"Communications with this company were always pleasant and complete. Promises were kept, and we always knew what was to be done and when to expect it. They were prompt," professional, pleasant, and it was a pleasure to have them in our home. They were careful to respect us and our property, always being available for any questions we had about what they were doing or other things we might want done in the future. These are the type of people we would like to have as neighbors, and we are planning to call them again for additional work.

"The job was done with minimal damage to the ceiling, and a speedy and excellent clean-up of the area. The work they did was right on target to access the plumbing" problem. They were very professional and were able to speculate on what plumbing work appeared to need fixing when the plumbers arrive. This was a great relief to us to have our project started in such a professional way, since we were quite worried about what needed to be done. They will be returning to fix the ceiling after the plumbers are done. We have had good recommendations from another contractor about their work.

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? You can remove them yourself, or hire a drywall pro.

These service providers are your best bet to patch drywall or plaster holes that plumbers, electricians and other service providers may create while working.

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.

Drywall Repair reviews in Galesburg

Overall the project went okay. Sometimes the communication was a little slow or lacking and I kind of had to stay on them to get updates on the status of the project, this was especially true in the beginning when the project manager didn't have any understanding of the design I wanted and did not frame the shower correctly. Fortunately I noticed it that evening and it got correct the next day . The workers were pretty professional overall and kept the house reasonably clean. I was and still am a little bit unsatisfied with the tile work, one area in particular was very crooked and I had to request it be redone (which it was) and the grout job overall could have been a lot smoother. Often times the subcontractors seemed to lack an understanding of the overall scope of the job and often times I would have to ask who's going to do this, that, etc and there were a few times that the project lagged because of material delays or workers assigned to other projects. In the end it all got taken care of and the end result is nice but I wish there had been a little bit better planning and communication.

and his team finished in less time than expected, and I was very pleased with them. I would recommend their work, and I'm about to contact them for some additional drywalling. Respectful, unassuming, good hard workers. Concerned about the customer's wishes and satisfaction. Worked quietly and didn't need supervision. I will need to do a bit of cleaning up (drops of paint in some places where they didn't put runners), but that's been true of all contractors I've hired.

Our master bath has an angular, vaulted ceiling that had developed lengthy, highly visible cracking due to house settling. It was unsightly to anyone who entered the room. This was the reason I contacted a

specialist.

Drywalling is a messy business (there will be some dust), but it was as painless and inconvenient as it could be,because

and his crews took care when preparing their work areas (we had new upstairs carpeting and hardwood floors in the foyer and kitchen) and were respectful of our home, my husband, the dog and I. They were always prompt, hard working and very careful, professional and cleaned up at the end of each day. This was a blessing, because we were living in the house while they were doing work on two levels. The week was inconvenient, but the results were worth it. It is a pleasure to walk into the rooms that had any drywalling issues, especially our master bath. Thanks for the beautiful job,

Everything they did was superb. All the repairs were done with care and, once painted, you could not tell those areas from new. In the master suite project, all the work was very well done and has aged well, except for one small part of a

came to our home to give us an estimate and was very honest and gave us the ins and outs of what the job would entail. He was booked for a little bit, but when our time came to have our work done, we couldn't be more happy. His team came in and helped us move the remaining large furniture to enable them to get all of the rooms in our house sprayed. They spent a good amount of time sealing and taping off the work areas, which were highly appreciated. Communication was open throughout the project making sure no nicks or holes in the wall were missed. They sprayed orange peel on the walls to add texture. Cleanup was outstanding.
