Review by in Sandwich, IL
Project: Install Drywall
John was great to work with! We recently used his services for our bathroom remodel with a very short deadline. He was very accommodating and was able to break the project into two stages to work work with our schedule. He was very professional, the work was done quicker than he thought, and we are very happy with the end project! We will definitely be contacting him for our other projects, as well as recommending him to our friends and family!

Project: Repair Drywall
I converted a closet to a bathroom and was in need of taping and plaster work around my new door. I hired John from Stanley Drywall based on the Home Advisor reviews. The reviews are accurate. His work was excellent and he was very pleasant too. I would definitely hire him again for any of my drywall needs in the future.

Review by in Canton, GA
Project: Install Drywall
I couldn't be happier. John was a pleasure to work with. He showed up on time and left on time every day (didn't stay late into the evening). He and his helpers installed over 100 sheets of drywall in our complicated basement (lots of 45 degree angles and soffits in every room). Where John really shines is the finishing, which of course is the most important part. The quality of the finish is very high. Corners are crisp and uniform and seams are flat. The area was cleaned up and organized every day before they left. He even parked his truck on the street instead of our driveway because he noticed his truck had developed a small oil leak. All in all one of the best contractor's I've ever hired. Don't look any further; hire John to do your drywall job!

Review by in Euharlee, GA
Project: Repair Drywall
John was very quick to respond to the initial request for an estimate. His price was fair and he was able to work it into his schedule. His work is of high quality; he definitely has high standards. John made sure everything was covered and he left the place immaculate afterwards. He works fast but he definitely look his time and did an excellent job. We will definitely hire john in the future and will recommend him to others.

Review by in Cartersville, GA
Project: Install Drywall
I will say without equivocation that this is the happiest I've ever been with the hiring of a tradesman. We bought a house that the previous owner had framed out the basement of but had not put in any drywall. In addition there were many odd little hiccups involving wiring, plumbing, etc. that were not addressed by the framers. In total the job was a living room, and hallway, a kitchen, and bedroom, and a bathroom. John was not only incredibly flexible in dealing with problem that arose but seemed to have a myriad of tips and tricks in dealing with them that can only come from experience. The finished project looks amazing. The owner is not only communicative and punctual but highly detailed oriented and clearly a man who takes pride in his work. As I'm new to the Cartersville area I haven't had the best of luck in finding regular plumbers, electricians, etc. but I have absolutely found my drywall man. Five stars in every way.

Project: Install Drywall
I would definitely recommend Stanley Drywall. He came in considerably less than any of my other bids, and completed the job on time, for the exact price quoted. The walls look better than when they were built.

Owner John called in roughly 30 seconds, came out to inspect the project same day. Came back the next day to complete it. He did a great job, very personable.

Review by in Plano, IL
John did a very nice job replacing 2 of my interior doors - he replaced bi-folds with regular hinged doors, and they look very nice in my home. He used the doors I asked for and did a good job with the trim and paint. He was able to use one of the bi-folds on another closet in the house so I didn't have to purchase a new one for that. He was very honest, reliable, and friendly. I contacted him on Monday and had my new doors on Wednesday. Overall, I had a great experience with Stanley Drywall...good prices and customer service.

John Stanley was prompt, fair, professional and really impressed us with his work. His fee was reasonable and we will certainly call him again when needed. The charge listed on the next page includes the new storm door, the rocks and all other materials.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
