Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your issue.What type of finish is on the ceiling? just paint? sand paint? texture?
Do you want to include painting the ceiling?
The entire ceiling will probably need to be painted so the patch doesn't stand out
Well, I'll give you a range. Typical drywall ceiling flat or sand paint ~$250-300 for a drywall pro maybe $50 less for a handyman (but you may not get as good a job). If this is actually skim plaster or has a swirl or other fancy texture then you'll need a pro and $350 to $400 would be more like it. This is for both patches and reflects cost in the suburban Boston area. Does not include painting entire ceiling.
