"Came on time, courteous, professional. Told me what he needed to do to fix the problem. Did great work. Covered all the furniture that was necessary so I did not" have drywall dust on everything. Asked me about the design in the spackle, and was it what I wanted. Cleaned up at the end of the job. That is important to me! He did everything right and I can recommend him highly.

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 made some heavy assumptions about how much i could do by myself and by when. When i finally admitted to myself that i wasn't getting some of the work done, i called in

from
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
to button up my drywall work, which he and his team did with professionalism and skill.
I pushed them off twice from our scheduled dates for various reasons and while he was disappointed,
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his team graciously worked around my schedule to get the work done.
They had an eye for cleanup and made sure the work is / was to my satisfaction - and it was. Everything i could've hoped for.

and his crew did a great job!
They were in and out in 2-days (others said it would be up to a week!)
The price was great.
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
was professional and very easy to work with. He was willing to answer all my questions. He gave recommendations for how to fix the walls (which were damaged by the company that removed the acoustic ceiling). He was professional and gave very good customer service. And they took extra measures to protect our hardwood floors.
The final result looks great!
Previous companies said the ceiling was too damaged by the acoustic removal for them to fix. Or some companies wanted to charge more. One estimate was almost twice as much.
I would highly recommend

and his crew. They did an all around awesome job!

The finished work looked great. He told me it would take about 4 hours to complete job and he finished in 4 1/2 hours. Very happy with quality of work at a reasonable price.

We had some nasty vinyl wallpaper to remove that had to be chipped off, taking much of the wall with it. He completed this job, skimmed the entire bathroom and applied texture. He also repaired another hole in a wall.

From the beginning to the end,
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
was a true pleasure to work with.
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
was understanding of our request and vision for the basement, respected and met the budget we had in place, was accurate in setting expectations around timelines for completion of work, always was respectful in letting us know when and where he was going to be during the process and last but not least,
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
turned out basement into a beautiful area that our family can now live in and enjoy.
As it the case with any project, there are issues that come up along the way that aren't planned for but must be taken care of -
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
handled these situations especially well. For example, we really wanted a coat closet door to be installed at the base of our stairwell that
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
to the basement. Due to low ceiling height under some duct work, there was no way around it other than to build a custom door that would require a full days work to build and install.
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
communicated what needed to be done and why, let us know how expenses could look like and built the custom door beautifully. On top of this,
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
went ahead and built out a custom fit closet shelf for us at no extra cost but did so because it was the right thing to do for the closet.
Simply put,
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
does his work the way it should be done. He is highly skilled, respectful of all aspects of the job, doesn't cut corners and always makes himself available for questions before, during and after the project begins.
I would highly recommend

to anyone I know and respect and we will be sure to use his services again in the future.

was on time for my estimate, spent time answering all questions, and was up front about everything. He arrived on time for the work, his crew was polite and they moved quickly. There were two areas of my ceiling that needed repair and he did them without extra cost. In one area, there was a bad repair job in the past.
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
fixed it and now you can't even tell where the problem was. The ceilings are very smooth, and you can tell a lot of skill and care went into the work. They put up plastic to protect walls and floors, and covered all lights/fans and removed fan blades. After his crew was done with the work, he came by to make sure I was happy with the work, get paid, and clean up.
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
said he treats every job like it's his own home, and I believe it. He has really good relationships with the people he has doing work for him, and with him.
Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
was accessible to speak to throughout the job, and I was always able to go inside the house to check out the progress.

Oakland Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
was not my cheapest estimate, but I chose him because all the reviews I saw that had work completed were all excellent, the time he spent answering questions, and his specialty in dry wall. I would recommend him to my family/friends and I plan to call him again to do some dry wall work in the future.
