Project: Install Drywall
Alexandria, VA

We were very pleased with the work Gemini's new drywall team did in our dining room. They took the time to really assess the job during our onsite estimate, and were far more thorough than the other quotes we received. They were very flexible with our tight schedule, and completed a difficult job ahead of time. They removed paneling and old wallpaper from three walls and covered our exposed brick wall so they all matched seamlessly with drywall. They covered the area well during the job and left it spotless when they were done. We would definitely recommend them!

Ideas & Inspiration from Washington Drywall & Plaster Contractors


Washington DC Drywall Installation

In Washington DC, drywall installation is a common task in new constructions and in remodels as well. Though you may sometimes find interior walls made of another material, for decades, drywall has been the standard because it is cost effective and much easier to work with than its predecessors. If you are planning a remodel in or around Washington DC, drywall installation is very likely to be a part of the process. While some homeowners might decide to tackle this job themselves, there are good reasons to hire a professional to install drywall.

Benefits of Professional Installation
If you are like most DC area homeowners, the most obvious reason to opt for professional drywall installation is to save yourself some time. When handled by experienced contractors, few drywall jobs take longer than a few days. When you compare that to the amount of time it would take to do yourself, it's easy to see why so many homeowners go the professional route.

Not only will hiring a professional significantly reduce the time it takes for most drywall installation, Washington DC homeowners are likely to get better results by hiring a professional, as well. Unlike minor drywall repairs like filling in nail holes and dents, creating a smooth, consistent surface for an interior wall is a lot harder than it looks. Certainly, the cost of hiring a pro for this job will be more expensive than doing it yourself, but many homeowners who have tackled this job quickly find out that they are simply not prepared to do it right. In these cases, beginning the job on your own and hiring a professional to finish it (and sometimes backtrack to fix mistakes) can actually end up costing you more!

Drywall Finishing
The most difficult part of drywall installation has to be finishing. While hanging the actual boards allows enough leeway to make a few mistakes, finishing is far less forgiving. In areas where an attractive, consistent surface isn't necessary (i.e. basements, garages, etc.) you may not be particularly concerned with the final look, but in highly visible areas, most homeowners prefer their walls to compliment rather than detract from the overall look. Achieving this is no easy task, and even handy homeowners who are confident in their ability to hang their drywall might be better off hiring a pro for drywall finishing. Washington DC remodels can greatly increase the value of a property, but poor drywall finishing can make what is otherwise a sound improvement look sloppy and amateurish. When it comes to drywall finishing, Washington DC homeowners might even be surprised at how affordable hiring a pro actually is, and very few will be disappointed with the results.

Drywall Installation Costs
Prices will, of course, vary from one company to the next, but in most cases, Washington DC drywall installation is not going to break the bank. According to the figures we've collected in and around the DC area, most drywall installations run somewhere in the neighborhood of $2,000 to $4,000. Though we've certainly seen some jobs go as high as $8,000, these cases are the exception rather than the norm. When you consider the hassle and time you'll save by hiring a professional, it's no wonder so many homeowners hire this job out. As one homeowner in Gainesville told us, "They did the work in about 7 days. It would have taken me 2 months of weekends and the job would not have looked as good as what they did."
