Cost to have a drywall person come in and clean up the walls and ceiling?


I did the remodel myself and the only thing I would never do again would be the drywall. The walls look great but the ceiling and where the ceiling meets the wall is a mess. Anyway, I really want it cleaned up to match how great the rest of the room looks but there is no way I'm going to try it myself. I'm guessing a skim-coat will solve most of the issues so what should I expect to pay to have someone come in and fix the mistakes. Is this something most companies will even do?

I have no idea about where you live. I know a professional drywall guy who can make anything look good. We called him in to fix a crack in the ceiling of our new house. He fixed an area about 3 feet by 10 feet (an L shape) and textured it similar to the original for about $300.

Massachusetts. The ceiling has no texture I would prefer to just have it smoothed out.

pics help but our price may not be the same as the price where you are
you can be safe that if it is a whole room you are going to spend at least 100$ and up unless you have a buddy in the buisness
you can fix it and it is really easy
if you want step by step instructions let me know i can walk you through the process

Prices vary widely from region to region. Depends on what exactly needs to be done. Is the tape not properly adhered to the drywall, causing "blisters/loose tape?? The tape would need to come out and done properly. Is it just something that can be skimmed?? The person doing the repair would have to make that call. Ask friends/neighbors for referrals for a competent finisher and get a quote or two......
