"After a brief comunication stumble work moved ahead very rapidly. The work was neat (like having a very nice house guest) and the tradesman was very careful about" dust etc. Went out of his way to attempt restoration of a difficult to find wallpaper as well. Overall, I was very interested in the skill level as well as the quality of execution. Great find for this nasty little mess we had.

" arrived as scheduled. Worked all day. Had to come back a few other days to complete job as our schedules allowed. The plaster work that" was done was perfect. We have a 80+ year old house with plaster walls and you can't tell the difference at all. Would use in an instant if we need plaster work done again.

My sister-in-law uses brite white toothpaste and rubs it into those small holes. No prep, no sanding.

I've used wall liner (it applies like wallpaper only thicker) to cover a multitude of "wall sins" over the years. In my opinion it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. It doesn't look cheap or tacky, it's inexpensive, non-labor intensive and not messy to install.

I used it for the first time about 15 years ago to cover a faux brick tile on my lower kitchen walls that couldn't be removed. It was either tear the wall down or take a chance on $40 worth of wall liner. It did the job beautifully and lasted. Since then I've used it to cover paneling, a badly gouged wall after a kitchen remodel and a wall that looked like a pegboard after floor to ceiling shelving was removed.

Friends and family (and realtors!) have been amazed by the transformation after applying this simple inexpensive product. 

?

Remember, you not only have to remove the popcorn texture, but also redo the ceiling in some other texture.

Price will depend on several factors:

1) how much the contractor you choose hates removing popcorn or textured ceilings - some charge $1 or so/SF extra just because they hate it. There are even some who bid total drywall replacement cheaper than removing the popcorn, so you have to first find contractors who are happy to do that work, or your prices will be out of the realistic range

2) if the popcorn predates about 1990, then it could likely have asbestos in it, which doubles or triples the price, and in many cases uncapsulating it with a spray coating and then removing the drywall entirely is actually cheaper than all the protective measures necessary if it is scraped off. 

3) whether the popcorn is primarily gypsum and vermiculite (comes off REAL easy) or was the plaster of paris variety, which takes a fair amount of soaking to soften it enough to scrape off

4) what type of finish you are replacing it with - if a textured ceiling, slapcoat, knockdown finish or paneling, not real problem. If you want to go with a perfectly smooth ceiling (generally a bad idea as any variations in the drywall on a ceiling surface really shows up dramatically), then it will demand a lot of care in preparing the scraped surface, and a complete surface drywall compound skim coat to smooth out the scrapes and gouges from the removal process.

5) what underlying conditions are - if there is a lot of furniture to move around (should go to adjacent rooms) or cover and work around, high-quality rug or hardwood floor to super-protect or such, will drive cost up.

I have seen costs run from as low as $0.60/SF to $1.25/SF (for removal only). Generally, remove and recoat with a surface texture of some kind (anything but smooth) and paint will run you about $2.50-3.50/SF.

Now the bad news - if asbestos containing, can run from $5-10/SF. Many homeowners in that situation go the other legal route - have it encapsulated with an asbestos-rated sealant by an asbestos contractor, then paint it and leave it for the next homeowner to decide what to do about it. Some contractors encapsulate it and then put a 1/4" thick drywall layer over it - this usually looks like a disaster unless it has a VERY rough textured finish on it, because putting drywall sheet over a rough surface like popcorn invariably means a wavy surface commonly looks like a gently rolling ocean surface.

After practically chasing down because he had a problem returning phone calls, we scheduled to come and do the work we needed (drywall, kitchen floor, and paint), but at the very last minuet he called and said he was unable to do it because he had carple tunnel, or some such problem. Really? Then why ...More did he even give an estimate. claimed he was going to reach out to another contractor on our behalf..........never happened. Thankfully, I found another company Better Home Solutions.....They were GREAT, and much cheaper! If we had not found them, we would have been completely screwed by since we had a timeline, which he wormed out on in a very unprofessional manner. In my opinion, was an overpriced, arrogant contractor. Sooooo glad we did not use him.

I contacted for an estimate for repair of a bedroom ceiling and painting. A previous contractor made such a mess of the taping of the ceiling, we had to cover it with popcorn paint about 10 years ago.
was prompt in his response and immediately started work on the room. The ceiling and walls had ...More to be completely re-taped, the popcorn removed from the ceiling and the entire room painted.
had his crew here each day and the place looks great.

and is a top shelf company. was quick to respond and estimate the project. After I accepted the bid he promptly came to my house and introduced the crew that would be doing the work. We then walked thru the project with the crew.
We talked about any add on-s that may arise ...More and agreed that the cost would change as I added to the project.
The main crew, , and were excellent! They were punctual, neat, friendly and talented. and I worked well together in deciding on some changes that came out just beautiful! and Madyline were expert in the communication area. It was a pleasure doing business with true professionals. I am more that satisfied with the company!

Everything was done very quickly, but thoroughly. The roof was the most important repair and they gave an estimate the day after I contacted them. They squeezed me in and were able to start the roof right away. I needed that, obviously. They then scheduled the rest of the work which was not an emergency and started a few days later. Everything ...More was done in 2 weeks time.
The crew is pleasant, well-mannered and VERY knowledgeable in every aspect. They have generations of the same families working in the crew for over 30 years. They function like a well-oiled machine. They take great pride in their work and left the place cleaner than it was when they arrived. They were always on-time (they were there a few minutes early to set-up and started the work on time). I have a few other properties that I am definitely going to have them repair. The price was exactly right. I got some quotes from other companies that were almost double. I had one company that barely beat their pricing, but when looking further into it, it was only 2 guys that would have been doing the work and they had limited experience. This job needed a CREW like HRS or it never would have been finished. Also, they have a showroom in East which has been there for years (I never noticed it before) so, you know you can always get in touch with them and they aren't going anywhere. Great company, job well-done.

The staff that was punctual and were very professional. They always maintained and cleaned the site when finished at the end of the day. As long as we're in the Capital District we'll always feel secure about buying a house that is not quite up to our standards because we know Kitchen & Bath World will make it so.

Mensur was great to work with. He was helpful and attentive from the start. I spoke with him early in the season and we discussed a date about four weeks from then, , that worked for both of us. Mensur called about a week before to confirm the date. I was very impressed because as busy as he is, he remembered and contacted me, I didn't have ...More to hunt him down. Mensur helped make sure we had everything we needed to be prepared for the job. He was on time each day, took care of my property and was a pleasure to work with. The work was completed on time and we are very happy with the results. We will be calling Mensur again soon!
