A good company/person for drywall work?

wall with hole in itSean emails:

I live in Albany and have an upcoming renovation project and would love nothing more than to pay someone else to do the drywall work. In the past, my wife and I enjoyed learning + doing it the first time, grumbled our way through it the second time... and are now loathing the prospect of having to do it a third time. Would any of your readers happen to know a person or company they could recommend that might be able to spare us from this misery and gladly take our money??? Please please please!

Sometimes the lesson of a DIY project is that you shouldn't do it yourself. And there's nothing wrong with that.

So, got a suggestion or advice for Sean and his wife? Please share!

He does dry wall and plaster work. I had the walls of one of my apartments skimmed because they were "stucco" and dated. He did good work, quickly, and reasonably priced for the speed and quality.

David at Albany Home Remodeling is fantastic. I highly recommend him, based on the quality of his work, attention to detail and fair and pricing. He's my top choice in the area and everyone I know who's used him for work on their home has been very happy with his work. Definitely give him a call for a consultation... 518-366-9410

CAOD, when you say 'plaster work' does that also include redoing lathe and plaster walls? I have a wall that sustained water damage from leaking chimney flashing and would prefer to redo that portion of the wall (if that's even possible) rather than replacing the entire wall with drywall.

Hello...are you still looking for a drywall company? I just came across your post. My husband and I just started a new company in Albany, The Drywall Man. Dan brings over 30 years of drywall experience to the table. He is a master! Please give us a call if you need help.
Thank you,

Washington Avenue definitely needs more than one lane in each direction, but that doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. They can reduce the size of the lanes, add a median, and add a protected bike lane where the shoulder of the road now lies. I agree, however, that the entire Harriman loop would have to be redesigned and that includes those over-passes, so this would be an extremely expensive undertaking if they want to do it right. But there could be significant development on the land that is now wasted by asphalt that could offset that cost and bulk up the tax base for the city.
