I called Allen's Drywall Service to remove a popcorn ceiling, repair drywall in some areas and apply new 'knock-down' texture to the ceiling and 'orange peel' texture to the walls. Unfortunately I wasn't entirely happy with the result and feel that the job was rushed.
Several areas were not properly taped off with plastic. As a result there was drywall mud on carpet, windows and a wall that is made of natural stones. They should have spent a little bit more time taping off these areas, especially the stone wall. They had very poorly attached some plastic against the stone wall. At one point I walked into the room when they were shooting the texture at the ceiling and the plastic was hanging loose. Instead of stopping to secure the plastic they just continued and much of the drywall mud ended up on the stone wall. When I addressed this one of the men attempted to clean it off with very dirty water, resulting in white streaks on the entire wall, essentially making it worse. I spent several days trying to clean it off, but it is very hard to get the white stuff off the stones. :(
Darren said that there was nothing else he could have done differently because the tape did not stick to the stones. But I disagree. A few days later I painted the ceiling and used green tape to cover that same wall. The plastic stayed on perfectly and I did not get any paint on the stones. I wish that they would have spent 15 more minutes to cover things properly.
Also, someone must have still been scraping popcorn when someone else was applying texture on the walls, because there were several large areas with popcorn stuck in the texture. There were also areas on the ceiling with popcorn still stuck under the new knock-down texture. They also left a mess outside, with drywall chunks and popcorn on my lawn and in flower beds. I am also not entirely happy with the drywall repairs. The new pieces are still 'wavy' and thicker than the rest. I think that this could have been done better.
I sent an email with my complaints, but never received a response. I might not have left this negative review if they had written back or had done anything to work things out.
I first contacted Allen's Drywall to do a room addition. They ended up doing a bedroom, covered porch and back patio. It was the greatest thing we have done to the house. It all turned out so wonderful. The workers were very considerate of us. I am going to have them back in the near future to remodel my kitchen. Thank you!!
