Our Story

Welcome to PatchitUP, the leading drywall repair franchise dedicated to providing exceptional service and transforming spaces one patch at a time. Our franchise was born out of a passion for craftsmanship, exceeding the customer experience and a desire to offer reliable and efficient solutions for all your drywall repair needs.

PatchitUP was founded by Peter Kourounis and Ghulam Rasul, two experienced professionals in the home services industry who recognized the growing demand for high-quality drywall repair services. They saw an opportunity to create a business that would not only deliver outstanding results but also prioritize customer satisfaction and convenience.

With that combined expertise and a commitment to excellence, we set out to build a network of PatchitUP franchises that would revolutionize the drywall repair industry. They understood that repairing damaged drywall is not just about fixing a hole or a crack; it’s about restoring the beauty and functionality of a space, whether it’s a residential home or a commercial property.

Transformative Drywall Repair Services for a Seamless Experience

PatchitUP started as a local drywall repair service in New York, quickly gaining a reputation for its attention to detail, professionalism, and exceptional customer service. As the demand for their services grew, they realized the potential to expand their business and share their expertise with others who shared their passion for business ownership, and scaling a simple business model.

By franchising PatchitUP, they were able to bring their proven methods, industry knowledge, and support to aspiring entrepreneurs across the country. Today, PatchitUP franchises can be found in various cities, offering the same high-quality drywall repair and drywall installation services that have made us a trusted name in the industry.

What sets PatchitUP apart is our commitment to delivering exceptional results while providing a efficient and hassle-free experience for our customers.
