"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, 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.

-Jennifer P.

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 the end result and we will recommend
and his crew to our friends and family.

Drywall and plaster

Knowing how your interior walls are constructed and what they are made of can help you take better care of your home, as well as provide effective maintenance. You can make small repairs yourself, but the more extensive the job the more likely you'll need a drywall repair contractor to make the wall smooth again.

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.

They were tidy, quick, and professional. They stayed on the job. They did an outstanding job. They were awesome. I receive a card every year, so I think he is loyal to me.

Severe water damage caused me to make repairs to an 88 year old Chicago bungalow with original lath and plaster.

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.

This is our second project with A1-
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
. 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-

Since our first project with them came out stellar, we elected to go with them again 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.
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
kept us constantly informed on the progress and process and how it all would progress.
The thing about A1-
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
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.

Without a doubt, this is the remodeling team you want to hire for your project!
My renovation situation was rather challenging, as I live in LA year-round but rent the Chicago condo I had previously lived in. Unfortunately, I had some water damage from the unit above me, and as a result, decided to do a major gut rehab on my unit that included new hardwood floors throughout the unit, and completely gutting my kitchen, which included tearing down a galley kitchen wall to open up the space and allow for a breakfast bar. I met with 6 different contractors, and

Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
was by far the most knowledgeable, straightforward, and honest of the bunch. During his initial quote, he informed me of the potential challenges that might come up due to the fact that it's an older building with lots of structural and electrical quirks, and he even talked to my building engineer prior to the quote to make sure my renovation plans could be met. The other renovation "experts" sent over design consultants without construction knowledge who tried to make it seem like this was a quick and easy job, but I knew better and
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
's thorough approach and fair pricing convinced me his team would do the job right.
Since I live 3,000 miles away, communication was key to this project, and
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
did not disappoint. We were in constant communication via phone, text, and email, and
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
even made himself available during off hours to accommodate my schedule. He made some great suggestions as far as layout and finishes, and was able to navigate the somewhat difficult and intrusive building engineer of 40+ years (sorry!) to finish the job on time and on budget. I can't say he did it to expectation, because he went ABOVE AND BEYOND what my expectations were for the project, including some last-minute renovations to my bathrooms that weren't even part of the initial job. The place looks incredible - I've received so many compliments on it, I'm a little jealous that I'll be renting the place instead of living in it!

Let me start by saying my husband is a wonderful guy, but home improvement and repairs are not listed under his top skills. So if I want to eliminate his frustration and our arguing, I hire people. My mantra: "It's cheaper than a divorce." So I was so happy to find
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
on Angie's List!
I needed someone to do a variety of tasks to make our new apartment more space efficient and
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
fit the bill.I got an instant response to my phone inquiry and an hourly estimate based upon what I wanted done.
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
was at our house on time and started working immediately. Very efficient. He took down the closet organizers, packed them in his truck and drove to our apartment in Chicago, where he began his work. (You are paying by the hour. So my husband and I went to home depot, got the materials we anticipated he would need the night before he arrived. As a precaution, I asked my dad t.o hang out with me while the work was being done, just in case an additional trip to the hardware store was needed. In that way, I could still direct the work to be done while Dad ran to the store. Turns out that no additional materials were needed.)
I found
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
to be very knowledgeable about the old electricity system in our building, plaster walls, etc. So he knew just what was needed to get everything done the right way. I booked a day and a half of time for everything on my punch list to be done.
So guess what, my husband was so pleased with all that
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
did, that he created an additional list of to-dos! So, I know that I will be using
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
again soon. I will be asking for
Chicago Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
specifically, as my husband and I really liked his work, his punctuality, his suggestions about how to do things and his "can do" attitude.
- Victoria H.

the gentleman did a great job, beautiful. but took 2 hours longer because of the moisture, unfortunately they didnt' communicate that and when I went to check I set up a fan to help dry the room. the contractor said that he wouldn't charge me for the extra time.
I did have some clean up and I will need to sand and finish the walls and apply kilz before I paint. But the walls look good.
