"I asked if they could come by my house for an estimate and they indicated to send pics and size. I prefer not to get an estimate this fashion so I did not go any" further. This process works for some people but not me.

-Thomas M.

"I was extremely happy with the services provided.
was punctual and courteous. He told me about the problem and situation and how he would" repair and correct the problem. He explained what had caused the problem in the first place and how to prevent it in the future. He worked quickly, was very clean during the work and did not make a mess. Many others in the past had been pretty messy, but he was not. My opinion of his work is that he is detail oriented, which is always greatly appreciated. I would definitely hire him again not only for the plaster work, but also for painting and any other work he specializes in.

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: How important is it to repair plaster before repainting? Our ceilings have peeling paint that we’re pretty sure was caused by past water damage. Since the water problem is no longer an issue, can we simply repaint the ceilings or should we first repair any underlying plaster damage? – Sara S., Elgin, Illinois

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.

came to talk with us the day after we called for an appointment and provided an estimate on the spot. He offered some good suggestions. It was obvious he was an expert. Since his price was reasonable, we agreed to have the stucco repaired. The crew arrived on time to repair the stucco, which had been damaged by water wicking up the wall from the ground. It was a mess. They did such a great job (in a way that would help prevent this from happening again) that we decided to have the house painted at the same time---also for a reasonable price. After the stucco had dried, a second crew of 6 workers painted the exterior of the house, including the trim. It took them only two days because there were so many workers!!! They were directed by

, the owner of the company, was also on the scene, dropping by periodically to check on quality and progress. We couldn't have asked for a better result---and we're fussy folks about quality. They're good people to work with.

It was a pleasure to have him work on my house. He did great work and my ceilings are flat again.

Contractor showed up when he said he would and also called ahead. Took approximately a day and a half to complete the job. Cleaned up very well after the job. Owner and crew were very nice to talk with. I would use them again.

was punctual and professional, thorough and friendly. He covered my hardwood floors, furnishings and windows with drop cloths and plastic to prevent them from being covered with plaster dust. The finished plaster was well done. He went above and beyond. I highly recommend

did not hesitate to say yes. When he was here I added several thinks to the list. He had no problem with the additional work and did it that day. His price was fantastic and the finished product was excellent. Would certainly like to hire in the future.

was kind enough to come do the first job very last minute. He showed up on time and did a great job making my entry look good as new. The second job he was a little late to start but no big deal. He's been doing this a very long time and really understands how to achieve a great look when working with Stucco. I would definitely hire him again.

presents himself professionally, has 20 years of experience, answers all questions and does a really professional job. I was expecting dust and some debris but his second visit to sand/finish left virtually none. Highly recommend him.
- Sarah F.

I have had bad luck with contractors and was hoping for the best with my first Angie's List try.
Biddeford Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
said he would be here at 9:00 in the morning. At 8:45, the phone rang and I thought, "oh, great, he's going to cancel." No, he was calling to say he was stuck in traffic and would be fifteen minutes late. I have had contractors who don't show up for days and don't call you. The drywall repair was done quickly, methodically and even with a twist: they don't use the typical dust creating "mud."
Biddeford Plastering Contractors Provider Name Locked
mixes a quick drying mixture that dries in a few minutes and does require sanding for painting. The result was great. The price was fair and he is a very nice fellow. He even patched a hole in the wall that wasn't in the bid for free. We highly recommend him.
