2 TV and soundbar installs, one into brick and one into drywall. The job was somewhat more complicated due to the setup, and it took significantly longer than expected. But Barry handled it all with good humor, and in the end, the job was done well.

Jay was great to work with! This was a challenging job in an original plantation home with 14' ceilings and 12" stacked crown molding. Jay and his guys did an excellent job finishing drywall and painting. In fact, they even had to paint the ceiling again because of a change order on the paint color! The communication was fantastic, the workmanship was great, and the price was very fair. I will happily work with Jay and his guys in the future, and I recommend him for any project.

Jose came out right away. I had several rooms that needed painted before the movers arrived. When reviewing the rooms I needed painted, he noticed where the drywall needed to be repaired. Jose did an outstanding job on the painting but also drywall repair. There was not one area that I needed him to redo! I will most definitely hire Jose again! I can't thank him enough for the excellent job!

I am very pleased with the ceiling drywall repair done by Shaun Brown of The Handymen. Shaun took his time to do good quality work - it is obvious that he takes pride in a job well done. The texture and paint blended flawlessly with the existing ceiling. I would highly recommend Shaun for this type of work. Shaun is also punctual and his word is good.

Jose responded to my inquiry the same day and sent someone to look at the job. He followed up the next day with a personal visit and a bid for the work. Step by Step is a licensed contractor with both general liability insurance and Workman's Compensation insurance. I wanted the work started within a week, and he was able to provide a crew that started the next day and finished the job in less than a week. Adam, Cesar, and Francisco did a good job with taping and floating the drywall in two rooms and provided a clean and smooth finish. The orange peel texture was sprayed on and looks great. Windows, doors, and outlet boxes were all carefully covered and kept clean. Cesar later applied a coat of primer and a finished coat with a roller. I was very pleased with the final appearance. Everyone showed up when they said they would and cleaned up the job site before they left.

Working with Bill has been a pleasure. He has been quick to respond and professional. We are working to repair a water damaged home long distance and he has been extremely helpful and has gone out of his way to meet with our insurance adjuster. He also is more than knowledgeable enough to discuss the relevant issues such as acceptable levels of moisture in the home. He has made the process much less stressful than if we were handling things on our own. I am a real-estate investor and finding people who do what they say they are going to do has become increasingly difficult. I am grateful to have found this company and plan on using their services for future projects. Additionally, I would sincerely recommend them to family and friends in need of a contractor.

Mr. Rafael recently laid tile floor down for my foyer. He did an amazing job. All of the tiles are level and he was super fast. He is about to repair my kitchen tile that was laid down incorrectly by a different contractor. I am so excited and cannot wait to see my new kitchen floors. I will definitely hire him for additional projects. He is also very personable and explains things so that I can understand.

Stephen and Dixiana Trosclair 13964 JR Drive Walker,Louisiana 70785 I was introduced to Ed when he was with United Built Homes. My first impression of Ed was exceptional. All throughout the build of my new home Ed was in constant contact with me. Always checking on his contractors and asking if I needed anything on a daily basis. Also with Ed being a God fearing Christian, that was an absolute blessing to me and my wife. My wife and I have been in our new home for more than a year now and even though Ed no longer works for United Built Homes, He still kept in touch with us always asking about our home. When we were looking for a home to build I honestly believe God sent us to United Built because of Ed. Ed will always be in our hearts and in our prayers.

What an awesome experiance, I truly wish I had more stars to give! The whole PMC team was extreamly responsive, prompt, professional, honest, understanding, patient and helpful. From first contact to job completion I was continuously impressed and he overcame some serious obstacles in my home without ever faultering. When I found out my roof was leaking and had done so much damage I was very worried. Now that I have this team I know who I am contacting for every repair ever. They go above and beyond in so many ways. I recently seperated from the military and now live out of area, Daniel was a dream. He sent pictures and explained the process every step of the way. They were flexable and I can honestly say this is the best experiance I have had working with a contractor in my entire life. Thank you Daniel and thank you PMC. Please feel free to contact Daniel and ask for my number, I will be happy to tell anyone who is on the fence that this is your guy, hands down!!!:) So happy with the work and knowing I have someone I trust to work on my home for now on. Cant say enough about these guys, A million stars!

We had Kaz and his electrician rewire the master bedroom. The work was fast , prompt and professional. Kaz also demoed under the bathroom sink and did the mold remediation. He repaired the cabinet wall just like new. Will call back when I need a contractor.

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.).
