  • do repairs of the areas that are damaged and not the whole thing

How much does waterproofing cost?

It's all about the time and materials. Caulking is one of those things you don’t want to cut corners on because it can really screw up the look of the entire job. That’s why you hire a pro to do it right. Different types of caulking deliver different benefits. Some are water-resistant, have different levels of durability or can be painted over - others can’t. One big difference between interior and exterior caulking is that indoor caulking can usually be painted, outdoor can’t.

How much time does it take and how much does it cost to fix a hole in the wall?

Size of the hole as well as type and shape of the wall will determine the time and price. Smaller holes can be filled and painted fast, but in case of the bigger ones you are looking at a few days of work to cover the hole, plaster it several times to make the surface smooth and ready for painting, and, finally, prime and paint the wall.
