Jerome put up an Ikea Lack shelf for me. He was reasonably priced, prompt, brought his own tools & was prepared to put it up on drywall or plaster. I would definitely work with Jerome again.

Marty came to fix a sizeable hole in our drywall and rehang a tv on the wall. He did a great job, was very friendly but quick and to the point. He did a fast but thorough job and the tv is now back up on the wall ( hung correctly in the stud ) and is working great!

Wow. Mike is really an amazing handyman. I initially hired him to do some drywall work and patching in some areas. After we met him and realized how much he can do, we hired him to do: kitchen backsplash, retiling both bathrooms, changing multiple electrical outlets to decora, refinishing stair railing, changing door knobs throughout the house and crown moulding. He is in the middle of retiling and we are extremely happy with the detail and care he takes in him work. He's a very friendly guy with a great personality on top of his excellent work ethic. He cleans up after himself everyday and is very punctual. I highly recommend him.

Sonny came in and went over everything in detail. He suggested things that I never thought of! Jonathan painted my living room, dinning room, kitchen, bedroom, doors, trimming and hallways in record time! The price was even better! I can't believe how a fresh new coat of paint can change my entire house. To say that I'm impressed with their work is an understatement! I'd definitely recommend them. I interviewed 6 other painting companies and I'm so happy I chose them!

This is really more of a 4.5-star review :) We're first-time homeowners and hired Tom for a kitchen renovation and a few other small projects. We are really pleased with the results! Tom worked as quickly as possible and communicated well with us throughout the process over text and phone. In moments of frustration and delay (to be expected when coordinating with the town on permits and with subcontractors), Tom was even-keeled and worked with us to find fair solutions. His workmanship was good and he was quick to fix any/all small issues that we asked about. Tom was a reliable, personable, and his price was fair. We wouldn't hesitate to hire him again for another project.

We recently purchased our first home and immediately started a kitchen remodel (including tearing down a wall and framing new ones). We had existing plaster walls, and I was originally looking at drywalling for all the repairs and new walls. Jon recommended putting plaster back into place, and we are very satisfied with the results after hiring him to do the work. Yes, the work was very well done and our home was left as clean as you could reasonably expect it to be after the work, but I think what most impressed me about working with Jon was his communication. He was always easy to get a hold of when needed and constantly provided me with progress updates for the project. Any questions I (a confessed drywall/plaster dummy) had, were answered in a way that I could understand. We would likely hire Jon again if we need wall work done once we recover from this renovation and start our next!

Marcelo and his team were amazing. He came quickly after I inquired about a quote for the paint work at our new house. He took care of fixing and patching the wall areas that needed work and did an amazing job . He is fast and reliable, always on time and everything was done digitally so we had our estimate and invoices documented. He also pointed out some areas of concern on our exterior shingle siding which was painted with a latex paint without primer so the shingles are peeling. He explained what he would do to ready it for the winter to avoid the wood from continuing to hold moisture and rot which was very helpful. He was very knowledgable, professional and provided advice on other projects we will begin at our new home. As he has experience doing other types of construction as well. Our house has a new facelift and is ready for furniture! I highly recommend Max Painting Reliable, if I could hire them to do other other renovation projects I would in a heartbeat. We will definitely hire them again in the fall to do the exterior painting and detailing of the house.

Melvin and his team did an excellent work in repairing the drywall cracks and reinstalling the baseboard. The baseboard I had was not long enough to cover, so his team member actually went to Home Depot to pick one for me, which really helped my time. Melvin is a very detail-oriented person. I expected he would do some touch-ups on the affected area only, but he actually painted the whole wall because he wanted it to be perfect. Also, the price he quoted was very reasonable. I would definitely work with him again and highly recommend to others.

We had our entry way and dining room painted by Marcos about 2 weeks ago. First off, Marcos is a fantastic value and his quality is impeccable. For the same price as other painters, he was able to use top quality paint (others were mid-grade) and patched the walls to make them look like brand new drywall. In addition, the dining room had to have wallpaper removed and even though the work took longer than expected, Marcos was patient and didn't raise the price on us. He is a truly honorable professional and I can't wait to have him paint daughters room and living room in about a month. Thanks Marcos!

As a general contractor on Thumbtack, Tomeck Construction I hired Luxury Painting to install drywall on 900sq foot basement ceiling. Amato and his team accomplished the job on time, with superior results. Amato communicated well so I could keep my customers updated on the progress. I will definitely hire Luxury Painting again.

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.).
