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.

I had a large sliding door that had been stuck in the wall for more than 50 years. Matt looked at the door the day after I posted my request., recommended an approach and had it fixed and working on his next visit. I have engaged him to do a number of other items at this point. Fast, very good quality work at a reasonable price. Highly recommend.

We found Salinas home remodeling services most helpful in several ways. Services done for us included electrical wiring, plumbing installation, wall and ceiling painting with texture applications. Also, bathtub, sink and appliance installation. All work was done at high standards. Note: we also experienced generous and positive attitudes from soft spoken professionals, and received on time service. Above all, we have memories of his installation process that are most rewarding. Thank You, Mr. Vyron Salinas and his helper Pablo. Yours truly, Nicholas Adkins

I hired Mauricio to paint a single interior wall in an office building. He did a great job, and came by a day early to confirm the color choice. He was very professional and was easy to communicate with via text (we all know its the easiest way). I highly recommend Mauricio!

Jasper did a great job with installing floating shelves in our kitchen and living room. They look like they were intentionally built into the house and fit snugly against the walls and fireplace.

Bogdan was a gift. He and his team installed ~2000 SQft of Bamboo Hardwood floors, a marble entry way, tile floor in the laundry room and bath, built a tile shower from scratch, matched and installed granite in a half bath and full guest bath, and repaired several small but important plumbing issues along the way. Bogdan was respectful and considerate of our priorities. He worked with us with patience, always checking in to make sure we were happy with the choices and installation. For example, he was able to create a seamless transition between the tile and hardwood and marble that made a big difference in how the flooring flows- no tripping on t-moulding ! I would happily recommend Bogdan for home improvement projects.

Eduardo and his team have decades of vast experience. Prior to forming his own business, Eduardo was in charge of the 'A-Team' for one of the highest regarded painting companies in the East Bay. We initially met when we hired his previous employer to paint the exterior of our home/ garage. Having a newborn child, we were very concerned that the paint job was handled thoughtfully by experts trained in effectively handling the homes with lead paint. Eduardo and he crew did an excellent job. Since then (nearly 11 years later) we have reached to Eduardo for: Interior paint/repairs when putting previous home on the market, move-in interior paint job for subsequent home (nearly nine years ago and still looks great!), exterior two-story duplex for my mother-in-law, wallpaper stripping, light fixture installation, plumbing work, wall patching, dry wall replacement, dry rot repair, deck repair/restoration even toilet replacement. If Eduardo can't do it, he knows someone that can (his contact assisted my mother-in-law with an emergency busted hot water heater replacement)! He does tend to book out so it's helpful plan you job in advance if you have a rigid timeline. If you are a bit flexible he can sometimes sneak in an interior job if Mother Nature isn't cooperating for his exterior jobs. He snuck in a three-day impromptu stairwell, bathroom, hallway and laundry room job for us last week, spaces that we had neglected to freshen up prior to our move in in 2009. Couldn't be happier with the results! I have recommended him countless times over the years to friends, neighbors and family and I have only heard positive feedback about him and the high quality of his work. He is professional and trustworthy. Bonus: having Eduardo and his team work in/around our home is always a pleasure as they are friendly & respectful and my kids adore 'em!

This was a small job, terminating a special roof mounted-fan. I gave Rafael my requirements for a switch and a thermostat cut-off, and after some discussion about the difficulties of running in-wall wiring behind the wooden panel wall, suggested a way to the wires which was code compliant and far less obtrusive after painting than I first feared. He shopped around at several supply stores to find just the right parts for the project. He and his assistant did a great job as you can see from the pictures! He was also very prompt.

Ricky and his dad were so easy to work with. They came by before performing the job to see what supplies they would need and to look at the space. They explained everything that needed to be done and gave us an estimate beforehand for the job as well as the supplies. On the day of, they showed up on time. The job was completed quickly and better than we had hoped. They took what we thought was a hopeless task and did it. We had to wall heaters removed and needed the holes patched up. There was old paneling that needed to be matched, and somehow they were able to almost perfectly match the existing paneling. They even sanded the edges to give the wood a rounded look. We may sand the area down a bit more just to make it more flush, but overall we are very happy with the quality of the work. We will definitely contact Valenz Construction if we have any other jobs around the house. See the before and after pics of the downstairs wall. It's so nice to no longer have a huge unwanted opening in our walls. Thanks guys!

Juan put up trim and baseboard on newly textured and painted walls. He is so professional. He met my husband at home depot to buy supplies. Arrived on time, was really efficient and cleaned up really well before he left. He walked us through everything he did and told us how to proceed (painting and sanding) I appreciated the flat rate vs hourly for the job I posted. We’ve already talked about another small project I would like him to do for us. Thanks Juan!

Kris responded promptly to my project request. And even though we decided to move forward with a wooden retaining wall, instead of a concrete wall, he offered great advice on how to improve the waterproofing and longevity of the wood wall. I appreciate his professionalism and wouldn’t hesitate to contact Kris for future home improvement projects.

Mike and his team were great! We had them in our office to paint a few walls that had fallen victim to chair scrapes amongst other things. I was able to have Mike come out in less than 24 hours after chatting with him about what we needed done which was EXTREMELY APPRECIATED! His team did a great job and they were very efficient. Will definitely contact them again for future painting needs.

We needed to tear out some carpet and replace it with laminate flooring, as well as paint the walls and caulk the sinks. Tomas and his crew showed up on time and did a great job on very short notice. I would gladly hire him again. His prices are very reasonable.

Oscar textured the walls of two rooms where there had previously been wood paneling. He was such a fast no nonsense worker! Great quality texturing and provided several options at a reasonable price. We'll definitely hire him again for any other drywall needs.

Sebastian and his crew were excellent for our project. We had a pretty unique request where we asked him to build a substantial retaining wall, a decorative wood wall on top of that, a back deck, and another fence. It was mostly a cosmetic, hardscaping job to disguise some strange "SF-Style" weird hillside that abuts one side of our yard. I had much of the creative vision, but Sebastian brought a ton of great ideas, and excellent execution with, what I perceive to be, top craftsmanship. I will hire him again to do more work at our place. Also, he is a very chill guy, so that helped with our pace. We are not intense (I hope), but we demanded excellent, high-end work. He used top-end materials (ipe wood) and stainless steel hardware. He really matched our style.

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.
