Texturing Drywall

Texturing drywall needs to be completed after the drywall has been hung and finished for painting. If you are not using the correct compound mixture, texturing your wall can give an otherwise bland room visual interest. Here is our step-by-step process if you want to learn more about texturing:

Cream color texture on drywall

1. In order to start off the job, we first cover all floors, window sills, doors and all other surfaces near the walls with a protective tarp. We always use painter's tape to secure the tarps.

2. We then mix mud compound by combining water and joint compound powder and mix the compound until it's the thickness of cake batter. If the mud compound is too thick, we just add water. If the mud compound is too thin, we have the option to add more powder.

3. We pour the mud compound into a painter's tray.

4. Next, we coat a long-handled paint roller with compound and roll the compound on the walls. It is important to work in small sections to prevent the compound from drying before being able to add the texture of your choice.

5. We recommend to use a flat drywall knife to smooth the drywall on the surface of the wall, so the compound forms a blank, untextured surface.

6. And finally, we add the texture you wish to see on the walls. The texture can be anything you want, from swirls made with your fingers to brush strokes made with a paint brush or indentations made with a sponge. If you're not sure what kind of texture you want to see on your walls, practice making the texture on a board before getting started. If you feel that you don't like the texture, we can always start over. Remember that the thicker and more pronounced the texture, the more difficult your walls will be to clean. Dramatic texture in a room like the kitchen, where the walls are likely to get dirty from grease and food, can create problems down the road.
