A damaged wall should never be painted if it needs repair.
Neglecting that step will result in a finish that will quickly begin to peel and crack. Additionally, if the repairs are done improperly the surface will be lumpy and shoddy looking. That’s why it’s important to hire a professional like ACP Painting to do the repair.

Causes of Damage to Drywall and Stucco

There are several factors that can contribute to damages to both drywall and stucco.

  • Time plays a toll. Walls inside and outside your home will naturally deteriorate as they age.
  • Water leaks, floods or minor house fires can damage walls.
  • Weather, like excessive heat, pelting rain, even minor earthquakes can cause damage. Just one hailstorm, although rare in Arizona, can cause major damage.
  • Vibrations from nearby sources, like construction, trains, planes, and highways can rattle the house, resulting in damage.
  • Insect infestations, especially termites, can cause major damage to a home’s structure. They will tunnel tiny holes into drywall, leaving the internal material weakened and crumbling.
  • Everyday events, like moving furniture, children roughhousing, or other minor incidents can put dents and holes in the wall.
  • Newly built homes will gradually settle and shift, causing cracks to form.

Stucco is a material used on exterior walls and can be damaged by additional issues as well. Most damage is caused by excess moisture to penetrate the stucco, eventually deteriorating it.

  • Outdoor plants and vegetation, planted too closely to the house, can cause moisture wicking inside the stucco.
  • Windows that were improperly installed or sealed can allow excess moisture to seep into the stucco.
  • Subterranean stucco. If there are sections of the stucco that are below ground or even too much in contact with the ground, this can contribute to the absorption of moisture and then cause issues for the entire house.
  • Improper installation can lead to cracks developing in the stucco; for example, if the stucco wasn’t mixed properly or not allowed to properly cure. Also, if the drywall wasn’t properly attached to framing at seams, problems will result
