Fast, Seamless Drywall Repair
Drywall is affordable and easy to repair as compared to other building materials. It serves a few important functions in your home.
- First, it is an insulator that helps maintain room temperature and improves energy efficiency.
- Second, it helps protect your family with fire-resistant and moisture-resistant properties.
- Third, it serves as a canvas for paint, wallpaper, wall hangings, and other decorative features. You can change the look and feel of any room many times over.
YardDoc provides wall and ceiling repair services for holes, cracks, dings and dents, sagging, and water damage. Our contractors know pressure washing and pressure cleaning pro tips to help reduce water damage.
Our handyman team also offers popcorn ceiling removal for a smooth surface ready for updated texture or paint.

Drywall vs. Sheetrock ®
Drywall comprises panels of gypsum plaster (a lightweight rock ground into powder) pressed between thick sheets of paper. You might hear it referred to as Sheetrock®, wallboard, plasterboard, or gypsum board.
Sheetrock® is a recognized and trusted brand name. The manufacturer offers specialty products for installation depending on project type. For instance, you may use Greenboard (moisture-resistant) in bathrooms while using the Type X fire-resistant product around a fireplace. Styles of material include:
Beware of Chinese drywall. It is a poor-quality product containing toxic substances. Imported into the United States until 2009 and used on hundreds of thousands of homes, it can cause severe health risks and property damage.
Patented by the United States Gypsum Company (USG), Sheetrock® offers a manufacturers’ warranty and excellent customer support.
Understanding Drywall Thickness
The thickness varies depending on your project. The three most common thicknesses are:
- 1/4 Inch: The thinnest, best used when remodeling your basement or other spaces that do not need thick reinforcement.
- 1/2 inch: The most common size preferred by builders and carpenters for installation in almost any area of your home.
- 3/4 Inch: Three times thicker for reinforcement in high-humidity spaces like bathrooms.
Efficiency is one advantage of using drywall for your home improvement project. The lath and plaster building process can take weeks or months versus repair or installation in only a few days.
The YardDoc handyman team will advise you on the best type, style, and thickness for your project.
This is the last step in preparing walls and ceilings for painting. Our handyman team tapes, muds, sands, and installs corner beading. The result is an unblemished, smooth surface.
It may be unfinished in your garage or basement, for instance. Contact YardDoc and your space is only days away from becoming a comfortable, pleasing living space in your home. You also benefit from the protection it provides.
