Washington DC Drywall Repair

In Washington DC, drywall repair is a task that the majority of homeowners will have to consider at some point. Though older homes in the DC area might have walls made of another material, drywall has now been the standard for interior walls for decades. It's relative ease of installation and low price have made drywall a staple in homes for the last 60 years, and its popularity shows no signs of going away. However, drywall is not without its drawbacks. Though an excellent material in many ways, drywall is not indestructible. Impact on drywall can cause dents (or even holes if the force is strong enough), and it is particularly susceptible to moisture damage. Even though drywall repair is not generally a structural necessity, it is a must if you want your home to look its best.

DIY Repair
Do-it-yourselfers nationwide have long considered drywall repair an excellent task to tackle without professional help. While large, involved drywall jobs should probably be left to the professionals, most homeowners with the patience and the desire can probably fix the most common drywall issues on their own. Small dents and nail holes are very common, and can generally be fixed quickly and cheaply by even less than handy homeowners. In fact, your local home improvement center can probably provide you with everything you need to perform these tasks along with step-by-step instructions on how to do it right.

DIY drywall repair isn't always a walk in the park, however! Though most homeowners will be able to do a passable job on smaller drywall repairs, damaged areas larger than a half-dollar can be very noticeable if they aren't finished seamlessly. Drywall finishing is more an art than a science, and getting the repaired area to blend in with what's around it takes practice, demanding time that many homeowners simply can't spare.

Professional Repair
For many homeowners in Washington DC, drywall repair is just inconvenient enough to warrant calling in a professional. For smaller jobs, hiring a handyman service instead of a company specializing in drywall can yield professional results and allow you to take care of a few other small jobs around the house. For more severe damage, however, there's good reason to call in an experienced drywall professional.

When large amounts of drywall need to be repaired or replaced, there is no substitute for an experienced hand. Unlike minor drywall repair, Washington DC interiors that have been damaged by excessive moisture or heavy impact can be a real nightmare for the uninitiated. Creating a continuous, matching surface is far more difficult that it might appear, but an experienced drywall contractor can make it look easy. Though more expensive than doing the job yourself and less convenient than hiring a handyman to mend many small problems, hiring someone who specializes in drywall generally ends up being a sound investment where significant damage exists.

Costs
In and around Washington DC, drywall repair is a very common task. What this means for homeowners looking to hire a professional is that they will have many companies to choose from. We've seen DC prices from drywall work vary dramatically from job to job with small repairs running under $200 and the largest breaking the $1,000 mark. As always, it is a good idea to contact multiple contractors and get several bids if you want to find the best price. However, the lowest price is not always the best option. As one homeowner from Silver Spring told us, "Get estimates, but don't necessarily go with the cheapest. You get what you pay for, and the extra is well worth it when it comes to drywall work!"

Drywall Contractors
Because there are so many contractors to choose from in Washington DC, drywall repair is likely to vary dramatically in quality as well as price depending on who you hire. You could, of course, simply go through the phone book to find a drywall contractor. Washington DC's yellow pages, however, are a little lengthy and lack a lot of the information you'll want to consider when hiring a contractor.

Here at HomeAdvisor, we're doing our best to take the guesswork out of finding the best Washington DC drywall contractors. Unlike the phone book, every contractor we'll match you with must pass through our ten-step screening process to ensure their business is legitimate. Additionally, every homeowner who finds a contractor through HomeAdvisor has the opportunity to rate their contractor and post feedback about their project. This gives you valuable information about the companies you're considering, and the chance for positive feedback gives each of our contractors an added incentive to do a good job every time!
