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.

I couldnt be happier with the work they did. They even removed ceiling fan & reinstalled it. They did the work in 2 days & were so nice. I would highly recommend them to everyone who needs plaster work of any kind.

are very professional. They did a fantastic job and threw in a little extra work, fixing the area underneath my window that had gotten moisture damage.

and I go back to post
New Orleans Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
2005 when I used him to install 2 new ceilings after I lost a partial roof in the storm. I was extremely happy with his work back then and the ease of dealing with him. No mail or telephone service after the storm, we did the whole job via email and credit cards because I live out of state. I was happy to see

was still in business this year when I needed him again. Same old
New Orleans Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
, always answers the phone, gave me an estimate within one week, even found additional work that needed done (the walls) making it easier to all do it all at the same time. I always appreciate his thoroughness. Was easy to communicate with via email, always responds to communications. Was willing to work within a 3 week time-frame of when the tenant would be out of town and before I would arrive in town, exceptional customer service! Callled me when he had any questions about the job ie paint colors. Was very accommodating about payment. He even re-plastered a small landing area that needed it but was outside of our contract. Oh did I mention that all of the tenants furniture and belongs were still in the apartment when the work was performed? I love working with people like

and would highly recommend him to anybody.

was very easy to work with. He responded quickly to requests for an estimate. As the work became more extensive (!) he decided to review the job in person, rather than giving me a telephone estimate. He was very flexible about when he could attend - there were some scheduling issues with the other trades working on the job and my own travel plans. He was on time for every appointment.
They worked efficiently and did provide drop cloths to protect the wood floors and furniture. I shall certainly use them again.
- Alistair S.

It could not have gone better.

essentially did all the work himself. He stuck to his estimate, even though the job became more complicated than was expected. He was courteous to the tenants in the house, and worked long hours. My tenants have been raving about the bathrooms ever since. I even decided to give

an extra $200 based on how happy I was with his work. The pictures speak for themselves.

did great work. He was reliable, professional and courteous. We called him for an estimate and he responded promptly. He arrived in the mornings when he said he would and worked to keep the house clean so that we could live amidst the construction. He communicated with us about the job and was always wanted us to be pleased, and we were. He was thorough and careful and we appreciate his work very much.
