PatchMaster’s unique franchise model, founded in 2017, has taken the industry by storm by providing fast, affordable, and top-quality drywall repair services for minor jobs that traditional contractors and large restoration outfits typically avoid.

With a focus on exceptional customer service and state-of-the-art technology, PatchMaster consistently provides high-quality services to homeowners, renters, landlords, and businesses.

A strategic partnership with MPK Equity Partners in 2022 has positioned PatchMaster for significant growth within the $84 billion drywall industry and the vast $394 billion home improvement market, solidifying its status as a national leader.

PatchMaster’s appeal as a franchise opportunity extends beyond its market positioning, offering best-in-class training, proprietary technology, and ongoing support.
