repairing walls,ceilings,texture, after poly B plumbing replaced

We just had our poly B plumbing, removed, and were referred to Glacier Drywall Systems to now repair about 7+ holes in the walls, And about 9 holes in the ceiling, and then texturing the full ceiling of the family room, one hole in the guest bedroom.The firm sent this estimater, Doug,to basically “talk me off the ledge”. It didn’t take long for my wife and I to see this tradesman, was really a skilled artist in his own right, as he walked us thru the process. Not sure if I ever ran into a tradesman that had such a passion for his work. He not only talked the walk, but he also walked the talk. Those patches were mudded,taped,sanded..and there was no evidence of any holes. He had that skill, touch. The challenge to come was to patch the ceiling, and re-texture a textured ceiling. Doug could hardly wait to start, knowing, that we would not be able to see any “patched holes”, even tho we knew where they were. You could run the palm of your hand along the wall, and you would not be able to detect any evidence of a previous hole. Doug had a couple other tradesmen to help on part of the job…they were just as precise as he was. Our home is 27yrs old..the walls,ceilings, are as if it were a new home. When they left….my house was left cleaned up as they first saw it.
I can’t say enough about the pride they took in their work. They were very accommodating thru out the process.

Thank-you for your detailed description in your review. It is very difficult for me to describe how good Doug is but you clearly articulated his skills and his passion for what he does. Pride in his trade is very evident as he does his work. Thank-you for your business and if you ever move and need some renovations or make some additions to your home, we do patches, ceiling conversions, basements, and full renovations.

Merry Christmas to you and your family,

Be blessed,

Bob

Bathroom drywall fix and ceiling texture

Quick communication and priced fairly, actually came in under estimate which was nice. Helpful crew who also gave me tips on what I did wrong. It wasn't a huge job so was grateful they took it on. Would recommend their company and services to others.

DRYWALL REPAIR

It was a small repair job to a wall and ceiling, but I was very concerned about the finish on the ceiling and whether or not it would match the existing. Well, I'm happy to say that Bob was true to his word. The wall looks great and the ceiling is perfect. I couldn't see the transition once it dried. Doug did an amazing job. The cost was reasonable and I would definitely use Glacier Drywall Systems again. I highly recommend this company.

ceiling repair and conversion

The team at Glacier drywall did a great job of fixing some fairly large cracks in our ceiling as well as removing the popcorn for a paint ready flat ceiling finish.

Would highly recommend them for any drywall projects you have and will certainly use them again for any work we need.

Thanks Bob, Doug and Team.

Drywall repair in basement

Called Glacier drywall because they had great reviews. Happy to add another one. I had some renos done a few years ago that left an exposed gas line and openings in the dry wall. Doug and team made a nice bulkhead to cover the line and repaired the wall. They took the time to keep the site clean, laid down carpet protector and plastic sheets for the TV and kitchen. Job was done in 3 days and cost was same as quoted. Would definitely hire them again.

Basement mudding and taping

Their estimate was way off. Ended up paying $1400 more on the job, even though it took a 2 hour detailed inspection to provide the initial quote. It would have been nice to go with a close estimate from the beginning to budget my work.

I spoke to Bob And he will send someone to treat dents after priming.

I find it surprising that the first time I hear about the post prime appearance of the holes and dents is on Homestars review. All you had to do was call me and we would do a post prime touchup. You don't have to touch the walls. In fact, I will contact you immediately and offer to do that for free. We include that service as part of the quote.
As for the price; let's be honest the DIY boarding was very poor. When Doug was on site doing the review, he requested that you install additional screws on most of the sheets. That didn't happen by the time we arrived to start the taping process.
What Doug was unable to see at the time of the site review for quoting the project, is that you had not installed any framing when you installed the drywall sheets. He could not know that until he arrived to start installing concrete fill to close up the large gaps. That's when he realized that there was no wood framing so many of the sheets had to come down, framing installed and reboard. Then we had to install the screws. Those are the costs that added up to the extra charge. I do not want to be confrontational but I had Doug stop the work and bring you down to the basement to show you what he had to do. You gave us a new $ cost as a result and we came in $350 under that upper limit. We were transparent about this adjustment Mohamed. The texture was always an optional cost.

For DIY handymen here is the rule; if the last wall stud or joist is further than 4" away from the end of the wall or ceiling to wall then wood must be installed (or steel) to make sure that the drywall does not flex away from the corner when pressure is applied to install tapes or mud. Otherwise the tapes will crack.

I am sorry that you are disappointed in the extra charges but the problem was hidden by the boarded walls and could not have been anticipated during the site review. I will be in touch today to make arrangements for me to send a taper to complete the post prime touchup

California Knock Down Ceiling Repair

We had a plumbing pipe break in our home, which caused leaking through our ceiling on the main floor. Bob at Glacier and his staff were great to work with. They did an excellent job patching up the cuts into the ceiling, and then finishing the texturing. You can’t tell where the cuts were made. They kept me informed of when they would be coming and the process involved with fixing the ceiling. The quality of the work done is exceptional and the price was excellent. I would highly recommend Glacier Drywall Systems.
