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, drywall 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, drywall 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 drywall repair services for holes, cracks, dings and dents, sagging ceilings, and water damage. Our contractors know pressure washing and pressure cleaning basics to help reduce water damage.
Our drywall contractors and painters also offer popcorn ceiling removal that results in a smooth ceiling 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 drywall referred to as Sheetrock®, wallboard, plasterboard, or gypsum board.
Sheetrock® is a recognized and trusted brand name of drywall. The manufacturer offers specialty products for drywall 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. Types of drywall include:
Beware of Chinese drywall. It is a poor-quality drywall product containing toxic substances. Imported into the United States until 2009 and used on hundreds of thousands of homes, it causes severe health risks and property damage.
Patented by the United States Gypsum Company (USG), Sheetrock® drywall offers a manufacturers’ warranty and excellent customer support.
Understanding Drywall Thickness
Drywall thickness varies depending on your project. The three most common thicknesses are:
- 1/4 Inch: The thinnest drywall, 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 drywall 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, whereas drywall repair or installation only takes a few days.
YardDoc drywall contractors will advise you on the best type and thickness of drywall for your project.
Drywall finishing is the last step in preparing walls and ceilings for painting. Our drywall contractors tape, mud, sand, and install corner beading. The result is an unblemished, smooth surface.
You may have unfinished drywall in the 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 finished, coated drywall provides.
