Jason was wonderful, he responded to my request quickly and was able to repair my faucet the same day. He arrived on time and even cleaned up afterwards. All professional handymen should be like him, a real gem.

"Mr Kurt Anthony" did wallpaper removal, wallpaper installation, wall repair and paint for me. He did a remarkable job across the board. He came on time with all supplies and a pleasant attitude. He was patient and never rushed, and actually quite a perfectionist which was a pleasant surprise. We worked out a fair price and the work was excellent. Thank you and praises to "Mr Kurt Anthony!"

I highly recommend Paul for any and all repair work. He was professional and highly skilled. I appreciated his patience and cleanliness. He completed all the repair items in a relatively short time period. His rate is very reasonable. I will definitely call him again.

We needed a plumbing repair late Sunday afternoon at my parents home (60 year old house with original copper plumbing). They had found water on the floor of their finished basement. It was not gushing, but a steady drip. We shut off the water to the house. Matt responded quickly through Thumbtack, and was at the house within a couple hours. It was a cracked fitting, which he repaired. Price was reasonable, he was professional and we will use him again. He also called the next day for follow-up.

A pleasure to deal with, he was professional enough to discourage the repair of an old air conditioner, even though he would have made more money had he done it. We would surely hire him again for other jobs.

I'm extremely pleased by Green Painting and their overall quality of service. Marcelo reached out to me promptly and worked with the tight timeframe that I had. He provided with a reasonable quote and completed the drywall repairs to my kitchen ceiling including painting, very quickly. The ceiling looks brand new. Thanks Marcelo!

Konstantinos went above and beyond. I needed to repair damage to my living room walls and paint over a dark accent wall to match the existing paint in the unit. I was not able to find the same paint but Konstantinos did a beautiful job blending and completely covered up the areas where plaster had been ripped off from removing a pressurized wall. Not only did he do a great job on my painting / repair but he also helped me patch up some damage to my floors as a courtesy and all at a very reasonable price (and really the best price I could find after searching Thumbtack and Yelp). Would definitely hire him for future jobs.

Marcelo came right away for a quote and had estimate ready next day with details of job and cost. Started work days later. He and his associate were punctual and came ready to work. They did patch repair work on living room, dining room and upstairs hallway ceilings after recessed lighting was installed. They patched with plaster and spackle and had to sand and smooth the ceiling. Afterwords, they painted and also painted the hallway walls. They covered the floors and all furniture and cleaned up after themselves. They worked all day and completed the job in 4 days. Marcelo even came back to retouch some paint in the hallway that was not even. (it was a dark hallway and hard to see). The cost was far for the amount of work that was involved. They are very nice, honest and professional people. We would recommend 100% for any job.

We initially hired Douglas for landscaping services, installation of top soil and sod. We subsequently hire him to replace fencing in need of repair. The services were done professionally, timely and correctly the first time. All work promised was completed and on time. I would not hesitate to hire Douglas again in the future.

I wanted my new home painted and some plaster repair done, and am so grateful I found Omar Graham on Thumbtack. Omar and his crew exceeded our expectations in every aspect of the job. Right from moving furniture to Painting, finishing. They completed the job on time including immaculate clean up. Omar has an eye for detail and perfection. He is also incredibly patient as we painted 2 colors in each room and it didnt seem to phase him. He was very professional and had a sense of humor which helped. Needless to say, we can't wait for him to be back for our next project. It was a great experience overall and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a stress free paint and plaster job.

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.).
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
