"The workers arrived 10 minutes early and were friendly and professional. The worked quickly and did a fantastic job- knockdown texture is very hard to match and" I am very happy with the result. They cleaned up after themselves and left my kitchen just as clean as it was before they came. We paid the agreed upon amount, and that was that! I can't believe the entire process took 4 days from first contact with
to a completed job. This is by far the best experience I've ever had with a contractor. Can't thank you enough,

"Back in mid
I was in the process of purchasing a Condo. The condo needed to have some wallpaper removed from interior walls. In addition" I was considering having the Acoustic Ceiling removed in some or all of the rooms. However, I wanted to know how much I was looking at in costs so I could assess the scope of work I could afford. I am from out of town, so had a very limited time frame to get bids and coordinate appointments with access to the unit while I was on site. I called three contacts from Angie's List.
of
Specialists was one of them.
showed up on time and was very professional. He reviewed the job and gave suggestions for how he would approach the work. He asked detailed questions and indicated he would send me a proposal in the next few days. Two-Three days later I received the proposal. Unlike other contractors, his proposal covered all aspects of the the job as discussed. During our meeting I had let
know that the job was about 3 to 4 weeks out and confirmed how much lead time he would require. He said time to the job was fine and give him 1-2 weeks notice before I would like to start the work. On August 19th, 2015 I emailed
to let him know I would like to go with his proposal as long as he could confirm a few items. I referred to the proposal number in my email and let him know that I would move forward as soon as I had confirmation of the few items. I also had indicated it would be ideal if he would start the week of 09/07/2015. As of 08/24/2015, I had not had a reply from
, so I called the number on his business card. As of today 08/28/2015, I have not had a reply to either of my queries. I am not sure if
is still providing services. But it is very frustrating that now I will have to start the bid process again and counting on this Angie's List contact will have put me back a number weeks. I have given him an F for responsiveness because of the lack of replies. I am always very concerned when someone does not respond promptly when trying to secure your business. It makes me wonder what will happen once they have your house torn up and you are stuck with them.

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.

Bill did the work in a professional manner and the completed job looked outstanding. He cleaned the work area completely and I was very satisfied with the completed product. Unfortunately, while he was attaching a piece of

to the rafters a screw or nail pinched the wire going from the garage door opener to the wall activation device which rendered it inoperable. An electrician was called determine the problem. He found the pinched wire and replaced it which fixed the problem. When I contacted Bill to advise him of the issue, he immediately acknowledged his responsibility and sent a check to me the next day to cover the cost of the electrician. In my judgement, this was a very responsible and professional act.

I had some

to get on their schedule. You expect great work and when all goes well you don't necessarily think about the case where all doesn't go as expected. In this case

spent several days applying numerous coats of drywall compound over the repaired areas to restore the nice smooth ceiling. It looked great. He primed it and it still looked great. When the final paint was applied, we all discovered that the way the light comes into this room, there were still areas that produced slight shadows showing up the repaired area. At this point, some contractors might have pointed out that they did the work, we had agreed that it appeared correct as they went along, and either refused to do more or have asked for additional payment for additional work.

and

stated that this wasn't right yet and effectively redid the entire job a second time spending even more time and material on the redo than on the original work to achieve the perfect smooth appearance that we have come to expect from their work. The price was exactly what we'd agreed originally. No questions. No complaints. Just an excellent job. The worst piece for us was a few more days than expected, but

made much less money on our job than they'd originally estimated -- no complaints. Only thanks.
This is an excellent company with an impeccable work ethic, pride in their work, and high degree of skill in their profession. My only reluctance in giving this review is that it will make them even more popular and harder to schedule in the future.

It went great. The guys were very professional and courteous. The ceiling and walls look like new. The area in the laundry room was VERY difficult to access, but he was able to squeeze in and fix it. I would definitely use

did a great job! Was able to handle any difficulties that cropped up during the job. Excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail. The bathrooms came out better than we could ever imagine. I would highly recommend for any kitchen/bathroom work needed. Extremely honest and outgoing. We even went out of town for a few days and gave a key with no worries or concerns. He even made sure to give our dogs a treat every morning before starting work.

They worked with us for 3 days on a variety of projects and were on the job every day at 8:00 AM. Not only were they punctual, but worked organized, and maintained a clean environment in our home throughout their time on the job. They're professional and do a quality job at a fair price. I've already recommended them to friends and highly recommend
