It’s not easy finding a drywall company that’s willing to come fix my drywall, why is that?
There are even companies that advertise that they will come and fix your drywall but when you call they let you know that they will try and stop by on a Friday after their main job. If you’re in a hurry to have this fixed, this can be annoying and doesn’t feel like the service you were expecting.
Why do they do this?
We have all your answers right here
To have a taping or mudding company come and do a patch it requires many extra tools and compounds that the contractor doesn’t necessarily carry on a daily basis. Not only this, but tapers are used to being on a construction site, so they may not have the clean-up equipment needed either. And if that weren’t enough, you have to understand that not just any construction site taper has the right attitude to be client facing have proper communication and etiquette to take care of the client. So these jobs, usually get pushed to the end of the week and maybe even bailed on as the owner is exhausted by the end of the week.
So while these companies are more than capable of small patches, their companies are geared for large amounts of square footage per day. That is their forte.
For patching, a company will have not only equipment for smaller patches but also different compounds that set and harden much quicker than a premixed mud that is used on a typical construction site. If your typical mud were used, a technician would have to go to the home 5 times to complete a patch all the way to paint. No one can afford that kind of time or money.
