"These guys are fantastic to work with. We just did a bathroom project with them and are now scheduled to do a 2nd remodel project on a bedroom. Two things that" set these guys apart -- 1) is very responsive and detailed; it was a breath of fresh air to have such quick back and forth compared to other contractors I've dealt with. 2) The two guys that did the work were meticulous with a great eye for detail. Overall, great work product and a pleasure to have in our home.

drywall installation and repair

Drywall

Many homes today have walls made of drywall. Learn drywall basics, drywall alternatives and get tips for maintaining and repairing drywall.

Plastering, Painting - Interior

Dear Angie: How important is it to repair plaster before repainting? Our ceilings have peeling paint that we’re pretty sure was caused by past water damage. Since the water problem is no longer an issue, can we simply repaint the ceilings or should we first repair any underlying plaster damage? – Sara S., Elgin, Illinois

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.

Overall, it went very well. We had the work done about a month ago and waited to leave a review until after we painted the room. The room is now painted and you cannot tell that there was any patchwork completed, which is a sign of good quality work. The repair area was plaster and the crew did a good job cleaning up all of the dust.

The owner, was prompt in coming out to our house to look at the work we needed and give us an estimate. He took measurements of everything and provided us with a detailed estimate of the work. He was honest about how soon they would be able to start too. The men who came out to do the work were meticulous, knowledgable, polite, ...More and very hard workers. They did not work any half days and did not take days off during the week. They worked straight through until the project was finished. The results are beautiful! The work was finished early and on budget. We will absolutely use in the future.

is great to work with! Very responsive and professional, and the price was very reasonable. He and his crew painted our entire house (two stories + basement) in a little less than a week. They even worked late into the evening a couple of nights to ensure that the job was completed by the promised date. We are very happy with ...More the end result and we will recommend and his crew to our friends and family.

Severe water damage caused me to make repairs to an 88 year old Chicago bungalow with original lath and plaster. , Sr made himself available on multiple occasions for several insurance adjusters to explain not only his scope of work, but the painting requirements for raw plaster as well. , Sr, his son ...More and a third skilled plasterer arrived on time and completed the project in a timely fashion. I observed the worksite each day and it was clean. I now have fully restored ceilings and walls in my home in order to complete the other repairs.

and his team did amazing work! The ceiling in my living room/dining room was badly cracked, and they skim-coated it to look brand new. The final result was perfection. My painter mentioned that that was the best work he had ever seen.
was very responsive and personable and a pleasure to work with. ...More I was thrilled with the work and the price.

This is our second project with A1- . We selected them last summer for a kitchen redo, which they completed with excellent results. (You can find our review of the kitchen work A1- did here on Angie's List.)
Since our first project with them came out stellar, we elected to go with them again ...More for some work on our bedroom. Like our last project, all went according to plan. A1- again exceeded our expectations with the work that was done. kept us constantly informed on the progress and process and how it all would progress.
The thing about A1- that I think is really something to call out is the quality of the work. The attention to detail by the exceptional crew is outstanding. They keep an eye on not just the big things, but all of the small things, caulking, patching, painting, repainting until it looks perfect. We will probably want to have them work on our basement when we look to redo that as well.
Am I being a fanboy? Probably. But when you've had prior, sloppy work done on your home and the stairwell ceiling (for example) wasn't done right, and the A1- guys come in and make it look perfect, you kind of have to be impressed with the quality of the work they do.
It's possible you could find someone a little cheaper to do the work. But if you really want something done in the end that will look perfect, you definitely want to go with A1- .

They came out and they were very prompt. They gave us an estimate. They're very good. They did a very nice job. They were very thorough. We're happy with the estimate. It was a two-day job. I would use this provider again in the future.
