I was very impressed with Keith Thompson. He was flexible and accommodating with scheduling, arrived a few minutes early, and did a very good job painting. There was some existing damage to one wall and he pointed it out to me, outlined 2 ways to repair and the pros and cons of each. I went with his suggestion and the room looks fantastic. We'll definitely use him for our painting needs in the future.

Omar was really quick to submit a fair quote and offered to show up within hours of me putting up the job! I had actually expected to wait a whole week. He came promptly when he said he would (within 15 min) and brought all his own tools with him. He got the job (installing a bidet) done quickly and with no mess. If I have any future home repair / upgrades, I’ll definitely go with Omar again!

Matthew was thoughtful, informative and very communicative in the lead-up to my selecting him for some stair repair work. He and his team delivered on time and within budget, consistently providing unsolicited updates as he went. I could not be happier with the work or the interaction through project. I highly recommend Matthew for anyone seeking help with their residential reconstruction projects!

I had a water leak issue that was coming through my downstairs ceiling. Issue was due to a backed up shower drain line. Found Vyron on Thumbtack and he contacted that evening to set a time to come by an assess the job. I also needed base Board for the downstairs as well as reinstalling tile in 4 spots from a previous radiant floor heating leak. Vyron was right on time. His quote was very reasonable so I hired him. The time Vyron arranged to begin my repairs was again, right on time. He immediately began his work with a crew. He unclogged the shower drain, removed the damaged drywall and reinstalled new drywall. Installed all the base board and reinstalled the tile. He quoted a time frame of 6-8 hours. He completed everything in 7 hours. He and his crew were very clean and organized. Vyron is professional and friendly. I highly recommend Vyron Salinas. Thanks Brett Larson

Mauricio came to my home and provided an estimate to paint my Master Bedroom, Closet, Bathroom and Family Room. The price was very reasonable and Mauricio gave me a detailed explanation on how the job would be completed and a time frame. Mauricio and his crew showed up on time and completed the job in record time! They were very professional and neat! He also completed some repair work for me outside of painting. A Big Bonus! I am definitely pleased with the outcome and would hire them again!

Drywall repairs to walls and ceiling. They took pride in their work product and seemed to strive for perfection. Somewhat pricey but well worth the fee.

Rafael is a very skilled and knowledgeable gentleman with a lot of experience who can help trouble shoot problems and find solutions in a very efficient manner. I am so grateful for finding him through this website. He was able to successfully fix our electrical outlet problem and explain the wiring system in our rental space, and to help our landlords understand the root of the problem. He also was able to fix our dishwasher (which was not on our request), in less than 15 minutes! We have his card on our fridge now as our official local handyman. Highly recommend!

I was really impressed by his prices, punctuality, quality of work and his ability to work on my needs. He was working really fast! I would definitely ask him for help next time. Thank you, John!

Juan remodeled our unfinished attic space (about 700+ sq ft) from top to bottom and turned it into a new office studio. He laid out the framework, ran electrical wires, put up insulation and drywall, painted and stained, added window trim, installed hardwood flooring and baseboards, and added storage cabinets. He was able to finish our attic in three weeks, and for a very reasonable price. He is a very hard worker, and really creative with his solutions. He always had helpful advice for me when I wasn't sure what decisions to make. He is now our go to contractor when we need work done around the house. I highly recommend him for his work quality, professional etiquette, and ease of communication. I am very happy with the work he is done, and can't wait to work with him again.

I highly recommend Kris Kaehler and Economy Home Repair. During our initial consultation, Kris was receptive to my project goals, knowledgeable of the industry and market, and candid in giving feedback on what would work well. He gave very good suggestions for exterior paint colors and a clear timeline for completing the job. Because of his professionalism and attention to detail, I asked him to work on interior painting of my entire home, installing floors, and updating two bathrooms. I am more than pleased with his crew's work and staying on schedule. Throughout the exterior and interior projects, Kris was accessible to my calls, informed me of both progress and issues, offered solutions, respected my home, showed regard for my neighbors, looked after his crew's well being, and insisted on doing outstanding work. He is straightforward in his approach to the job and has high standards of workmanship for himself and his crew. If I had any more work to have done, I certainly would ask Kris to consider taking the job!

I recently hired Albert to repair the fence on my rental property in SF due to storm damage. He was prompt & courteous and attentive to my needs as a remote landlord. He gave me a fair estimate and sent pictures of the damage and explained the scope of the repair involved. After approval of the proposal, he executed the work in a timely matter and kept me updated on the progress & worked well with my tenant. Within 2 weeks, another storm caused some further damage to the property and he came promptly and repaired the problem, saving me hundred of dollars in the process. After 2 wonderful experiences, I employed him again to repair some lock and door knob issues that recently occurred as well. I would highly recommend him for any handyman services you might require as he is both honest, co-operative, punctual and trustworthy.

He did a great job with completing the texturing and was even done in one in one day vs the two he originally thought it would take. We would happily use his services again if we need drywall/jointing/texture work completed.

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.
