Mold and mildew can become problems in high moisture areas of the house such as a bathroom or kitchen. Repair or install drywall and tile with mold resistant products and joint tape. Many of these brands are available at your local Home Depot or Lowe’s. A No Mold product may cost a few dollars more but can be worth the peace of mind when you spend money on home remodeling.
In both states where I practiced real estate, termite inspections were required by law. In Missouri, treatment for termites could be paid for by the buyer or seller. In Kansas, state laws forced the seller to pay for treatment. Neither state specified who would be responsible for structural damage, however, so this was a negotiating point when termites were found.
He did the work, quick and so professionally. He even explained what was wrong behind the scenes with my current wall and why it gave away so easily and really did a STELLAR job! After the work he cleaned everything up and left the space absolutely spic n span. In addition he didn’t even charge me for parking (which can get expensive for downtown Chicago)!
You’re ready to start applying the tape and joint compound to your drywall. Open the joint compound and, if separated with liquid on top, mix it just enough to mix in any liquid. Do not discard the liquid; it is not simply water, but part of the joint compound. For taping the walls it should be used as received without any dilution as any water addition also dilutes the glue and bonding ability of the joint compound.
I want to tell you my journey with one room in particular. This most horrifying of rooms was a teenagers room at one point. It had many layers of paint and wallpaper on all the walls. At some point in this teens life he got his hands on a dart gun and a Sharpie marker. He shot up the walls with the dart gun and every where you looked there were tiny holes. If you have plaster walls then you know that when you pull a nail out of the wall it creates an outward dink in the plaster.
