Can I Install Drywall Myself?
If you are familiar with drywall work, and you feel comfortable taking on a project, it is possible to hang and finish drywall yourself. However, it is recommended to stick to small projects, like patching holes, and leave the larger projects to a trained team of professionals. When it comes to increasing the value of your home, you want to be sure every precaution is taken when installing new drywall. For this reason, it is best to outsource professional drywall services rather than take on a drywall project on your own. Call Rock & Stone Drywall professionals today.
