Or we can be a complete turnkey drywall service contractor in southeast Wisconsin. Our top quality finishers and installers will meet any of your needs.
Types of Finishes
We can do any type or level of finish you desire. A trend we've been seeing in some newer homes recently is a Level 4 or Level 5 finish. Here's a quick recap of all types of drywall finishes
Level 0 : Literally just hanging the drywall on the studs. Nothing more.
Level 1 : You are applying and embedding the tape in the joint compound. Nothing more.
Level 2 : You're applying a thin coat of joint compound over the tape and also covered the screws from the drywall installation.
Level 3 : Now you'd apply a second coat of joint compound to the tape and the screws. This should cover up the screw holes and taping completely now.
Level 4 : The standard and most common form of finishing these days. Here you apply another coat of joint compound and do some light sanding to smooth the surface.
Level 5 : The premium finish where you are applying the "mud" as a super skim coat. The three ways to apply this skim coat are: a roller, with a taping knife (what you see most people do on TV), or a spraying device. Typically sprayers are only used by high end professionals as it's quick and easy, but the sprayer is expensive for normal DIYers.
Why Glue and Screw Is The Best Drywall Installation
Some "lesser quality" contractors will try to cheat a customer with a nailed-in slab of sheet rock. Nailing a slab of drywall into place isn't bad, it's just not great quality these days. We know better at Milwaukee Drywall Pros.
Our recommendation is always to "Glue & Screw" the drywall to the studs. This option is slightly more expensive, but let's discuss the reasons why you would actually want this option more.
First, nails pop out of place often. This can cause issues with your warranty later on because this can be deemed "unforeseen events." If a contractor ever recommends using nails, be cautious.
The reason we recommend glue is because it creates a much better bond between the drywall and the stud. This helps reduce stress cracks over time if the stud were to ever try shifting subtly with the home. It's always up to you, but we will always recommend the glue and screw method.
