The Big Game is around the corner and emotions can run high for fans during a heated game. According to Thumbtack, the app used by millions of homeowners, hosts should prepare for some damages after the game – most notably drywall repairs, TV repairs and door repairs based on data from millions of home projects across all 50 states. Data shows Phoenix ranks No. 2 for needing the most home repairs after the Super Bowl.
“Ironically enough, while we saw door repairs and drywall repairs spike nationally by 78% and 11% respectively last February, both Los Angeles and Cincinnati were fairly tame compared to other cities.” Said David Steckel, Thumbtack’s Home Expert. “That said, we recommend keeping your area clear of valuables or items you wouldn’t want to see broken, stained, or otherwise impacted by guests.”
Following the Big Game in 2022, these cities saw the most repairs across the country:
- Austin, Texas
- Phoenix, Arizona
- Atlanta, Georgia
- Baltimore, Maryland
- Tampa, Florida
- Fort Myers-Naples, Florida
- Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas
- Washington, D.C.
- Miami-Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
- Charlotte, North Carolina
Door repairs typically cost $150 on average across the country – though replacing a door can end up costing much more. Meanwhile drywall repairs can cost $300 on average, and TV repairs can cost $80 on average. To hire a professional to help with home repairs after the Super Bowl, visit www.thumbtack.com
