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.

I run a home automation installation company, and we hired Darcio to patch multiple holes we had to make in a client's drywall. He patched all the holes beautifully, and repainted the areas so seamlessly that, once the paint dried, we couldn't even tell where the holes had been. It turned out we had more holes than originally expected, but Darcio was extremely understanding and didn't even charge us extra to patch the additional holes. He was also very flexible when we needed him to come back two more times to do additional work on short notice. Bottom line - he arrived right when he said he would, worked till the job was complete, and achieved amazing results that we never could have expected for twice the price. If you need drywall patched or walls painted, call Darcio now! You won't regret it!

We had a skylight removed previously by our roofer and the roof was repaired. But of course the ceiling needed repair/filling as well. Mike Levy gave us a fair and timely estimated, explained the job thoroughly. Over the course of two days for dry time, he placed insulation, drywall boards, mud, primer, and ceiling paint to close up the gaping hole. I was most impressed with how careful he was to protect the rest of the room not involved in the project, and how well he cleaned up each day. He is friendly and courteous and I would recommend his work to anyone.

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!

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.

Recently I took on a project that i thought I could handle myself. Got in overhead my head and needed someone to help me out fast. I called Jospeh Drywall and was pleasantly surprised at the prompt response and great service. The guys came out and put the drywall up in my basement faster than expected. They are hardworking,friendly, and honest. I would highly recomend them to anyone. As well as use them for my future projects. Couldnt have done it without these guys. Now my family enjoys those beautiful finished basement. Also very reasonably priced.

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!

Go Green completed our home project on time and within our budget. We had a slider door and window replaced that required some reframing, removing and reinstalling siding, weather barrier and insulation. Frank and Ivan were true and experienced professionals- they arrived on time, were very polite, worked diligently, had a keen eye for detail and were very thorough. As with any project some unforeseen problems came up that could not have been anticipated. Julio worked with us to adjust the project’s hours; and Frank and Ivan offered a creative and aesthetically pleasing solution to a problem that would have sky-rocketed the overall cost. They wiped down everything before they left and completely cleaned up all debris. Finding a great contractor is always challenging for a homeowner. There are so many to choose from and most make claims that ultimately fall short or run well over-budget. Go Green was the most affordable and competitively priced company we consulted for our project; they exceeded ALL expectations and did a fantastic job! They will be getting repeat business from us.

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.

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.).
