for walls and ceilings, so you can rest assured that your home can look as good as new if your sheetrock has seen chips, cracks, smashes, or weak spots.
In some cases, sheetrock can be a DIY repair, but it requires extensive research. To One Call Home Repair, it’s better to hire a contractor for sheetrock repairs because our professionals are already well-versed, well-equipped, and knowledgeable in every way they can be about the project at hand. You’ll spend less money in the long run by hiring a contractor than you would buying the materials and attempting to fix your sheetrock walls and ceilings on your own.
