Southwest Drywall Repair has provided Valley customers with quality service and affordable prices for more than two decades. Once the installer has completely installed their first Drywall Repair Plug, most future Drywall Repair Plugs are installed in 5-6 minutes. In this case all that is required is cutting out the affected area, usually only a 3′ – 4′ area and patching it in. In either situation cost is typically under $300.
The clips make the patch board used flush with the face of the wall instead of the back like most products in the market. Score the back of the drywall with a box cutter or knife about an inch from each side. We pride ourselves on making each drywall repair or renovation project (large or small) our main priority until completed to your satisfaction.
If you have had flooding or water damage in your home it is likely that your drywall was affected by it. Drywall is easily affected by contact to water. The combination of these materials gives drywall compound good adhesive properties, limited flexibility, and a hard, smooth surface for painting.
Using a straight edge and pencil, mark a square slightly larger than the damaged drywall hole. You can also make your own backerboard from a piece of scrap plywood or drywall. Projects can range from minor cosmetic fixes to major repairs, so the scope of our examples may help you anticipate the difficulty and cost of your own project.
Though a bit more skill is required to create a smooth finish over a larger repair area such as a seam or patch, neither level of repair requires an expensive investment in specialized tools. Minor drywall fixes in a small area or a single room can often be completed in just a couple of hours, though the work typically spans a few days.
