Often the best ways to find a good drywall contractor is through referrals. Ask your friends, family and co-workers to recommend a drywall contractor they’ve had a good experience with. Also, ask the contractor about their licenses and insurance.

Drywall contractors are in high demand on construction sites and interior design projects. The work is physically demanding, but adjusts once you settle into a routine. Work can be inconsistent, having more than you can handle at one point and not enough later. It’s important to plan ahead and strategize when booking long-term projects.

Drywall is the wall finishing choice of contractors far and wide, since the 1940’s. There’s a clear reason for that – it’s versatile and fire-resistant. If you have a larger budget, don’t mind keeping your walls with the wood look indefinitely and aren’t too concerned about fire-proofing, then veneer or solid wood panel ceilings or walls may be an option for you. But if you like the freedom to update your space with a fresh coat of paint and the security of knowing your house or commercial building is a little safer, drywall is the best choice.

Drywall repair is tricky, but not impossible. If it’s a small hole, it can usually be easily repaired by a home owner. However, the bigger the hole the harder it is to match it up with the rest of the wall. 

Today there are many YouTube videos that show home owners how to repair drywall. If you want to go this route, we recommend watching a couple different well-rated videos before deciding whether or not you feel comfortable handling it on your own.

The answer to that question lies mainly in how big the hole is. A very large hole, or several larger holes, can undermine the integrity of the drywall. If this is the case, then you definitely want to replace the drywall.

Yes. If new drywall is not primed it will be very absorbent, requiring much more of your costly paint. You may even want to apply two coats of primer before painting, to ensure you don’t lose money.

Repairing drywall is not a hard task for everyone. A lot depends on what experience you already have and your ability to translate instructions to your specific situation. If you’ve done various craft/art/home improvement projects through the years, you may find this task less difficult than another person might. Also, there are a lot of YouTube videos available with instruction, though we recommend watching several high-rated videos before deciding whether or not to tackle the problem yourself.
