" , one of the owners, was extremely responsive showing up for an estimate within 24 hours of my call. His repair person did a really nice" job repairing the cracks. His painting crew came in and did a superb job painting. We were concerned because we recently put in all new windows with new trim and the crew did a wonderful job keeping paint of the naturally-finished wood. They covered everything we asked for, were polite, responsive and just really nice people to have around for a day. The painting was completed in a day with an hour return the next morning for a couple of areas that needed a second coat. Looks great -- the obtained the correct colors and finish as ordered for the walls and ceilings, using a high quality brand paint for the job. The only slip up was the repairman was supposed to call before returning the second day, but he showed up unannounced when I was not there to let him in, so couldn't complete the work on the day was supposed to be completed. immediately responded to the problem and had it finished the very next day.

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.

We often use them if we need -type of work. We like to use Sandy. She's done some work with pipes, a sagging ceiling and some other things. Their prices are very reasonable. You pay for a home visit just on the first visit and after that, you don't have to pay that anymore because you're a repeat customer, so the cost is less.

The work he did on drywall was well done and was careful with details. The installations showed know-how. Its is just he would do some work then disappear for months. I asked him for bids, and he had no idea what to say. He never answers his calls or e-mails. I would not trust him to do house surgery like window repair because who knows when he ...More will show up. On the days he did finally agree to show up and finish the job he was massively late.

Our overall experience was good but they were short in staff and took a long time to get what started out to be a relatively project. It took about a month or so for not being able to use the room just because this one person running the company and people are quitting on her. It was like difficulty of people to turn off when ...More they were supposed to turn off. They did a good job but their punctuality and staying up to schedule was not good. The quality of their work was excellent. She made a lot of apologies that had to do with scheduling and people quitting. They always have different excuses because of that. Price was good.

It was a pleasure working with & Texture Inc. came out and provided an estimate on the cost for the work that was better than the other competitors I contacted. He was helpful in scoping out the nature of the work to be done, and described in detail the process for the ...More install, as well as the amount of time it would take.
was flexible in scheduling the work to meet my time frame. On the appointed day, his team arrived on time. The entire crew were courteous and professional. They took care to the area where the work was to be done, as well as the hallway from the front door to the basement.
The & Texture Inc. team kept me apprised each day of what work was going to be done that day, and walked me through a visual inspection of what had been completed.
The quality of the work and mudding of seams is excellent. Over 20 holes were cut in the ceiling to accommodate recessed lighting. The cuts are all tight and look great. The work around the basement duct work and support beam also looks great. The texture paint applied to the ceiling matches the existing texture on the walls beautifully.The ceiling installed by has transformed the dated drop ceiling look of the basement room into a contemporary recreational space.

It's hard to quantify how this job went because and her crew were all very pleasant to work with, and the work they did was done very well, but I was unhappy with the execution at the end of the job. I will say at the outset that some of these issues were due to poor communication, which is as much my fault as it was ...More 's.
When we had the initial quote done, we asked for: 1) wallpaper removal and wall prep for painting in the master bedroom; and 2) wallpaper removal and wall prep in the living room. That quote was for approximately $1200, and I sent the requested deposit in shortly after getting the quote via email. The person I was corresponding with via email was called " ", and he soon stopped responding. After emailing him twice or three times, I finally called . advised that had been let go because he was a seasonal employee. After that, was very, very responsive over email and I didn't have any additional issues on that end.
The reason I was attempting to contact was because I wanted to get a quote for some additional work to be done on the job. We had just purchased the house and I realized I just didn't have the time to paint the living room or bedroom myself, and my husband wanted the foyer wall painted. So I asked to do an additional quote for painting those areas. She agreed to provide it and said she'd review the areas and provide the quote on the first day of the job. I said that was fine. This is where the miscommunication occurred, I think, because thought I was only asking for a quote for half of the living room walls when I was asking for the full living room, we talked about wall texture but I don't think we talked ENOUGH about it, and I think there was just a general vagueness to our discussions (which never should have happened). Nevertheless, I received an adjusted quote from for approximately $2200, which I accepted.
During the course of wallpaper removal in the bedroom, we discovered some previous damage that required a lot of work. I knew that this was a possibility and told to go ahead and remedy it. Again, I knew that this would increase the cost of the job. Unfortunately, during the sanding process, some of the drywall in our master bathroom started to separate and I asked to please take care of this issue as it was caused by their work. I told her I'd take care of repainting the area. To her credit, she agreed to do this and did a great job at patching the cracked drywall. So we really appreciated her flexibility in that regard.
Ultimately, the wallpaper removal and painting in the living room, and the painting in the foyer, came out great. I have no real issues with those areas. My issues are with the master bedroom. was candid when she said that the job ran longer than she anticipated because of the extra work necessary in the master bedroom. Frankly, that was 's issue and not mine; I'm not the one who does scheduling for her and I don't know what kind of other jobs she's got going on. The master bedroom work was completed to my satisfaction, but the bedroom was left a shambles. Drywall dust was basically in every nook and cranny (the doors, windows, and radiator covers were absolutely filthy with it), and there was spackle (or whatever it's called) all over the place (thankfully this is able to be cleaned off with a razor or a little elbow grease), including our light fixtures and the toilet.
I have to say that the guys on 's crew - in particular - were excellent. worked long hours and never complained, and the work he did was excellent. So was the painting work done in the living room, which I believe was done by and . So that's why I say that I'm conflicted about how to grade this review. Based on the quality of the work alone, it should be an "A" review. But factoring in the non-responsiveness by , the communication issues between me and , the unexpectedly increased cost of the job (which - again to her credit - did negotiate with me and I feel we came to a fair price), and the filthy master bedroom, I had to reduce the overall grade to a B. I would use 's company for painting again in the future.

It was afternoon by the time the electrician was done. As I had just painted all my walls, I simply couldn't stand looking at the gaps in the surrounding the junction box, I wanted it fixed now! But who could I get to come right over and do this small repair? from Woehlr ...More , that's who.
He said he was working in the area and would stop over in an hour or so to see the damage. When he showed up he made the repair on the spot. He returned the next morning to make sure the patch dried well and applied texture to match my walls. Great service, a seamless repair, a pleasant guy, and all for a minimal price. I definitely recommend him.

I am extraordinarily pleased with the work done for us. My son had damaged our wall, and we botched the repair so the wall looked terrible. AYWP saw the space, explained exactly what they were going to do, and did it. They also touched up the paint in some other areas of the room. You can't tell that there was ever a problem, which is exactly how ...More it should be. The team was extremely personable.
While AYWP was here, we had them provide a quote for additional work (our older home needs a lot of help), including the removal of some ancient paneling which will be more complicated. Based upon what they did today as well as the honest assessment of the project, I would have no hesitation hiring them for the job.
