I needed a handyman urgently to fix some terrible drywall repair work that was done by another company. They responded immediately to my request and were able to have someone at my house within 48 hours. They arrived on time at 7am in the morning, brought all of the necessary materials, explained exactly what they were going to do to fix the problem and worked very quickly. I will likely be going to Fixer for all of my handyman needs from now on. Highly recommended.

During an inside inspection, People's gas found 2 coupled flex pipes connected to our dryer and decided to disconnect our dryer and cap the connection (even though there was no gas leak). This left my spouse and I going to the laundromat for about a month and a half. I tried to hire a plumber through Westward, our condo management company, and that never panned out. so decided to look elsewhere for a solution. I signed up for Thumbtack and set up my project. Salvo with ISA Euro Pro Construction responded within an hour of my posting, we communicated about a time to come out, and they met me at my condo the next day. We'd received quotes to open the wall and that would have been a lot of time, materials + drywall and a lot of labor time. Salvo and Vito came up with a very nice and innovative solution to extend the pipe downward on the wall behind the washer and then installed a 5 foot flex pipe across to the dryer. The install looks great and I'm very happy with the final product. I am extremely satisfied with their solution, their professionalism, and the price; I highly recommend ISA Euro Pro Construction.

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.

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.

Ben did a great job – better than the original installation. He came back a couple times to install drywall behind the vanity, sand it, and paint it. I am thrilled with his work.

Brandon helped repair a rotting railing on our deck. He worked diligently on the repair and cleaned up the entire work area when he was finished. The rotting wood extended beyond what I saw and beyond his original quote. Brandon never once said anything about it will cost more because.... he was going to stick to his quote and do what it took to get it done.

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

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.

The price was reasonable - 2 day job to paint roughly 1,000 square feet of wall / ceiling space - 2 coats plus a couple small dry wall repairs. Friendly. They showed up on time and did a great job. Moved furniture & pictures from the walls that were too large for me to move. Returned all furniture and pictures to their locations. Cleaned up from day one to day two. I would rehire for another painting job.

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.

Michael came by and gave a free itemized estimate on several areas of my home, which allowed me to do the work as time and budget would allow. The estimates were very reasonable. We scheduled an appointment to first start on my powder room. He repaired drywall, painted, installed a toilet paper holder, towel ring and hung a mirror. He showed up on time and days after would call if he was running a few minutes late. We had broken our towel bar which left a hole in the wall. My husband had done a very poor patch job. Michael made it look like a hole had never existed. Michael suggested we go with a towel ring instead of a towel bar which was more appropriate for the size of the room. Great suggestion. He also removed a large mirror that had been glued to the wall. He carefully and neatly removed the mirror and immediately used his own vacuum to clean the little debris that remained. He then miraculously repaired the drywall. Prior to painting, he removed the exhaust cover and vacuumed the dust from the exhaust, removed the medicine cabinet and taped off the appropriate areas. He pays close attention to detail and is very neat. He made sure I had cleaned the exhaust cover and medicine cabinet before replacing them. A day or two later he painted the walls and ceiling. I was very indecisive about the paint color and chose a different finish than what Michael had recommended, which caused us to lose a day. Michael was very patient and did not charge me an additional fee. I should have listened to his expertise because his original recommendation was the right choice. The previous toilet paper holder had been drilled through tile on the wall. The new holder had different measurements and mounting system. He took his time and thought of a way to configure the new one so that it fit without ruining the existing tile. He also screwed in the new bronze outlet covers I purchased. One of the screws that came with the cover was too long. Michael took the screw from the original one and used a finishing marker to cover the head so that it matched the bronze. It this small attention to detail that impressed me. Michael took pride in everything he did, both large and small. He is very clean, detail oriented, educates you about the process and will exceed your expectations. I highly recommend Michael. You will not be disappointed.

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.).
