Charles was great! He not only helped me out with the project I needed done, he also fixed a bunch of the other ones that I tried to do myself. And he didn't even make fun of how many holes I'd accidentally put in my drywall. Would totally hire him again.

This was my first experience using Thumbtack. Dan did a subway tile installation in our kitchen and also removed ceiling fans in 2 bedrooms and re-wired and installed chandeliers in their places. Dan was great to work with and I'll definitely contact him for other projects in the future.

Eric did a great job overall for a very reasonable price. He painted most of the interior rooms in my house, including some spackling, fixing drywall issues, doing some touch up, etc. I hope to have him back out for other work in the future.

I hired Kevin to help do some wiring, framing, and drywall so I would be able to mount a tv in a difficult location. He was very knowledgeable and was able to find some creative ways to get around a few unexpected problems he encountered once the wall was opened up. Another contractor I had come to look at the project told me it was no possible and left but now the job is done and my tv looks great with no wires showing.

I wish I could give more than five stars! We’ve had several highly-recommended and well-respected handymen and general contractors over the years and, without a doubt, Hill Home Improvement tops them all! I had an area of moisture-damaged drywall with mold that needed replacing, preferably as soon as possible because of the mold. Rob, the owner, responded to my Thumbtack inquiry in less than an hour. We spoke over the phone right away and he offered to come right over to provide an assessment and within 25 minutes of our call he was here! And it was 9:30 at night! - just goes to show Rob’s dedication and commitment to helping his clients. During his assessment, Rob was very professional, courteous, thorough, and knowledgeable of the problem at hand. What I appreciated the most was his unwavering integrity - he walked me through the plan and all costs; he wanted to complete the project properly while being very conscious of the cost for me. His prices were very very fair. He came the following day with one other worker. They were punctual, got right to work and were in and out so quickly - within an hour! The quality of work was exceptional. I couldn’t be happier! Thank you so much, Rob! Looking forward to many more projects together!

I am extremely happy that I hired ARTECH Property Restoration to install hardwood floors in my dining room! They were professional and courteous, and the work quality is excellent! Because the work was done very well, I've hired them again for another project. If you need hardwood flooring installed, I highly recommend this company!

The Szumowski team was prompt & courteous during both 3-day jobs they did in my Havertown, PA home. -- In 2013, John & his crew tore down & disposed of my living room old panel walls & old insulation & replaced with new insulation & fresh drywall. Spackled, sanded, painted, cleaned up. Ripped out old ugly fake wood flooring & put in nice carpet. Brand new crown molding against ceilings. SEE PICS I ATTACHED -- In 2014, their carpentey team removed old carpeting on the entire upper level & installed hardwood flooring & new baseboards. -- Free estimates & an old school handshake with a "It's my last name on the worktruck, this job will be done right." business approach from John make this company the contractor to go with.

So i had a total of 6 people come and quote me for this project. 4/6 were cheaper than Paul (not by much) but what made me choose Paul was his attention to detail. Most folks came over, looked at the project, left and sent me the quote later. Paul came over, took measurements, and made sure he was able to find siding that closely matches what I have BEFORE he gave me a quote. This way there were no surprises when it came time to do the project. When the siding and windows came in Paul and I believe his Father In Law came over and worked thoroughly making sure everything was done correct. When there were concerns I had (nothing major) he was quick to acknowledge and resolve them. He was very responsive the entire time and kept me in the loop with things as it were happening. I appreciate all the hard work and effort he put in removing my door and putting in the window and I look forward to working with him on further projects I have.

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.).
