Plaster/Drywall Repair


United Wall Systems are experts at drywall and plaster repair on walls and ceilings. Water damage, cracks or other imperfections can be repaired by our certified plasters. We can match any existing texture or apply a new one. Popcorn ceilings can be replaced with a more up to date texture or restored back to smooth. Custom hand troweled wall textures can add warmth and character to any room. Ornamental plaster such as “coving” can be restored or installed. All work is of the highest quality. We are professional, neat, easy to work with and our rates are reasonable. We offer free onsite consultations and free estimates. Multiple references are available from a long list of satisfied customers.

When it comes to plaster and texture, there are a lot of options.
Below are just a few.

Plaster & Drywall Q & A

I want to have my “popcorn ceiling texture” removed. What are my options?
There are three main options for a final finish. The first option would be to go to smooth. This is the most expensive because it requires the most work to achieve.

The second option would be to go to a “knock down dash” or what some people call an “orange peel” texture. The third option and by far the most popular for us is a “plaster hand trowel” texture. Our clients love it because it looks great and has a very custom look. It is also the most reasonable in cost.

I have water damage to my ceilings. Does the ceiling have to be completely removed?
No. In most cases the ceiling can be restored by repairing and patching the worst areas and blending those areas into the rest of the ceiling.

I have cracks in my ceilings and walls. Can these be repaired?
Yes. We are experts at repair and patching of cracks permanently.

What is “skim coating”?
Skim coating is when a thin coat of either plaster or drywall compound is applied over the entire surface of the wall or ceiling to achieve a smooth, paint ready finish.

I own an old home with plaster walls that are textured. Can this texture be matched?
Yes. We are very good at matching the old school textures that were applied back in the early 1900’s.

How do I find out how much my plaster or drywall restoration will cost?
We will come to your home, look at the project, discuss your options, and provide you with information about our company. We will also provide you with a written estimate and answer all of your questions. The estimate is free.


Great price and value – there were no surprises on the final bill. Great honesty and integrity – there were no unfulfilled promises. Great clean up – there was no mess when they left. Great job – I now have a fantastic looking house that is worth more than when they started. I am 100% satisfied and would recommend United Wall Systems to anyone looking to beautify and add value to their home.

John & Jeff, Thanks so much for the hard work. You guys did a great job and we appreciate it. You were 1 of 2 contractors that were easy to deal with. The rest was a nightmare! Thanks Again

I found John from United Wall Systems at the Home and Garden Show in MPLS 2008. I was looking for a stucco company, and not one of the large brand companies. 3 areas of my house needed a lot of repair before the stucco job. John and his crew did a great job on the repairs and the stucco job. At the end of the project they cleaned up, I did not have any cleaning to do after they left. I did not shop around for a stucco company as soon as I met John I felt he was the right person for me. I recommend the United Wall Systems. P.S. My house looks nice. My neighbors have all...

John, I’m very pleased to send you and “United Wall Systems” my recommendation. After having built and contracted several homes I chose your company for two reasons when I chose to use stucco. You came highly recommended and I personally checked on many of your jobs in this area and the quality of application was very obvious. Not only did you do a very nice looking job on our first stucco home, but we sustained none of the problems that have been associated with this industry in the past few years, and that’s the proof of excellence in workmanship, knowledge and performance....

We have all heard “Save the best for Last”. Thanks to the masterful craftsmanship, work ethic and attention to detail you and your dedicated specialists made that a reality for Nancy and I, in our now complete dream home. Working with you and your men made this project the very best part of the experience of building a new home. Even though Mother Nature blessed us with rain, wind and some unfortunate frigid temperatures, production never suffered and you were unwavering in your dedication and integrity in furnishing us a beautiful stucco finish to our home. Just looking at the...

I LOVE IT! The stucco work for our chimney was even better than I imagined it would be. The finish put on there was very elegant, and the stucco color perfectly matches our home. It looks like it has always been part of the house. There is not even one sign of the ugly brick that was falling off in pieces or the bad condition of the grout. The “new” chimney is simply gorgeous. As always, you are professional, and everyone working with you is professional as well. The work was completed on time, and everything was cleaned up when the job was finished. You are always so good to call...
Linda & Nels O. – Apple Valley
As we were evaluating contractors and “handy men” to help restore the three rooms we needed done in a time-crunch most of them seemed uncomfortable with the work being requested, and time frame, especially when we mentioned that we wanted “smooth walls” at the end. Several quoted us two to three times what United Wall Systems did but when we asked about qualifications of the people doing the work, they had far less experience than United Wall Systems and appeared to be general contractors outsourcing the work to other sub-contractors. When we asked about experience with “old...

John and crew did a beautiful job start to finish. They took care to cover the floor, windows, and finished ledges with plastic sheeting. Furnace air return ducts were covered while working and they applied masking tape to the lower level entry door to block dust from the upper level. They showed up on time each day and worked hard until completing the work planned for the day, most days not even stopping for lunch. They gave me a walk through and progress report, as well as a plan for the next day before leaving. They were respectful of the fact that I was working from home in the upper...

I highly recommend United Wall Systems. I have had the pleasure to work with them on three separate occasions. From ceiling repair (who knew my ceilings could look so fabulous), to exterior stucco Repair, every project has left me completely satisfied. I had them repair my garage a year after my house was done and they even saved my house color and matched it perfectly to the garage. Kind, professional, trustworthy and tidy! I love working with these guys.
