Reasons you Shouldn’t DIY a Drywall Repair

If you take a minute to look around online, you’ll likely notice that there seems to be a “how to” video for just about everything. Regardless as to whether you’re wanting to bake a cake, install software or get some expert advice on how to cook the perfect steak, someone, somewhere, has posted a video on the topic.

Yet while there is certainly no harm in trying to tackle some jobs on your own, there are others that you’ll want to leave to the experts. Fixing drywall is one of those jobs.

Just because you can do something on your own, that doesn’t mean you should

If you’re still thinking about handling drywall repair yourself, we’d encourage you to take a minute to google “DIY gone wrong” images. Remember- all of these people had a project they felt they could tackle themselves, only to find out that they bit off more than they could chew.

It’s also worth noting that DIY jobs don’t come with a warranty or guarantee. If you mess something up during a drywall repair, you’ll likely need to pay an experienced company to fix what you didn’t do correctly.

Hiring a professional will save you money

This may seem counter-intuitive but it’s true. When you install or repair drywall there are a number of specialized tools that you’ll need to make sure the job is done right. If you’re not a professional installer, you probably don’t have these tools lying around the house (aka, you’ll need to buy them.)

But there are other ways that hiring a pro can save you money. Let’s say you attempt the repair four times before you finally get it right. Drywall companies know how to get jobs done correctly the first time- so you’ll not only save money on materials, you’ll also want to take into account the value of your time.
