Reviews of Oakland Drywall Companies

Project: Install Drywall
Piedmont, CA

He set a firm time to do the work, showed up on time, did the work quickly. He's friendly and courteous, and I'd hire him again.

Project: Install Drywall
San Leandro, CA

My project was somewhat unique or difficult than most since Ron had to drywall over some large holes of lath and plaster and build out a small section of wall. Ron was professional, reasonably priced, showed up on time and completed the job. I was surprised, that he even showed up on a Sunday to finish my job.

Project: Install Drywall

Ron was professional. Very courteous, kept in communication as needed, prompt. Good quality of work with a couple minor drops of drywall mud in the bathroom, but they came off easily with a damp sponge.

Ideas & Inspiration from Oakland Drywall & Plaster Contractors

Oakland Drywall Installation

Known as sheet rock, gypsum board, and of course, drywall, this material has become the standard when it comes to creating interior walls. No matter what the remodel, there's a good chance that it will involve drywall installation. Oakland houses of all types and sizes are home to this material, and its versatility makes it an excellent choice in living rooms, kitchens, and even basements and garages. For many do-it-yourselfers in Oakland, drywall installation is a job that will be tempting to tackle. However, though this material is far easier to put up than the plaster it was designed to compete with, there are a few reasons why hiring a professional for some to all of this job is a good idea.

Basic Installation
The first and easiest step of installing drywall is known as hanging. Most homeowners will already have the tools necessary to complete this step, and as long as you are careful it is a fairly straightforward process. Measuring and cutting the drywall to fit side-by-side and cover the wall you're working on might be tricky for first timers, but an experienced DIY can probably handle this no problem. Once the boards are cut to size, they are anchored in the wall studs with drywall screws.

The next step uses drywall tape and joint compound (known as mud) to fill in the gaps between the boards and create a smooth surface suitable for painting. Though this might sound simple enough (and you'll no doubt be able to find many resources that make it look simple) this part of the job is much more difficult to do well than many people initially imagine.

Professional Installation
The materials needed to install drywall are not all that expensive, and much of the cost of professional drywall installation in Oakland goes directly to labor. While this might seem like the perfect opportunity to save a little cash (and in a place as expensive as the Bay Area, who wouldn't be tempted by savings), that labor often means the difference between a beautiful installation that is done quickly and efficiently and results that look slightly less than professional. Additionally, many DIY drywall jobs end up taking far longer than expected and creating quite a mess, to boot!

Drywall Finishing
If you want to save some money and get professional looking results, too, doing the easy steps yourself and hiring a pro for the harder ones is a great compromise. For less experienced homeowners in Oakland, drywall finishing is often too tricky a task to perform quickly or effectively; but by hanging the drywall yourself and hiring a pro for the finishing, you can essentially get the best of both worlds and be left with an installation that looks great at a better price.

Nationally, the average cost of drywall installation is somewhere in the neighborhood of $2,000 to $2,500. Though there are certainly Bay Area jobs that fall at or below this range, there are certainly others that surpass it significantly. If you need a large or very involved drywall installation, Oakland prices might creep up into the $4,000 or $5,000 range.
