We bought a new TV and wanted to mount it on the wall in our apartment. Realized shortly after moving in that the wall was cement, and needed some extra help (didn't have the tools to drill through the cement and didn't want to fuss buying new stuff). After researching and fielding different offers, we eventually hired Lopez Home Improvement LLC. Thought this would be an easy job -- it wasn't. I've drilled through cement before, but this stuff was strong. Real strong. Overall, Walter came in prepared and professional. He worked non-stop and completed the job in an efficient manner. All I can say is I appreciate his patience throughout the time he was here -- it wasn't an easy job to say the least. But above all else, we couldn't be happier with the result. Did I mention he charged us an extremely favorable rate to complete this job? I would easily recommend. Worth every penny.

Harry did a terrific job in every respect — from installing blinds, a smoke detector, and a full length mirror, to hanging cabinets and various pieces of art (including one more than 7 feet wide, which he mounted on a plaster wall perfectly level), fixing an outdoor gate, and staining outdoor steps. All the work was done with meticulous care and concern to be meeting our needs. We will definitely have him back for other projects. It's a privilege to recommend him to others!

We recently hired Dino & Sons to paint several rooms in our home, a couple of which also required a bit of replastering due to holes in the wall from the previous owners. From the time we posted the project, Sonny was very quick to respond, prompt in arriving to give us an estimate and flexible (as we were a bit delayed in finalizing our color selections). Having met with 3 other painters, Sonny was the only one that took notes as we showed him the rooms we wanted painted. He also was the only one to leave a Benjamin Moore Color Deck to help us in selecting colors. We ultimately chose Dino & Sons due as a result of how responsive and professional Sonny was and are glad we did. Sonny and his crew member were very professional and efficient in their work. There were a few other minor things that Sonny noticed needed touching up and offered to do so at no additional charge. We have a few more projects we will need to complete in the coming months and will definitely reach out to Dino & Sons.

We wanted to take down a wall to open up the upstairs hallway. Jacques came at 7:30am and by 4pm he was done! I'm really satisfied. Jacques works so well and so quickly. It looks so much better! We will definitely recommend him to our friends and family and will be using his service in the future.

Nelson came to help me even though it was a last min late day call. He and his partner came and repaired all the electrical problems around my house including the hard-to-reach high up wall areas. His price was very reasonable for the quality work that he performed. Very pleasant to do business with. Thank you. Greenwich, CT

I hired Gamboa painting to paint my kitchen cabinets, walls and ceiling. It wasn't until I had seen Gamboa's work that I was comfortable having my kitchen cabinets spray painted. Finding the right person to do the job is critical in cabinet painting because imperfections show easily and durability is very important. Gamboa's painting did an excellent job patching and preparing the walls and ceiling as well. They were neat, easy to communicate with and there was never any disagreement about the scope of the job or agreed upon price. It was a pleasure dealing with Carlos and his crew and I highly recommend his company.

Marcelo and Stenio are extremely professional. They took time to make sure the workmanship of our carpentry project was top-notch. Any on the spot design decisions were made together and seamlessly so construction was not slowed down. They are very courteous and patient, happily working around our bustling family. The job was completed ahead of schedule and they stayed with us until it was 100 percent complete. I highly recommend them. Tracy Chalifoux

I liked that the owner gave me a total price for the project and not a per hour with a huge first hour price of $180+ like the other handymen co’s. The assembly price would be more than the item itself! Since Jeff was honest and didn’t price gauge me he gets to bid on thousands of dollars of other projects I need done ASAP. Great Job!

Pedro was awesome! He came when he said he was going to and went out of his way to get the job done for us. We needed the ceiling and walls done in a kitchen. We were on a time crunch so he even made himself available on the weekend. We chose him because other reviewers said he worked hard. That was so true. He did an amazing job, has pride in his work and his price was reasonable. I wish I could post the before and after photos but I'm currently in Florida with my parents.

Where to begin? We came home from vacation to find out we had some frozen pipes. The owner and his crew promptly got to work with state of the art infrared tools to locate our problem pipes. They were able to thaw the pipes, replaces broken fittings, and the sheetrock on the walls. Start to finish Joe and his crew went above and beyond our expectations and all we had to do was slap some paint on the walls. They even offered to take care of that, but we did not have the paint.its hard to believe there are still companies with that level of professionalism. We will defiantly keep them in mind for future projects, and would recommend them to anyone needing work done.

We hired Mike last fall for a major project of removing 26 large multi-sized contemporary windows, and to replace them with new construction windows. A massive and daunting task when considering the scope of the project. He and his proficient work crew did an exemplary job finalizing the project beyond our expectations. We appreciated his ongoing communication, professional skills, attention to detail, the cleanliness of the worksite, and respect for our home. He completed the project, within the budget, which was a fair and competitive price and in a timely manner. Mike takes pride in his work, and no corners are cut. We recently rehired Mike to replace 3 multi-paneled sliding glass doors with stationary side panels which was also done equally well. We would highly recommend Goodman Builders to anyone seeking professional work, a knowledgeable, skilled, and respectful work crew, and value for your dollar.

So happy with the work of Eswin &JDA General Contracting did for us! The project was completed in one day- whitewash of a tall brick fireplace wall. Eswin promptly replied to my initial request, he came to our appointment on time, well prepared with the estimate + the time frame for the project. He made several very important and useful suggestions (color-wise! - not to use just stark white!) He protected the areas around, he used a scaffold not a ladder; and he left the place impeccably clean. The room has been transformed and updated from the 1980s to now! THANK YOU!

Joe, first of all thank you! My family and I are very thankful we found you. I am sure we will talk again in the near future. Martelle Builders are nothing short of professional, responsible, but most of all AMAZING at what they do. I have built a few houses and I have had my share of terrible contractors but Martelle Builders by far exceeded all expectations. There are contractors that will just go into a job and just do it, and then there is Martelle Builders, who treats his job as these houses were of his own. It is more than just the money for these guys. Oh, and did I mention they framed my new construction mid-winter?? Do NOT hesitate to hire MB... I am very glad I didn't.

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.).
