Find a Drywall Contractor

When is a drywall contractor necessary?

“How To Drywall” is all about providing do-it-yourself instructions to the homeowner on installing, finishing, and repairing drywall. It is our firm belief that with the proper information, patience, and hard work nearly anyone can repair or install drywall.

That said, we also know that problems and frustration can occasionally be encountered along the way. No two drywalling jobs are alike.

Some jobs are more complex than others and may require expert help. At other times life just gets in the way and what was begun with good intentions now looks like an endless task stretching to the horizon.

If either of these sound like you, now may be the time to call a drywall contractor. Drywallers are professionals that have dealt with jobs of all types – high ceilings, complicated curves, water damage. There is very little that a typical drywalling contractor has not seen in his/her line of work.

A drywall contractor doesn’t just know how to install drywall, but they also know how to “fix problems” encountered by do-it-yourselfers. If you started installing or repairing drywall yourself and feel you “messed up”, a drywall professional is probably the answer.

The internet has become a priceless tool in helping to locate and receive bids from quality contractors of all types – drywallers, painters, carpenters, and decorators.

Some tips for selecting a drywall contractor:

  • Tip #1

    Always take the steps to ensure that any contractor is bonded, insured, and experienced prior to hiring. Ask questions about his/her experience, ask them to provide references, and ask to see photos of their previous jobs.

    Check with your local Better Business Bureau to ensure that no outstanding complaints exist.

  • Tip #2

    We know that budget is always a major constraint when considering home improvement projects. One of the best ways to ensure that you are getting the most for your money is to get multiple bids on a job before proceeding. Always get at least two competing offers, and more if possible.

    Finally, if you receive a number of offers and one seems suspiciously lower than the others, ask yourself “why”. Reputation and experience are hard-earned commodities in the contractor field.

    In contracting, as in nearly everywhere else, you very often “get what you pay for”.
