Drywall Finishing & Installation

Drywall finishing is defined as the process of preparing unfinished interior drywall panels for painting by applying paper or fiberglass tape over the joints and imperfections between pieces of installed drywall, then covering the taped seams and filling the screw or nail holes with drywall compound. Our process includes spreading a joining compound along each side of two hanging drywall panels and using a paper tape to cover the seams between panels, resulting in a uniform surface.

In much simpler terms, the purpose of drywall finishing is to accomplish one goal: to make the joints and seams and imperfections on and between drywall panels disappear. It ensures the walls and ceilings are perfectly smooth so once painted you have a clean, professional finish.

The process of Drywall Finishing is not hard, but takes some finesse. An overview of the steps to the process are as follows: 

  1. Prepare your surface
  2. Apply your paper tape
  3. Apply Fiberglass tape
  4. Finish inside corners
  5. Finish outside corners and screw or nail heads
  6. Apply your fill coat
  7. Apply your finish coat
  8. Sand the dried compound
