Shujaur Rehman arrived exactly on time and he was supremely efficient and affable. I hired him to do some furniture assembly and to move some things that were too heavy for me. In the future, I will absolutely hire him to do other jobs around my apartment -- various repairs, painting of some walls, and hanging of artwork. I recommend him highly and enthusiastically. I am so glad to know that I can call on him in the future!

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!

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.

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.

Had a great experience working with Felipe and FW Home Improvement! They performed a wide variety of work ranging from painting, sliding door/cabinet repairs, light carpentry (trim repair and replace rotted woodwork at doorway), gutter cleaning and a few other items as well. Price was competitive and the work was done professionally and with attention to detail. Couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Would definitely call again for future handyman work! Thanks FW!

Zion completed the painting of both the exterior of our home as well as the internal ground floor. During the project some minor repairs were also made to exterior woodwork. The work was completed to a very high standard, and the team showed great care to ensure that the finish was to our satisfaction, during each step of the project. I plan to use them again when we complete future projects.

Mark Dubois's Custom Carpentry did an amazing job finishing our basement. Our new space includes a 3/4 bathroom, game room and workout area. Mark even designed and built custom built-ins, making the final product exceed our expectations. Mark was in constant communication, prompt, neat (always cleaned up before leaving) and did high quality work within our budget. We also hired Mark to replace two exterior doors and repair some cracked floor tiles. Highly recommend.

We have now used Troy for several projects which include restoration, tiling of floors, painting inside walls, and painting exterior of house. In each case we were well pleased with his work and impressed both with his handling of the projects and their end results. For the first project (painting the interior walls), Troy took the extra effort to prep the walls by removing excess wall paper and backing, patched and skim coated. After painting the walls they looked beautiful - smooth, clean lines, damage spots no longer visible. The exterior paint job was also done well. Again, Troy took the time to prepare the surfaces - scraping shingles and trim work, fixing / repairing shingles, finding the right primer (due to the poor condition of the shingles and old peeling paint). And again, with a coat of paint and clean lines around the trim the house looks vibrant - the neighbors loved it and commented on the good job he did. Troy also tiled the bathroom and kitchen floors which look great. The projects were performed in a timely manner, the areas kept clean as Troy didn't just do a job but took ownership and managed the projects. Once Troy took the project I could relax knowing that any issues that arose would be handled, I would be kept informed with updates and timeframes, and in the end impressed.

I hired HD construction to repair my deck and install trim and lattice around the perimeter. Heraldo was extremely responsive and was able to schedule me in shortly after he reviewed and quoted the job. The overall result was great and I was very happy with the work. I would definitely recommend HD construction and would hire again for future projects.

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.

We needed some trim/siding repair work done so I reached out to Construction Tech. Despite having a fully booked schedule, they were able to fit us in and get the job done quickly. We are very happy with the finished product and will definitely choose to work with them on future projects.

Adonias was very easy to work with. He is friendly, creative, and flexible. He has a very busy company, so sometimes my projects took longer than expected, but he is good about communicating. Eagle7 remodeled two bathrooms for me (I will upload pictures after I finish cleaning and organizing them). They took out two fiberglass shower/tub units, built a new tub with tile surround and a tiled walk-in shower with glass door. They replaced sinks and countertops, replaced flooring (tile in one, vinyl plank in the other), repaired some plumbing, replaced fan/light combos, and built out walls where needed. In addition, Adonias and his crew helped with a few extra requests as they came up, without complaint. We were updating most of our house this month, so there were many contractors in and out, a dog, kids, and general chaos. The crew took it all in stride, they were patient and worked around our schedule. Prices were very reasonable, and they worked with me to think through what could be salvaged/reused to minimize costs. Adonias also sourced materials as needed, not overbuying or upcharging. Highly recommend Eagle7.

I was lucky to find Jim Earley, the jefe of Webster Building. He is a diligent and enthusiastic worker, and very knowledgeable on home repair. His efforts have been pivotal to the successful renovation of my 1790 farm house. I would highly recommend him.

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.).
