The Art of Drywall Finishing

Generally, one doesn't think about drywall finishing and art in the same sentence. However, if you have ever painted or hung wallpaper over a badly finished drywall job, you understand the phrase, the art of drywall finishing. As drywall finishing contractors, Definitive Drywall, technicians know their craft and excel at making your walls and ceilings a seamless canvas for your wall treatments.

Before drywall finishing can be started, the drywall has to be installed correctly. Proper preparation is essential to a quality-finished product. Drywall screws should be used instead of nails and each should be slightly counter sunk to create a slight dimple without breaking the paper. The boards need to be tightly attached to the studs and ceiling joints with little or no seam gaps. As a premier drywall finishing contractor, we work as a team and make sure the drywall is correctly installed for the best wall and ceiling surfaces.

Applying mud and tape on seams and the inside and outside corners, requires the coordination and great skill that our drywall finishing contractors possess. When properly done, drywall mudding and taping make seamless surfaces on walls and ceilings. Once our drywall finishing contractors sand, clean and prime the surfaces it is ready for texturing.

Allow our artisans to install and finish the drywall for any new build, remodeling project or repair for homes and businesses. Definitive Drywall endeavors to be the high-quality drywall contractor of choice for the entire Puget Sound area.

The Art of Drywall Texturing

After our Definitive Drywall technicians have expertly installed, taped and primed the drywall in your home or business, we inspect the entire installation using a handheld low-intensity light to reveal any imperfections we may have missed. This allows us the opportunity to make sure your walls and ceilings will look seamless after texturing.To see our work, please view our gallery of completed projects.

Although the word texture can imply a wall or ceiling will have a raised and somewhat uneven pattern, in reality the word texture can mean anything from an ultra-smooth coating to a heavy splatter. Our technicians want you to be happy with the final product and for this reason we will show you different texture styles so you can choose the one that is the most appealing.

Most commonly, we use a sprayer to apply drywall compound to texture walls and ceilings. This allows us to spray a consistent pattern throughout your home or business. From a light fog that barely has a texture to a heavy splatter that can create highlights and shadows when painted, we will make sure you are satisfied with the finished texture.

As all of our technicians have the experience and techniques necessary for all drywall applications, we also provide hand-applied or hand-finished textures. Definitive Drywall technicians can apply smooth, knock down, skip trowel or brocade textures. We can create anything from a contemporary look to a rustic look on the walls of your home or business.
