"Job #3...Remove damaged drywall from lower half of my main floor powder room and install new drywall. Also replaced old wax ring under my toilet (since it had to be moved while doing the drywall) with a new one. Job #4...Fix electrical outlets in the garage that weren’t working (2) and install new box and cover on a third outlet. Tim ended up moving one of the outlets down farther from its original location so that I could have better access to it. I can assure you that all of the work performed was done extremely well, with attention to detail, care and professionalism. Tim and his crew went over the fine details of every job until it was done to perfection. Every one of the guys working here were extremely polite, professional, considerate, hard working and very dependable. Due to the large scoop of the projects that were being done they had to come back several days to do all the work. They were always on time, always explained what they were going to do, they told me what they had done that day, and what they planned to do next. They were very thorough, and knowledgeable. They communicated well and were very respectful. Tim always called me before he came to let me know exactly when he would be here. I really couldn’t have asked for a better group of guys to be working on my house and I couldn’t be more pleased with the finished product. I would very highly recommend Tim and Rushing Solutions to anyone. I have them already scheduled to come back and due a multitude of more projects that I had been putting off. Now that I have found Tim and Rushing Solutions I feel confident that almost any issue that comes up I can call upon Tim and he can handle it. What a great feeling it is to have someone like him available to me whenever I need something done. And for such a reasonable price!! I would not hesitate to refer my friends and family to this company. They really are a great bunch of guys to work with!! Thanks again Tim for all your wonderful work, time and efforts!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.).

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 will it cost to fix a hole in the wall?

Here are two examples of average prices for smaller drywall repair jobs that could be similar to fixing a hole in the wall:

  • 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.
