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.

Are those small Styrofoam balls on your ceiling bugging you? A popcorn ceiling removal project is the answer. You can remove popcorn ceilings yourself, or hire a drywall pro.

Drywall, Asbestos Removal

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

Angie's Answers

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.

sheets of plywood over the joists in the attic, he cut them to size and around obstacles and secured them with screws. He used good materials and didn't buy the cheaper parts and installed everything paying attention to every detail. He treated my home like it was his own.

Everything went like clockwork. I can't praise

's two sons showed up on time and were very friendly and professional. I showed them the work to be done. They covered what needed to be covered and set to work. One worked in the garage and the patio while the other one started in the house. I was very pleased with the cleanup they did after the work was completed. I have since had the rooms painted and the painters commented on how well

repairs looked. I would use them again.

Arroyo Grande Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
is very professional & skilled at his craft. He was flexible in doing an estimate at my home and provided some suggestions for the work, but didn't pressure into any extra work. His team was punctual in arriving & very clean in their work. Our den had a texture, which instead of trying to match, he let us know that the best approach was to re-skim the ceiling and texture it right. While the cost was a bit higher, the end result of the repair came out very nice I feel that it was the right decision.
&While the job ran over 1 day due to the weather,

was quick to inform of the change. He kept our home clean & tidy while doing his work, moving furniture & properly wrapping to avoid getting the area messy.

's team also brought a couple deliveries into my house when they arrived while they were working, which was much appreciated, especially since the weather was poor that week. Coming home to dry packages was just a nice touch.

was excellent from beginning to end. He gave me an estimate same day as I requested it. His crew started work within a few days of agreeing on the estimate. They were all friendly, trustworthy, and did excellent work. They always showed up on time and finished everything as quickly as possible. They cleaned up after completion and went out their way to be helpful. If you need
