How Big is the Drywall Repair Industry?

THE PATCH BOYS drywall franchise fills a gaping hole in the industry

According to Hunker, drywall is used in 96% of homes. This means that millions of people across the country are looking at gaping holes in their drywall right now. This is why the drywall repair industry is here to stay!

Damage to drywall is incredibly common, because it’s so easy to cause. We all have our own embarrassing stories about the time we accidentally slammed a doorknob, or a foot, or a hammer, or even a couch through the wall. While normal life and drywall sometimes don’t see eye to eye, drywall damage occurs for a wide variety of reasons.

Puls reports that the most common causes of drywall damage are:

  • Small holes can be caused by a doorknob, accidents, rodents, nails, or picture hooks.
  • Large holes can be caused by moving furniture, sporting equipment, TV brackets, or accidents with heavy objects.
  • Nail pops due to house settling.
  • Stress cracks due to foundation settling, earthquakes, or structural issues.
  • Water damage and mold caused by leaky windows or roof, leaking pipes, or around bath fixtures.*
  • Plumbers, electricians, and handymen cut holes in drywall while making repairs

While damage to our drywall is somewhat expected, a common cause of drywall damage is when industry professionals such as plumbers, electricians, restoration professionals and more, leave holes in our walls after they finish a job. According to Angie’s List, “you probably don’t want an electrician or plumber fixing a hole in your wall — it’s not their specialty.”

So who can fix the holes that professionals, and most often ourselves, put in the walls? The answer is THE PATCH BOYS.

THE PATCH BOYS is the Only National Brand Focused on Drywall Repair

In the $58.3 billion drywall repair industry, THE PATCH BOYS stands out as the only national brand that specializes in drywall repair. This lack of competition is not only good news for our franchise owners, but it’s also helping to set the gold standard for customer service in a segment currently dominated by independent contractors and handymen.

When a homeowner calls THE PATCH BOYS, we start out by sending a trained professional to deliver a free, in-home quote. Once the job is on the books, we can complete that job in a matter of hours, and we guarantee that the job will be done on the same day that we show up to work. Our expert crews use our proven methods to restore the drywall to its pre-damaged state, and once we’re done, we take pains to leave the property more beautiful than how we found it. We leave no mess or dust behind, and we do not consider our job complete until the customer is completely satisfied.

“We’re able to deliver a customer experience that is far beyond what the industry is known for,” says Ted Speers, Brand President of THE PATCH BOYS. “We take pride in our work and we want our customers to be satisfied with the end result. In the home services industry, this commitment to customer service is rare – and we’re happy to be an outlier in this regard. A satisfied customer means repeat and referral business.”

THE PATCH BOYS ability to offer a versatile suite of services for our customers also means that our franchise owners benefit from multiple revenue streams.
