I don't even know where to begin. I was working out of state and I needed to sell my house Temple, TX. Clipper's basically took care of everything that pertained to getting my house ready to put on the market. Rebecca was AWESOME. I really felt like she was selling my house for me. I asked a lot of her and she came through with flying colors. I needed some cracks in the drywall fixed due to some settling, the house cleaned inside and out (power washed the outside), and some junk removed. They did it all AND some. Rebecca would recommend things be done to increase the marketability of my house. I really appreciated her attention to detail and working with me while I was out of state during this whole process. I mean....she went out of her way to order a utility room light fixture globe because she thought it would be best for me. She did the same with the toilet seat. She replaced light bulbs that were out too. As for the price, it was so reasonable that I actually could afford to ask her to do more to the house like power wash the outside. All I can say is that if I still lived in Temple, I would not think twice about hiring her again. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

I can't even express how pleased I am with Rubens work. We hired him to reface our fireplace and it looks amazing! Not only that, we had run into an issue where a huge limb on our tree had fallen in the yard. I was stressed out about now having to find a contractor for tree removal, but Ruben stepped up and let me know he could take of it for me. It was such a relief to know he could take care of everything for me!!! One stop shopping with excellent customer service!! We already have projects in place that we will be calling him back for!

He tore out my fireplace and sheet rocked and textured the new wall, he replaced my small porch poles with larger ones and found and repaired a leak on my roof. I would highly recommend Vic Searcy of Searcy Construction to anyone. His bid was very reasonable. He is a crew of 1 but works like 10 men. He does beautiful work and will come back and make it right if you are not happy. I say this because after he was done and paid out we primed the new wall and the seams seemed to pop out after we primed. This was not due to him making a mistake - it really could not be seen with the texture on the wall until the wall was primed. I texted him and told him about what happened and came out the next day to look at it and he repaired it within 2 days. This contractor does not leave you even after you have paid in full - HE WILL MAKE IT RIGHT! I understand the fear you may have about hiring a contractor but with Searcy Contruction your fears are unwarranted. I would hire again. In fact I would not seek any additional bids. He is trustworthy and will do a great job for you.

I was called promptly after posting my needs. I must say I was impressed with the professionalism of Liz Reyes. She asked specific questions about my needs to prepare a more precise bid. (or at least as precise as you can get without seeing the job). Well, I was lucky enough that they were available to start the job in two days. (whole house interior painting). The plan was to meet at the house to review what needed to be done to see if there would be any changes. Well there were no changes on their part, but once I saw the family and understood how knowledgeable they were and felt comfortable with the attention to detail that they obviously possess I decided to add a few areas to the job. I was a little concerned about the price difference from the original bid but when Mrs. Reyes gave me the new quote I was delighted that it was very fair and affordable. Now here's the kicker. Once they were done with the job, my wife went to see the house before meeting me. She praised Reyes Painting and Cleaning Services for the attention to detail and quality of the painting the walls, trim, closets and said the cleaning of the house was immaculate. You'd have to know my wife to know that I have never heard this in critiquing a contractor from her since I've known her. She is very meticulous so to hear her give such praise made me extremely happy. We will absolutely call them again when we need any paint or cleaning work done. I'd like to thank the Reyes family for taking so much pride in your work (entire family) and even more so for impressing my wife. I can't thank you enough.

Jarett has completed some work for me in the past. As a small business owner myself, I am impressed with his level of professionalism and he is a man of his word. There are too many contractors out there that over promise and under deliver and Jarett is just the opposite of that. He is a great choice for small or large jobs.

We loved working with Orlando. We had a leaky exterior door that we decided to close in. Orlando was very detailed in his communication with us before, during and after the project. He respected us by always keeping us up to date on the status on the project. He was timely and always arrived at the time that he said. He worked long and hard to get the job done, all the while with a content mindset. The final project turned out greater than we could have hoped for. His detail and precision on the project reflected how dedicated and passionate he is about his work. He crafted our project as if it was his own. We would absolutely love to work with Orlando again, and we recommend you do to. In a business where it is so easy to take advantage of people (and believe me, we have felt the yuck factor from other contractors), Orlando was completely professional, respectful and fair in the completion of our project. We are so happy with his work.

Dear Mr. Stinger with Elevation Home Designs, I want to thank you and everyone at Elevation Home Designs for the excellent work you did on my house remodel. This was my first remodel, EVER, and you totally exceeded all my expectations. From the moment I hired you, Mr. Stinger, I was at ease and appreciated your input and knowledge from a construction standpoint. This remodel required taking down interior walls, installing plumbing, remodeling bathrooms, putting in new doors, painting and texturing, new flooring and creating a nice fenced in area off my back porch. You were very quick to give me a bid that was within my budget, and more importantly the entire remodel was complete in under 3 months. Hiring you, Mr. Stinger, was absolutely the right decision. Each contractor that you selected to represent Elevation Home Designs, was professional and efficient. They were on time, completed each phase of the job in a timely manner, and more importantly cleaned up daily! I want to thank you, personally, Mr. Stringer, for your idea of creating a custom island in my kitchen. I am so grateful that you suggested taking down an interior wall between the den and kitchen to give me so much more space. I am also happy with the recessed lighting throughout the house. What a difference these lights make! In addition, I want to thank you for taking out all the old bathtubs and replacing them with custom built glass showers and a Jacuzzi tub! I get so many compliments on the tile and back splash as well as the updated vessel sinks. I have had many inquiries on my remodel and do not hesitate to recommend you in my community. You have truly increased the value of my home! Most importantly, I highly recommend you for the follow through and customer service when the job is complete. You are always readily available for any type of touch up I may have, regardless of how big or small the job may be. Sincerely, Terri Van Gorp

He has been prompt each time I have used him; returning phone calls or texts quickly. I am ofter out of the area and feel very confident he can handle any maintenance issues I have competently.

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.).
