Guy Purcella

Lead Instructor

Hello, my name is Guy Purcella and I am a 40 year drywall professional. I grew up doing drywall as my dad did it most of his life. I spent roughly 20 years doing new construction and the last 20 years running my own business called Mr Patch Drywall where I honed my drywall repair skills, texture matching and business building, creating a successful 5 star rated business. I started a YouTube Channel called That Kilted Guy DIY to pass on my skills and now have over 300,000 subscribers and over 33 million views. I created this drywall academy to further pass on those skills to others who want to quit fighting the process of drywall mudding, texturing and hanging drywall. I look forward to helping you, and getting to know you. Feel free to contact me and let me know the type of training you are looking for.
