When it comes to home improvements projects, do-it-yourself painting and wallpapering are fairly common. It is a different story with drywalls, however. According to Angie’s List founder Angie Hicks, “DIY projects can be a lot of fun but, honestly, drywall is a lot harder than it looks. It’s heavy material, takes lots of tools. It’s really best left to the professionals,” In light of this advice from a home improvement authority, Cambridge residents will do well to hire professional Cambridge drywall services for their needs.
Small drywall repair jobs can be done yourself, but even those can get complicated. The real problem lies in installing new drywall and maintaining it.
