Finishing Drywall

Drywall finishing, though one of the last steps in the drywall hanging process, can easily be considered as one of the most important part of the process. A proper finishing job will ensure that your drywall looks professional, smooth and square. Although finishing does take certain artistry, we always recommend the expertise from professional carpenters to get the job done.

1. To prepare for a great finish, our drywall experts stir the compound in the bucket until the mixture is smooth. We use a drill paddle or some other mixing tool to stir the water in the compound back into the mixture. We put the drill on a slow speed to avoid spills.

2. Next, we sand down any bumps on the drywall and tear off any bits of paper and other rough patches on the walls.

3. We then place mesh tape over all the joints between sheets of drywall. And, we put tape on the vertical seams, then on the horizontal seams, then on the corners. What is important here is not to overlap the tape when two pieces cross each other. Instead, we make sure we tear the pieces of tape and put the tape only on seams that haven't been covered with mesh.

4. We then continue and use the drywall knife to cover the mesh tape with joint compound. We use the knife to remove the excess compound so there is no extra joint compound anywhere on the wall.

5. Next, we use the compound to fill any holes (like indentations made by screws) in the drywall.

6. It is important to allow the joint compound to dry fully and use a larger drywall knife to put another coat of compound on the mesh. A little trick is to "feather" the edges of the compound, meaning that the compound gets thinner and thinner at the outer edges of the application.

7. Last but not least, we sand the joint compound and vacuum any dust on the wall and repeat step 6.

8. To finish off the procedure, we sand down the joint compound that we used to fill the holes in the drywall.
