"Responded quickly to call, was on time, and did repairs as quoted. Work was done on time and cleanup was excellent.I would recommend and use again if needed.

-Anthony S.

"It went very well. The painters showed up on time and worked quickly and professionally. They finished a half a day earlier. They cleaned up after they finished." My only concern was they disposed of the paint cans in my trash barrel instead of taking they cans with them and disposing of the properly. They really did a great job with the painting.

-Karen D.

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.

Plastering, Painting - Interior

Dear Angie: How important is it to repair plaster before repainting? Our ceilings have peeling paint that we’re pretty sure was caused by past water damage. Since the water problem is no longer an issue, can we simply repaint the ceilings or should we first repair any underlying plaster damage? – Sara S., Elgin, Illinois

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.

was able to come out for an estimate and schedule the work quickly. His prices were comparable to other estimates. The quality of the work was excellent.
- Elizabeth M.

These guys are fantastic to work with. We just did a bathroom project with them and are now scheduled to do a 2nd remodel project on a bedroom. Two things that set these guys apart -- 1)

is very responsive and detailed; it was a breath of fresh air to have such quick back and forth compared to other contractors I've dealt with. 2) The two guys that did the work were meticulous with a great eye for detail. Overall, great work product and a pleasure to have in our home.
- Ken K.

I was not happy with his work. 1) He used my materials and didn't bring his own. 2) He didn't work for the complete 3 hours. Possibly 1.5 close to 2 hrs at the most. 3) The guy that came out to complete the drywall work, didn't do what I expected as far as my drywall repair. The work done was something I could've done myself. Not a professional job and I was not happy with it at all with the whole situation.
- Kathy E.

While remodeling my bathroom, i uncovered major plaster damage on one of the exterior walls. Being enterprising, I decided I would try to learn some old-school plastering. After about 5 days of work, I had rebuilt the plaster to level with the other surfaces and had also applied a coat of Diamond Base and Diamond veneer on the walls and ceiling.
While the rebuilt plaster was actually not too bad, my efforts at a smooth skim coat were pretty much what one would expect from someone with no prior experience. Not only that, what took

was probably more conscientious about my space than I am, and he was completely thoughtful and professional in his interactions. I've never seen someone resurface so much and create so little dust. I enjoyed meeting him and his work is excellent. I would certainly hire

is a very nice friendly person. I was impressed by how neat he was and his truck was clean too! He was here to quote on plastering work in various room's of our home including the garage. He sent the quote in a few days which we appreciated.
The only problem is that I sent him a question concerning his quote and I have as yet not heard from him. Only because of this we had to go in another direction to get further quotes.
Perhaps he did not receive my e-mail - I have now hired someone else but, I would not say anyone should necessarily

- Myron M.

I had extensive damage done to my 100+ South City plastered home during a complete electrical rewire. The electricians had to cut strips around all the rooms upstairs so they could run the wire. There was also damage on the ceilings. There was one room which needed drywall and insulation and one room just drywall. I got three bids and

was very upfront about what the job would entail. He was the most knowledgeable of the three by far about making the repairs. He knows his plaster work! I was so satisfied with the plaster work I had him bid on painting the whole inside as well. He blew the other two away in price. He even gave me an old medallion he thought might look good in my dining room. All in all I think it was an excellent transaction and I would recommend this company to my friends when they need drywall/plaster work done.
