I recently contracted with J.V. Handyman/Painter to remove wallpaper in a master bedroom and then Paint the entire room including the trim, window woodwork and ceilings. I could not have been happier with the finished job. Not only were Jorge and his brother quick, when done the room was spotless and looked absolutely wonderful – it was better than I had even imagined it being done. Needless to say I would not hesitate to have them come to my home and perform more work and would also not hesitate to recommend them which I actually am doing with friends and relatives. A big THANKS to Jorge, Myra and Jorge’s brother (so sorry I can’t remember his name at this moment). Cindy G.

Sal is very professional and reliable. He fixed a water stain I had on my ceiling and painted the bedroom and bathroom ceilings. He was also responsive to fixing a crack and repainting the area on my wall. There was evidence of the crack. He did a fantastic job and I would recommend him to anyone looking to paint or wallpaper their home.

Steve helped me get my son moved into off campus housing by assembling our Ikea furniture, (an entertainment center, coffee table, nightstand, and desk). Additionally, he helped us out with a multitude of small repairs that were needed including replacing a toilet seat, changing front door locks, and replacing a light socket. He was punctual, professional and took pride in his work. Everything was completed with care and to perfection! He knows so much about so many things, that we only needed to have the 1 handyman help us with our projects. I highly recommend Steve for your projects. We will definitely be using him again in the future.

Elvin was great! He painted all of the ceilings on the first floor of my house. He came out to look at my job the day I made the request, scheduled the work for 3 days later, finished in a day and my ceilings look fantastic! I couldn't be happier and decided to have him do more of the paint work that needs to be done in my new house as a result.

Clifford was very responsive to our project and professional throughout the job. He brought his knowledge and expertise to re-do/expand our deck. The old deck had to be removed and new footings had to be poured for the added deck. The work site was always left neat and the job was completed in a timely manner. As always when you tear off an old deck, we discovered rot which Clifford addressed. From the time Clifford filed the permit to the time the job was done, Clifford treated our project as though he was the homeowner. We will certainly re-read Clifford for future projects.

I moved from CT to GA and was looking to get my wallpaper removed and painted in order to get my home ready for sale. I liked what I saw with All Pro Paining so I decided to give them a call. I spoke with Kyle and was very impressed from start to finish. Kyle was very responsive and showed up on time. Due to my schedule, I also needed someone who was willing to be flexible and he was. The overall finished product was great! I was so happy with the job he did and even referred him to some of my friends staying in CT. I might have to fly him down to Georgia next time I need something done,

Paul did a wonderful job hanging wallpaper in four rooms of our home. Two of the rooms were tricky as was the repeat in the paper. He handled it with ease.

Newton was great! He was very knowledgeable and professional. We are already talking about other jobs we would like Newton National to do for us. This time, we had wallpaper removed and the walls prepped for paint. Newton was able to come by after work for an estimate and get started a few days later. He did a great job. I'd hire him again in an instant.

Norm has done a phenomenal job with painting our walls. So much so that we have hired him back for additional jobs and will continue to do so! He worked tirelessly and efficiently to get the jobs done. We are finding out Norm can do much more than just paint walls and I would highly recommend him for all of your handyman needs!

Tim and crew were hired to convert a breezeway space into a four season room. This involved demolishing and rebuilding two outside walls, removing shingle from the other two walls, and finishing the interior to the point of being ready for painting. He installed a slider, exterior doors, and windows. From the estimate phase through completion, Tim was upfront and professional. He and his crew did quality work, from excellent finish carpentry to making sure the site was cleaned up after each day's work. If problems were found along the way, Tim brought them to my attention promptly and worked collaboratively to find solutions. The only downside of this experience was having the start date of the job delayed. Despite that, however, Tim completed the job within my required timeline. I think all builders have challenges with time/job management, so that said, Tim performed relatively well. I would hire him again, and give high recommendations. Thanks, guys, for your awesome work!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is the best way to remove wallpaper?

There are several proven methods for wallpaper removal; each has its pros and cons, but some are definitely easier. Peeling is usually the least painful, followed by soaking and stripping. Dry-stripping is the next most time-consuming, and steaming the most work. The average wallpaper removal job costs between $360 and $560. The method of removal can affect the cost, as steaming takes longer than peeling and will therefore typically cost more. Peeling wallpaper off is usually the quickest method. To see if your wallpaper can be peeled off, try gently edging up a corner and carefully peeling the paper off the wall in strips. If you can’t peel, then you’ll have to score and strip it, either by dry-stripping or by soaking and then stripping. Plaster walls can withstand moisture and can stand up to soaking and stripping, but drywall should not be soaked. For very stubborn wallpaper, steaming may be necessary, which is time-consuming but effective. If you prefer not to attempt these methods yourself, wallpaper removal pros have the proper tools and experience to quickly take down wallpaper and also repair any damage to your walls.

How much does it cost to remove wallpaper in a room?

The national wallpaper removal cost averages $360-$560, which will typically include multiple rooms. Pros often charge by the square foot to remove egregious wallpaper that is long past its prime. Wallpaper removal cost may range anywhere from 60 cents to $1.50 or more per square foot. A pro may estimate removal costs ranging between $160 and $300 for a medium-sized room. Costs can vary due to ceiling height, and some pros add a skim coat to make repainting or re-papering smoother. Here are some examples of average costs to remove wallpaper:

  • Foyer: 36-120 square feet, $21.60-$180.
  • Powder room: 16-36 square feet, $9.60-$54.
  • Living or dining room: 120-252 square feet, $72-$378.
  • Family room: 192-384 square feet, $115.20-$576.
  • Bedroom: 100-224 square feet, $60-$336.
  • Guest bath: 45-84 square feet, $27-$126.
  • Master bedroom: 168-384 square feet, $100.80-$576.
  • Master bath: 54-160 square feet, $32.40-$240.

Once the old wallpaper is gone, the average cost to install new wallpaper is $240-$350.
