Drywall and ceiling repair services grow during pandemic-driven housing boom

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (August 18, 2021)The Patch Boys, America’s first, largest and most trusted drywall repair franchise company, has seen a nationwide increase of drywall repair and installation service requests since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as demand for ceiling and plaster repair, popcorn ceiling removal and texture matching among home buyers and sellers.

With the summer and early fall months being the busiest moving season and many people taking advantage of historically low mortgage rates across the nation, the need for The Patch Boys’ services – which are typically done in the final stages of renovations and preparations to make homes move-in ready – are growing rapidly.

“With the pandemic prompting a housing boom and drywall being one of the most common home repair needs, our team has been incredibly busy helping home buyers and sellers fix up their walls, ceilings and more,” said Ted Speers, President of The Patch Boys. “We commend our hard-working franchisees who continue to successfully and safely provide their expert services day in and day out.”

If you’re looking to sell your home or are in the market to buy, The Patch Boys have several tips on what to consider before making a move:
Seller should not wait to freshen up their homes before listing, as restoration projects take time and typically need several months to be completed.
Buyers should look for water spots, pressure cracks around windows and doorways, and questionable dents and dings, as these are problems that should be addressed before purchasing a home and will not go away on their own.
● Modernizing a house with current trends – like removing popcorn textured ceilings – can be an easy and cost-efficient update for both buyers and sellers to consider.

“The entire BELFOR family is so proud of The Patch Boys’ constant dedication over the past year and a half,” said Sheldon Yellen, CEO of the BELFOR Franchise Group. “As real estate activity and home improvement projects will only continue to increase in the coming months, new homeowners and sellers can count on The Patch Boys to get the job done right.”
