Drywall is a very low-cost and attractive way to beautify your home and make it feel comfortable. They are made from crystalline water and gypsum and has been one of the most popular materials used for homes in the United States. But if these walls are not repaired when needed, damaged drywall can cause foundational problems that pose high health risks for you and your family.

Experts from Encore Painting, Mckinney reveal the many reasons why your drywall may need to be repaired or replaced depending on their condition.


  • When the drywall is penetrated either because of screws or nail holes in it, it will likely weaken and expose the very insides to damage from moisture and dampness. If you suspect the drywall suffering damages from these two problems, you may immediately need to have it repaired by a professional.

Moreover, if drywall is exposed to moisture, it can lead to mold buildup in ways you may not be able to easily see. There are severe medical risks of a wall having mold in it. This can result in cough, headache, congestion and in rare cases, pulmonary fibrosis, neurotoxicity, and cancer.


  • If your home starts to settle, the very framework of it can start to shift and that can cause the drywall to strain which will result in a crack. So if you see cracks in your drywall, it is very important to call in an expert for inspection.¬†

Leaving this problem unintended can have severe consequences on your home, posing life-threatening risks to you and your family.

  • Keep this in mind that a simple crack or an unstable seam in the wall can lead to increased crumbling walls or cracks. So it is crucial that you make the necessary repairs on the drywall, preventing structural damage as well as saving expenses in the future.

The longer you wait, the worse the condition will get and this can turn a small and simple job to a larger and more expensive replacement.
