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.

Dominick was great. My schedule changed a couple times and he had no problem with changing to accommodate my wife and I. He did a fantastic job blending a new ceiling in with the ecisting ceiling. He even went above and beyond by doing most of one kitchen wall saving me hours of mudding and sanding. I will be recommending Dominick to others.

Minor drywall repair in the bathroom with repainting. Also repainted all our radiator covers. Came out the following day and gave us an estimate and worked on a Saturday! Completed the job the following Monday and it looks amazing. He was very professional and worked around our 2 toddlers and was reasonably priced.

Reubert and his crew at Color Precise Painting did an amazing job painting our condo at a very reasonable price. In addition to expertly painting ceilings, walls, and woodwork, they took the effort to made some very dingy and rough surfaces smooth - filling cracks in plaster, scraping and sanding down old painted woodwork, etc. where necessary. Also, Reubert was extremely nice, clear, reliable, and fast (but not too fast!). I would definitely hire them again and recommend that you do too!

Don and his team were great! They did everything possible to address all of our needs, were fast and thorough in the drywall and plastering process. A bit more time needed to be spent in preparing the areas of the house to be worked on, but all in all we are very satisfied with the quality of the end product. Thank you!

(Note that this review is being written by Jerry Booth, the person who actually did the hiring on this job): I cannot say enough good things about Bryan Arthur, who owns and operates B.A.'s Drywall Service and Repair. From the outset he was approachable to traveling to see the small project -- and was very straightforward about discussing options that could be considered to handle the repair. It quickly became apparent to me that this was a man who cared greatly about doing the not only best job he possibly could, but also the RIGHT job, even when it meant traveling a couple of towns over to purchase additional material needed to complete the work. While this wasn't what would be described as a "big project", it carried challenges because it required correcting an earlier, very amateurish, repair attempt performed by someone not qualified. One of the best parts of the experience was Bryan's refusal to stay anything other than upbeat throughout the task. His sense of humor and genuine good nature is a part of who he is and he brings it with him on the job. He is also beyond polite and respectful, which made me feel comfortable from the start. I would hire Bryan again in a heartbeat and, in fact, we have already had informal conversations about a future job. Thanks again Bryan. You made a difference.

Mr. DeOliveira was very professional. He gave me a quote and stuck to it. He showed up on time and did a great job installing s cement pad in the front of my house. He came back the next day and finished the work. Finally he had to come back a week later and repair the job after a truck backed into the house and damaged the concrete. Mr. DeOliveira came right out promptly and fixed the damaged pad at no charge. I would highly recommend DeOliveira Construction. Tom Steeves, Bellingham, MA

My initial contact with Northeast Construction was great, they sent a very professional response and sent out some one (Ian?) the next day to make the repairs to walls and touch it up. Brandon also came out to check on the job and also provided a estimate on some bathroom work we would like to do. After speaking with him we could tell he has extensive experience and knows what he is talking about. We had no idea we couldn't install Sheetrock of any type in a shower behind tile, we had numerous contractors say that was perfectly fine and the norm, after researching its is not the norm. We look forward to working with them on our bathroom job and future projects.

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.

Erik replainted my 600 sq ft apartment that had about 3 decades of paint coats underneath that caused all sorts of cracking. He scraped all loose paint and plaster and the dug out cracks in the plaster to insure that they don't come back. Then he skim coated, primed and painted the walls. He was courteous, professional, fair, and detail oriented. He even caught a building leak that would've caused expensive damage to my apartment and the one above it. He was very self-sufficient and friendly to building staff and neighbors when I wasn't around. He also communicated the perfect amount so I knew what was going on, what the time table would be, and understood all the costs. Highly recommended.

They gave me a great quote, good photos of the work, they showed up on time, they did exactly what they said they do, when I needed them to do extra work they were very reasonable with the price. I had them do extra work at my office, and they just did a fantastic job. I would recommend these people to anybody that wanted a great job done with their sheet rock/drywall!

We are glad we picked Sprucecon to come and drywall our basement. John was very conscientious about communicating his schedule and showing up when he said he would. He and his team worked as hard for us on our small home improvement project as they would for a big--time client. They used quality materials and worked to get even the tricky corners just right. We are planning on hiring Sprucecon again for our next drywall project.

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.).
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
