Ryan and crew were more than I could have hoped for. I provided exacting specs for the job I wanted done, and they delivered — even suggesting improvements along the way to yield an even better end result than I could have hoped for. They removed a pass-thru wall air conditioner for me, reinforced the structure once the hole was wide open, added insulation, and then covered the exterior with OSB plywood and hardie lap siding and painted, per spec. Interior, they patched with drywall, taped and floated, then painted. Great work, will use them again.

They did an outstanding job on my drywall project - which was somewhat complicated. They hung a set of heavy bifold doors - perfectly. Thanks!

Diamond in the rough as far as contractors go! If you need it done, this couple is the one to do it! They're the only company that gave me an estimate and constantly checked up with me and in the end, they stuck to the price estimated even though I asked for a few more things in addition to what was originally quoted. I know the job was more of a pain than they took into account before checking out what needed to be done but the price never changed. This is a true, genuine, honest, (pretty awesome if I must say myself) couple that work together to make their customers happy! I inquired about a few doors and ended up with 4 beautiful doors with new knobs, a hung mirror and a fixed chair and I couldn't be happier! We also found out we know some of the same people!! So glad we found them! Thanks Maury and Melissa!!

I had them fix two giant holes in my garage ceiling, which had been there for years. I never got around to fixing it because it was far too daunting to handle myself, and too expensive to have someone else do it. I had received a few bids over the years, and they were all well outside of my budget. Finally, the time had come where I couldn't put it off any longer, and I'm so glad that I chose Handyman Walls to handle the project. They were fast, they did phenomenal work, and the price was extremely reasonable. I am beyond impressed, and will think of them first the next time I have a drywall project. I highly recommend them.

Painting and staining concrete floor. Ronald was very flexible with my job (due to other contractors not finishing in time), very communicative and has a great attention to detail. He went over and above in doing extras that my previous contractors hadnt and made the place look amazing with the paint job High reccommended

Austin Home Solutions did an awesome job painting the exterior of my 1910 home. Derek provided a competitive quote and he and Tim got the job done fast even though they encountered multiple obstacles along the way. My contractor unfortunately cut a lot of corners when he put on new siding, but Derek and Tim took on the challenge to install missing trim, repair large gaps, and caulk every nook and cranny to ensure that the house would look good and be protected. Derek understands good customer service and that communication can be just as important as the quality of the work. He updated me frequently throughout the process so that I always knew what times he was coming in addition to always asking for clarification or feedback, something more professionals ought to do!

My project was installing double doors in an opening that had to be reconfigured in size and required installation of a header, drywall work, texture, painting, installation of the prehung double doors and door hardware. Sonny was responsive to messages via Thumbtack and also while doing the work, checking in with me throughout the project to make sure it was to my satisfaction at various points. His rate was reasonable and he was able to complete the work in a timely manner. He was respectful and courteous. I'm very pleased with the result and would recommend him on this type of project without reservation.

Eduardo responded immediately to our request for a quote, showed up when he said he would, and carefully reviewed our project. He gave us a bid that was very reasonable and was able to start the next day. It was a two day job. He showed up each morning on time and was very professional: from covering our floors and protecting all the surrounding areas to complete spotless cleanup. The result was flawless patches where needed, to perfect texture matching to surrounding areas. I would highly recommend him for anyone who needs drywall work of any kind.

Mike was such a find! I’ve been struggling with horrible contractors throughout this entire remodel and Mike stepped in and knocked out some work I needed done as well as helped out with another miscellaneous part of the job at no cost. I HIGHLY recommend using him for any odd jobs you might have.

I had a sudden water leakage from my bathroom faucet, which destroyed the ceiling of the unit below. Also, it turned out that there has been a gradual water leakage which significantly damaged the wooden subfloor structure. I interviewed three contractors including Ken (MD Contracting). One of them could not do it because the scale of the job was beyond his capacity and another one wanted to do a $1500-demolition just to give me a precise estimate. My neighbor found him through his employee who had a very positive experience with Ken. Ken ended up doing my bathroom and the unit below and he gave us reasonable quotes. He is professional and responded to my questions promptly (This was important because I live in NY, and he worked on my investment property in Austin, TX). I strongly recommend Ken as a general contractor, and I will contact him again if I ever need home improvement projects.

He came in for a drywall job and ended up remodeling most of my house. The drywall was done then they painted and also installed vinyl/wood type flooring through out the bedrooms. Cleanliness was what was above all. What an impressive job of keeping the job tidy and on schedule. Top notch crew

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.).
