"Since the drywall installation in our new home in 2014, there have been issues. Drywall tape has torn from walls and has peeled in several locations. We contacted" the drywall installer,
, and he gave us a date for repair. He did not show up on the agreed upon date and, since then, has not returned our calls. He apparently has no intention of repairing his work. We have contacted our builder and requested he send someone else to do the repairs. Given this experience, we would not recommend hiring
for drywall installation as he does not stand behind his work.

"These men are WORLD CLASS. The best reference is using them again. I will have them paint the outside of my home after hurricane season.
" and his team are clean workers, expert painters, I asked to see his insurance information. That was quickly provided to me. If you want a great job at a fair price
is the way to go

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.

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

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

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.

What a great experience! The water damage resulted in two large jagged holes in the ceiling and also slightly damaged the soffit.

came out and gave an estimate and then was able to do the work within the week. He cut out the damaged drywall and fixed the soffit and it looks perfect. He was very neat and professional, Highly recommend!

was a good communicator which made it easy to schedule for both estimates and service. Straightforward with cost and fit me in within the time frame I was trying to accomplish the job. From the Angie explanation of services I thought he could take care of the painting which he did not but he gave me a great referral for
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
(also on Angie's list) and the two of them did a great job coordinating the complementary services. His team was professional and took care to drape the floor even though I told them I was having the carpet removed. I am very happy with the result after the popcorn removal and will use him to finish other jobs in my house in the future.

was very responsive and professional. He was easy to get in touch with, showed up right on time. The work was done by
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he was very professional and courtious. We have icky popcorn ceilings and he matched it beautifully. After we put a coat of paint on it know one would ever know that it was patched.
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very conscious of the dust and debris and did a great job keeping it contained, then he cleaned up very well. He even moved our heavy TV and stand back in place for me.
My bid was $250 for the hole in family room ceiling and $250 for perfecting previous patching done by insulation guys. I felt like
the bid for bedrooms was a little high, but
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
had to do more cutting out of our family room ceiling than expected, so all in all the think the price was fair.
I would highly recommend
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
for all drywalling needs. Who knows someday we may even have them replace our popcorn ceiling :)
Thanks guys,

I highly recommend
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
. After dealing with a number of small contractors over the years to do various odd jobs, it was like a breath of fresh air from start to finish with these guys. They earned my trust and confidence each in each step of the process.
1. When I called they actually answered the phone. (As dumb as that sounds, I found many do not and several don't even bother calling back,)
2.
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the owner, spoke with me himself and was extremely professional, guided me through the process and the pricing upfront. He answered all my questions fully and made me feel quite confident that I had made the right decision calling his company. (Most others that I spoke with either seemed bothered that I had called or came across as sleazy con-men, and none gave up front pricing.)
3. The
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
arrived on time and was ready to begin work right away. (I can tell you horror stories about other contractors who could not even do this
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
task.)
4. The
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
was polite. Yes POLITE!!!
5. The
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
had all the correct tools. (My lending toolbox stayed in the
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
of the car.)
6. The
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
confirmed the scope of the work, inspected the work area, confirmed the estimated time and once again made sure that I was aware of the pricing up front.
7.The
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
knew what to do and did it effectively and efficiently. It was really fun just watching him knock it out, almost like it was choreographed. They say that pros make it look easy, this guy made it look dead
Fairhaven Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
. (I know from personal experience it was not easy at all when you have a steep roof, that's why I hired them in the first place, that and I am getting old.)
8. He would have cleaned up at the end but I stopped him as he had done quite enough on such a hot day and because I figured that I could do the cleaning myself.)
9. When he completed the work he thanked me for the opportunity to work on my project and said that he would be happy to assist me in any future projects.
10. The company sent me my receipt by email and thanked me for my business.
Honest, friendly, polite, professional, experienced, knowledgeable, trustworthy, hard working, and not over priced. Yup! I recommend them.

performed a 3 hour mud job for $620. They resurfaced, repaired, installed and textured drywall with mud-work to a 7' reach-in closet and installed a ~3'x2' drywall panel with mud-work and texture to a wall in my living room.
Assuming $50 for their expenses (mud, drywall, gasoline, etc), that's $95/hr wage or a $197,600 salary per person. Other than feeling like they took me to the cleaners, they were very nice and respectful and did quality work.
All this said, a deal's a deal. We agreed on the price before the work began. I just wanted the job done and I was in no mood for haggling.

Quality was great. They were able to match the stippling such that to you cannot tell where a repair has been made.
They were very fast in finishing the work. Scheduling was pretty quick, too. Owner was able to provide a rough estimate of cost over cellphone (with provided pictures and measurement estimates).
