Drywall is the most commonly used material for interior walls. Since it's a relatively soft material it is prone to getting damaged, but it's also quite easy for a drywaller to repair.
Level 2 finishes involve the use of drywall tape, and thin layers of a goopy joint compound over the tape and the screw holes in the drywall. Depending on your desired drywall finish, you can add a third layer of compound and one coat of sanding, the highest possible drywall finish.
Note that some drywall installers have found that they can more easily allow drywall joint compound to dry overnight during this phase, then apply the second layer using a sander to an 8-in. Yes, the compound takes time to dry, but do not try to speed up your drywall tack-and-tape process by applying multiple, thick coats. Applying drywall tape and compound is a fast process, but compound needs at least 12 hours of drying time between each coat.
To help these joints look less obvious, apply your first coat of mud and the joint tape like normal, but put an extra swath - eight to 10 inches wide - over each side of your second coat of mud. These joints are easier to seal, since a depression is formed in the longer edges of the drywall panels. While the conventional drywall joints (where the long sides of both panels satisfy) have a bevel at the manufacturing facility to fit the four-inch covering of compound, the sash joints (where completions of both panels satisfy) do not.

What Our Clients Are Saying.
I used Home Drywall & Painting to get rid of the outdated popcorn ceiling throughout my older St. Paul house. Not knowing anything when it comes to anything about home improvements, they answered all of my questions and concerns I had, and answered them in a way that I could understand. The work was done in a timely and professional manner, and gave my home an updated look that it so badly needed (it got rid of that 1970's disco look). I would highly recommended them to do any kind of remodeling or drywall work. From the first moment I called (and was greeted on the phone by Danny) to the end of the work I have nothing but positive things to say. 10/10.

I was referred to Home Drywall by a neighbor that had their popcorn ceilings removed. I was able to see the work and it looks great! They came out to give me an estimate, pretty quickly after that, a crew was at my house. I had a knockdown texture done on all my ceilings, then I ask them to paint my kitchen and living room. I was very happy with the quality of the work and repairs and with my oversight manager.
John D. - Saint Louis Park, MN
We had a big job, with a plaster ceiling falling down in 2 places, and cracks in the walls. No smaller independent contractors were willing to do it. Jorge from Home Drywall gave a quick estimate and the project started 4 weeks later. They removed one ceiling completely and replaced it with drywall. The other ceiling was over a high stairwell that required high skill. Horacio and crew did a nice job drywalling the whole ceiling. Finally, they skim coated the whole stairwell to cover cracks in the plaster. They even skim coated a separate section of wall, adding to the original job. They were always punctual and communicated their schedule. They accommodated our schedule one day when we needed them not to come. Overall I am pleased with the quality of what was a big and messy job.
