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.
