    Depends on the space and access, ladders and scaffolds will be your best bet.

    Don't shortcut with safe scaffolding. BTDT Once you have the scaffoling in place, do all the prep work needed, including the primer before moving the scaffolding.

    Setting up scaffolding in a stairway can be a tricky situation. Make sure that whatever you do, it's safe.

    I will usually put a ladder against the wall up high and set the bottom on a lower step. The ladder cannot be straight up and down, give it some lean. Then run a plank (2 x 12 or aluminum plank) from that tall ladder to a shorter step ladder at the top of the stairs or on a landing.

    Work slowly and carefully. Be aware of your surroundings and where you're standing.

    If you have questions about how to do the drywall patching, just let us know.
