Brevard County Water Damage Drywall Repair

On this Brevard County water damage repair project video, I show you the whole process of doing a water damage drywall repair from start to finish. When
the plumbing leak happened the homeowners cut out the area of drywall that had been damaged by
the water. After they did that they realized that it might be a little bit bigger
project than they really could handle.


In My Youtube video I’ll show you how I do the drywall finishing on this water damage drywall repair from start to finish. There is also a link within in the video of me applying a orange peel texture to this same repair.

1) The first thing I needed to do was square up the drywall because when they cut it out it was kind of crooked and just passed a couple studs.

2) Next, I added a couple of one by four furring strips to be able to attach the new drywall too.

3) I then added two pieces of 1/2″ drywall to the repair areas.

Drywall tip: when doing these types of wall
repairs always add a screw into the existing drywall that was not cut out to
secure it so it will not crack overtime

4) I added fiberglass mesh drywall tape to all of the seams except the one corner where I like to use paper tape to get a nice crisp defined corner.

Drywall tip: when using fiberglass mesh drywall tape always use a setting type of joint compound this means it comes in a powder form and is much stronger than the all-purpose joint compound that comes in a 5 gallon bucket.

5) Mix The setting type of joint compound and apply it with a 6 to 12 inch drywall taping knife trying to keep all edges smooth and not raised.

6) Scrape any high or raised areas on the drywall mud that you just applied using a 6 inch drywall taping knife.

7) apply the second coat with a 12 inch taping knife depending on how soon you want this to be ready to texture and paint you can use the setting type compound or if you’re not in a hurry just use a all-purpose joint compound.

8) apply the third coat you really shouldn’t have to put much mud on just a thin layer of all-purpose joint compound.

Drywall tip: I like to use the all-purpose over the setting type compound for the final finish coat because it sends a lot easier than the setting type joint compound.

9) Using hand sander or sanding sponge Sand down any edges or bumps or humps on your mud work. And touch up any areas that look like they might just need a little bit of mud.

10) Next, I applied the orange peel texture to the repair walls and feathered it into the existing texture which makes it blend and not stand out like a repair any longer.

11) Lastly, prime the repaired areas with your favorite type of primer and then paint two coats and you’re done!

Painter tip: I like to use a primer called Zinzer 1231 prime in these
types of repairs not only is it a great drywall primer, it also has a stain blocker in it
just in case any water stains that might show up from when the plumbing leak originally occurred. That’s my primer recommendation.

Good luck on your water damage drywall repair project!

Water damage drywall repair after washers water hose bursts in Merritt Island

On this Merritt Island water damage drywall repair project I was contacted by the homeowner after their washer water line had leaked in the laundry room. Damaging one wall directly behind the washer and dryer.

Water damaged wall

Since this leak happened in the middle of the night a 24 hour water restoration emergency service company had already come out to remove all of the water damage drywall, insulation and flooring. They also dried out all of the wood framing and tile flooring. Luckily this water was a cleaned up before any mold could start to grow.

The damage at this home could’ve been so much worse. I’ve seen water lines to washers break with no one home and the
whole house get flooded. These types of plumbing disasters can result in thousands of dollars worth of damage and plenty of frustrations to go along with it!

After the plumber did the necessary repairs to the washers hoses the homeowners also decided since all of the plumbing was exposed. that it was a good time to do some preventive maintenance and replace some of the aging water valves and connections which are usually a pain to get to since they’re behind the drywall in the laundry room.

After arriving at this Merritt Island home to repair the water damaged drywall. I first had to remove all of the drywall screws from the wood framing that were left behind from the water restoration company before I could reinstall new insulation and 1/2″ drywall to the water damaged area.

Water damage drywall repair and orange peel texture match

This water damage drywall repair and texture matching project is in the Cloisters subdivision of Indialantic, Fl.

We were contacted by a past customer to do a drywall repair on the already cut out and dried out the water damaged walls in two of the guest bedrooms of their home. Water had got the drywall wet on the one exterior wall in each of the two guest bedrooms of this four bedroom home here in Brevard County.

Once we arrived the drywall had already been cutout up to the window sill around 20″ in one bedroom and at 16″ on the other bedrooms wall. The base board and carpet had been removed by the water restoration company when the plumbing leak had first occurred.

So, all we had to do to get this drywall repair party started, was to prep the floors and cover personal items with plastic. Next, I used the paper masking machine to cover the window sills and bi-fold doors ect… so that nothing would get on them while doing the drywall repair and re texturing of the affected water damaged areas.

  • After resecuring the drywall (with screws) where it had been cutout
  • We installed 1/2″ drywall at all of the cutout areas
  • Applied self adhesive fiberglass mesh tape at all drywall repair seams
  • Next,I applied three coats of 20 minute compound for maximum joint strength
  • Sprayed orange peel texture to match existing texture
  • Lasty, I primed and painted the wall repairs using a 3/4″ roller nap on my roller
Water damage from a plumbing leak

Noitice that the drywall was kept up off of the concrete floor by at 1/2″ kept the drywall from getting wet at all on this wall.

Because of a slight slant of the foundation the water from the leak went straight over to the east wall of the bedrooms and the water wicked up into the bottom section of the drywall. Luckily the leak was caught in time so that only a minimum part of one wall was all that needed to be removed.

Roof leak caused major water damage to this ceiling in Suntree, Fl

With all of the rain we’ve been getting here in Brevard County this Summer, it’s no doubt that there are many homes that have had a roof leak. Which leads to potential water damage on ceilings and walls. What’s worse is if the roof leak continues, all of the moisture can lead to wood rot and is the perfect food source termites in any wood framing, furring strips, roof trusses and roof decking.

Even if you have a block home, wood is most likely part of your roofing system and possibly in your wall framing in order to be able to attach the drywall to a block wall when your home was built.

Roof Leak?

The best piece of advice I can give you is when looking for a contractor to repair your roof, ceiling or drywall be sure to hire a licensed contractor to get the best results!

Damage assessment

Damage assessment of ceiling due to roof leak

This blog post is about a water damaged pool patio ceiling caused by a roof leak in the suntree area of Melbourne, Florida.

The ceiling had been repaired previously and by the looks of it, the roof continued to leak until the flat tile roof was completely redone recently by a licensed local roofing contractor.

Once I dug into this exterior ceiling it was apparent that the water damage was more extensive than it looked when the drywall ceiling was in place. I removed most of the ceiling and along with the drywall coming down, so did the blown in insulation…

Not only was a large section drywall ceiling in need of replacement. The furrings strips that hold the ceiling up had termite damage and rusted screws from all of the moisture from the roof leak.

After speaking with the homeowner about what plan of action it was going to take to get the extra framing replaced and resecured.

Once getting the ok to proceed with the extra work:

I removed all of the damaged furring strips and replaced them with new and installed 5/8″ exterior gypsum drywall soffit board with my handy dandy drywall lift with a 16′ extension.

Next, I finished the new drywall seams with fiberglass mesh tape, two coats of 45 minute setting type compound and skim coated the entire ceiling with USG All Purpose joint compound.

The next day I came back and retextured the entire ceiling with a skip trowel texture that needed to match the other four patios with skip troweled ceilings of this exclusive 6,000 sq ft home.

Indialantic Ceiling Repair and Skip Trowel Texture Match

This Project Blog is about a drywall ceiling repair on a home in the Rio Villa sub division Indialantic, FL.
We were contracted to repair a section of the formal dining room ceiling that had water damage from a roof leak.
First task was to cover and protect the flooring and anything else in the room.

Then we removed and replaced a 4′ x 12′ section of the drywall ceiling that had a skip trowel texture.

After the new drywall was installed, three coats of a setting type joint compound was applied so the drywall finishing and skip trowel texture could be completed in one day.

Next, we Installed a skip trowel texture at the repaired area feathering into the existing skip trowel texture.

Then lastly, spot primed the repair and applied two coats of Richards- Rich Wall Premium Acrylic Paint (flat white-L4 white tint).

Here’s a few Before and After photos of this drywall ceiling repair with Skip Trowel texture:

I absolutely recommend Peck Painting.

Paul Peck provided an accurate labor estimate then completed a beautiful and professional 100% interior paint job to my recently purchased home. The job required several sheet rock repairs that are now invisible. His attention to detail is obvious. My home has ceilings up to 30′ with nooks and crannies that look just as good as the easily reachable areas. I absolutely recommend Peck Painting.
