Nathan G. in Atlanta, GA

"Like a lot of the reviews here state, his report might take awhile (even if he says he'll do it in a week or so) so just be warned going a ...into it. Not sure about his responsiveness directly, but his office administrator Robin was very responsive and helpful, and kept me updated on the status of the report. (He came down with the flu so was out of commission for few weeks). In terms of the work itself, I found Mike to be extremely thorough, knowledgable, and willing to break things down and answer any questions I had. "

Ideas & Inspiration from Atlanta Residential Architects & Engineers


Atlanta Drywall Repair

We're not sure what it is about Atlantans and drywall, but drywall repair in Atlanta consistently ranks as one of the most requested jobs that HomeAdvisor.com refers contractors to homeowners for. More than likely it's the combination of one of the most populated metropolitan areas in the nation with the wide range of possible repairs that encompass drywall repair in Atlanta. Whatever the reasons, here is some information and advice on Atlanta drywall repair, so you know what to expect when you start calling around.

Drywall Repair 101
While some services provided by drywall repairs are expected and straightforward (i.e. fixing the hole in your teenage son's room where he was practicing to be the next great home run hitter for the Braves), the scope of what Atlanta drywall repair specialists can do for residents of the A-T-L is often overlooked. Atlanta drywall repair contractors know patching and drywall hanging like the back of their hands, but they also texture walls and ceilings prior to painting, remove pesky popcorn ceilings, perform decorative plaster work such as arching doorways, and many are experts at dealing with water-damaged drywall including providing mold and mildew remediation services. If you've got a problem or a need that includes any facet of drywall, there's a drywall repairman somewhere in Atlanta that can get your job done.

Repair Costs
We can talk about Atlanta drywall repair services all we want, but the first thing Atlantans want to know if they're facing a home improvement or repair is how much it's going to cost. Of course that varies depending on the extent of your repair and what you need to have done, but HomeAdvisor.com can give you a pretty solid idea of what drywall repair in Atlanta ends up costing customers who use our referral services. Drawing from data collected in post-job, follow-up surveys, the average drywall repair in Atlanta costs $420. And, just to give you a little more perspective, the high and low costs in our books ran $100 and $1100, respectively.

Timelines
After inquiring about costs, most homeowners turn to how long they should expect a drywall repair in Atlanta to take. Again drawing from our post-job surveys, HomeAdvisor can help give you an idea of what to plan for. The average project duration for Atlanta drywall repair is about two days, with a low of a few hours and a high of nine days. Even though the worst-case scenario is still a pretty quick fix in the broader world of home improvement, make sure you're clear with your contractor that you expect the job to be done in a timely manner. The final question on our survey is what advice, if any, homeowners would choose to give fellow Atlantans seeking drywall repair services. While only 5 percent of the drywall repairmen HomeAdvisor refers to homeowners in Atlanta have compiled an average rating of less than a 4 stars out of a possible 5, the one piece of advice that comes up again and again is the need to keep your contractor on track and on time. "Be sure to let the professional know what sort of time limits you have before beginning," wrote one Atlantan. Another suggested that you "Make sure to ask all questions up front and that everyone is clear on the timeline of the project." One customer did write that Atlantans should "Be flexible," reminding them that "construction folks can get behind in other jobs, which might delay the work on your project." Nonetheless, it's important to note that in the world of Atlanta drywall repair, it pays to make sure your contractor knows what you expect regarding timelines, and that you do your best to hold them to it.

Other Advice
As you might have guessed, the sound advice of Atlantans to their neighbors regarding drywall repair doesn't end with how to keep the repairs on track. In response to our surveys there are great suggestions on everything from how to find a good contractor to avoiding needing a drywall repairman in the first place. "Hire a professional drywall contractor to do the drywall repairs or installation if you want it to look really good," suggested one homeowner who clearly understands how tough drywall repair work really is despite how easy the pros make it look. Another offered good advice on how to prep your home before your contractor arrives: "Make sure all precautions are taken to protect furniture, bedding, and clothes so the clean up is minimal." After all, this can be some dirty work.

Finally, on the subject of finding the right contractor in the first place, here are some words to live by: "Take your time and shop around for an estimate," and "Make sure the company is professional, friendly, and responsive to your needs." The best way to do that is to get at least three bids on your drywall repair, and to check the references of contractors that you're considering for the job. Remember, Georgia doesn't require drywall contractors, or any other contractor for that matter, to be licensed, meaning it's up to you to do your homework to ensure that your Atlanta drywall repair hire is going to give you the level of service you deserve.
