Drywall & Skim Coating

Sandman Painting & Problem-Solving offers drywall installation, plastering, taping and repairs to small and medium sized drywall installation projects (ex. rooms, basements, ceilings). Sandman has many different solutions to a wide range of drywall finishing deficiencies that can occur both immediately and in time after the drywall finishing process. Drywall contractors are sometimes very fast when they hang your drywall and the plastering process is also a job that requires speed. During the drywall hanging and drywall tape or mudding process, there are sometimes places where the drywall tape lifts or bubbles. Cracks in the ceiling or in the corners can occur and often small bumps and screw heads pop through the plaster leaving a noticeable ugly spot on what should be a smooth surface. Raised seams a little higher than others and wavy drywall will take more effort than just sanding drywall to repair.
