"The original pricing and negotiation was easy to conduct, price was reasonable, the work was good. I am happy and pleased with the way the basement and bathroom" renovation turned out. I purchased most of the material, but
provided the building materials. The work took two weeks to complete and they cleaned after completion of the project. I will not hesitate to use
again and will for my future projects and I recommend them to others as well.

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.

Are those small Styrofoam balls on your ceiling bugging you? A popcorn ceiling removal project is the answer. You can remove popcorn ceilings yourself, or hire a drywall pro.

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

Angie's Answers

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.


Drywall Repair reviews in Unicoi


They are great. We are having them redo our kitchen in a month. We recommend them to everyone. They are honest, reliable, and take pride in the work they do.

Work was done quickly and professionally. The team was very prompt and was able to complete the efforts in 3 hours. Thanks for the excellent work! Much appreciated!
- Sean S.

The whole process went very smoothly.

visited the house to give us an estimate for the job. He had to move the start date back a week from what was originally scheduled, but communicated with us early to let us know. He arrived on time, worked quickly, and was able to finish a big job in two days. There was minimal mess and our ceiling looks great!
- Judy C.

The best painter I every had.

was very prompt in getting back to us for a quote and scheduling a date for the service. Plastic was put up all over the affected area while

was applied and the mudding and taping was completed a day early. The texturing was scheduled for a few days later and went very smoothly. There were a few minor inconveniences with regards to hand prints left on the walls and a hole cut for a ceiling can that was too big to fit the trim for the can. However,

was extremely responsive and came to personally clean up the mess during the completion inspection. He also scheduled one of his guys to come back and fix the hole at a later date. Basement looks great! Overall, we are very happy with the job

- Keith M.

Very responsive. Called in advance if there were scheduling delays or when the workers were on their way.
Team of two worked on the issue with

came across as very experienced and capable in fixing drywall related issues. Didn't feel the pressure of up-selling either. Explained the best and most cost effective approach and worked well within the budget.
Will definitely use again.

(of G & B Carpentry) did a great job! He came later than they expected due to being on a job later than they had anticipated (plus bad weather), but the project manager,

They did a great job on most of the work, but in the bathroom, no fixtures were removed from the walls when the texturing was done so the texturing around the vanity mirror and light fixture was ugly and very inconsistent with the rest of the bathroom. They did make an effort to fix the work but it wasn't a very good attempt. I think to do it properly, the area would have to be completely sanded and re-textured but all they did was a light sanding and re-texturing with a can. Maybe part of the problem was that the rest of the bathroom and basement texture looked so good, comparatively. They did some minor patchwork and other finish work that wasn't discussed but they also messed up my bathroom door trim when they fixed the door (which was discussed) and never repaired the damage. They said they would return to fix the damage, but I kinda figured they wouldn't. There was no written estimate which seemed a bit unprofessional but the workers were very friendly and experienced. Also, the cleanup was not very thorough. I have no frame of reference for the price but it seemed high and was higher than I wanted to pay. All in all, I would still probably use them again.
