Top 5 Causes of Drywall Damage

Drywall is an essential part of any home, thanks to it being incredibly durable and easy to work with. However, despite its durability, it can still be damaged, and while repair can be a quick fix for the professionals, understanding what is causing the damage will help you prevent it from reoccurring.

So what are some of the most common causes of drywall damage? We have taken a closer look at the top five:

Water damage

One of the most common causes of destruction is damage from water. This often occurs in bathrooms or kitchens, but it can also be caused by plumbing issues or a leaking roof.

Stress cracks

Drywall can experience a lot, and over time stress cracks can occur. These cracks can appear anywhere, but most typically, this happens in the ceiling.

Poor installation

Another very common cause of drywall damage is poor installation. Incorrect fitment can lead to the drywall moving, cracking, and breaking.


Impact damage can occur very easily through the hustle and bustle of life. Moving furniture, children, doorknobs, and pets are amongst the most common causes of impact damage.

Emergency repairs

Carrying our emergency plumbing or electrical repairs often requires them to open up walls to perform the work; however, very rarely do they repair or replace the damaged drywall.
