Drywall installation, repair & finishing for your home
Drywall has been one of the most common finishes for walls since World War II. Its smooth appearance and general versatility make it the go-to option for many homeowners. However, installing drywall as an untrained professional can be a very time consuming and even difficult process.
Drywall installation requires careful measurements and a wide selection of tools and gear ranging from face masks to drills and saws. It is far too easy to make a small mistake and ruin the appearance of a section requiring you to either start that part over or live with the disformity. The easier and more effective option is to have a team of well-trained professionals do your drywall installation for you.
Here at Bone Dry Roofing we have just such an expert team. We know just how to carefully install your drywall to avoid any complication and can also provide the retexturing that will allow your drywall to be more than just a boring sheet. We also offer comprehensive drywall repair.
Drywall Finishing Options
Drywall is often thought of as a boring building material. A simplistic and necessary piece of many homes that always has a flat generic texture. Those who know about the many retexturing methods available with a good drywall company might not be so quick to dismiss it.
There are 7 main types of drywall texturing. These are:
Popcorn Perhaps the most well-known texture. This style was popular between 1960 and 1980 and is known to be very good at hiding imperfect walls as well as dampening sound. However, it has fallen out of popularity lately and can collect dust.
Orange Peel Another relatively simple retexture. Like popcorn, this technique is good at hiding imperfections. Its name is due to its resemblance to a dimpled orange peel.
Knockdown The fancier cousin of the orange peel which is actually applied much the same way. The main difference comes at the end where a finishing knife is run over the bumps to partially smooth them. This causes it to resemble stucco but with dimples.
Skip Trowel Despite similarities to knockdown, the method of application is very different and very hard for a non-professional.This drywall texture is applied by hand with a knife and mud is applied in layers. This leaves small round circles on a smooth surface.
Comb Another skill intensive method. This method often requires a two-man team and creates a drywall texture made up of varying lines, often in a rainbow shape. One major advantage is that the technique can be customized around a variety of shapes.
Swirl This technique is another complicated piece involving a two-man team. Using a bristle brush the technicians create an arched and loose rounded pattern.
Slap Brush A broad drywall texturing technique based upon using brushes to apply texture. Sometimes this is also called "crow's feet" or "rosebud." The exact result can vary based on brush technique, but generally it creates a slightly wrinkled texture.
