Top Drywall Repair & Patch related questions

As you may know by now, drywall is prone to physical damage from dents or knocks. It is also vulnerable to water damage and mould. However, it offers excellent insulation, considerable soundproofing, and is fire resistant. It is also relatively affordable, making it easier to replace and a popular choice for home builders. 

You can patch a ceiling’s drywall yourself as long as you have the proper tools, materials and skills needed for the job. However, for a less experienced handyman, the job may take longer to complete, and the overall quality of repair may suffer. It’s best to leave the job to the experts, especially when assessing damage to prevent costly fixes in the future.

Yes, you can recycle damaged drywall. Though you may need to do some digging to find a recycler that can accept it. Mould damaged drywall, on the other hand, cannot be recycled. Be sure to dispose of it properly. 

Small holes only take 15 to 20 minutes to repair. Meanwhile, larger holes may take up to two hours. However, the time it takes to replace multiple drywall panels may vary depending on the size of the job. Be sure to ask your Tasker for an estimated time of completion.

What do drywall repair services include?

Drywall repair services include everything you need to fix damages to your wall and ceiling. Damages include dents, cracks or holes on your drywall. Experts found on our platform can perform the task using industry best practices and adhere to regular safety standards. Drywall repair services include but are not limited to:

Site assessment

Proper assessment and inspection are essential before undertaking any repair job. Whether you need a repair on cracked drywalls or patching up your drywall ceiling, Taskers can assess the damage and what caused it so that they can take this into account during the drywall repair process.  Taskers may even take measurements if needed to determine how much material they need to complete the job. If you’re not sure about the materials you need, feel free to consult your Tasker. Ask if they can source the materials for you and discuss other important points in detail before accepting an offer.

Site preparation

Once you have ironed out the details with your Tasker and completed the site assessment, next on the agenda is site preparation. Taskers may use protective material to cover the worksite and anything nearby to reduce the mess. This makes things easier for the clean-up crew especially from any debris from drywall crack repairs. For any repairs that are caused by leaking water pipes, heating or electrical systems and the like, consider hiring a general contractor to resolve the problem and prevent any further damage in the future.

Wall and ceiling repairs

Once the work site is ready, Taskers can begin the process of patching up, filling and smoothing out the holes and cracks on your drywall. Since drywall is prone to damage, sometimes not even your ceiling is safe. Patching up any damage to your drywall ceiling should pose no difficulty for your Tasker. And after getting drywall ceiling repair near you, consider hiring someone to clean your ceiling for a healthier, aesthetically pleasing space.

Depending on the damage and initial assessment, Taskers may even repair or replace sections of drywall and finish them to match your existing walls. If you need some additional wall painting done, don’t hesitate to post another task and find a specialist on our platform.

Overall, though drywall is prone to damage, it is still an affordable, sturdy material that is ideal for building homes. You can rely on experts on Airtasker for all your drywall repair needs.

Padstow NSW, Australia

26th Apr 2022

I need you to: 1. Mount a 55” TV on the wall, TV bracket provided for you; 2. Teach me how to nail/screw things on the drywall, including: 1) how to detect electric cables behind the wall (with your own equipment, so I will know what to use); 2) how to use stud finder (I have my own); 3) what kind of screw/washer/nail/wall plug (if any) to use to hang things on the dry wall; 4) instruct me to hang a painting on the wall (I have a picture hanging kit); 5) answer questions I may have, so that I will be confident hanging things like floating shelves by myself. Please see photos of my TV bracket and TV.

Matt’s very patient, detailed and explained everything crystal clear for me, answering all my inquiries to the fullest. Highly recommended!
