"
was very responsive. I live out of state and have had a tough time getting contractors to respond to my request as this is a rental property."
responded right able and was able to get the job done the day after I requested. He sent pictures of the area before and after as proof. Will definitely use his services again

"Very responsive and professional. Probably my best experience with a contractor. Excellent from start to finish. Showed up on time, very friendly and courteous" crew. They did an awesome job fixing the dry wall. They cleaned up every last spec of dust and debris. These are now my go-to guys when it comes to dry wall and painting. Would highly recommend them. Its refreshing to see a company care about the work they do....it really shows.

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.

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.

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.

did an awesome job! The contractor had such a disorganized mess and incompetent carpenters who could not keep a schedule that allowed the painter to finish before going to another job.
Unicoi Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
had to cover a lot of imperfections and put in much extra time because of the lack of proper oversight of the project.his work ethic should have been an example to the "carpenters". There is still a lot of painting to be completed.

was able to come the next morning after I called and gave me an estimate for the work. He texted me that he was on the way and arrived shortly after. After the estimate

left to get his supplies. He came back within the hour and I also met

his brother and business partner. They broke for lunch a little before noon and returned not too long afterwards to finish. I received an estimate for painting also. I'm probably going to use them to paint this same room a deeper color to see how I like it and would consider them for other work.

also told me they do other remodeling, home projects. The cleanup was thorough also and they took more care with my wood floors than the last contracter did.

We hired the

for snow removal for our 7 unit condo building this winter. They come out every time it snows over 2 inches for a fixed monthly rate of $300. The removal guys that have come out have all been great. Our building feels that this service has been worthwhile and we will continue to use them next year.

and his crew did a great job! He came out the next day after my call and provided a reasonable estimate via email. In the beginning I shared my concerns with
Unicoi Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
about wanting a quality job done on a long awaited kitchen remodeling project. He installed new kitchen drywall and tied it in with the existing old drywall in a seamless manner. Numerous holes left by the electrician who installed recessed lighting, switches, and outlets were patched and sanded in a professional manner.

Excellent experience. I had heard horror stories of popcorn ceiling removal, and this experience could not have been any better. The crew showed up around 8:30am (right on time) and were done in one day (and this was a 2,000 square foot condo). All popcorn removed and knock-down texture applied. They were gone by 3:00pm and virtually no sign they had been there they were so clean. They even placed plastic outside on the pavement by my garage to control the spread of the white residue. Two days later they were back to paint the ceiling (after texture had dried) and again they were punctual, fast, and very clean. They did a great job and my ceilings look great. I had no issues at all. HIGHLY recommend.
