"Oscar was easy to contact. We had 6 holes from some complicated plumbing and electrical work that had been done in our home, many in hard to work in areas where getting access seemed close to impossible for us. I sent him pictures of the drywall needing to be patched. We made an appointment on Friday with him for Saturday at 8AM and he was right on time. We walked through the house talked obout our expectations and he pointed out some problematic issues about our electrical and plumbing, offering choices on how he could proceed. He went right to work, and worked really hard for over 4 hours then he was done. We are thrilled with the results, he matched our existing textured walls perfectly, no small feat. All our drywall looks original now, not patched. His fee was entirely reasonable if not an outright bargain. When he left there was some very small clean up to do on our end. Removing tape after everything dried. We wiped down a counter a bathroom floor where some drywall dust had wandered. We expected this and knew we were not paying for “white glove” service where a team enters in cotton booties leaving every surface dustless. I would not hesitate to use him again, and would recommend him highly, unless your the type of client that appealed at the idea dusting up some very small area. He is a true professional. We got a quote on what it would cost to detexture our home, which was higher than we hopped, but then he pointed out all sorts of details we hadn’t thought of that it would take to get a perfect finish and it totally made sense. When we decide to go ahead with that job he’ll definitely be the guy we use."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is the best way to remove wallpaper?

There are several proven methods for wallpaper removal; each has its pros and cons, but some are definitely easier. Peeling is usually the least painful, followed by soaking and stripping. Dry-stripping is the next most time-consuming, and steaming the most work. The average wallpaper removal job costs between $360 and $560. The method of removal can affect the cost, as steaming takes longer than peeling and will therefore typically cost more. Peeling wallpaper off is usually the quickest method. To see if your wallpaper can be peeled off, try gently edging up a corner and carefully peeling the paper off the wall in strips. If you can’t peel, then you’ll have to score and strip it, either by dry-stripping or by soaking and then stripping. Plaster walls can withstand moisture and can stand up to soaking and stripping, but drywall should not be soaked. For very stubborn wallpaper, steaming may be necessary, which is time-consuming but effective. If you prefer not to attempt these methods yourself, wallpaper removal pros have the proper tools and experience to quickly take down wallpaper and also repair any damage to your walls.

How much does it cost to remove wallpaper in a room?

The national wallpaper removal cost averages $360-$560, which will typically include multiple rooms. Pros often charge by the square foot to remove egregious wallpaper that is long past its prime. Wallpaper removal cost may range anywhere from 60 cents to $1.50 or more per square foot. A pro may estimate removal costs ranging between $160 and $300 for a medium-sized room. Costs can vary due to ceiling height, and some pros add a skim coat to make repainting or re-papering smoother. Here are some examples of average costs to remove wallpaper:
