"Chase provided the estimate and the work scope as discussed. The crew arrived before the scheduled time and went straight to work - removed the damaged ceiling" drywall in the garage and patio area. Replaced the drywall in garage and patio areas and applied knockdown. Removed popcorn in three bedrooms and two hallways and applied knockdown. There was about 6 people in the work crew and finished the work in approximately 4 1/2 hours. They removed the plastic sheeting, vacuumed, swept and mopped the work area. They were very professional. I would definitely recommend this company!

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 Rapidan


Contractor was free to go at his own schedule in a vacant house. House was tested by an independent contractor after work was completed. First mold test failed. Second one passed. Sub contractors hired by
Rapidan Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
failed to install the overflow drain line on the new hot water heater correctly . Faucet re-installed in a vanity leaked. That may have been due to the age of the faucets but if the leak hadn't been caught by another inspector , a new leak may have negated all the expensive remediation just completed. It took several weeks for

to get the poor workmanship corrected.

and his crew were amazing! The garage is no longer the room to avoid! They went above and beyond and I would definitely recommend them! I'm beyond thrilled!!
- vallerie B.

Bill and his crew did an outstanding job for a reasonable price. Our walls and ceilings look great. They were all very professional and courteous and always on time. The house was vacant at the time, but they still cleaned up at the end of each day. We also hired them to do two small jobs afterwards, and both times they came within a day and did a great job. Highly recommend!

provided an estimate within 48 hours and we agreeed on a start date that was two weeks out.
The work was split between two crews - the first crew installed the new

Went fine.

did it for half the price of the other guy who quoted, who was on a hard sell to completely re-skin several rooms.

realized the walls were a type of plaster instead of drywall, and would need slow-drying mud. He diagnosed the cracks as somebody using some kind of pre-drywall plaster panels. It was a 1950s-era hack that didn't really work. The walls were cracking along each panel. They had obviously been fixed and recracked multiple times.
The ceilings with large numbers of ex-can-lights are smooth as can be. Everything else was done efficiently. They addressed the living room with the slow-drying mud, but we got bubbles in several other places after they left.

said he should have remembered the old stuff might pull off when it got wet with new mud, so he redid a lot of that room at cost only to make it perfect. He warned me the dining room was going to be a problem and had about 50%

of not working. Yeah, it didn't. He suggested giving up on being the Nth person to try to fix the original misguided job. So he put quarter-inch drywall over it. Not wonderful but I can see that is a better (or at least much cheaper) solution than pulling everything off and redoing from bare walls. And I can see the modern drywall is a known, predictable quantity that should not lead to cracks down all the walls in a few years.

on I found

(owner) to be respectful, honest, reliable and polite. He was willing to work with my schedule. I'm very pleased with the results of his labor. I recommend him without hesitation.

is an excellent hard worker and a caring person.


We removed a pony wall and had
Rapidan Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
come over to repair the large gap/hole inthe sheetrock. Because of other issues that came up while he was working on the wall, he had to leave the job and return on another day to complete the work. He was very understanding of the issue, and worked us into his schedule a couple of days later. He did an outstanding job - no one would ever be able to notice that any work was done to the wall. His work is first-rate. He is very meticulous and pays close attention to all details. He is very professional: always on time, very respectful of our property, and leaves the area clean. This is the second time that we have had him over to our home to complete work, and we will definitely have him return.
- Barbara W.

As scheduled, all employees were punctual, professional and did a very nice job. I especially appreciated their invoice and payment system online - very convenient for me.
