My partner and I interviewed four electricians before we found Mario. Instantly after the meeting, we knew we found our guy. Mario is responsible, communicative, and a straight-shooter. He's very knowledgeable about electrical work and you'll be impressed by his desire to implement best practices. We enlisted Mario to install two brakers, additional wall outlets, and kitchen lighting in our studio. He went above and beyond -- in addition to our original ask, he helped us with installation of the ceiling fan and outdoor sensor lights. We were so impressed by his professionalism and dedication to the task. He went out of his way to ensure our other contractors (general handymen and dry wall installer) were working in conjunction with his finished product. We're going to be remodeling our office next and will definitely be calling Mario back to help us out with new electrical! Thanks so much Mario (and congrats on your newborn)!

James was amazing - he went above and beyond on installing my vanities, but I also hired him to do all my kitchen recessed lighting and did a great job in bypassing the ballast (or blaster! - inside joke). I will continue to hire James for any other needs I will have in the future.

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.

Glad I hired Rob instead of taking the advice of my plumbing company to replace my two toilets. Rob fixed them and only replaced faulty parts, saving me lots of money. Communicating with Rob was very convenient. He asked I text him pictures of the toilet parts. He then researched them and order replacement parts on my behalf, thus saving me time as well. I will definitely retain Rob's services for future maintenance and remodeling work for my home. Great guy to have a conversation with too :)

Johnny is a very responsive guy when it comes to the projects he chooses to take on and his communication, as well as his work, is top-notch. He did some drywall work for us over at a local college recently and kept me posted every step of the way about where the project was, when it would be done, etc. Long story short, if your looking for somebody who does good work at a good price and is skilled in multiple trades, I would give Johnny a call!

We recently had our home painted and wanted to add exterior coach lights to both sides of the garage door. We had several quotes for the job (using same materials) and Mike's quote was the most reasonable of them all. We set up an appointment for the job and Mike not only showed up on time but also called to let us know he was on his way (this is rare with most contractors/installers). He performed the work promptly and added a photo cell so the lights turn on at night and off in the morning by themselves. This exterior accent lighting was the finishing touch for our home improvement project which now also adds a bit more security to our dwelling.We were extremely happy with Mike's friendly service, highly recommend him and plan to use him again in the future. American Castles and Mike Tay are class acts!

My experience hiring Sean was positive. I needed an electrician for wiring, outlet and breaker changes. Sean messaged me quickly with a detailed breakdown of costs. Communication was good. On the day of my appointment, he arrived with all the correct equipment, worked diligently without complaints despite it being a hot day and my A/C was broken, explained his work when asked, and was overall nice. I'd hire again for more electrical jobs.

Scott is solid, honest, conscientious and provides quality workmanship. He responded promptly & responsibly, and started & completed the installation of my pet door when he said he would, including shopping for supplies and providing receipts. He took initiative to understand the operation of the unit, and figured out the most professional method for a great-looking result, including going the extra mile to caulk and finish edges. I am hiring him again for additional projects, such as Solatubes installation, and I have recommended him to clients and friends. Very pleased to have found him!

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.

Fausto was reasonably priced and showed up on time with his associate, Jose and got straight to work. They did an outstanding job, even providing some solutions for a drapery rod installation that I had no idea how to address and made it look beautiful! They were so trustworthy, I even left them in my home alone while I ran to the store. They even vacuumed and cleaned any drywall from drilling. I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THEM, and will definitely hire them again for other projects. Thank you, Fausto and Jose!! 5 Star Service, for sure!!

HIGHLY recommend! Edwin and his team were RELIABLE, professional, honest and very hardworking. They painted my 3b/3ba home from top to bottom. He completed it all and applied the new baseboards with quick turn around. He was reasonably priced compared to several other quotes that I got. He also helped with some minor handyman work. I would most definitely hire him to paint again. He was wonderful to work with!!

I am very happy with the quality of Juan's work. With other contractors giving excuses and hesitation to even looking at the job, Juan examined and new exactly what was needed. He relocated two outlets installed a laundry box, update the fixtures, fixed one of the bathroom doors and cleaned up in a short time frame. I'm definitely asking for his assistant in the future. On time, professional and knowledgeable. Thanks Juan!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.).
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
