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!!!

We recently bought an older fixer upper and Jose has helped us with several jobs. He removed popcorn ceiling, texturized, put in new drywall and pot lights, did painting, installed floor tile, and is now tiling my new shower. He has a lot of overall construction experience and brings important knowledge to the job. His work has been quality and looks really nice. His pricing is very competitive and he is responsive and easy to work with. We had a few last minute delays on our end getting materials and he kindly rescheduled several times. We are going to work with him on some outside hardscape and fencing as well. We highly recommend Jose and his team. (I will add some photos soon)

Brian did a good job! You should hire him for your next job. - Communication: Great. He was very responsive on Thumbtack, and clear with pricing in his reply. Also ongoing scheduling communication after hiring (text) was responsive and clear also. - He was prompt (even a bit early) for the appointment. - After a quick tour of the room, he began to setup and get to work preparing the surface and protecting my belongings. - He meticulously prepared the surfaces (caulking corners, filling holes, sanding down spots, removing hardware), and the result of doing so was good. - He was respectful of my things (all of my personal belongings including laptops, phones etc. were there). - He brought/used all his own equipment including a fan to dry between coats. - I bought the higher quality Dunn-Edwards paints he recommended and it worked out well for both of us. He let me use his contractor discount. - Color choice support, though admitting not his strength, he used his girlfriend's great sense of color to help me narrow down my color. - He did at least two coats and painted the doors and trim too. - He worked for about 7 hours straight including setup/teardown, and came back and finished for 3 additional hours (a la carte).

I have a few rental houses, I can always depend on David to give me quality work and a fair price. What I appreciate most is his diversity, it is rare to find an individual that I would trust in my personal home as well as my rentals. I need to rely on someone who can do many things, electrical, plumbing, drywall, building decks, & roofing you name it he can do it. I've had a working relationship with David for over 20 years. He does a great job! I've posted a large tile job he did for me a few years back and it still is in Great shape. David laid a wood floor in my home as well. I've received many compliments on how beautiful it is. Strongly recommend him!

We had a leaking dishwasher that apparently had been leaking for some time without our knowledge and caused some water damage. We had him demolish part of our kitchen because the problem was somewhat extensive and put in new cupboards and a kitchen sink, as well as repair some drywall and he did a brilliant job. I will definitely hire Miguel in the future without hesitation. I contacted Thumbtack late Friday afternoon, approx 5-6pm and I saw that I had a response from Miguel by 8.15pm. I replied not expecting a response until the next morning, but instead I had an appt for Miguel to come out and inspect the job the next day and he started work on the following day (Sunday) and completed the job on Monday. Miguel's prices are more than reasonable and I am glad I found him.

Hyde Handcraft was one of the most professional, hard working and honest contractors I have ever worked with! When considering which contractor to hire I had multiple bids. Hyde gave a very fair bid but was actually not the cheapest. I decided to use them based on the other reviews on Thumbtack. I am so glad I did! They always showed up when they said they were going to, or they would give plenty of notice to a change in time. They moved furniture carefully and cleaned up every space cleaner than it was before! They were so kind to our kids always talking to them and never annoyed at the constant questions from our 2 year old :). They put so much pride in their work...while installing all of our crown molding it would have been easy to not work with the crooked wall. Yet they spent way more time than they planned making it look perfect! They also installed exterior doors for us and they did an amazing job! I will definitely be using Hyde Handcraft again for any other work I need done and I highly recommend them to anybody who wants a fair price, professional contractors and outstanding quality. Josiah

Thank you Esposito Drywall for removing the acoustic ceilings, applying new texture and fixing many of the walls that needed repairs. The work you did was fantastic, and would definitely recommend you again in the future. Also, not only did you complete the job timely, but you left the home immaculate. You are amazing!

I could not give a higher rating for Abe. This is an extraordinarily kind, honest, hardworking, and likeable guy. He does great work for a good price. He communicated through every step of the process and the end product was wonderful. He did a bunch of misc things for us, including drywall, insulation, and duct work. He is very talented and knows his way around most every trade. Best of all, you can't help but feel comfortable to have him around your home. He is just a great guy and a reliable, affordable option when you don't want to do the work yourself. I'll be hiring him again, that is for sure.

Menifee Drywall is one of the best vendors I have had the pleasure of using. Not only were they a good value and took the extra time to ensure that all of the requirements were met, Jessie also performed under less-than-ideal conditions as the house was being renovated. I certainly recommend this vendor.

Javier was very responsive throughout the entire process from start to finish. He was quick to respond with a quote, answer questions, and confirm day/time to perform the work. He provided a firm quote, estimated timeframe, and the resulting drywall repair was excellent, you couldn't tell at all there was a hole there before. Javier is professional and very clean before, during, and after, the work. I recommend him and will be using again!

GW Construction helped me with a remodel. The job consisted of uprighting a 12 ft. support beam and approximately 25 drywall panels. The price was a lot less than other contractors that bid on the job and they completed the job in one week. Matt and Jody communicated with me on a daily basis asking how the job was going. They were absolutely dedicated to my satisfaction. The contractors that worked on the project were professional and made me laugh all day long. They even let me know when they saw a better idea for my remodel or saw something that we needed to tweak to make it look better. No fuss, no hassle, no problems. Matt gives you his price and sticks to it, even if something comes up and a little more work needs to be done. Overall a great experience and a job well done!

I though John communicated very well during our construction project. He was very flexible on any changes. Most contractors are very flaky; not showing up on time or wanting to get paid before the project is completed. You will not go wrong hiring John. He is top shelf.

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.).
