For most interior residential, commercial, and condominium painting and renovation projects, drywall repairs or drywall hanging installations are required before we can get started. Rather than hiring a separate drywall or taping contractor for this service, why not have our “in-house” crew at Home Painters do it instead? This makes it easier to manage and keep your project moving forward. Waiting for a third-party contractor to fulfill these duties is often difficult to coordinate and means extra costs for you.

Drywall, often comprised of gypsum board or sheetrock (even if the latter is actually a brand name, like Kleenex), is a modern invention. In the fifty years or so since it was first introduced into residential home construction practice, its use has skyrocketed. Close to 95% of buildings now use drywall in their construction rather than more traditional materials, such as plaster. There are many reasons why drywall will need to be repaired or replaced. Whether there is water damage, or holes to patch, we can help repair existing drywall, replace damaged drywall, or even install and hang new drywall altogether.

At Home Painters, our professional and experienced drywall installers and tapers can make your home or office look like new again!

DRYWALL Installation repair Ottawa


  • Cost-Effective

Drywall is often the most affordable building material. Even if you are having it installed by an Ottawa drywall contractor, it is far more cost-effective than traditional plaster, which requires more materials, careful application, and a highly-trained professional.

  • Easy to Paint

Properly installed and prepped drywall is every Ottawa painter’s dream. Large sheets mean fewer edges to conceal with putty or paint, and the surface of drywall is specifically designed to be perfectly porous for painting.

  • Durable

While drywall may sound hollow if you knock on it, the thin sheets are actually composed of gypsum: a versatile material that is compressed into a rock-hard surface and then covered on both sides with paper. Unlike plaster walls, drywall is unlikely to crack or crumble during the course of normal Ottawa house settling. If it does crack, it’s usually around the joints rather than in the center, meaning it will be easier to repair.

  • Easy to Replace and Repair

Drywall is widely available, and because it comes in blocks, you can replace it in small sections – this is much less time-consuming and expensive than replacing the entire wall! Drywall repairs can usually be done with some patience and specially-crafted materials and supplies. Home Painters has plenty of experience performing these repairs and our professional crews would be happy to share their techniques with you.

  • Fire and Water Resistant

Technology is always evolving. Older houses may be more susceptible to water damage and mold, which is another reason to repair and replace the drywall in your Ottawa home. The latest innovations have provided stronger, sturdier drywall that is both water and fire resistant so your home is safe and solid for years to come.

Here is what to do when you are ready to get your drywall hanging installed and repaired:


Step 1: Once you decide you need drywall installation or repairs, give us a call or send us an email and we will be quick to answer or get back to you.

Step 2: Our drywall hanging installation and repair expert will arrive on time and deliver you a free, on-site quote (usually in less than an hour)!

Step 3: Once we book your job, we will arrange a date for your project to start, confirm scope details, and arrange a deposit and payment schedule that works for you.   

Step 4: After 30 years of being in the construction industry, drywall installation and repairs are truly a natural part of the painting and decorating process for us. Because of our experience and track record, we have developed a proven formula that guarantees our success:

On the first day of the job, we will review the scope with you once more to make sure that we understand your needs. Then, we’ll get to work right away! Since drywall and plastering takes time to dry, these projects can sometimes take many days. If this is the case for your situation, we will map out a plan that conveniently suits both of our schedules.

Once we get started, we will prepare your rooms by covering any furniture and your floors with drop sheets. We will also clean up the job site as we go to ensure a clean, safe, comfortable dwelling place for you to live in while we’re fixing it up.

Step 5: Drywall hanging and repairs often take multi days so you will be given regular job updates either in-person, through text, or by email to ensure that you are kept up-to-date throughout the process.  

Step 6: Once we have completed the project, we will do a walkthrough with you (if you are there). If not, we will follow-up with you to ensure that everything is to your liking. We do not consider the job complete until you have thoroughly checked it out and are satisfied. We are not happy until you are!

We are so confident that we can deliver that we offer a “lifetime warranty” on all of our interior services. This is something that has never been offered before in the history of the painting industry!
