"Grady has done a wonderful job on repairs to our cemetery chapel. We had significant damage to the ceiling in the chapel which was built in1922 using the old methods with horsehair and pig bristle. Grady's repairs look exactly like the original ceiling's plaster work. I will recommend Mr. Grady's craftsmanship to everyone. Excellent work. Bob Morris VP Trustee Cortland Rural Cemetery "

"Ed was very responsive to my initial inquiry and came promptly to discuss what we needed. We had a bedroom with very damaged walls from wallpaper and removal of built-ins, as well as ceiling damage from a leak in the kitchen. Ed and his crew arrived when they said they would and completed the work in one day. Their work was excellent. The price was fair and they cleaned up perfectly before leaving. I will call Ed in the future and highly recommend him. He turned a nightmare into a room ready to paint!"

"Cruz and his team did an awesome job! We demoed the 70’s paneling in our family room and they replaced it all with drywall, put thin sheetrock over the old textured ceiling, and put crown molding and baseboards. It is a complete transformation! (They also did other drywall repairs and crown molding in the home.) They were extremely punctual and worked efficiently. (That said, they were also flexible when we needed an extra day to finish the demo work.) I would highly recommend them!"

A damaged ceiling is often the first sign something might be wrong in your house. Soft sheetrock or visible water spots warn you about a potential plumbing problem. Cracks around the door frames and windows are a sign of potential foundation damage. Thin, straight cracks or separation in the corners of the room are also a sign of age. But once you diagnose the problem, don't let cracks and stains linger. Find a local ceiling repair company that can repair the damage.

Local ceiling contractors can be onsite quickly and remove damaged drywall before the problem spreads. Whether you have moisture damage or holes in your drywall from repairs, experts can seamlessly replace the material with no gaps or bumps. Ceiling repair contractors can even remove old popcorn finishes. If you have less serious damage, like holes form drywall anchors and light fixtures, they can patch the surface. Hiring a local service also means you save money on material and transportation costs.

If you are concerned about the cracks, holes, and softened patches in your ceiling, call in an expert. Type in your zip code and HomeAdvisor will find ceiling repair services in your area.
