"Workers were prompt to arrive as scheduled, they were very professional in their work and cleaned up everyday. All work was performed per the contract and they kept" us informed as they proceeded with work. I would recommend them and would use them again in the future.

"I couldn't be happier with the project - from quote through execution. I would highly recommend
Otenti &
" . I will definitely use them again when I have a plastering need. Professionalism and Responsiveness:
responded immediately to our request for information and quote, arranged to come within a couple of days to do a quote, came exactly when he said he would and was extremely professional, responsive and punctual with getting back to us with a quote, scheduling the work and then doing the work on time. He provided options and expert advice on the best way to repair the damage. At all times
and his team were great to work with. Quality: The quality of the work was excellent. The ceilings look better than ever. He also did extra work at no charge to do a smooth finish rather than the texture we had contracted for because we decided that would look best in our house. Clean-up:
and his team took care with our house so nothing was damaged - they put plastic on the walls and sturdy covering on the floors to protect wall paint, window treatments, and our wood floor. After the job was complete, they took care to clean up all the plaster residue and debris. They completed the job in only 2 (long) days. Excellent job!

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? You can remove them yourself, or hire a drywall pro.

These service providers are your best bet to patch drywall or plaster holes that plumbers, electricians and other service providers may create while working.

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 could not be more impressed with this company and the professional manner of their work, the staff, the crew, and the overall experience. It is so refreshing to have a contracted service that obviously takes pride in their work. They were extremely respectful of me, my house and my pets. They are clearly aware that they are not working a job site, but a home. If I ever need this type of work done in the future, this is the only company I would call.

It turned out well and the project is completed. The contractor who came out did a great job! Unfortunately the first person who came out over-measured and caused me to purchase more flooring than I needed. Because it was a special order, I could not return the flooring to the store. Knowing clearer pricing for needed materials up front would be helpful in terms of their quote. The main employee who did all the work did a good job. She was knowledgeable and did the work well.

We had pot lights put in by a different company, and the electrician messed up the ceilings in the kitchen and family rooms. There were holes all over the ceilings;

“They were doing drywall work in the kitchen and I realized that they put the drywall too thick that I couldn’t even open my kitchen cabinets and he told me that I would have to go and buy new kitchen cabinets and he refused to redo the work right”

I had a bad experience with
Elkhorn Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
.
He is extremely friendly and responsive -- I have to hand that to him. He clearly does what it takes to get business in the door, then it all goes downhill.
One of my biggest pet peeves with contractors is the scheduling circus that they can create in order to presumably fit in more jobs. This was a problem in this case.
Elkhorn Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
promised me they would complete the job in 2 days-- he even put dates in the original invoice b/c i told him up front it is a big deal to me. I'm extremely busy and rescheduling time being home to have repairs done is a huge inconvenience, and I felt that my time was not respected at all.
The first day went spectacularly. They showed up on time, were friendly, did the work.
The 2nd day,
Elkhorn Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
texted me at 8am that they would be late. At 10am, the new time he said they would show up, I had to contact him later to find out what was going on. Then he added more delays, saying they couldn't be there until the afternoon, when I had already told him earlier I had to leave the house at 1pm. Then he said they couldn't finish the job that day and pushed the job to another day in the week, when I had already scheduled work around him.
The quality of the work was not good. They did not cover my furniture while painting, and there is still paint on my floors. The paint they used was not flat as I had told him repeatedly, it has a

Bottom line: Bad quality work. Extremely frustrating and I felt totally disrespected.

It went very well. He came when he said he would, was great about keeping in contact with us if his plans needed to change which only happened once. After the original quote we asked about adding some more work to it and he agreed but we did not bother with a new quote, he was very fair about the added charge for the extra work.
