"Mr.
did a nice job. he fit us in because we need to get the repair complete before finishing the installation of the kitchen. He was neat" and cleaned up after the repair. He is self employed and can be hard to reach because he is working, but he called back in a reasonable amount of time. I have recommended him and would use him again.

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.

Dear Angie: Who can I hire to remove a popcorn ceiling? How is it done and what will it cost? — Jonathan H. of Woodland Hills, California, and Marcia E. of Altamonte Springs, Florida

Are those small Styrofoam balls on your ceiling bugging you? You can remove them yourself, or hire a drywall pro.

You may prefer the lived-in look, but a hole in the wall makes your home look a little too lived in. A pro tells how to repair a hole yourself and save money.

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.

Very responsive, got a call back the same day so that was great! Gave that an A.
I asked to get a quote for my ceiling and, I thought oddly, was given one over the phone. I've never had anyone quote a job without seeing and measuring the scope of work.
The quote was much higher than I expected given the price quotes that I had seen from reviews here. For example one from late last year was less than $1.00/sq foot and I was quoted over 2x that much. Maybe prices *have* gone up that much, but between the expense and not actually seeing the job site... I'm going to look elsewhere.

I just want to rave about my experience with

. He contacted me extremely quickly after I sent my request for estimate, and provided me with a few dates that would work. One of those dates was the very same day, and he was able to come out that afternoon and start the repairs. Definitely would use again!

and his team were extremely dependable, conscientious and did an excellent job with the repairs. They always arrived on time and cleaned up every evening. They went above and beyond and repaired small cracks that weren't on the original list and even fixed my AC drain line when it started leaking mid-project. I would trust them with any repairs and recommend them completely.

was very personable. He had to delay the original start day due to a backup on a previous job , but communicated this immediately. He assured us that the work would be completed with the time frame we had originally set up and despite the delay he finished his work in our house ahead of schedule. Each day he arrived promptly and was quick and efficient in completing his work. He was willing to work around furniture and assisted in moving large pieces as needed between rooms. He was respectful and saw to it that furniture was covered and protected and made sure each day that all areas were left clean and that his materials were picked up. He was attentive to our requests and went back to re-do areas that we thought needed additional attention or extra paint. We have had many contractors over the years and some bad experiences but

The design, which was very unique and creative, was executed to perfection. The two deck tiers and patio included complementary earth

installed deck rails that coordinated with decking colors and the results were incredible. Sitting on the patio or by the fire pit feels very much like staying at a high end resort in a very forested area.

checked out a ceiling fan for me that was not working correctly and also installed a dimmer switch in a china cabinet. In the past he built me a beautiful cottage style entertainment center. He has a Facebook page where you can see some of his work. He does an awesome job. Would highly recommend him whether for small jobs or remodeling jobs.

Took 3 days for a return phone call requesting an appointment for an estimate. When call was returned and I tried to schedule an appointment, I was told that he "might", "maybe" show up for a scheduled appointment, it would depend on how busy he was that day.

arrives to do the work on time and even sends me a text when he's on his way. I've used him 4 times and will continue to use him. My daughter is buying a home and will also be using him. He estimates accurately how long it will take to complete the job. His work is excellent quality, and I've been very happy.
