Your drywall can get more extensive damage from moisture and temperature changes. This is when you can start seeing cracks in your walls. If you have a water leak you can see your drywall start to bow or bubble because there is water behind the drywall. Your drywall can also get damaged from just your house settling. This also causes cracks in your drywall that you need to get fixed. Any type of damage in your drywall needs to be fixed before painting.
Why is Drywall Repair Important Before Painting?
