"
came to my house on the day I contacted him, even though he was swamped with work the next three weeks. He spent about 20 minutes explaining" that I didn't need the plaster patch work done I thought I did. I just needed to prep the area and repaint. He showed me how to do prep work myself and recommended materials, as well. He didn't charge anything. An incredibly honest man who has clearly built up his business by being genuine and thinking of the customer first.

"Replaced ceiling on large second floor landing; repaired many cracks to plaster on second floor. Repaired bathroom ceiling and several cracks on first floor. Work" took several days and they did a great job! I liked this firm so well I have hired them to paint that second=floor landing plus two other rooms.

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.

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.

and his crew are always polite and professional, you wouldn't even know they are there. we've had a ton of different faux paint work done and he's done it all perfectly. we've also had a bunch of wallpaper hung and that's been great as well. He's also done stain work on our doors and that came out great too.

I installed taped and mudded approximately 3 sheets of new wallboard as part of a master bathroom remodel project but needed a pro to apply texture to match the existing walls in the bathroom. I contacted

for a bid and he responded promptly with a call and came to my home to look at the job and provide a firm bid the next day. His bid was very fair and he even provided tips for me to follow in prepairing the walls properly.

applied the texture to the walls on the date and time scheduled and did a super job knocking it down to match the existing walls perfectly. Once primed and painted I could not even tell which areas were new and which were old wallboard.

We are fairly new to So. CA so it was a pleasant surprise to deal with a contractor who delivered professional, quality service at a very competitive price. Our normal experience has been to pay more and get less. This experience was the exception!

When I call him I know that I can count on him. He finds the problem and handles it with professionalism and with honesty. Its so important to find someone to trust and who you know you can call. My bathroom looks phenomenal, my electrical was fixed same day and when I came home to a flooded basement, he was there in no time to take care of it and put my mind at ease. I would most definitely call him for any problem I should have and will refer him to everyone!!!!

I bought the deal in Sept. I didn't try to get in touch with him until January due to some family health issues. I have been trying to get in touch with him all through January and February through phone calls but haven't heard back.

They were punctual and professional. Their work looked great and if I had any issues they were handled well and timely. We have many animals and they were careful not to let them out the open doors which was important to me. The guys were all very nice and professional.

Everything went well. There was one person here doing the work. Scheduling an appointment was fine. He was on time for the appointment. He had good clean up afterwards. They did not match the paint well so it is slightly off.
