"I was so happy they were able to start the job the week after we accepted the bid. The work is excellent and the pool is beautiful. There were a few glitches." The first day the crew showed up to drain our pool they forgot a part for the pump needed to drain the water. The second time they came they didn't bring all the tile needed so they had to come back to finish that job. Other than those minor screw ups I am very happy with the workmanship, the quality and the service.

drywall installation and repair

Drywall

Many homes today have walls made of drywall. Learn drywall basics, drywall alternatives and get tips for maintaining and repairing drywall.

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.

was extremely professional and flexible, working around my schedule. He showed up promptly & all work was completed with the highest level of professionalism. I highly recommend his craftsmanship & he will definitely be my first call if I ever need any additional work completed in the future.

It took some time to schedule this job. We had an earlier estimate in March from another contractor, which was quite excessive. Also that contractor was not going to be available for some time. We initially contacted in to determine availability, and then followed up in September. He made time ...More to come out in late September to evaluate the job needed, and then we set some tentative dates for his return. The job was completed in about 3 hours. and his associate were very neat, and made every effort to minimize the dust involved. The job did require that part of the popcorn ceiling be scraped and smoothed. We will have return to complete the rest of the ceiling and painting for a modest additional cost.

provided a quote that was half the cost of the next lowest one we received. I believe he did this work for us as a self employed side-job. He was prompt at returning voicemail, and I was able to send him text messages as well. We had cracks showing up in the edges of our ceiling from settling over the years. The job entailed ...More removing the tape and texture at all the cracked locations and smoothing out the top portion of the walls where we believe there was a border at one time that was not properly removed leaving a noticeable on the smooth finished walls. performed the work over the course of 2 evenings after 5pm. Which was much appreciated so neither my wife nor I had to take vacation time. I've repaired popcorn textured ceiling before, but the stuff in a can just doesn't match very well. was able to make the necessary plaster and texture repairs which look extremely good. The patched portions match perfectly with the rest of the ceiling. I can't comment on the cleanliness, because we're planning on replacing the carpet so I told him he didn't have to put down a tarp (which he brought) or bother cleaning up afterwards. We plan on painting ourselves, so we really just needed someone to make the plaster repairs that we're not very good at doing. I would Highly recommend to anyone who just need some plaster work done and don't want to spend a lot of money.

was a man of his word... He returned my call the next day and asked when it would be a good time to get together and look at what needed to be done... He was running a little late from another appointment and he called to tell me (I greatly appreciate that in someone)and gave me another time just a few hours later... He looked ...More over and listened to all I had to say and gave me a price which was much lower than I had anticipated... We discussed the time he would show - which was only 2 days later - He again showed promptly went right to work and before the end of the day I was very happy - especially when he cleaned and swept the areas he had worked in and after inspection was pleased to write him a check... During the process He was quite the gentleman and we talked about may issues, he was just a fun man to talk to and seemed very knowledgeable about general issues (politics, hunting, home repair) - but really mattered most - plastering... which he has been doing from childhood helping his father and grandfather, which were also plasterers. Do not hesitate to hire this individual - This was the first time I had met him, but I asked for some cards of his business and he gave me several, which I have already started to disperse..... Great job completed

was a professional right from the start. He quickly replied to my call for an estimate to plaster a newly built kiva fireplace kit, and immediately came to my house to provide the estimate. After it was provided, the job was scheduled, and the work was completed in 3 days, as promised.
The results are stunning. The variance ...More plaster finish he created adds elegance, class, and charm to the space, and it's exactly what I envisioned for the room. I wish there was a category of A+ in this review because the quality of his work is superb.
He's a true craftsman, and I would recommend him to anyone who wants the quality and class.

Cliff was very professional. He responded quickly to my email, arrived at the designated time, and maintained a very neat working area. He matched the fan pattern exactly and thoroughly cleaned the working area before leaving.

This contractor is one of the most responsive that we have ever worked with, after a ton of experience dealing with many different kinds of contractors. was so professional, respectful and courteous. He sent the team to work on our home and they arrived and completed the entire job very promptly as he was aware off the need ...More to finish the job before a storm was forecasted to arrive. Also, was very thoughtful to follow up with is after the job was completed to ensure we were completely satisfied with the outcome.
