"I am so glad that I hired A+ Remodeling. We finished our basement (2 bedrooms, a laundry room, and a bathroom, plus a couple closets). We were on a tight schedule, with around 2 months to go from a completely unfinished basement to move-in ready. I originally hired them to do the drywall, but when Hashem, the owner, told me the cost to do the rest of it too, I couldn't help but hire him to finish the project. It was definitely a good choice. His team is courteous and great at explaining things when I had questions. Hashem gave me regular updates so that I knew what was happening and what the plan was, and even went on a shopping trip with me to pick out doors, trim, and finishings. When I discovered the shower (that I had installed) was leaking, he was quick to tell me how we could fix it and what the plan was. When I say they did everything, I mean everything. They drywall, painting, flooring, trim, plumbing, electric, and they even brought in a cleaning crew at the end to make sure it was move-in ready. Hashem is meticulous when he looks over the project to make sure it's done right. The one struggle I had with the team was timing. Our project ended up going a couple weeks over the original end date. Some of it was unavoidable, like mud not drying when it was humid out. Several times the deadline moved though just because Hashem estimated it would be done faster than it actually could be. That being said, the work that his team did was excellent, and it was more important to me that things be done right than stick strictly to the schedule. I'm so glad that I hired A+ Remodeling. It saved me time, and more importantly frustration at a very reasonable cost. I look forward to hiring A+Remodeling on future projects."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.).

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?

Here are two examples of average prices for smaller drywall repair jobs that could be similar to fixing a hole in the wall:

  • 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.
