I didn't have an opportunity to use Jason's services, as the situation was resolved. However, we communicated on several occasions. He was attentive, responsive and more than fair with his pricing. I have included him in my arsenal of contractors and whenever the need arises, I plan to call Berry's Home Improvement.

Ackthba did a great job replacing our toilet seat, which we thought was a very simple task but 2 contractors prior to Ackthba were not able to handle the task. Ackthba is very resourceful and professional and I will definitely call on him in the future.

Responsive Communication: Kurt was quick to respond to my project and sent me several photos of his past work. On the day of the job, he texted me to let me know his ETA and timing which I really appreciated. Great Pricing: Kurt's pricing was competitive and priced lower than several of the other contractors. Quality, Professional Work: Our wallpaper has a complex pattern and Kurt did a great job lining everything up. The wall looks fabulous! I really appreciated that Kurt put everything back the way it was before the job started. He cleaned up as he worked and took out all the scraps in trash bag on his way out. Bottom Line: I would definitely recommend Kurt to my neighbors and friends and anyone looking for someone to install their wallpaper!

Greivin is a very reliable, honest and responsive contractor who did a great job at repainting our house. I offered him the job after he submitted the best bid among 4 contractors to paint my 1340 sq feet house in Hoboken. My walls were painted in dark colors with different rooms having different colors and we were shifting to all white - he did a great job that needed four coats and also agreed to repair our wooden floor in a small corner for no extra cost. He has done a great and timely job - in a condo building, he did the job with no disturbance to neighbors. Highly recommended.

Matt was great! I have been waiting on the contractor to repair my roof. Meanwhile needed to tarp it (since hiring the contractor tiles were stripped of the roof -while waiting for them to come) Matt came and tarped the roof even in the pouring rain (I felt terrible) . He even advised me of the roofs condition saying it was it good condition dispite the missing tiles and to let the contractors know I knew the there would be no Plywood repairs needed(they [contractors] were already trying to sell me plywood!). I can sleep tonight knowing no rain will come in while waiting on the contractor (I wish they were as communicative and fast as Matt was.)

PROJECT: Remove and install an exterior door. Darin came to my home a few months ago to evaluate a project I listed on Thumbtack. He provided a quote in writing within hours of meeting us. He was one of a few contractors that presented a written contract that detailed the work he proposed. He arrived at each of our three meetings on time. He completed the job tasked efficiently and left the work space clean and clear. His work was excellent!!! My husband and I would hire HBR again...in a heartbeat!

Nick did an excellent job repairing a largish hole in a ceiling caused by a burst pipe. The work involved fitting a replacement piece of sheetrock, plastering and painting which he was able to do in one day and the result looks really good. He was friendly to deal with and I would definitely hire again for other jobs.

I hired Gama for a few small projects in my house. He really can do it all. From painting to flooring, and everything in between. He is always very responsive when I call and reasonably priced as well. I would definitely recommend him as a General Contractor for any home improvements.

We hired James and Global Housing Contractors to remodel a bathroom. The process for us to select the right contractor took months, and during this process James was by far the most responsive, visiting us multiple times, submitting proposals, 3D models, reviewing and accommodating our ever changing circumstances and needs. Our project scope has actually increased quite significantly (for example, we added a second bathroom to fix, lots of additional small items that we didn't consider at first) and James and his team was flexible and professional all along the way. James personally supervised the work multiple times a week and we couldn't be happier with the end results. During the whole process James was responsible and we could work out every single detail (e.g. tiles, paint colors, solve some unforeseen problems, etc.) together. We will definitely work with Global Housing Contractors in the future.

Nertil and his team were amazing. My husband and I hired him to add a patio to our backyard where the platform of an old garage stood. Nertil was the only contractor who assured me that he would start and complete the job right away (out of 5!) Our backyard surpassed my expectations, I was meant to put a shed on the patio but cannot bring myself to cover Nertil's beautiful work. He added a small wall toward the back and even straightened the stairs for no additional fee, all the while I was on vacation! I cannot recommend Nertil enough, my neighbors and family members have already come running for his number, he is a true professional I would recommend him to everyone.

The job could not have gone more perfect. My contractor cancelled last minute for a job that needed to be done before Christmas as it was a gift. I hired Al over the phone as I was desperate and he came over right away. I was extremely nervous and worried he may try and over charge due to the circumstances and my need for immediate assistance. He had no reviews for me to read and I have had a few bad experiences with contractors in the past. Al was polite, clean, neat and treated my home as if it was his own sweeping and vacuuming as he went along. I was only planning on having him do the hard labor and I was going to finish the rest on my own. Al was a very pleasant find and I will be referring him to anyone I know who needs a contractor. He did not over charge and went above and beyond to help finish the entire job for me.

It's been a pleasure to work with Home Geeks. Our renovation hasn't been finished (will update when the job is done) but so far, Vincent and Richard have been professional, responsive and patient. As an architect, I have worked with a lot of contractors, and so far they have been great. They have the experience and knowledge to give us good recommendations and they care about the client saving money by reducing the scope of unnecessary work. Their fee is reasonable also. Thank you, guys!

I wanted to recreate the feeling of relaxation, calmness and fun that I get when I visit the rivers and beaches of my home country of Trinidad. Don and his team masterfully recreated that feeling with executing the design of my two bathrooms! It is very difficult to find contractors that are not only excellent at what they do but also trust worthy and respect your home. I was able to give them keys to my home, and go to work feeling confident that my home was in safe hands. Thank you to Don and his team for giving me my own little river and beach mini getaways right here in hectic NYC!

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.
