"We removed a pony wall and had
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.

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 Grandy


I was extremely happy with the work. Mr. Otenti returned my call promptly and arrived as scheduled to provide an estimate. He completed the work on time within the estimated expense. The repaired sections blend seamlessly into the existing ceiling and wall, so that you would never notice there had been any damage to begin with. The workers left my house spotlessly clean.

does all his own work. He happily worked me into his schedule (and mine, which unfortunately was in constant flux due to the other work being done in my house). I was not looking for a perfect texture job on the living room wall, as with knock-down texture, it's quite difficult to get it exact. But,
Grandy Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
said it would be a big improvement on what I currently had. He patched in a way to make the transition between the original texture and the re-texture less obvious; thereby, removing the shadow. In addition, he stapled the corner bead back in place and re-textured that area. After the painters came in and put primer and then paint over

's work, the shadow is no longer visible. The work on the living room wall required

to set up scaffolding. He set up quickly and got the job finished quickly, while other work was being done in the house. I would definitely recommend

to anyone needing

or texturing. He showed up when he said he would and was very pleasant to interact with, from the phone calls we had about scheduling to the time he spent in my home.

Rothengass replied to my request right away and came out promptly to look over our project. He gave us good advice on what we should do before having him do any work. We will take his advise and talk to him again in the spring. He gave us different estimates based on some of the work we were looking at doing. He sent us a proposal right away also. Very personable and told us helpful information before starting this project. We like him very much and appreciated his honesty. We will look to

again when we get our part done and in the springtime when we can be working in the garage area. (garage is 3 1/2 car)

For nearly 13 years, we had a builder-installed rectangular (approximately 18" x 36") fluorescent light in our kitchen. It was never liked by us, but for simplicity sake, we just left it there. We happened to have an electrician in our house working on a few other small projects and asked him to remove it and install alternate lighting. What was left behind were three holes (1 about 8" in diameter, the other two about 1 inch in diameter) in our popcorn ceiling in our kitchen.
After getting another estimate and being told the entire ceiling would need to be redone to make it match (this would be kitchen, family room and a hallway), I contacted
Grandy Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he seemed as though it not be a very big deal at all to patch the holes and get a decent match. His price was about 1/3 of the other contractor.
Grandy Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
is a one-man show, so when he missed an e-mail of mine, I simply e-mailed him back and he did respond. No big deal (I have seen others on here complaining that he isn't the best at getting back to you). One reason I liked
Grandy Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
is that he is in business for himself and really seems to know what he's doing. And he is a genuinely nice guy. So if you are looking for the corporate world with admins able to take appointments and call you for to remind you of the appointment, this isn't the place.

even asked me to send an e-mail reminder, which I did without issue.
So the work itself? I am definitely satisfied. The color matches perfectly and if I had to be
Grandy Drywall Contractors Provider Name Locked
-picky, I'd say there is a slightly greater concentration of popcorn in the area he worked on. He delivered exactly what I expected....something very, very close to perfect and something that would not be noticeable to anyone except the most discerning of eyes. The price was what I wanted to pay, and the entire job took about one hour.

arrived at 8:30am and placed mats down to protect our carpet from stains. Our original price did not include new framing but

I was very satisfied with services provided by this company. All emails were answered promptly and JL arrived when he said he would. The price was fair and reasonable and the wall looks great after the work was completed. If I ever need

Very pleased with all the work performed by

and his men. The work exceeded all expectations and fully met our agreement. The work performed was of very high quality. Many neighbors have commented on the excellent job done. I would definitely have Customer Colors Painting paint the interior of our home when needed.

They did a great job. In under an hour they fixed it and let me know all the details I needed to know about the repair and additional painting services needed. Great team.
