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!!!

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.

River was very professional and arrived at the time we set. I hired them to repair some plaster that had water damage along side the bathtub. He analyzed the area and found that the bathtub seal was deteriorated so water was leaking into the walls. He fixed the leak which we wouldn’t have known about, applied a fast drying plaster, and painted the area with some left over paint we had in the garage. Basically he did more than I initially thought I needed in less time than we had planned. Very reasonable pricing and quality work. I would hire them again.

I had extensive repairs done to my patio cover as many pieces of wood were damaged and needed to be removed and replaced. Robin was friendly and courteous and did an excellent job, which will allow me to enjoy the patio cover for several more years. He did a good job of cleaning up each day and hauling away all the debris and old scraps of wood. Overall, I am very satisfied with the work he did on our patio.

We will definitely call Ryan again anytime we need a handyman. His prices are reasonable and we are very pleased we decided to hire him.He installed a new garbage disposal and it is working great. Ryan is knowledgeable about a wide range of home repair needs and replaced an electrical outlet for us as well. We had been having trouble with an outlet on our porch and when I mentioned it to him as he was leaving, he pulled a new one out of his extensive tool kit and fixed it on the spot. I highly recommend him for both the quality of his work and his friendly, positive attitude.

Zuriel, is the best person I’ve ever had come and work on my projects. Very professional from the initial phone call, showing up on time, assessment of the project and providing constant updates to me and my sister. He had a person repair my broken water pipe, and then he drywalled the area after a few days to determine if the pipes were not leaking. Then another few days of painting and texture on the ceiling, drying and repeat. He matched the paints perfectly. Great value for the price and expertise. My schedule was chaotic and he worked around it and also with my sis to get the job completed on time. If he was running late, he sent me a text or called. I’m so pleased that I’ve walked him thru my house showing other projects. I know he is advertised as a painter but he is knowledgeable about other house maintenance projects.

I had him come to remove a ceiling fan and install a new ceiling fan and wall switch. Because did such a nice job, I had him remove and install two bath faucets one of which needed more repair than I thought. He also repaired my tub faucet which I knew needed lots of work. If I need anymore repairs, I will definitely call him.

Jerry was one of several who bid a job to repair masonry, stucco and paint a wall for me. I am extremely pleased that I hired him. He was punctual and polite in his responses and consistently showed up early or on time for the promised work. His work was neat and respectful of others, as well as professionally done. I definitely recommend him.

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.

They responded immediately to my request. Came out on a Saturday to give me the estimate, began work on Monday and finished Tuesday. His worker was excellent, hard working, showed up on time, and did a quality painting job, as well as an exceptional drywall patch. Great prep work and clean up too. I would feel very comfortable hiring them again, and in recommending them to my friends.

Florin did an excellent job installing the marble for a specialized walk in bath surround and fixing the drywall from the demolition of our previous bath/shower. Florin also worked well with our plumber to get the job done correctly. The marble looks beautiful, I recommend BCD Construction wholeheartedly to install anyone's marble or tile!

Did great job installing new insulation and drywall in our garage. The job was completed ahead of time, and everything looks great. It’s a small thing, but the cleanup was well done, too. He’s a friendly guy. Polite, professional, and easy to work with. I’ll hire again for another upcoming project.

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 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.).

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
