Knowing how to patch drywall could be one of the smartest skill sets you learn.
You might feel unnerved by the site of damaged ceilings or walls, but the price to have them repaired by a pro somehow outweighs this inconvenience.
Years ago I paid about $600 for a 5 by 5 foot section of ceiling to be replaced. While I was grateful to my contractor it definitely hurt the wallet.
For some reason I thought that patching the ceiling was out of my DIY league. That said, I also knew that having the audacity to challenge myself in the art of drywalling would come in handy. Not to mention save me some major dinero.
And I was right more than once.
