We hired Marty to replace a damaged faucet, fix our capped pipping, repair damaged wood framing, and replace and patch the drywall in our master bedroom. All in a single day. He did an excellent and meticulous job on the bathroom, and the new faucet works great. The wall was closed up, and Marty even had time to take a look at our garage door opener, which had been malfunctioning for quite some time. The value you get for Marty's time is great. If you have any odds-and-ends around the house that need fixing, don't hesitate to give Marty Klein a try. You won't be disappointed.

Jack is an absolute must hire. He was open to doing a wide variety of jobs and did all of them well. He spent the day fixing a split oak stair tread, patching drywall, changing out shower heads and faucet knobs, moved some cabinets up so my new washer would fit underneath, fixed screws backing out of cabinet doors, mounted a mirror and towel rack...pretty much all those lingering odds and ends. Jack was on time, very personable, cleans up after himself, and absolutely someone I trust. Been looking for someone like Jack for years. Give him a try, you'll be glad you did!

Don was very knowledgeable on what needed to be done on the 2 windows in my room & the living room. The job he did was perfect I am so pleased with the end result you can't tell where all the damage was done after he finished the work. The price he charge was way below what I thought I would have to pay for the repairs! He always cleaned up after he finished doing something. I would highly recommend him on his work he has done. Very professional work ethics!!!

Rome and his guys were great. We originally planned on only doing a couple things, and after seeing the quality of the work on stair repair and popcorn removal, we also had hardwood flooring installed, drywall replaced and tiling done. The work Johnny, Reuben, Jesus and the other guys did was beautiful and the prices Rome gave us were very reasonable. I would recommend him and his guys to anyone looking to get professional quality work done to their home.

I had Dave Dohl of Homestead Contractors do a roof repair on my over 100 year old home. He came out to my home, gave me a quote on the work, and started the job the next day. He was efficient and extremely helpful. The quality of his work was excellent and he did a very good cleanup after the job was through. After the roof was done, he did some trim painting on the front of my house which improved the street view of my house a lot. I would highly recommend Dave Dohl to anyone in the Moodus/East Haddam or Middlesex county area. I would definitely use Homestead Contractors again.

Pedro was a pleasure to work with. He was on time, professional and kind and did his work quickly and efficiently. The finish product looks great even with some trickier spots. He even patched up a little extra part that was part of the original and didn’t charge me extra for it. I will be using him for any future drywall needs.

When Nick gets into a project he is a "ninja". His work is clean, professional and precise. He has done a variety of projects for us, but the one with which I was most impressed was when he replaced the corner of a structure attached to our house. The corner was rotted from water damage and he was able to repair it and reuse the vinyl siding we have so that you wouldn't know anything had been done there. Nice!

We really appreciate your assistance with our roof repair. Though it was a small job, we received prompt communication and a fair price. Also, the owner came and did the job himself which was very nice to see. We will keep him in mind for any future work we need done.

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.).
