We hope those of you that are located in the Pacific Northwest have really developed that immunity to rain that we all need. If you are wondering what rain I am talking about, you belong here! Nonetheless, it has made for a great opportunity for those of you who are skiers to get up on the slopes and enjoy some great snow.
We have been working on a commercial drywall project, a residential drywall project, and a couple of commercial wallcovering projects over the last couple of weeks.
It seems fairly often that questions come up regarding the different levels of drywall work. There are different levels of finishing that range from Level 0 to Level 5. These levels are defined in industry literature and by different industry associations. Simply stated:
Level 0: No taping.
Level 1: All joints and angles will be taped.
Level 2: Level 1, plus all tape and nail/screw heads will have a topcoat.
Level 3: Level 2, plus an additional topcoat.
Level 4: Level 3, plus an additional topcoat.
Level 5: Level 4, plus a full skim coat over the entire surface.
It is very important that you are in agreement on what level of finishing you desire and understand what that level entails. This can really help to prevent disagreements down the road.
For those of you who are ready to tackle their projects for this year, we are available to help with your drywall, painting, and wallpapering needs.
Thanks for checking in,
