Had a center ceiling light box installed in a first floor room. Not easy to do with an existing home because of drywall cutting. Victor made the least demolition of the ceiling and walls...very important for the repatch and paint work. Also, Victor was extremely prompt in responding to my inquiring, providing a guesstimate over email and arriving promptly for the project. The only developmental area for Victor in our project was in "cleanup". The larger drywall remnants and debris were removed from the hardwood floors, however, a broom - which was used for cleanup - did not (could not) pickup the dust and finer points of drywall cutting. A vacuum was not used during cleanup. I was left with a chalky room floor to vacuum and wipe down. I believe Victor may have simply forgotten to attend to this. Overall, though, I would recommend for hire and consider for repeat hire of electrical labor.

Ben was really flexible with scheduling and arrived right on time. He mounted my TV, added an outlet, concealed all the cables behind drywall, and helped setup my soundbar to everything. He was quick, professional and did a great job! Everything looks clean and works perfectly!

Ron and his guy installed two light fixtures and three ceiling fans for me. They did a great job! Were very responsive, on time, and the work was great. One of the ceiling fans needed further adjustment, so he came back and fixed it no problem. Our regular contractor wanted to charge four times what Ron did. I am thrilled to have such great work available at such a reasonable price. Thanks, Ron!

This was without a doubt one of the best experiences I've had with a contractor. I had work done to remove a large fallen tree branch and repair of the fence that it crashed through, as well as deck repair including replacing a rotting deck post. Jaime got back to me almost immediately after my thumbtack request, came out the next day for an estimate, and completed all the work a few days after that. He was very easy to work with and he even fixed a few other things I noticed while he was there working. I would highly recommend him for your job.

Santiago repaired drywall in my garage and painted the entire downstairs of my home. He not only was very easy to deal with but also took every aspect of the job seriously. Being in the service business I know what it means to deliver on your clients expectation and Santiago exceeded mine. He completed the project a day faster than what he estimated with a price that was very reasonable for the work performed. If you are looking for someone that has experience in all aspects of construction without the big contractor feel, this is the guy to hire.

We were beyond happy with Raul and his team. On a whim, we tried Thumbtack on a Sunday afternoon, looking for some help with drywall work, finishing and prepping for paint with the request for someone in less than a day. Raul responded immediately and was at our house the next day Monday! He was professional, focused on quality and fantastic to work with. He was so good and delivered a high quality result, we hired him to come back and paint our kitchen two days later. I now have a beautiful finished kitchen. We are considering additional work with him and will work with him again.

I hired Wayne Byrd of Byrd Home improvement to do interior painting of a large multi-room indoor space as well as minor drywall repairs. Wayne and his team were professional, efficient, took great care of my floors and furnishings and completed the job in 3 days. They did a fantastic job - it looks like a brand new house! I would absolutely hire Wayne again.

Mondale patched a ceiling for me and repaired another patch that was not professionally completed. He quickly responded to my request for a quote and was very willing to be available at my convenience. The results prove to me that Mondale has much experience with drywall repair and painting. I am extremely pleased with the turnaround time and the end result. I recommend Mondale for your drywall repair and painting needs.

Pullen Contracting was extremely professional, fair, and did outstanding work. I worked directly with Bill Pullen and couldn't have been more impressed with how easy he made everything. We had what I considered to be a few "tough" problems, but he made it seem easy and he and his team did the work quickly and for a very fair price. Drywall and painting work was seamless and blends in perfectly with each room he worked in. Mr. Pullen is friendly, offers excellent suggestions about problems that may have caused repair needs, and his work matched his estimate. I will not hesitate to go directly to Pullen Contracting for any future needs. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for drywall or other contracting work. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you to Pullen Contracting for solving a problem for us and making it painless!

I hired Dan to install a new, permitted, 550sqft freestanding deck. Dan did an excellent job and was very easy to deal with. He showed up every day at the time he communicated, which is not typical of contractors. The project turned out to be much larger than we both anticipated, but Dan stood by the initial estimate on which we shook hands.

I hired 3D to do a large drywall repair and painting job. Everything turned out well--our ceilings are flawless. The painting looks great as well. The pricing was fair and in line with our insurance estimate. Final requests were met promptly to complete the job. I would hire again for future projects.

Wow, just wow!!! Not only was Artur very responsive at the beginning of the search but every point after as well. He showed up on time and made me sweat watching him work. This guy is not just a great drywall finisher, he is a European Craftsman. Paid him more than he was asking (which was very reasonable for what I needed done) just for the joy of watching him work. Whatever he tells you he can do and will do, believe him. My advice.... hire no other! I'm not sure if he even brought sandpaper...if he did I never saw him use it. No kidding! Kelly

After my home was broken into just days before Christmas, without hesitation, Mike was on location and worked quickly to get my home secure. He was attentive, listened to and addressed my concerns and was clear on what the very reasonable costs for repair would be. Beyond that, he was very conscientious about making it right, attentive to detail ensuring the new door was properly installed and erasing any evidence that a break-in had occurred. As the original door had been installed without proper flashing by another contractor, Mike not only replaced the damaged door, but corrected the developing wood rot and emplaced the flashing as it should have been. As I was working out of town, communication was outstanding, professional. He sent frequent photos of the entire process from tear down to final touches. Attention to detail: setting the new door ensuring it was plumb, no airgaps in the weather seal, installing the new siding (to replace what was damaged by break-in), caulking, painting the sheetrock and the external siding and clean up. Break-ins are violating and unfun. Mike really took the emotional edge off of it, getting the job done and done right at a very reasonable rate. I would certainly call upon Raleigh Property Services again in a heartbeat should the need arise.

I used Ernesto to drywall a 14x18 outbuilding. He was at my house the day after we talked to give a quote. The price was fair and he started the following day. The work quality was excellent and done very quickly. I will definitely hire again and refer to friends. I will be using him to finish our 4th bedroom soon.

Calix Painting did a wonderful job on my kitchen. They removed 20-year-old wallpaper and repair the old drywall. The texture of my kitchen wall is now so smooth. Then they primed and painted the walls. The crew was quick, efficient and everything looks fantastic.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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?

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.

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.).
