Arroyo Grande Drywall Contractors from people just like you.

installed my attic in a single day, after some of the other contractors I had asked had given me estimates of "1 week" and "we" don't work weekends". ONE day, and for a great price as well-- lower than any of the competitors. The workers were all courteous and definitely knew what they were doing. When I asked "could we do this or this" they gave honest and knowledgeable answers. I'd definitely recommend this contractor again.

, the owner, made a special trip to my house at the end of his work day to give me an estimate for the work and to schedule the repair. His" representative,
, showed up in the morning at the exact time scheduled.
is very experienced. He was goodnatured, polite, patient, and understanding. He performed all aspects of the repairs as requested and answered all questions.The finished walls looked better than expected. The repairs were in difficult, owt-of-the-way places, but that did not affect the time to complete, the quality of the work, or the cost.

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.

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.

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.


Drywall Repair And Installation reviews in Arroyo Grande


The consolation prior to work being done was professional and he let me know exactly what they could and couldn't do (ie. paint the space as well). Lovely man with good information and knowledge. When the team came to do the work they were efficient, and didn't leave any mess. The work looks great and you can't even see were the hole was! I will definitely use them again.

does good quality work and knows what he is doing. In addition, he is very consistent in his communications and goes out of his way to ensure he is on the same page as his clients. He is also very prompt and meets his commitments. The last thing I'll say about
Arroyo Grande Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
is that he goes out of his way to ensure the customer is happy.
- jason P.

.I chose
Arroyo Grande Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
off the List because they were a father and son team and did all their own work. I trusted that with their name on their business that they would execute a great job and stand behind their name. They did exactly that.
The price was fair. They were punctual, clean and very easy to get along with. They informed me on why certain cracks happened and how they were going to fix them.
After the the job, (even though I plan on repainting the whole ceiling) you could hardly tell where the work was done it blended in so well.
I would definitely use
Arroyo Grande Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
again for any future work, and I have already recommended them to some friends.

was great. He was very efficient with his work and extremely professional. He solved some difficult kitchen problems for us and did a beautiful job tiling our backsplash and floor for less than we expected. Would use him again.

Working with

Arroyo Grande Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
is always easy. When I contacted
Arroyo Grande Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
(McGinnins) and asked if they did that kind of thing, he said yes. We sent him some pictures and he came out to give an estimate about a week later. While the original start date of
Arroyo Grande Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
2 couldn't be done because our tile order did not come in, we rescheduled for Feb 9th. They showed up on Monday Feb. 9th and began putting concreted board framing on the bricks of the living room fireplace. By Wednesday they were able to paint the entire room in one day. The tile guy started on Thursday and was finished by the following Tuesday. They followed our instructions about how to lock up when they left each day and the tile guy even worked a little on Valentines day to get the job done sooner. It looks great and we are completely satisfied. They really did a nice job! I have used

for about 4 jobs now and each time they do a wonderful job for a great price.

The tech came in on the schedule day and explain to us exactly what he was going to do. Remove all the old tape, clean the area and install new tape, then re-mud the area. They also installed new flex tape to the ceiling this way if the
Arroyo Grande Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
would move for any reason, the tape would not tear again. They explain they usually use this material on ceilings. They laid down drop cloths on the floor and covered all the furniture that could not be moved out of the way. After all the repair work, the contractor removed all the used material and cleaned up everything, even vacuumed the area.
- James M.

They were very easy to work with and were extremely accommodating to my schedule, despite the fact they are located in Akron and I'm in Chardon. They completed the work quickly and did a good job. My one complaint is that the estimates and final invoice I received were emailed pictures of handwritten estimates and were difficult to read. But I could call the owner with questions and he was always very responsive.
- Virginia M.

The work behind the toilet turned out beautiful.
Arroyo Grande Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
even put mud in the holes from insulation installment in the garage. The shower stall was a bigger job than I had money for. It will have to wait. The price was fair.
