"He did go back and get some anti-mold material, though I offered an anti-mold spray. Unfortunately, he forgot to pull the light switch forward so a faceplate now" makes the switch unreachable. He took my own faceplate and screws which were perfectly fine, so after three stores I finally found replacements. The hardware man said any wall repairman should know to adjust the light switch accordingly. The molding is also missing now at the top of the wall and is coming apart at the bottom. He put 9 dark screws all unevenly spaced with the molding NO LONGER flush with the wall. It is too far for paint to make a difference. It looks awful. The other floor moldings are one piece with no screws. This means I have to buy new moldings and get that mess unscrewed! A chunk of drywall is missing near the bottom, leaving a 1-1/2 inch hole with a 7-inch line of unfinished wall directly above the now-destroyed floor molding. I did not look carefully while he was still here as the different colors bothered me until he explained that the mudding of seams covered the dark grey, leaving huge darker rectangles than where the seams were mudded--I do worry that the paint will not show evenly with two such different colors. Why in the world don't they make WHITE drywall? I also have to hire a painter separately, which I don't know whether this is the norm for wall repair or not. I could have had this wall done for $200 by a handyman, but
bragged about how good he was and that he would use a tent. He didn't do that right away, only covering the bed, so I had dust come through my floor registers. I am allergic to dust, which I told him, so had to put on a
and put a towel under the door jam. He then put the tent up! He did not put my heavy hose back nor did he put back the nozzle which was much dirtier than I'd ever seen it. I left a message with Home Advisor since I did not have his phone number. They got a voicemail recording.

"
told me exactly how he was going to make the repairs to the walls and ceiling. I was really concerned that the textured ceiling repair would" not match the rest of the ceiling, he assured me it would look the same and it does. Both men were very nice and professional. They even took time to show me how to make repairs to the drywall :)) They cleaned up everything before they left. I will definitely hire
's Construction again.

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.

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.

Overall great experience working with
Morris Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
. I contacted them on Monday for a quote, they came out that evening when it fit our scheduled. We quickly agreed on a great price (cheaper than others had quoted us for less work) and they began 2 days later. They arrived on time worked the entire day and returned the following morning on time and were finished within a couple of hours. I was pleased with the work and they even told me that we had any issues when we went to paint to let them know and they would come back out and fix them for free. Other

He was punctual, polite and professional. He gave me an extremely fair price and when everything was complete, my exterior wall looked fantastic and there was more protection from moisture than there was before. I would highly recommend this contractor and will use him again.

Overall, very pleased with the finished work & price. We originally used
Morris Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
for an emergency situation a few years ago after losing balance in the attic and falling through the roof! Within 2 days, the hole was repaired and the ceiling texture was matched perfectly so nobody would ever know today that we had a hole between the living room & the attic at one time--and the job cost us much less than we feared it would. When we needed additional patchwork done this summer, we contacted
Morris Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
again to get an estimate. Between contacting him to stop by to quote the job, we also decided to smooth out the texture on a 9'x16' wall so wallpaper could be hung on it.

showed up and took notes on everything we wanted done & pointed out small, additional cracks in our

that we hadn't even noticed. Within a few days, we received the price quote and we set a date to have the work completed. On the day of the

work,

' brother arrived to complete the job. Drop cloths were laid out and the entire work area was sectioned off with plastic so our counters and floors would not get dirty from the work being done. Within 2 hours, all the small patch & crack work was completed, and he started smoothing out the texture on the wall. During the day,

stopped by to check on the work and ask if we needed anything else or if we had questions. After another 4 hours or so, it was all completed and the brother explained that he may need to stop by again later to add another coat.

called me later to ask if they could stop by again 2 days later to assess the work and add another

of mud to the smoothed wall, if they decided it needed to be smoother. Even though we thought it all looked outstanding, the brother decided to touch it up again to get it really smooth--the work on that second day took less than 2 hours. Today, our wallpaper guy came to hang the paper on the freshly smoothed wall & he asked for

' contact information so he could possibly use
Morris Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
for future jobs together. He was really impressed with how well the wall looked & had the wallpaper hung in no time. Oh & I forgot to mention that the texture work on the ceiling cracks that were repaired did not require painting later because the new white texture added matched the existing white color perfectly. We are very happy with the work completed and we would use

again with any other jobs we have.

(the owner) is a pleasure to work with. He answered every phone call, returned every text message, and replied to every email we sent him. His subcontractors were on time, pleasant, and we did not feel the least bit uncomfortable having them in our condo. The entire job was finished in two days and the end result was perfect. I can't think of a negative thing to say.

Excellent. These folks weren't flashy or fancy -- no fancy logos or uniforms. That's the only reason I gave them a "B" on the Professionalism rating. So if that's important to you (national logos, uniforms, etc.), then they are not for you.
But they did the job quickly, professionally, and courteously. I'd use them again. If you want a job well-done, they are your solution.
By the way, two other homeowners had used and recommended this company to me earlier, so that helped in my choice.

We have used C&C in the past and been very happy with their work. We contacted

a while back and asked about his availability. He said it was a very busy summer and to give him a week or so notice when we were ready. We called and he scheduled us a week and a half out. They showed up, did the work and did it very well.

After reading several of the reviews on the company, I emailed a request for an estimate, sending a picture of the water-damaged area of the ceiling.

responded early the next day via phone and subsequently sent me an email with cost and approximate scheduling. I agreed on the price, and
