Amin helped me mount a 50" TV on a brick & mortar fireplace. Amin impressed me because this wasn't a straight forward job because of the brick and the studs that prevented an easy through the drywall type of mounting. He was very responsive, timely, and had all the right tools and training as a civil engineer to help us select the best configuration to conceal our cables. His pricing is very reasonable and transparent and he offered me other great tips on where to find reduced price electronics. Amin finished the job and cleaned up in a little over two hours. It was a great learning experience for myself and a pleasure working with Amin.

As fairly new homeowners, during the first big rain of the season we found ourselves with a leak in our daughter's bedroom and lots of worries. I quickly requested some quotes from local contractors and was immediately contacted by Stephen. He was quick to schedule a day to come and evaluate repairs and get back out to get repairs done. Our drywall had to be replaced and we also found ourselves with another leak in the kitchen. His follow up was outstanding and we couldn't be happier with the service we received from Stephen, Jerry and their drywall contact. The repairs were completed in a timely manner and very professionally. Thank you again Box Construction!!!

I am a retired facilities director. I had high expectations for what quality of work I needed for my home. Miguel with MC drywall exceeded my expectations and was extremely reasonably priced. Would gladly refer him to anybody who needs drywall repair and even painting.

Freddy and is team came in and did an amazing job installing all new drywall over and around my fireplace where we took down the mantle and surround. Now its ready for me to paint! It looks like a brand new wall. He and his team were very meticulous about their work and the results. They didn't leave until it was 10000% ready. I'll absolutely be working with Freddy and his team again. Amazing!! THANK YOU!!

Mr. Yekta was a very skilled Workman. He fixed the drywall of my ceiling. The plumber left a large hole as a result of fixing a leaking pipe. The repair looks good. He also did a good job cleaning up I plan to use him again.

I needed a couple of very small things done in my bathrooms (caulking mostly). Our appointment was set for 2:30-3:30. I received a message at 2PM that another job had an emergency so they wouldn't be able to get to my place until evening or the next day. I explained that I had a kind of hard deadline due to an inspection I had coming up the next morning and he worked it out so he was able to come over and take care of my project around 3:30, so not so late after all. He's a nice guy and did the work quickly. The only thing that stood out as odd was that the rate Thumbtack initially said he'd charge was $59/hour plus materials. He quoted me, by text, $145 and I ended up paying $135 for about 15 minutes of work, so that was a bit of a surprise but I was in a bind so was happy to just get my issues taken care of regardless of the price. I don't understand the disparity in the rate advertised and what I was charged, but again, I was just glad to have the work completed.

The project was to move a door in our master bedroom and change it to a pocket door. It required him to build new supports, install new drywall, paint, etc. Oscar did a great job and was very responsive to all of our questions. He even went to Home Depot to pick up all of the necessary materials. Will be looking to hire Oscar the next time we have a project at our house. Thanks Oscar!

We hired Jerry to do some drywall work and to build a bookshelf in a pony wall and paint. He was very easy to communicate with, was always very prompt, often arriving early. He took pride in his work and did a good job.

This was my first Thumbtack request that had variables. I was asking to remove a ceiling fixture, demo a soffit, patch drywall, move a medicine cabinet, install a new one, install a vanity and a new lighting fixture. Lots of stuff to consider. He's an incredibly nice guy, and a good communicator that brought a few solutions to any problem we encountered, or change I requested to make. At the end of the day, he was consistently a man of his word who was available when I needed communication, and I plan on contracting with him again.

He gave me a fair price, showed up early, protected my hardwood floors, worked neatly and did such a beautiful job on the drywall that even my picky dad would approve. Based on his excellent workmanship and professionalism, I hired him for another job.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is the difference between sheetrock and drywall?

People sometimes use the terms “sheetrock” and “drywall” interchangeably, but they are not exactly the same. Drywall is the industry term for prefabricated sheets of wall, while Sheetrock is the brand name of a type of drywall. Depending on what room is being built, your drywall installation pro will select different thicknesses or grades of drywall. Standard residential drywall is ½-inch thick. Garage walls adjacent to a living space are typically ⅝-inch thick and serve as a firewall. For a garage ceiling, most contractors will use firewall-grade drywall materials to keep your home as safe as possible.

Different types of drywall can be color-coded to indicate their purpose. Purple or green drywall boards are often mold-resistant (MR) and are applied where moisture tends to accumulate, such as in bathrooms and basements or behind tile backsplashes at sinks. These mold-resistant sheets have a fiberglass instead of a paper facing finish to prevent water absorption. Regular drywall is gray or white. The drywall industry is constantly adapting with technology to provide safer and more targeted materials. You can even install soundproofing drywall to help prevent noise transfer through rooms.

How much will it cost to fix a hole in the wall?

If you have a hole in your wall, don’t despair; drywall repair professionals can patch the hole and repaint the surface and no one will be the wiser. The cost to repair a drywall hole depends on the size of the surface area of the damage, the materials and labor required, and (for a minor repair) any minimum service fee the repair company may charge. The actual labor and drywall prices may be lower than the minimum service fee, but pros must ensure their business overhead costs are met when they go out on minor jobs. To help keep costs low once the pros get there, make sure you have the right paint on hand if you want them to do to a touch up after the repair is complete, so you don’t keep them wait (and charging you for their time) while you search in the garage. Here are two examples of average prices for smaller drywall repair jobs:

  • Approximate cost to repair a 5-foot crack in a wall: $125 (labor $75 and materials $50).
  • Approximate cost to repair a 3-foot ceiling crack: $150.

How much does it cost to put up drywall?

The national average cost to hire a drywall installation professional ranges $375-$1,500, depending on the job at hand and where you are in the country. Your drywall installation cost will often be lower if the professional is installing the drywall in a new construction with open access as opposed to a remodel. The square footage of the job, the amount of materials, and the labor required also determine drywall prices. According to drywall pros, materials costs can range from 15 percent to 50 percent of your total project cost, depending on the work you’re having done. Request several quotes from drywall installation companies to find the right fit for your construction project. The quotes may be based on the company’s standard cost per square foot or a calculation of the time estimated to complete the job plus the size of the job plus materials and any travel fees. For example, drywall installation for one or two standard-size rooms could cost $900-$1,500. The cost to hang and tape an outbuilding with approximately 40 drywall sheets at 75 cents per square foot could total $1,450, including 3.75 days of labor for the drywall crew.

How much does it cost to repair drywall?

The national average price range to repair drywall is $210-$300. Drywall prices can vary greatly depending on the size of the hole or crack that needs repair, the amount of materials required, and other factors. Cracks can appear at the seams in your drywall due to uncontrollable factors like your house settling or even minor earthquakes. Drywall, although sturdy, will break with enough impact, so if a dresser falls and crashes into a wall or your have a mishap hammering in nails for artwork, you could need drywall repair. Drywall repair professionals may have a minimum service fee of $100-$150 regardless of the size of the job. This ensures that their business expenses are met anytime they send their crew out to a job. Here are some additional examples of average drywall repair prices:

  • Sand and texture five wall patches: $200 (45 minutes of labor and $40 of materials).
  • Repair a 4x8 section of wall: $225 (labor $150 and materials $75).
  • Replace drywall in an entire bedroom: $1,500 (price varies depending on the number of windows, whether there’s metal trim, etc.).
