Andrew did a great job removing a small wall from my house which involved cutting out a portion of drywall through a few metal studs - with some problem-solving along the way.

We hired Dominick for a drywall job. He did a great job,was reasonably priced, and nice to have around. He was very nice to my young kids. Dominick was very detail oriented and didn’t cut corners or cheap out on what was initially discussed. He actually went beyond my expectations when he re-textured a larger than necessary section of ceiling in an effort to make the repaired section melt into the exiting texture. He cleaned up after himself extremely well. We will definitely be saving his phone number for future projects.

John was extremely professional, courteous and punctual. His workmanship was excellent. This was a small job, but he didn't act like it wasn't worth his time - approached it with enthusiasm to have the opportunity to work with us. We hired John to patch/repair drywall, skim coat walls, and prime in a bathroom. VERY happy with his work, was very competitive in his rates, and WILL hire him again!

Needed a drywall replaced due to water damage. Reubert walked me through the work and gave me a very fair estimate for the work which was completed 2 days later. I have no problem recommending Reubert for drywall installation or repair.

Donald was great about the job and price, Chris did excellent work going above what I was expecting. I cannot find anything to complain about. Work was demo a 5x7 bathroom ceiling, reposition the fan, install drywall, smooth finish.

Durfee and Sons is great to work with. My wife and I had a leak in the house and couldn't figure out exactly where it was coming from so we posted on Thumbtack. Ernie from D&S responded very quickly with a fair quote and said he could get to it the next day if we wanted. He showed up on-time and ready to go. He identified the source in about 30 seconds - inside the wall, of course! - and had everything done including a nice smooth drywall patch in about 1 hour. We've continued to work with Ernie since then and he's been great each time.

I found Bryan through Thumbtack. He contacted me immediately and came to the house to see what needed to be done within a day. He was very professional, quoted me a very reasonable price, fit me right into his schedule, and did a great job. I will definitely be using him again in the future for additional drywall work I need done, and would highly recommend Bryan for anyone in need of drywall work.

He was a little late arriving from what we agreed, but he did notify me of his delay before he was actually expected. He did pretty much what I asked, and he worked steady at completing it. He was very courteous, and in the end did a good job. I was repairing a drywall and I had wanted it to be patched with just one piece of drywall to minimize the seams and sanding I am expecting to do. He used 3 pieces, but in the end it looks like it's OK. So yes, I think Good to borderline Excellent is a fair assessment.

Wow, where to start... He did an amazing job! Punctual, polite and excellent workmanship. Nothing much more you could ask for. He really knows plaster and the walls are so straight you could take a straightedge to them and have no gap. He also repaired some broken drywall for us and cleaned up the entire space including the floor paper to not dirty our carpet. We will certainly be hiring Grenal for all our future plastering/drywall work!

Jim did a great job installing our kitchen backsplash glass tile. He showed up the same day to give me a quote and was able to schedule this project within days. He was prompt, professional, and left the kitchen as he found it. Appreciated items such as putting down drop clothes, etc to protect the floors and counters. While he was at our house we had him fix a hole in the drywall which turned out very nice. Would definitely hire him again.

We highly recommend Paul and his team. These guys were easy to work with, extremely responsive to our needs, and reasonable on price. We had a family room that was covered in wood panels. Everything was taken down and replaced with drywall along with installing a picture window. They were very helpful throughout the entire process and had a great eye for detail. Paul and the guys were respectful in getting the project well-done within a quick time frame. I would hire again for future housing needs.

Our bathroom was long overdue for re-painting. As you can see in the "before" picture, we had a lot of peeling paint that needed to be removed before we got to anything else. Erik was able to complete the job in two days, and our bathroom looks phenomenal! The first day, he scraped the loose paint from the ceiling and walls, primed and sealed everything, and then applied 3 coats of plaster to bring it back to a smooth surface. The next day he primed and painted the ceiling, walls, and door, and cleaned up any plaster residue. I'd highly recommend him for any painting!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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?

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.
