Drywall Services | We provide all our drywall services to both, Residential and Commercial spaces!
INSTALLATION / HANGING: Hanging drywall may be just as important as the finishing part of drywall. Our professional drywall hangers and sheetrockers understand this. Using the proper equipment and years of experience we can do a flawless job every time.
TAPING: Taping as we all know takes a special touch! All of our Sheetrock tapers have been trained by many years of hard work. Taping and drywall mudding goes on in a standard three coat process. The first coat is applying the tape coat.
FINISHING: The second is covering the tape coat with a 10 inch trowel. The third coat is a finish coat with a 12 inch trowel covering any imperfections caused by the second coat, then a final light sand to make a perfect finish.
TEXTURING: Texturing is one of our specialties! A nice ceiling texture can make the whole job turn out nice. We can match, blend or remove texture. Some of the most common textures are knock down, orange peel and popcorn. We recommend using the knockdown texture being that is easy to clean, easy to paint in the future and it gives your Minneapolis/St Paul MN home an elegant look.
PAINTING: Our painters take special care of your home. Preparing before painting starts is the most important in the process. We use a variety of different finishes of paint. The different types of finishes are important to know about.( Flat) has no shine to it, easy to repair but not recommended to wash.
(Satin) has a slight sheen to it, just a bump up from flat. (Egg shell) recommended for areas where walls or ceilings will be getting a tot of traffic or areas that need to be washed-cleaned. (Semi-gloss or high gloss) is extremely glossy looking, not recommended in areas where there is natural light or artificial light. Recommended in areas where there is heavy cooking or lots of moisture.
Walls or ceilings getting an Egg shell, semi-gloss or high gloss finish will need to be prepared to a level 4 or 5 finish, which may cost a bit more.
DEMOLITION: This stage of work is dusty and messy. We take this in consideration in people’s homes. We minimize dust by setting up plastic barriers where we are working and doing a complete cleanup before we leave the project.
SMOKE-FIRE–WATER-DAMAGE: Smoke by fire or cigarette can smell in a home that never goes away. We can minimize or eliminate this problem. Depending on how extensive you want to get we can get below the carpet or behind the ceilings and walls.
Smoke, fire or water damage may be covered by your insurance company. We can contact your insurance company to save you money!
