Expert Drywall Repair Services in Nashville, TN

No matter how careful you are, life happens! Eventually your home will experience drywall damage: it’s not a matter of if, but when.

Sometimes it’s caused by an accident. A well-intentioned friend swings a little too wide while helping you move your couch, or maybe you discover that your toddler has a really good fastball. Alarmingly good.

Or, maybe you need electrical, HVAC, or plumbing work done. As a professional Nashville painting company, we see it all the time: gaping holes left behind by trades people who have a very specific job to do and understandably aren’t worried about the damage it causes.

No matter the reason, now you need to repair the drywall like it never even happened.

Fun fact: all Sheetrock is drywall, but not all drywall is Sheetrock

We can’t explain drywall repair without explaining the difference between drywall and sheetrock.

Drywall is a generic term that refers to a panel made of gypsum plaster that is sandwiched between two sheets of heavy paper or fiberboard. Sheetrock, on the other hand, is a brand name for a type of drywall that is manufactured by the company USG Corporation.

It’s a little like calling any tissue a Kleenex, or any adhesive bandage a Band-Aid. The brand has become synonymous with the product. Interesting, right? Anyway, on we go!

DIY vs. hiring a professional

It can be tempting to tackle the repair yourself. How hard can it be? Put in a new piece, tape it, slap on some mud… right?

The truth is, repairing drywall is a challenge. It’s extremely unforgiving, meaning that even if it’s almost perfect, you’ll always see the outline of the blemish. We recommend saving yourself a headache and hiring a professional for drywall repair. Here’s a closer look at why:

  • Patching drywall is difficult, especially if you don't have the right tools and materials. DIY repairs often stand out and look unprofessional. And it will NOT look better once painted, trust us. It will only stand out even more.

  • If you attempt to repair drywall yourself, you risk causing further damage, which can be expensive to fix in the long run. That eliminates any value or cost-savings you might enjoy from trying it yourself first.

  • Drywall repair professionals are skilled at making sure your walls and ceilings look as good as new.

In other words, drywall repair is a “do it once and do it right” type of project. Unless you have proven skills and experience, the outcome is almost guaranteed to be disappointing.

How do we patch/repair drywall?

First, we need to gather the right tools. This typically includes a utility knife, drywall saw, putty knife, taping knife, sandpaper, drill, and drywall screws. It also helps to have a drywall rasp, plus a vacuum to catch debris and minimize mess.

For materials, we’ll of course need drywall, and also joint compound (mud) and drywall tape to reinforce the seams.

Every project is a little different, but here’s a quick overview of how we tackle the process when we’re repairing drywall in Nashville:

  • Inspection: We'll assess the damage to determine the best course of action.

  • Preparation: We'll remove any damaged or loose drywall and prepare the surface for repair.

  • Installation: We'll install new drywall or repair the existing surface.

  • Finishing: We'll apply drywall tape, compound, and sand to achieve a smooth finish.

  • Painting: After a coat of primer, we'll paint the repaired area to match the surrounding wall or ceiling.

Drywall repair FAQs

Q: How much does drywall repair cost?

A: The cost of drywall repair varies depending on the extent of the damage, how much material is needed, the time involved, etc. We recommend scheduling a free estimate to get an accurate figure.

Q: How long does it take to repair drywall?

A: Similar to cost, the timeline of drywall repair services depends on the extent of the damage. Small repairs can usually be completed in a few hours, while more significant damage may take a few days.

Q: Are electricians or plumbers responsible for drywall repairs?

A: It depends on the situation. If they caused the damage accidentally while doing their job, they may be responsible for the repair costs. However, if the damage was pre-existing, or a required part of the work they needed to do, it's usually the homeowner's responsibility.

Q: Are you licensed and insured?

A: Yes, we are licensed and insured for your protection and peace of mind.
