In this special episode of If Walls Could Talk, W&C Group Publisher Jill Bloom speaks with Drywall by Design’s Owner Scott Montgomery. This Canadian-contractor, who is now an important influencer with his social media posts on new tools, talks about the excited products he saw at this year’s BUILD24.

For 12 years, Montgomery has been reporting on various mediums about new trends and products in the industry. From there, things grew over the years. His handle is “DrywallbyDesign.”

What are things Montgomery would have told himself back then? “I didn’t know about certain specs for jobs. ‘How do I do it?’ Well, sales reps help and I still lean on their assistance,” he said. The point to be more direct is that many contractors are too shy or proud to ask for advice when approaching a complex project, he said.
