What is the Cost for Drywall Ceiling repair after a Leak?

A leak from a plumbing problem, failing appliance, or old roof can cause permanent ceiling damage, especially when it’s not discovered right away. As a result, drywall ceiling repair is more than just a matter of looks, it’s absolutely necessary. The last thing you want is soggy, ruined drywall falling from your ceiling and injuring someone in your home or damaging your belongings! So, when your ceiling has water damage, you’ll want to get that repaired or replaced right away.

The extent of the damage and the type of ceiling you have will determine whether it can be repaired or if it will need to be entirely replaced. Ceilings with specialty design elements or structural components are more likely to need to be replaced when they are damaged than those that are just plain. However, a water restoration expert can advise you on whether any part of your ceiling can be salvaged after water damage occurs.

If your ceiling drywall can be repaired, a restoration business will usually charge approximately $40-60/square foot for the parts and labor. However, if it needs to be replaced altogether, the restoration company will likely give you a price for the project as a whole rather than on a per square foot basis. The price will be based on the size of the ceiling and the degree of damage that needs to be addressed. Additional damage to other surfaces (walls, flooring, etc.) and areas of your home (other rooms or levels) will clearly increase the cost of the price, but not necessarily by as much as you might imagine. Since the crew is already there to do the work and the materials already need to be ordered, having additional work done at the same time to repair other damaged areas can actually be cost-effective.
