Your Typical Drywall Patch Breakdown
Updated: Nov 11
Do you have ceiling damage from roof leaks? Do you have holes punched in your walls? Do you have cracked ceilings or walls? These are obvious signs of drywall damage. This page will educate you how much a patch repair will cost and the breakdown of said cost.
The Brass Tacks
The price tag is the subject of utmost necessity. For a patch that is as little as an eye to a 2’ x 2’ section, we are looking at a bracket price of $200 - $650 in labor and materials. Next, for patches between 2’ x 2’ and 4’ x 8’, we are talking about $650 - $2000, also in labor and materials. Please note that this is for typical patches for most homes seen by a Horton Remodeling professional. On occasion, we come across drywall areas that are three times the size of a 4’ x 8’ area.
1. Depending on whether there is water damage, consider the fact that you will most likely replace insulation, just like the picture on the left.
2. Depending on the finishing texture of the wall or ceiling, the cost may vary. For instance, the most expensive finish is smooth finish because it requires more joint compound coats, but a hawk - and - trowel texture hides more defects with less coats.
3. Be very careful who you choose to hire to fix your drywall needs. Choose someone who is conscientious about dust and cleanliness. It can mean the difference in how much dusting and cleaning you do later. The dust can clog your AC vents as well.
With all these points in mind, may you find yourself more prepared for the next drywall problem you face!
