A few years back, the New York Times ran a Modern Love column in which the writer compared relationships to contractors to relationships with boyfriends. In the beginning, he meets a girl's high hopes: he calls the next day and shows up on time, enthusiastic to be with you and full of promises. And then….well, the calls are less frequent, he's hard to reach, and now he's late, a bit distracted, and, worse, he's seeing someone else! No disrespect to men: my late husband was wonderful, smart, a talented musician who knew how to use a tape-measure, a drill, a paintbrush. Alas, I speak from experience: Some contractors are like some musicians: trying to make it, running from gig to gig, and sometimes, well, they are just gigging. Over the years, I've had so much done in our co-op, walls knocked down, baseboards removed, cabinets built, walls replastered, etc. I've made mistakes in judgement, I have had to learn to say what I've wanted, and I've wasted money. I wish I had read reviews, and I hope you read mine: Carlos Vasconcelos is the real deal. I engaged him to replaster my ugly ceiling and walls in a small lower east side room (300 square feet, approx). It was uneven, wavy, full of bumps---all the result of faulty reconstruction, Con Ed soot, and years of building shifting. Carlos corrected everything, patiently explaining his process and reasons. His professional knowledge is sound, his preparation and execution were meticulous: the ceiling is flat, practically rebuilt and the walls are straight. And because I had fractured my knee, I had to ask him to paint the walls, too. Of course, I was looking for the perfect color, couldn't find it, ended up mixing it myself---and he never hurried me. Thank you for that, Carlos. I love the room; it's just what I'd hoped for. And something else: his disposition is as smooth as my walls. He's polite, kind, patient, reliable, always texts or calls, stays late, shows up early. I hope he'll come back next fall. He's an excellent contractor, and one day he'll make an fine husband.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is the best way to remove wallpaper?

There are several proven methods for wallpaper removal; each has its pros and cons, but some are definitely easier. Peeling is usually the least painful, followed by soaking and stripping. Dry-stripping is the next most time-consuming, and steaming the most work. The average wallpaper removal job costs between $360 and $560. The method of removal can affect the cost, as steaming takes longer than peeling and will therefore typically cost more. Peeling wallpaper off is usually the quickest method. To see if your wallpaper can be peeled off, try gently edging up a corner and carefully peeling the paper off the wall in strips. If you can’t peel, then you’ll have to score and strip it, either by dry-stripping or by soaking and then stripping. Plaster walls can withstand moisture and can stand up to soaking and stripping, but drywall should not be soaked. For very stubborn wallpaper, steaming may be necessary, which is time-consuming but effective. If you prefer not to attempt these methods yourself, wallpaper removal pros have the proper tools and experience to quickly take down wallpaper and also repair any damage to your walls.

How much does it cost to remove wallpaper in a room?

The national wallpaper removal cost averages $360-$560, which will typically include multiple rooms. Pros often charge by the square foot to remove egregious wallpaper that is long past its prime. Wallpaper removal cost may range anywhere from 60 cents to $1.50 or more per square foot. A pro may estimate removal costs ranging between $160 and $300 for a medium-sized room. Costs can vary due to ceiling height, and some pros add a skim coat to make repainting or re-papering smoother. Here are some examples of average costs to remove wallpaper:

  • Foyer: 36-120 square feet, $21.60-$180.
  • Powder room: 16-36 square feet, $9.60-$54.
  • Living or dining room: 120-252 square feet, $72-$378.
  • Family room: 192-384 square feet, $115.20-$576.
  • Bedroom: 100-224 square feet, $60-$336.
  • Guest bath: 45-84 square feet, $27-$126.
  • Master bedroom: 168-384 square feet, $100.80-$576.
  • Master bath: 54-160 square feet, $32.40-$240.

Once the old wallpaper is gone, the average cost to install new wallpaper is $240-$350.
