"Took 3 days for a return phone call requesting an appointment for an estimate. When call was returned and I tried to schedule an appointment, I was told that he" "might", "maybe" show up for a scheduled appointment, it would depend on how busy he was that day. Why would I
time from work for someone who "might", "maybe" show up? My time is also valuable. Good thing I learned up front about the lack of professionalism. I would have hated to start a job with someone that "might", "maybe" show up to do the work.

"
arrives to do the work on time and even sends me a text when he's on his way. I've used him 4 times and will continue to use him." My daughter is buying a home and will also be using him. He estimates accurately how long it will take to complete the job. His work is excellent quality, and I've been very happy.

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.

Dear Angie: Who can I hire to remove a popcorn ceiling? How is it done and what will it cost? — Jonathan H. of Woodland Hills, California, and Marcia E. of Altamonte Springs, Florida

Are those small Styrofoam balls on your ceiling bugging you? You can remove them yourself, or hire a drywall pro.

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.

I was very impressed with the comments on this provider from other Angie users. He was punctual for the estimate and very through. Unfortunately, I could not partake of his services as his estimate for the work was 24% higher than the next bid for the same.

installed on all patches and Lalo graciously and patiently worked around me until I could get everything covered and he could hide the patches. All in all, Lalo helped me get back on schedule after delays from other contractors and gave me a perfect job. He also did the work personally. My wife is happy with the work as well!!

I am extremely satisfied with the completed job. The conversion from tub/shower to shower stall only with handicap features is exactly what I wanted. It looks great and gives my bathroom an updated appearance.

and his helper arrived right on time and started taping off the trim in both the family room and kitchen. After repairing many areas in both rooms, they began skim coating. They used a wet sanding technique that was more labor-intensive, but gave a beautiful smooth finish without all the dust . This was a pleasant surprise, since another plasterer I had used in the past used the dry sanding method that made dust settle everywhere.

knows his craft....a true professional. He even came back out to our home when I found a small area they missed. I will use him again if needed. Thanks so much
