We have had Ron do several small projects in our home: install a bathroom vanity and faucets; patching a hole in our drywall. All projects were done professionally and at a very reasonable price. We have other projects that we will ask his help with in the future.

Tim Williams did a very professional repair job for a difficult shower leak repair. His final cost came close to his original estimate and the repair was clearly of a very high quality and should last a very long time. I was impressed enough to ask him for a quote for another future repair of my garage floor. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to others in the future. Only downside was the cost being higher than I had wanted, but such is often the case.

Jason did a great job installing electrical wiring in our attic so we can hang overhead lighting. He understood we didn’t want to do drywall repair and so he did all necessary installation from the attic without cutting into the wall. He also showed much flexibility in appointments and with an unfinished attic that proved to be a difficult space to work in.

Mario repaired a drywall area that was bulging (due to some work that was performed by some hardwood flooring professionals on our first floor some time ago) in the stairway leading to our lower level, did some drywall repair patchwork throughout the house, and painted our entire basement/family room area (a very large room)...all in less than 3 days, at a fair and reasonable price. Mario's workmanship was spectacular in all respects. Moreover, he is an absolute delight to have around the house...you will not find a nicer man or a better professional. I would use Mario again for any drywall and/or painting job of any size without any reservation whatsoever. PS...the 5 star rating is not high enough!

Will and his team helped me out of a jam at the last minute! We had a shoddy drywall repair after an electrician cut holes in our ceiling for can lights installation. My daughter's first birthday party was just two days away, and Will changed his schedule around to fit us in and get it done before the party! Not to mention, the work was perfect and the rate was extremely reasonable. Can't beat that! I wouldn't hesitate to hire Will again or refer him to friends and family. Thanks Will!

I received several lowball quotes from companies that had not visited the site. I saw a few outrageous quotes from companies that tried to tell me that I needed to replace work that was only a few months old and/or insisted on quoting a warranty I didn't want. Mike and his team provided a fair quote and took care of a few minor additional problems at no charge. His team came and completed the job quickly and left the work site clean. I really appreciated his integrity, courtesy, and worksmanship. I'd recommend QHR to anyone needing reliable roof repair!

Krzysztof arrived early & knocked out this drywall/sanding & lighting installation project impressively. The job required finishing a project that was started by someone else months ago, which meant there were bound to be some mysteries as to how the previous worker had configured the electrical wiring in the bathroom as Krzysztof installed new lighting. However when faced with a puzzling situation he remained totally professional & with a bit of troubleshooting the lighting was installed cleanly, properly, efficiently and most importantly, safely. The drywall looks great (I'm a painter so I am painting it myself). He provided the ideal prep work which makes my job much easier & this room will look fantastic when all is said & done. I definitely recommend hiring "Kris" . Very professional, does solid work, very knowledgeable & price is very reasonable for this type of labor. Thumbs up

Lyndell did an outstanding job on our powder room. He came to our home to give us an estimate. He told what exactly needed to be done. He showed me the area needing repairs. Other companies expanded the area of repair in their estimates. He worked tirelessly on the project. The powder room looks like no work was ever done. Excellent. I highly recommend Lyndell's Home Remodel and Repair.

I hired BC to install drywall on a newly built wall when it became clear that my carpenter couldn't do it properly. BC saved the day. I was impressed with the speed and efficiency of his work and would hire again for my next project.

Very professional work, applied drywall to a complicated situation involving an exposed wall with external piping. Per my request he created openings for certain access pipes but did this in an artful manner. Otis is a cheerful professional who completed the work promptly in a short period of time and left my condo without any debris or signs he was there, just a perfect wall. Very reasonable price.

We were so very pleased with our experience with Pro-One Builders and Painters. They did an excellent job of repairing damaged areas of our cedar siding and painting the entire house. Even more, they did an amazing job repairing our very old, very ugly front porch. The end result was fantastic, and we are enjoying the porch every day. Bogdan and his project manager Matthew were very communicative throughout the process and easy to reach with any questions. We would definitely refer this company to any family and friends who need are looking for construction or painting work.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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?

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.

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.
