Reviews in Wilmington to Remove Popcorn Ceiling

AAll Around Joe LLC
Having been impressed with Joe Wood by how he dealt with some issues following a pressure washing job his company had done for us, we hired him to create a new stamped texture cover for our garage attic access and to repair a hole in the popcorn ceiling of our kitchen that had been cut out to repair a leak from a soil stack.  Joe and Dennis came out and the new attic access cover was done without incident.  Joe told us he would try to get a close approximation to the original ceiling texture, and although it is different, it blends well enough not to stand out.  The repair of the hole in the kitchen ceiling was far more difficult.  After doing the drywall repair to close up the hole, Joe first tried using a can of the popcorn texture spray, but the first can wouldn't spray, so he had to go get another.  He didn't like the way the spray came out of the can because it was difficult to control.  He scraped the texture off and tried applying it again with shorter bursts, but still didn't like the results, so he scraped it off again.  He tried applying the texture with a roller but that caused the existing popcorn around the repair area to come off.  He tried using a paint brush without good results.  Joe ended up reapplying the texture he'd scraped off with a sanding blade or wide putty knife.  The new texture looked thicker on one side with some lines left by the blade so he went over it to get it more even before he left, but he thought it might need touching up so he planned on coming out again.  Joe called me later that afternoon to say he had gone to Menard's and found a popcorn texture gun, had been practicing with it, and thought he could do a better job with it.  By that evening the texture repair he'd done had dried and had a cracked appearance, like soil in a drought.  Joe came back out the next afternoon, after another job, and did not like the original texture which he saw was "crackled".  He tented off the repair area with a cardboard box, metal extension poles, plastic sheeting and a drop cloth to help contain the spatter from the popcorn texture gun.  He scraped off the bad texture, applied a very thin coat of drywall putty/mud so the surface would be white underneath, then applied the new texture.  Joe said he didn't want us to pay him until we were satisfied with the repair, and I was to call him after it was dry and let him know how it was.  The texture did look much better once it dried, but there was a recessed, rectangular border, that looked grayer.  When I called Joe and told him about it, he said it was probably from using the cardboard box, and he would come back out and go over it again.  He wasn't able to come back out right away, which I told him was perfectly fine.  He came back out a couple of weeks later and tented off the area again, without using the box, and went over the recessed area.  It blended better, and Joe and I were both more satisfied with the result.  I felt bad that he spent so much time and effort on a $150.00 job, but Joe insisted on us paying the amount he had quoted.  He said he had learned how to do a popcorn texture repair with the popcorn texture gun, which he considered a useful tool to have, and he wanted the job done right, to his satisfaction and to ours.  We appreciated Joe's dedication to customer service and would hire him again.

Eric was very punctual.  He went straight to work on the closet, installing the closet rod and shelf.  Then, he took a good look at the ceiling fan, removed it and decided he needed to make a run to the local hardware store to purchase a support for the crystal chandelier he installed.  Very professional, but outgoing.  Did an excellent job.  Would use him again.

Cody was great. He showed up on time and worked through the day. He changed a light fixture on a 20 foot ceiling, a ceiling fan on a 16 foot vaulted ceiling, patched a ceiling drywall hole, and installed pendant lighting all in one day. He was friendly, professional, and worked hard.

Polite, responsive, called before they arrived.  Removed old ceiling fans and assembled/ installed new fans.  Both are sturdy and working great!  One ceiling fan was a "tricky" install and they were able to fix it without any problems.

Jeremy was very prompt at arriving for an estimate. He provided a reasonable estimate and time-frame to complete the work. He installed a new drywall ceiling on top of the plaster ceiling, then added a custom crown moulding to the job. The final job was professional and 100% improvement from the original.

The ceiling in my garage fell down. I hired SameDay handyman to redo the ceiling. They come right away. He tells you exactly what you need done and gets started the next week. I am happy with their service.

Cody did a great job with the difficult task of installing ceiling fan boxes that required him to get up in our attic. He was very polite, professional, and timely throughout the process and did a great job handling any issues that arose from being in the attic. We recommended him to a family member who used his services as well, and he will definitely be our first call when another job arises!

Had work done to repair a leak through my kitchen ceiling near a light fixture. They came out and opened up the ceiling, checked out all the wiring to make sure there was no permanent damage, and then came back after a couple days to re-plaster. The guy who came out took his time explaining everything to me about what he was doing, the material used, and even kept a ceiling sample so I could take it to Home Depot for color matching. Overall, a great experience and excellent workmanship.

Recent Review: Jeff arrived on time and got straight to work. I had a business call to attend to so I did not have a lot of time to devote to him. After showing him the job he completed everything without needing any additional direction from me. He took care to leave the job site as clean as he found it and the installation looks professionally done. Worth every penny I paid! I would definitely hire him for future work.
