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.


Plaster reviews in Los Angeles


35We had a complete overhaul of our pool a couple of years ago by these guys and I'm still angry about it. In a nutshell, the time they said it would take to complete the project was off by several weeks. The job manager NEVER showed up to keep an eye on things. He thought work was done that was not. He was ready to resurface the pool when the plumbing wasn't even installed. They left the construction garbage piled up in my yard and wondered why I was unhappy about it. When they refilled to pool following the job, they left the water hose on the bottom of the pool which somehow made an ugly pattern in the bottom that is still there. The tiles they put around the pool are stained after just this short time. The pavers around the pool were not put in right, leaving a hump in they backyard (since fixed by another company).
Why did I not give these guys an F?
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the founder of the company. He came by and saw what a mess his guys left as well as seeing that the work which was supposed to be done, wasn't. He got on the case and straightened thing out as much has he could. He even follow up and came by a year later just to check in. If he had been running things, this would be a total thumbs up review. But he wasn't.
Based on the unnecessary drama, the lack of communication, the lack of supervision and the mediocre work making itself clear a couple of years out, stay away from these guys.
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
not withstanding, they're not worth the trouble.
- Maja V.

The whole job went amazingly well. I can not recommend
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
highly enough. It did take a while to book the job but this is due to
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
being a small operation and his policy of only taking one job at a time so he can be on site the entire time. So when you do hire them be patient at first, it is WELL WORTH the wait. Once we set a start date
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his small crew of plaster artists showed up on time every day, they were very professional and respectful and a pleasure to deal with. In fact most days we ended up a bit late to work because we enjoyed chatting with
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
in the morning. The man has a deep knowledge of your home's plaster work and all other aspects of old homes. I think in the week they were there we learned a ton about our house and how it was built. So as I said, we hired them to fix the walls in our living, dining 3 bedrooms and a hallway. The original walls were in, what I would consider, rough shape. But
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
reassured us they were really not bad and they would have them looking great in no time. It took about a week to finish the job and each day we were amazed to come home and see the progress made. One of the best parts about their work was how clean they were. Each day they left the room very tidy and once they finished a room and moved on to the next, the room was spotless. In the end the job was done to the highest standard of quality on time and at the quoted price. We recently finished painting the interior of the house and it looks like a brand new house, it's that good. There are a few
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
of the house we decided not to work on at this time and a new window project in the future that will require plaster work. You can bet that
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
will be the only one we trust to do the work. In fact, I can't wait until the time comes so we can talk with him again. A true pleasure to work with, an artist of the highest order.
- Matthew M.

I've hired
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
three times before - once to patch missing stucco, once to repair water damaged plaster, and once to patch a couple big interior holes. Every time he's been excellent. This time was no exception.
We removed an old window to install a french door in a bedroom of our 1925 house.
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
came over to give us an estimate, and recommended we hire his guys to demo out the old stucco around the window in the most efficient way possible, to make it easier to replace. We agreed, and the next day,
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
came over and had the stucco out in about an hour. They stuck around to help us out with removing the rest of the wall, and with framing in some new studs for a rough opening for the door. Having the extra hands helped a TON, and they were extremely gracious and relaxed about working longer to help us out.
We ended up with a bigger patch area than expected, mostly due to having to replace some termite-eaten studs and framing. The final area ended up being about a foot to 18 inches around the door's opening, and
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out that same day to give us the official stucco and plaster estimate. He gave us a written estimate of $1700, and the guys came out two days later to do the work. They were done in less than two days, worked around the deck framing we had put up without any grumbling, and even worked to spackle up some cracks and holes that had opened up elsewhere on the same wall.
Irritatingly, the next day, our electrician cut back a 10x2 inch chunk of stucco in that same area. I called
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
to see if he could take a look. He came by while I wasn't around, and emailed me saying he could patch it immediately for $50. Obviously, I agreed, and when I got home it was good as new.
B & J is one of the best contractors I work with - and I work with a lot, fixing up my 90 year old house. Every job is smooth and affordable.
- Christian B.

This was the fourth time we've hired
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
of B&J Plastering to do plaster work in my 1925 lath and plaster house after some water intrusion/leaks and for general maintenance. This time,
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
repaired cracks due to settlement in every room of the house. He also repaired/replastered an area where we have had repeated leaks due to a leaky upstairs deck. In addition to the cracks in the ceilings/walls,
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
inspected the decking, waterproofed the entire perimeter of the deck and repaired some cracks/holes in the stucco walls and around the drain duct where he suspected water was intruding.
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
is prompt, neat and clean, very reasonably priced and a great guy to boot. We consider him a friend at this point. We recommend him without reservation.
- Deborah T.

These guys were great!!! Of all the estimates we received,
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the only one who gave me a written estimate. The price was reasonable. He and his guys were professional, great people, and did a fantastic job on stuccoing our house. They were efficient and it looks great! They came when they told us they would, did a wonderful job, and cleaned up really well after. These guys know what they are doing, and they do it perfectly!! Besides doing a good job, they are really nicenpeopel!! I'd highly recommend them and would definitely use them again!
- Diane M.

This review is way late but actually being late makes it better. Nine months after they did the work I have an even better appreciation of their work. I've remodeled two kitchens, two bath rooms and a living room, of all the subs I've used
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew was be far the best experience. They are prompt, good humored, and exceptionally good at what they do. Of all the people who have worked for me they are the true craftsmen. Their plaster work is amazing and completely matched the original from sixty-two years ago.
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
is a great lovable character and his sons obviously revere their dad and care as much as he does about the work.
- Mark R.

I originally received a quote by phone / email. Being that I'm not comfortable with quotes site unseen, I asked for someone to come out and visually inspect. I don't like having estimates change after work has started because nobody actually did a proper visual inspection. The owner came out for a visual inspection then provided a quote. The quote did change but I was ok with that because it was based on an 'eyes on' review. The quote was based on all materials being provided by me. The work the door installer did left some things undone and the workers (2) that came out fixed everything. I told
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
I wanted everything 'done' and done right. There were 2 visits. On the first, the guy patched the exterior stucco around the door, correcting the flashing paper that was not properly tucked in by the installer and a couple of other items. He also primed the door for painting and patched the interior plaster. The second visit, a few days later, another guy did the stucco texturing to match the existing, painted the exterior stucco and door, replaced and painted the interior baseboard that was damaged by the door installer and painted the interior around the door, including door trim.
I would recommend
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
. If you want a job done (completely) and done right, tell the prospective contractor. I've had bad experiences before and I'm glad to say that I did not have a bad one with
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
- TIM C.

Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his company,
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
was fantastic. When I called, he said he was doing a job nearby and came over in about 15 minutes. That was the first experience with the punctuality and professionalism of
Los Angeles Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
. When he said he was going to do something, he did it and finished it when he said he would finish it.
Very easy going, and pleasant to deal with.
As with any job, the owner thought, "maybe we ought to try this instead", or "I'd like to change this". No problem. The next time you looked, it was changed.
Very nice, thorough, friendly crew.
His price was highly competitive. I don't know if it was the lowest, but at $11,400, it was within a few hundred dollars one way or the other.
They said if we found anything that needed touching up, they'd be happy to stop by and take care of it, but honestly, there hasn't been a reason to call.
Completely satisfied.
