Water Leak Damaged Kitchen Wall Fixed

Water leak damage repair

At West Handyman, we like keeping your home safe, functional, and beautiful with our repair services. Recently, we had the opportunity to assist a client in Fulham who was facing a water leak issue in their kitchen. Here’s how we tackled the problem and fixed their kitchen water leak damaged wall. 

The Challenge: Water Infiltration Damage
Our customer kitchen wall and ceiling had suffered water infiltration, leading to unsightly damage. The leak had not only damaged the paint but also the underlying plaster.

  1. Removing Damaged paint and plaster

The first step is to remove the damaged paint and plaster. This required careful scraping and sanding to ensure that all compromised material was completely eliminated. Our goal was to create a clean and stable surface for the new layers of plaster and paint.

  1. Applying New Plaster

Once the old, damaged plaster was removed, we applied a fresh layer of high-quality plaster. This step is crucial as it provides a smooth and even base for painting. After applying the new plaster, we allowed it to dry thoroughly before moving on to the next step.

  1. Sanding the Surface

After the plaster dried, we sanded the surface to achieve a flawless finish. Sanding is essential for removing any imperfections and ensuring that the wall is perfectly smooth for painting.

  1. Applying Primer-Sealer

With the surface prepared, we applied a  primer-sealer that is specifically designed for blocking stains. This primer-sealer contains a biocide that protects the dried coating against damp and mould, making it ideal for high-humidity areas such as bathrooms or kitchens. This layer is essential for providing a durable and long-lasting finish.

  1. Painting the Wall

Once the primer-sealer had dried, we proceeded to apply two coats of high-quality paint. This not only restored the clean look of the kitchen wall but also added an extra layer of protection against future moisture damage.

The Result: A Restored Kitchen
Our repair process transformed the damaged kitchen wall into a good looking  and durable surface.

 We understand the importance of timely and efficient repairs, especially when it comes to water damage. If you’re facing similar issues or need any handyman services, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re here to help!
