    Is doing drywall repair before painting necessary?

    Drywalls are a basic part of any home’s interior and provide insulation and are fire-resistant.

    When it’s time to give your home a good ol’ interior paint job, one thing you need to do is make sure that your drywall is in good condition.

    Drywalls won’t last forever, and that’s a fact. Over time, they’ll start to get cracks due to heat, the home’s structure shifting, moisture damage from high indoor humidity, and water leaks.

    Now, you might think simply painting over your interior drywalls will do the trick but if you do that, you’ll risk ruining your interior paint job. The damages on the drywall will make it difficult for the paint to stick and will lead to flaking, causing your interiors to look shoddy.

    Simply put, painting over damaged drywall will be a waste of time, money, and good paint.

    • Michelle B - Mission Beach, CA

      “Justin has worked on my home, my sister’s, and my next door neighbor’s! We all had a fantastic experience. Best painting company in San Diego”

    • Rebecca B – Pacific Beach, CA

      You can stop searching, Justin at J Brown Painting is your go-to guy for anything house painting, window washing, power washing, stucco patching, and even gutter cleaning. We've used him for literally all of these services! At first, we were concerned because he looks so young. But, within 5 minutes of meeting him, we could tell he knew his stuff. We were impressed that he would work 10 hour days and how tansparent he was with his prices, and didn't try to sell us on stuff we didn't actually need. 10/10, would recommend :)

    • Trish M – La Jolla, CA

      As promised, we're working with J Brown Painting again to paint the exterior of our house. And couldn't be happier. :) Same nice, professional guy doing an exceptional job! It's hard to find a good painter in San Diego. Justin and his team are everything you'd want in a contractor: timely, friendly, dependable, and affordable. And clean! We worked with him to paint the interior of our old home, plus the kitchen cabinets and recently had him clean the windows of our new home. We plan to use him again to paint the inside and exterior of our new home soon too. Highly recommend!

    Too much water damage would mean that the drywall has become soggy and spongy. At this point, there’s no saving it, you’ll need to get a replacement.
    How can I protect my interior drywall against moisture damage?
    Apply some waterproofing primer to the drywall to keep out moisture and protect it from mold and mildew.
    What are the best interior paints for drywalls?
    Try using high-gloss paints for your drywall. These paints are very resistant to moisture and high temperatures; this way they can protect your drywall against heat cracks and moisture damage.
