Foot Holes in Ceiling Drywall from Step-Through Damage

Sometimes an AC unit’s installation or repair creates a little more work than expected and Hole in the Wall Drywall Repair is ready to help AC contractors look like Rock Stars

Air Conditioning servicing in Florida and Alabama is a prime necessity, given the hot summers we endure in the Sunshine State and the Heart of Dixie—and sometimes these AC contractors and companies need a little help from our drywall repair company. That said, AC professionals specialize in Air Conditioning work—but not necessarily drywall repair.

Failing to fix damaged drywall can have a negative effect on an AC contractor’s work or in the company’s reputation. And no matter how professional the AC company may be, the fact is that mistakes can be made because we’re human—and if something goes wrong, it is that AC contractor’s responsibility to own the issue and find a viable solution.

Case in point, working in an attic—where drywall and insulation separate it from the living areas of a home—puts AC repair contractors “one step away” from being in both areas. In fact, step-through damage (as in, stepping where there’s no beam supporting a person’s weight) accounts for more than half of our service calls.

An AC contractor can weigh anywhere from 160 pounds to, well, let’s say 250 pounds. However, the porous nature of drywall makes it hard to take more than 10-15 pounds of weight per square foot. Without getting into a complex math calculation, we can safely say that one square foot of ceiling drywall cannot support anyone putting more than that amount of pressure per square foot.

Needless to say, if you don’t step over a wooden beam or an area reinforced to hold the weight, you will simply step through the drywall—both a startling and potentially dangerous situation for the AC contractor. And unfortunately, this is a common reason why Hole in the Wall Drywall Repair gets service calls from our network of trade service providers—such as AC contractors, electricians, plumbers, and related trades people.

Hole in the Wall Drywall Repair works with AC companies in the event their work becomes a bit more complex than they expected. Whether you stepped through the ceiling or had to do some pipe work in the wall that requires you to cut off a section of the drywall—we are ready to come right behind you and repair it.

Sometimes, we known in advance of the potential work when the service provider anticipates the need to cut off a piece of the drywall. But other times we get the call after a mistake has been made and the step-through damage is already making the AC contractor’s customer uneasy. And when a customer is not happy, he or she will tell a lot more people (as well as give a bad review on Yelp, Angie’s List or Google Reviews) than when they’re happy.
