"All aspects on the job went smoothly. I was especially impressed that I called him last minute and he was able to fit this job in quickly so my carpenter could get" started in the space. It was obvious that he went above and beyond to get this job done quickly for us. I think other contractors would have told me they couldn't do the job when I asked, I only gave him a week's notice. He worked hard to get it completed for us even though we were first time customers. Also, I live in an old home and the walls in my son's room look like a new construction home now. I am impressed.

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? A popcorn ceiling removal project is the answer. You can remove popcorn ceilings yourself, or hire a drywall pro.

Drywall, Asbestos Removal

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

Angie's Answers

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.

Awesome job, well done!
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
was such a great company to work with. They were on time, professional and worked efficiently. They did an incredible job on my 1923 ceilings. I highly recommend this company!

- Susan H.

Did a very poor job of fixing patches and texturing
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Charged me $800 for 4 hours of work. My husband had to re-texture the walls once they left.
- Catherine S.

Contacted three other contractors prior to contacting
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Others could not do the work, as they were focusing on outside jobs. After speaking with
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
, he agreed to work with me. He surveyed the job, and quickly provided an estimate, even agreeing to use construction materials on site, to prevent costs over runs. Within a weekend additional supplies and his crew were on site and work commenced immediately. Two bedrooms were framed out on the first day. Quickly the rest of the walls were framed out, as well as the ceiling. Drywall on the ceilings and walls finished quickly as will, with the crew ensuring supplies were on hand ahead of time as to not delay the job. The large project took approximately 6-7 weeks. Minor setbacks did happen, by rarely can these be avoided. Overall, I'm 100% satisfied with
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
Petite and his crew. I've already spoken to him about future projects I have in mind, and will choose no one else to do the job. The job came in on budget, on time........and that's the key of a successful project. Look them up on facebook, and view the visitors pictures, the work he did for me are of the rustic basement with the bar, baseball sports memorabilia and saloon doors.

excellent work.. looks great. This guy is a pro. can't tell there was ever anything wrong with the area. Will is a down to earth person that is exceptional in his trade, would not hesitate to hire again.

I came upon this company by reviewing numerous contractors and I had a good feeling given the reviews I read. I had recently had a poor experience with another
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
contractor so I was a little nervous. (BTW- another contractor estimated 3.5-4 weeks what
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
did in 10 days).
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
came to inspect the project requirements and provided a written estimate within 24 hours. I like the way he focused our discussion on what WE wanted and what were OUR expectations and best possible outcome. Things started good and only got better. The drywall job was challenging because of the many corners and

given the dormers etc of this Georgian style million dollar home. These guys know their drywall to put it simply. Most of the time- there were 5 workers. Things went very smoothly and proceeded like clockwork. Trash and debris were hauled away quickly and never stayed outside for longer than 30 minutes. Materials came the same way - at the right time, a truck would arrive with the needed supplies and materials and they were quickly unloaded and taken upstairs. They worked hard and fast and cleaned up well after the day was done.

would come by at the start or during the day to oversee and make sure things were proceeding according to plan. If something came up- the crew could contact

for direction. Nothing seemed to stall or even slow down given the proper management of resources and materials that was exhibited. Great project management!
I am grateful this was a drama free experience.

went over and above in a couple of areas with no additional cost- not even the mention of adding to the price quote given. First, the estimate contemplated R30 insulation in the ceiling and R19 in the walls. They decided to put the R30 everywhere- I think code requires R24 in ceiling. This additional expense and handling time was done at no extra cost to me. Next, the estimate contemplated
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
the original baseboard moldings. Once everything was completed it became clear the best option was to replace the moldings.
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
discussed it with me and recommended the style and approach. Again, the materials showed up and were measured and cut outside and installed and later caulked. They look great and are very similiar to original. This added almost a day to the schedule. Again, a price increase was never mentioned and I still feel a little guilty. For instance- I had to add $1850 on the second day with my previous contractor! These guys know their stuff and aim to please. I want to affirm the original estimate was very fair- less expensive than some and just a little more than another. I could not be more satisfied.
At the end of the project, 2 workers showed up and informed me they were there to "clean". They worked about 4 hours cleaning and moving furniture and wiping it down. They even removed the old carpet, pad, and tack boards in places it was not already removed. This was over and above and was the cherry on top for this project.
I would highly recommend this company. I am more than satisfied with their overall performance, the skills they exhibited, the professionalism and courtesy, and the work ethic. I am going to take a break on the home improvements until after the holidays but will definitely use this company again.

- Michael H.

This company was a referral from an unknown person through general conversation, we connected while waiting on our appointments.

I received a call back within an hour for scheduling of an estimate and received an otw call in advance on estimate day. The representative arrived on time and asked if he should remove his shoes upon entry, very courteous gentleman. Our walk through was quick and informative. We scheduled the job and the completion was within the 2 days stated. The workers cleaned up after themselves and I am very pleased with the work. Although it wasn't the lowest cost of my 3 estimates. It was fair enough and I was comfortable. I made the right decision and the work speaks for itself. You get what you pay for.
